Nachdem Anfang Januar All Elite Wrestling (AEW) ins Leben gerufen wurde steht nun auch das Datum, sowie der Austragungsort für die erste Veranstaltung fest. AEW “Double or Nothing” (Fortsetzung von “ALL IN“) findet am 25.05.2019 in der MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada statt.

Chris Jericho tauchte bei dem Promo-Event (der “AEW Rally”) auf und bestätigte seine Teilnahme an “Double or Nothing”. Er geht “all in with All Elite Wrestling”, denn ihm gehe es nicht um Geld, sondern darum etwas Neues zu erleben und Teil von etwas zu sein, dass das gesamte Wrestlinguniversum verändern wird, so Jericho.

AEW veröffentlichte später ein Video mit der Vertragsunterzeichnung Jericho’s:

Cody Rhodes und die Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson) bestätigten außerdem, dass bereits eine zweite Veranstaltung fest steht. Diese wird in Jacksonville, Florida stattfinden. Das Datum wird noch bekanntgegeben.

Hangman Page war ebenfalls bei der “Rally” anwesend und machte klar, dass er kein geringeres Ziel hat, als der erste AEW World Champion zu werden. In diesem Moment ertönte jedoch die Musik von Dragon Gate’s Open the Dream Gate Champion PAC (WWE’s Adrian Neville). Beide gingen in ein kurzes Wortgefecht, bis PAC wieder backstage verschwand. Page deutete an, wenn dies eine Herausforderung gewesen sei, würde er sie hiermit annehmen.

Statement von Shad Khan (Hauptinvestor von AEW):

“I am the lead investor, a supporter and a backer of All Elite Wrestling, and I anticipate great things today and into the future for AEW and everyone who has worked passionately on this week’s launch. I know AEW will be welcomed by wrestling fans here in the U.S. and throughout the world who are ready for something new and authentic. AEW will work hard to deliver on that promise.”

“As important, I am the father – the proud father – of Tony Khan, who will serve in a leadership role at AEW during the 2019 launch and in the years ahead. Tony will assemble a great team to take AEW over the top, for the benefit of everyone who loves the wrestling industry, while continuing to serve in his current capacities with the Jaguars and Fulham.
AEW will operate as an organization completely independently from my other interests. It will not deter attention or divert resources from any of my businesses, teams, projects or investments. At the same time, AEW will enjoy the same full commitment I given to everything and everyone in my life – my family and friends, my business and, in recent years, to sports, hospitality and now entertainment.”

Statement von Tony Khan (Geschäftsführer von AEW):

“Wrestling fans are a community unlike most others. I’ve been a part of this community since I was 7 years old, and I can tell you that wresting fans see the world every day through a special lens. We see wrestling in Hollywood films and tv shows, we see elements of wrestling in the presentation of sports and in the marketing of grandiose star athletes, and we certainly see wrestling in politics.
The wrestling community is a constant; its members are diverse, we are physically located on all corners of the planet, yet we are constantly connected. Recently, a new family has formed, bonded by love and respect for wresting but armed with a vision and resources that have never before been available to the wrestling community. Our objective is to connect our community closer than ever before through All Elite Wrestling, or AEW.
AEW does not mean any less of a continued commitment to existing obligations and duties that I have, or my family has, to our business and sports interests. That will never be the case. What’s important is that every individual decision we make as family, whether it’s ownership or investment in a team or property, is 100 percent beneficial to those specific interests. I will always welcome that accountability and responsibility, as nothing is more important than serving our supporters and friends.

AEW will launch with a roster of the top wrestlers in the world. While they’ll clash in what will be some of the most intense and fast-paced contests ever sanctioned in the squared circle, they’ll also share a common goal: to make this the true golden age, to make this the greatest time ever to be a wrestling fan. Likewise, as a business, by treating our wrestlers with respect and warmth, we also seek to make this the golden age for the performers themselves.
I urge everyone who believes in what we’re doing, or wants to believe in dreams coming true, to support AEW by spreading the word and passing the wrestling bug onto someone else. My message: Get in on the ground floor with AEW today and help lead our movement to grow the wrestling community and ensure that the voices of the wrestling fans, their creative minds and their remarkable ideas, will always be heard.”
