In 2018, All In was the biggest independent wrestling show of all time. Selling out a 10,000+ arena is no easy task, and the wrestlers/promoters of The Elite did it in under 30 minutes. From this success spung the new promotion All Elite Wrestling, and AEW is ready to present its first branded PPV on Saturday, May 25.
Taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, AEW’s first major event is Double or Nothing. The show will feature a mix of new and familiar faces to wrestling fans, featuring talent from all around the world. As of this writing, there are 10 matches on the Double or Nothing card with two taking place on the pre-show, titled The Buy-In.

WarnerMedia announced that AEW will have a weekly show on TNT, once the home to WCW, but the Double or Nothing PPV will appear on multiple streaming services, depending on your location.
