All Elite Wrestling’s Double Or Nothing PPV Event, which was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 23rd from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada may see a change in either the date, the venue or both due to the coronavirus pandemic.
MGM Resorts International, which is the company in charge of all the operations, shows and events emanating from their venue, recently announced that they are temporarily suspending operations at all properties in Las Vegas until further notice, and this started effective this past Tuesday. It was also announced that casino operations closed on Monday, followed by hotel operations and that MGM will not be taking reservations prior to May 1st.
MGM Chairman and CEO Jim Murren said that the temporary suspension of their operations are for the good of their employees, guests and communities and that more details will be said soon on closing procedures, timelines and other issues related to the temporary suspension of operations.
This announcement by the MGM Management reportedly came shortly after the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) issued a new guidance that recommends organizers cancel or postpone events with more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks.
The finals of the TNT Championship Tournament was set to take place at Double Or Nothing, but due to the changes, the finals may still take place at Double Or Nothing, with the new date or be moved to a different event altogether. More updates will be provided on AEW’s Double Or Nothing PPV Event as soon as it becomes available.
