More information about the promotion continues to come to the forefront.

At 3 AM EST on the east coast, The Elite announced through their Being The Elite series that their rumored All Elite Wrestling promotion is no longer a rumor and that it is coming to fruition with the addition of 'Double Or Nothing' which is the follow up to 'ALL IN'.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that his sources indicated to him that Jacksonville Jaguars co-owner Tony Khan will be serving as President of All Elite Wrestling. 

The Khan family name has been rumored to be a part of a wrestling project dating back to when it was reported by SEScoops in October that Jim Ross and Chris Jericho were starting their own wrestling promotion. The report from Ryan Satin also noted that Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson and Cody are the Co-Executive Vice Presidents of All Elite Wrestling and that keeping the team that put 'ALL IN' together was a big factor in this deal. 

During this morning's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer shared that AEW is in talks with a number of television networks but nothing is official and added that Cody has signed his contract and The Young Bucks are expected to sign soon.

As mentioned in this article, 'Double Or Nothing' has been announced and more details about the event will be revealed on January 8th in Jacksonville, Florida at 'TIAA Bank Field' and also on that day, WWE is presenting SmackDown Live at the 'Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena'.
