On October 2, 2020, All Elite Wrestling celebrated the first anniversary of its flagship series, AEW Dynamite. It’s surreal to think that it has been over 365 days since the new company brought professional wrestling back to TNT, creating some much-needed parity in the sport. Although the new venture ended 2019 on a high note, The Elite, and its growing roster, continued to reshape the image of mainstream wrestling throughout 2020, presenting dynamic performers from unconventional weight classes, different backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
