AEW Says Double Or Nothing 2020 Will Still Happen, But Not At Its Original Venue

As WWE makes headlines with their “essential” live television shows and Vince McMahon’s addition to President Donald Trump’s task force to restart the U.S. economy, All Elite Wrestling has been on a production hiatus, with material pre-taped for Dynamite through May, without several of the company’s top stars. Today on Twitter, AEW confirmed that the company’s next live show will be the Double or Nothing pay-per-view on May 23.

AEW’s official account tweeted that though DON 2020 will go on, it won’t be at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, which is currently closed. The company didn’t reveal where the PPV will take place, stating that “Additional details related to DOUBLE OR NOTHING, which was initially scheduled to be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, will be revealed in the weeks ahead with features of the event itself ultimately being determined by the latest guidance of national and global health authorities.”

People who bought tickets to DON can get “a refund via point of purchase or have their original ticket valid for admission” to the next Double or Nothing in front of an audience, which is scheduled for May 29, 2021, at the MGM Grand. Tickets are also being refunded to the May 27 episode of Dynamite in Las Vegas.

At this point, the two biggest wrestling pay-per-view events scheduled for next month, AEW Double or Nothing and WWE Money In The Bank, are still set to take place, despite neither having access to its original venue.
