With the AEW Video Game deep into production, we’ll be looking at all the confirmed members of the roster in the game so far. Only a handful of pieces of information have been revealed so far about the game. Fans are desperate to know who is part of the AEW Video Game roster.
This article will go through which wrestlers have been included in trailers, screenshots and sneak peaks by the developers, to figure out which stars will be playable in the game. We await more information from the developers and will update this match as new information becomes available.
AEW Video Game Roster
Darby Allin has been confirmed as part of the AEW Video Game roster. He made an appearance in the latest sneak peak trailer for the AEW video game, showcasing his model and selection of signature moves against a unnamed green opponent.
Allin is the first wrestler shown in the new, realistic style, which differs from the previous cartoony, exaggerated models from the initial trailer.
Darby Allin is a former TNT Champion and one of the top stars in AEW. His recognisable face paint makes him stand out in the crowd, and his complete disregard for his own safety has likened him to a young Jeff Hardy. Allin currently teams with WCW Legend Sting, and is set to face CM Punk at All Out on September 5th 2021.
Kenny Omega was the first man confirmed to be part of the AEW Video Game roster. He was shown in the original video game trailer, facing off with Chris Jericho and then Hikaru Shida. He performed all his signature moves, and appeared in a more exaggerated version of himself.
It is likely Kenny Omega’s model will be changed to keep him in line with the new style as shown by Darby Allin.
Kenny Omega is the current AEW champion and part of the menacing heel faction “The Elite”. He is currently embroiled in rivalries with both Christian Cage and “Hangman” Adam Page over the AEW Championship. Neither men so far have been confirmed for the game
WCW, WWE and AEW legend Chris Jericho has also been confirmed. He was the second man shown in the initial trailer, fighting Kenny Omega. This has confirmed his as part of the AEW Video Game Roster for the time being.
With his match at All Out against MJF putting his career on the line, there is a possibility that he will be included only as a non-wrestling role, or even as a Legend rather than active superstar, should he lose that match.
Chris Jericho was the first AEW Champion, and is the leader of the group “The Inner Circle”. So far, none of the Inner Circle members besides from Jericho have been confirmed.
Hikaru Shide is the first woman confirmed as part of the AEW Video Game roster. The Japanese star was shown fighting Kenny Omega in the original trailer, hitting him with her signature Shining Wizard move.
From the trailer, it looks as though intergender wrestling will be a part of the AEW Video Game. This is a feature absent from WWE games for many years. It will be a welcome addition to the AEW Game.
Hikaru Shida is currently the only woman confirmed for the AEW Video Game, although I’m sure many more will be added in the future.
On Wednesday 8 September, Jungle Boy was announced as the latest addition to the AEW Video Game Roster. Jungle Boy was revealed on an AEW Games stream, showing him performing his signature moves on Darby Allin.
AEW Games showed in game footage of the man JR calls “Jungle Jack Perry”. It showed close ups of his character model, as well as all of his signature moves annd mannerisms. His entrance, without partner Luchasaurus, was also shown.
Neither Luchasaurus nor Marko Stunt, Jungle Boy’s Jurassic Express partners, have yet to be confirmed for the AEW video game roster.
Fans of the King of Harts can finally rejoice! AEW announced they had secured a partnership on the 20th September 2021 with the Owen Hart Foundation. This means AEW will honour the legacy of Owen Hart in a number of ways. These include new Owen Hart merchandise, a Owen Hart Cup tournament, and an appearance on the AEW Video Game Roster.
No footage of the King of Harts has been shown, but his appearance was confirmed by a press release from AEW. It will be Owen Hart’s first appearance in a video game since 2004’s Showdown: Legends of Wrestling. So far there has been no confirmation of any other Hart’s being included in the AEW video game roster. Bret Hart has made an appearance in AEW but is not confirmed. Owen Hart is the first AEW video game legend.
