10 Best Rivalries In AEW History (So Far)

10 best AEW rivalries so far

From a tweet by Dave Meltzer to a record-breaking indie show to the second-largest wrestling company in North America, the story of All Elite Wrestling is as intriguing and uplifting as it is complicated and frustrating.

The promotion was founded by Tony Khan, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and Cody Rhodes back in January 2019 and AEW quickly established itself as AEW's biggest competition since the shuttering of WCW in 2001. All Elite Wrestling have put together a whole host of great storylines and feuds over the promotion's first five years.

These are the 10 best rivalries in AEW history (so far). 

10. The Elite Vs. Blackpool Combat Club

Jon Moxley. Bryan Danielson. Kenny Omega. The Young Bucks. Hangman Adam Page. Claudio Castagnoli. These are just some of the all-star names involved in this rivalry between two of the biggest stables in AEW history. And also Wheeler Yuta, whose star power doesn’t quite match up, but he did add his fair share of quality to this rivalry.  

What began as the Blackpool Combat Club picking on Page (following the excellent Jon Moxley vs. Hangman Page feud) soon turned into a full-on skirmish between the BCC and Hangman’s “friends” in The Elite. “Friends” is in the biggest inverted commas of all time. In a storyline that also encompassed Omega’s feud with Don Callis - this is where Don turned on his charge by screwdrivering him in the head - the two units faced off in three major matches in quick succession. 

The first was Anarchy in the Arena at Double or Nothing, which the BCC won after Konosuke Takeshita turned on the Elite. Then came a tag match at Forbidden Door, where the good guys got their win back with the help of Eddie Kingston and Tomohiro Ishii. Finally came Blood and Guts, a near hour-long match which The Elite won by beating the toffee out of Wheeler Yuta until Jon Moxley quit to protect the youngest member of the BCC.
