-AEW issued a press release ahead of their “Double or Nothing” ticket announcement party, which will take place on Feb. 7 in Las Vegas at The Splash Pool at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. The announcement teased that new signings, the ticket on sale date for “Double or Nothing,” and new partnerships would be announced by Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks.
The event will be open to fans on a limited first come first serve basis. On the most recent episode of Being the Elite, Kenny Omega found his phone and the countdown on the phone appears to match up with the day this event takes place. The press release also teases a special guest, so Omega would fit the bill as a huge signing for AEW should he appear at this event. The event will be available to watch on all of AEW’s social media channels.
“Double or Nothing” is set to take place on May 25. PWTorch has learned that AEW is hoping to break the attendance record for wrestling at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The company believes they can fit between 12 and 13 thousand fans into the arena, which would break the old attendance mark.
