Double Or Nothing is not just another AEW pay-per-view as Tony Khan hints at surprises for his company’s fifth-anniversary show.

It was way back on the 1st of January 2019 that the formation of AEW was announced at the same time The Elite revealed they were going Double Or Nothing. That turned out to be the name of AEW’s first-ever pay-per-view and five years on, Tony Khan is getting ready to take his promotion back to Las Vegas for another huge show.

Speaking on The Rocker Morning Show (WRKR 107.7), Tony Khan noted that it’s a great time for fans old and new of AEW and promised that Double Or Nothing would be a classic show and hinted at surprises for AEW’s fifth anniversary:

It’s a great time to be an AEW fan. It’s a great time to jump in. If you haven’t watched AEW and you haven’t watched in a while, there’s a lot of cool stuff happening right now.

Having every Wednesday night on TBS at 8 pm and having every Friday and Saturday on TNT, that’s pretty special. But this 5-year anniversary show is the biggest milestone we’ve ever hit and we’re gonna do it in a very special way. I’ve got a lot of really cool things planned and I promise it’s gonna be a classic show. You’re gonna love it this Sunday.
