A quick, no BS guide to unlocking all the Hidden Wrestlers in AEW Fight Forever
Cody Rhodes & Aubrey Edwards
Both can be purchased with in game cash in the shop tab. Play a few matches to rank up some money and purchase them to unlock them for use in Road to Elite and Exhibition.
Mr. Brodie Lee
The late, great Brodie Lee. This one is a bit tougher to unlock as it requires a bit of luck. To unlock The Exhalted One you must play through the story block “Join The Dark Order” and beat Mr Brodie Lee for the TNT Championship. Then you will be able to purchase him in the Shop tab under “Other Items” for $30,000 in game cash.
Getting the story is the hardest part here as it is completely random. I got it on stream playing as Kris Statlander. Im not sure if that helps chances, but thought it would be nice to add.

The man once known as Captain Insano and the Big Show.
In chapter 4 you need to get the storyline called “Who’s Ribbing Me”. Play through it as per usual but when you come to a part where your character is broke down on the side of the road and has to walk to the Arena, Nick Jackson will tell you you have 3 minutes to fight Paul Wight. Defeating him will grant you the ability to purchase him in the shop tab also for $30,000
This fight can be EXTREMELY hard with the time limit. Paul Wight cannot be picked up, so you’ll only be able to strike and use strike grapples (Lockup, followed by a punch or kick button).
Fear not, dear reader of guides, There is a way to cheese this fight.
If you have the credits to buy an upgrade from the shop in Road to Elite, there is a power up that allows you have a special for the entire week, as soon as the match with Paul Wight starts, use your finisher on him 2 or 3 times and go for the pin. I did this with malakai black and won the match against Paul Wight in a blistering 16 seconds.
Alternatively, you can beat him by count out. Get him out of the ring and keep him down and when the Ref counts 9, RUN back into the ring.
The legendary Owen Hart. Beloved by millions.
To unlock Owen Hart, you have to play 50 matches in exhibition mode, and then go to the shop tab to unlock him for $50,000. This might take awhile, but feel free to explore different dream matches, recreate actual matches from the Live products, be creative!
