Last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite saw The Elite get into the Halloween spirit when Kenny Omega made an entrance dressed as Sans from Undertale and The Young Bucks brought back the Street Fighter cosplay they work at Fyter Fest. (The Rick and Morty costumes could also count, but those were more in the spirit of advertising.) Today, a new episode of Being The Elite keeps the Halloween celebration going with more costumes and some spooky vignettes.
The Elite have gone all out for Halloween since they were just the trio of Omega and the Bucks. They did a Ghostbusters entrance in New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2016 and Omega, Marty Scurll, and Chase Owens dressed up as characters from Aladdin for an NJPW match in 2017. This time last year the BTE crew were on the Jericho Cruise, where they dressed up as Mario game characters and released a special Halloween episode.
This year’s Halloween special, partially filmed backstage at Dynamite, ups the production value again. It opens with an animated Toy Story parody that contains meta-jokes about AEW. The episode continues with Private Party in Spider-Man costumes, a sketch in which Matt Jackson is haunted by bad merch, Adam Page going into a trance to visit the now-deceased horse he rode for his All Out entrance, and more. Overall, it’s somewhat spooky and very festive. Happy Halloween, everybody!
