MGM Resorts International announced through a press release that on the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) all its properties in Las Vegas, including the Grand Garden Arena, will close their doors as of tomorrow as a measure of precaution against the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.
The MGM Grand Garden Arena is the place where AEW Double or Nothing is scheduled to take place on May 23, 2020. Although the scheduled date falls outside the cancellation or suspension period proposed by the CDC, if the date is extended, it could be jeopardized the realization of one of the most important events of All Elite Wrestling.
MGM Resorts has announced its decision to temporarily suspend operations at its Las Vegas properties until further notice, effective as of Tuesday, March 17. More information: https://t.co/uiEWL9I3wa pic.twitter.com/H5MozKGfzk

So far, All Elite Wrestling has not spoken on this topic, although in recent days they have made multiple changes to be able to make their next episodes of AEW Dynamite. This week it will take place from the Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida (where they recorded Fight for the Fallen and Dynamite’s New Year’s Edition) and will be broadcast live from TNT, as usual with restricted attendance policy.
