AEW will return to Las Vegas on Saturday, May 23 for its Double or Nothing pay-per-view. The event will once again emanate from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
AEW President Tony Khan confirmed the news to Sports Illustrated.
“Last May, we sparked a revolution with our inaugural Double or Nothing pay-per-view event in Las Vegas,” said Khan. “Double or Nothing rocked the wrestling industry and led to Wednesday Night Dynamite, a top-rated weekly show on TNT reaching millions of viewers worldwide, and over 140,000 live event tickets sold to date.”
Double or Nothing was AEW's first official pay-per-view, taking place on May 25, 2019 at MGM. The event was headlined by Chris Jericho against Kenny Omega and Dustin Rhodes vs. Cody Rhodes, in what was widely considered to be one of the best matches of the year. The night was capped off by the surprise appearance of Jon Moxley, fresh off his run in WWE as Dean Ambrose.
“It’s been an incredible run, and only fitting that we return to Las Vegas to celebrate our one year anniversary with AEW’s marquee event,” said Khan. “On Saturday, May 23, Double or Nothing is back for round two at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Last year’s event changed the world of wrestling, and this year the stakes will be even higher.”
