Update: The AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view won’t be happening at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, it will still take place on May 23.
AEW revealed that it will still happen despite the coronavirus pandemic. They say that “features of the event itself ultimately being determined by the latest guidance of national and global health authorities.” They also confirmed the 2021 postponement and said additional information will be announced in the future.
Here’s the full statement from AEW:
All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing Pay-Per-View was always in doubt thanks to the outbreak of COVID-19, a recent message from the MGM Grand Hotel Seems to confirm the event has been rescheduled.
According to Dave Hancock on twitter, the event has been rescheduled to later this year, with May 29th 2021 as the new event date. This comes after Hancock sent a DM (direct message) to the hotel on twitter, asking if the event was still going ahead on may 23rd 2020. This comes after the report last week that MGM Resorts had closed all shows and attractions through May 31st.
However, the news that this event will be rescheduled for 2021 comes as a bit of a shock, although no official announcement for either MGM or All Elite Wrestling has been made.
In the meantime, it seems it is safe to assume that Double or Nothing will not be happening in May
Just in case you were still holding out hope that Double or Nothing was still happening in Las Vegas on Memorial Day weekend, this is the DM I just received from @MGMGrand…#AEW #AEWDoN #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/Jj82MyjIw4
