AEW Double Or Nothing is going back to Las Vegas on May 23rd. Unlike last year, there are still tickets available.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that Double Or Nothing didn’t sell out. The tickets did sell well, but they weren’t close to the previous year’s 15 minute sell out.
“It looks to be 8 or 9,000 tickets, but it wasn’t a first-day sell out.”
Bryan Alvarez was at the NXT TakeOver: Portland and he spoke to people about AEW Double Or Nothing. He was told that a lot of fans aren’t going because there isn’t going to be a Starrcast event. Dave Meltzer noted that Starrcast lost money the last time they were in Las Vegas.
“They’re not going to have Starrcast and everything because it was a money loser in Vegas last year.”
It was noted that fans don’t want to travel all the way to Las Vegas just for one show. There is nothing for fans to do other than Double Or Nothing unless they’re into gambling or other Vegas attractions.
Since there is no multi-day destination event then it took a lot of appeal out of the show. AEW could still arrange to do their own meet and greets, but they haven’t announced anything at this time.
