AEW has stuck to the places where Tony Khan knows the company can draw since their return to touring during the pandemic. Plenty of shows have taken place in the usual locales of Chicago and AEW’s home base in Jacksonville. Rust Belt cities like Cleveland and Pittsburgh have seen their share of live AEW action as well as Texas and the north and southeastern states. Fans on the west coast have felt mostly left out.

AEW always planned to hold their signature Double or Nothing PPV in Las Vegas. The COVID-19 situation changed those plans. Khan says the show will be back in Sin City this Memorial Day weekend.

Khan also plans to bring live AEW shows to the west coast. Nothing has been announced yet. Tony said he’s excited about the idea in an interview with Karisa Maxwell of Sporting News.

“I would love to bring AEW out to the West Coast and I’m excited to say that we are coming back to the West Coast. So I think it could be very soon. This summer. AEW is slated to return to Las Vegas where it all began for us. The first AEW show was Double or Nothing in Las Vegas.


We’ll be back Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas again. So, I think fans can look forward to that — our next pay per view, of course, is Revolution in Orlando, and then we’ve got Double or Nothing’s the pay per view after that. It’s Memorial Day weekend. So it’s every quarter, we have a huge event but after Double or Nothing, I think we can look forward to maybe [having] AEW out here, who knows?”

The best AEW fans on the west coast can do for now is a trip to Vegas. Tony Khan is hoping to change that shortly. Fans in that area will be keeping their eyes peeled for any new announcements.
