AEW's 'Double or Nothing' rally was full of HUGE surprises!
AEW's 'Double or Nothing' rally was full of HUGE surprises!

Cody and the Young Bucks announced their new promotion All Elite Wrestling on January 1st on their YouTube channel 'Being the Elite' and since then the wrestling world has been busy speculating what that will mean for professional wrestling and what 'The Elite' have got planned for us all.

They announced their first show, a sequel to 'All In' titled 'Double or Nothing' and that they'd be holding an AEW rally in Jacksonville, Florida to make some huge announcements and boy did they deliver on those huge announcements.

We got some signing announcements, an idea of which divisions the company will have, and we got one or two major surprises. So, did All Elite Wrestling's rally deliver on their promise to change the world? Well, let's look at 5 of the most jaw-dropping announcements to come from Cody and the Bucks and you tell me!

We're also going to look at a couple of things that weren't announced that everyone was expecting. What were the AEW rally's glaring omissions?

All In was a huge success, something that started as a bet between Cody Rhodes and wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer quickly turned into an independent wrestling resistance movement and a very, very good show. 

With that in mind hype for their next show 'Double or Nothing' was especially high since it was announced on January 1st, but the rest of the details surrounding when that show would take place and where were scarce, until now!

Cody and the Bucks took to the stage and made the announcement together that 'Double or Nothing' will take place on May 25th in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand arena. This is a big deal because it's the perfect place to continue the 'gambling' theme and it has a capacity of around 17,000 which means they're aiming to eclipse their 'All In' attendance.
