All Elite Wrestling officially announced the first match for the 5/25 Double or Nothing event:
We are told that over 14,000 people signed up for the pre-sale codes that will be released for Monday, so the promotion is pretty much guaranteed a sellout for their first event, which is a pretty damn great way to kick things off. You can sign up and try your luck for tickets at www.AllEliteWrestling.com
All Elite Wrestling will be offering VIP packages for the first ten rows of Double or Nothing at this link, featuring "One (1) ringside ticket within the first three rows, Pre-event walk down the aisle, Have your photo taken ringside by a professional photographer, Meet & greet plus professional photo taken with AEW wrestlers, Access to an exclusive VIP lounge before the event, One (1) signed Double or Nothing event poster, One (1) commemorative VIP ticket and laminate, Early merchandise shopping and an on-site event host." There will also be packages for other ringside rows.
Kenny Omega has signed a multi-year deal with the promotion and will have the option of working for New Japan Pro Wrestling if he chooses. Matt Jackson commented:
Keith Mitchell, who has produced for WCW, Impact Wrestling and Impact spin-off Ring Ka King, among other companies, was heading production last night.
There were about 500 fans or so in attendance last night, pretty much filling the MGM Grand pool area. We are told that no fans were turned away but it was a tight squeeze.
Our friends at www.ProWrestlingTees.com have released a slew of new AEW shirts, including the first official Kenny Omega shirt at this link.
BJ Whitmer was there behind the scenes working last night.
