All Elite Wrestling (AEW) will return for the second consecutive year to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the celebration of one of its most important events, Double or Nothing. The company has recently confirmed that the event will take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, May 23.
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated has reported exclusively on the event, after confirming with the President and CEO of AEW, Tony Khan. The company will hold a new Pay-Per-Vision (PPV) event taking advantage of Memorial Day weekend in the United States for greater mobility of its fans. Khan has commented for Sports Illustrated:
“Last May we started a revolution with Double or Nothing, our inaugural PPV from Las Vegas. Double or Nothing shook the world of pro-wrestling and resulted in Wednesday Night Dynamite, a weekly show with a large audience on TNT, reaching millions of Viewers worldwide and selling more than 140,000 tickets to our events so far.
It has been an incredible stage and what better way to return to Las Vegas to celebrate the first anniversary with the main AEW show. On Saturday, May 23, Double or Nothing will return for a second round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Last year’s event changed the world of pro-wrestling and in 2020 it will be much more important. “
Tickets for Double or Nothing 2020 will go on sale next Friday, February 14. All Elite Wrestling plans to keep four PPVs on its annual calendar, with Double or Nothing in Las Vegas and All Out in Chicago as permanent venues. Tony Khan has already commented in previous interviews that he wants to keep those shows as annual traditions for his company.
