WWE Hall of Famer Edge and former WWE World Heavyweight Champion talked about All Elite Wrestling on a recent episode of the E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness podcast. This has been a hot topic since the promotion was launched earlier this month.
Whether you want to see it succeed or fail, the impact that is possible with the launch of AEW is significant on the state of pro wrestling. Edge and Christian brought up AEW’s next event and how they think it will do.
The Double or Nothing event is set to take place May 25th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. As of this writing, there are no details on the matches taking place or when tickets will go on sale. An official announcement regarding this event and the bouts to take place are expected to be announced in the near future.
“I think they will [sell it out],” Christian professed. “I mean, I think they proved they could do it with ALL IN. I think they’ve stumbled… not stumbled… worked hard for this and I think there’s definitely an interest.”
“The only reason I say that with a question mark is because ALL IN was in Chicago [Illinois], which is a [pro] wrestling stronghold,” Edge explained. “Yeah, [Las] Vegas is just a little bit different. That’s the only reason I question it. And it’s a bigger arena. I think they ran a 10,000 seater the last time. This is 17,000+. I hope they do. I really do. And the Jacksons and Cody, The [Young] Bucks and Cody, I love the fact that even if they didn’t have this vision from the beginning, they realized to shoot for the stars and give this a try. And then, they run into financial folks like we talked about that are willing to do this with the Khans. It’s exciting!”
