AEW Double or Nothing is set to take over Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on May 28th. They have a packed card for fans, but there is also a lot going on in the pro wrestling world on that day.
Click here for our complete coverage of the AEW Double or Nothing conference call.
AEW Double or Nothing and NXT Battleground are both running on the same night in direct competition with each other. This has created a problem for some fans who have to choose, or set up two screens on Sunday night.
During the media conference before Double or Nothing, Tony Khan had a lot to say. Tony Khan was asked about the NXT Battleground scheduling conflict. It turns out that TK doesn’t mind the competition, as long as it’s ethical.
When questioned about NXT going head-to-head with Double or Nothing, Tony Khan stated that he doesn’t mind competition as long as it is ethical. He expressed his belief that some past moves made by others in the industry have been unethical.
For the record, Shawn Michaels also commented on this. He expressed doubt that this kind of thing will happen again.
We will have to see if AEW Double or Nothing’s buy rate is lower this time around, and whether they blame NXT Battleground’s competition for that number. Only time will tell which event is received better by fans, but history should tell us that AEW’s pay-per-view will stretch far later into the night.
