AEW Announce Changes To Double Or Nothing
The pay-per-view is one month away...
At the beginning of April, All Elite Wrestling taped over a month's worth of content at QT Marshall's gym in Norcross, Georgia. This included matches from the TNT Championship tournament and other bouts with the likes of Kenny Omega, Orange Cassidy, and Best Friends in action. However, many AEW stars like PAC, The Lucha Brothers, Hangman Adam Page, and Nyla Rose were unable to attend the tapings because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Last night, the young promotion announced their next pay-per-view, Double Or Nothing, will no longer take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. They did not reveal the new venue but the event will still be broadcast on pay-per-view on May 23. AEW will return to Las Vegas for next year's edition of Double Or Nothing on May 29, 2021.
The May 27 episode of Dynamite was also cancelled and fans will be issued a full refund within 30 days.
AEW released the following statement:
"AEW’s DOUBLE OR NOTHING event will be televised on pay-per-view as scheduled on Saturday, May 23, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). Additional details related to DOUBLE OR NOTHING, which was initially scheduled to be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, will be revealed in the weeks ahead with features of the event itself ultimately being determined by the latest guidance of national and global health authorities.
