6 reasons why everyone should check out All Elite Wrestling's Double or Nothing
May 25 is just over 3 weeks away, and after All Elite Wrestling was announced on January 1, it's exciting to know that their first show is finally here.
Coming to us from the world famous MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Tony Khan's new wrestling company is promising a very exciting show, and with Omega vs. Jericho, Bucks vs. Lucha Bros and so many other great matches lined up for the show, most wrestling fans are quite excited.
Unfortunately, not everyone feels the same excitement, and even if you aren't a fan of the people around the promotion, an alternative wrestling brand is something that the industry definitely needs, so we should all give it a chance.
Whether you're a fan of AEW already, you're intrigued about the show, or whether you're skeptical about this brand new company, the following are 6 reasons why you need to at least give Double or Nothing a chance.
#6 The first realistic alternative we've had in decades
Despite the fact that they don't want to be compared to WCW (and shouldn't be), it's hard to deny that AEW is already the best alternative we've had to the WWE since the final days of WCW back in the early 2000s.

Double or Nothing likely won't be able to bring back a lot of casual viewers, but with a great show here, their TV show will have a lot more hype behind it and will solidify them as a true alternative. The 2000s
They've expressed that they don't want to compete with WWE, and hat they're just trying to be an alternative product, and fans tuning into this show will give that push a big head start.
