AEW Fight Forever has been in development for a significant amount of time, and the wait has been well worth it; especially with the number of professional wrestlers who will now be playable in video games. With that in mind, I’d like to share my perspective on five pro wrestlers who stood out to me as being included in the game, before I list the complete roster.

5. Cody Rhodes

I was also surprised to see Cody Rhodes still included in the AEW Fight Forever roster, especially considering his current employment with WWE, which is AEW’s biggest competitor. However, Kenny Omega, who played a significant role in the development of the game, discussed the decision to keep Rhodes in an interview with Sports Illustrated.

“This may come as a surprise to people, but Cody is still in the game. I was very passionate about making sure his legacy and position within the company were preserved. We’ve built this game from the ground up, starting everything from scratch. That’s why I thought this game could coincide with the birth of this company. You get to experience AEW from the beginning, from day one. The game is going to reflect a lot of that, even though our locker room is ever-changing.”

Regardless of personal opinions about AEW and Kenny Omega, it’s impressive to see that they chose not to remove Rhodes from the game or downplay his involvement. This decision demonstrates AEW’s commitment to authenticity and inclusiveness. While Rhodes may be with WWE now, it’s meaningful that players can still enjoy playing as him in an AEW game.

4. Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D.

When this game was first announced a few years ago, the one women’s pro wrestler I immediately wanted to play was Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. I believe she is not only the best women’s wrestler in the game, but also in AEW as a whole. It’s really exciting that everyone can now play as Baker in this game.

3. CM Punk

AEW Fight Forever‘s cover was originally going to feature CM Punk, but due to the All Out 2022 Post Media Scum Saga, he was removed from it. There were concerns that Punk might be released from the company and not be included in the game. Fortunately, that did not happen, and Punk is still part of the game. The long hiatus of Punk not being featured in a pro wrestling video game is finally over, and it’s exciting to be able to play as him again.

2. Owen Hart

It’s truly awesome to see Owen Hart as a playable character in a pro wrestling game after a 19-year wait. Many fans are excited to finally have the opportunity to play as him. Although I wasn’t alive during Owen Hart’s wrestling career, I recognize the significant impact he made and the memories he created during his time in WWE and other promotions. Being able to experience playing as Owen Hart in 2023 is truly incredible, and I’m grateful that AEW included him in the game.

As always when I talk about Owen Hart, I made a promise that I will always mention his family’s charity called the Owen Hart Foundation. It’s a remarkable organization that aims to assist individuals and communities in need. I highly encourage others to explore and consider donating to the Owen Hart Foundation, as it continues to make a positive difference in the lives of many.

1. Brodie Lee

When I first saw Brodie Lee in this game, it brought tears to my eyes. I was a huge fan of Brodie Lee and followed his career all the way back to his Chikara wrestling days when I was just 9 years old. I loved every character he portrayed in pro wrestling, and he was absolutely amazing as “The Exalted One” in AEW. It just doesn’t feel right that Brodie Lee is no longer with us. I wish he could have been alive to see himself in this game. Even to this day, I miss him dearly as he was an incredible talent both in and out of the ring. Rest in peace, Brodie Lee.

There are plenty more professional wrestlers available to be played in this game. I have taken the initiative to create a list of the entire AEW Fight Forever roster, including the Pre-Order and DLC characters.
