All Elite Wrestling had their huge rally in Jacksonville, Florida today and they made the official announcement of their second major event — All Elite Wrestling Double or Nothing.

That was also not the only announcement, but there was a lot of news announced at the outdoor event.

All Elite Wrestling Double or Nothing

The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes made two big announcements right off the bat.

The biggest was the announcement of Double or Nothing — which is the followup to the 2018 event All In. While All In took place in Chicago, Double or Nothing will take place in Las Vegas.

All Elite Wrestling will hold Double of Nothing at the MGM Plaza in Las Vegas on May 25.

A shocking announcement was also made on Twitter when Cody Rhodes introduced one of their first producers — Billy Gunn. This is surprising since Gunn is a close friend of Triple H and a former member of DX.

Another announcement was that All Elite Wrestling would be bringing in Chinese talents from OWE, who the Young Bucks described as a mix between Cirque du Soleil, Luchadores and cruiserweights.

All Elite Women’s Wrestling

Brandi Rhodes then came out and announced that there will be a women’s division in All Elite Wrestling as well.

Brandi then introduced the first signing to the women’s division — Britt Baker. She was also one of the very first people signed to All Elite Wrestling period.

Britt Baker than said that she will be part of Double or Nothing.

Other All Elite Wrestling signings

MJF showed up as well, interrupting Conrad Thompson. He got a perfect reception, as fans chanted “a**hole” at him.

MJF then made sure to insult Jacksonville, getting his heat. He then said that he was invited and that he is the only reason they can call All Elite “elite” and start a revolution.

The next person to show up was the Jaguars mascot and Joey Janela showed up and laid out MJF. He had Penelope Ford with him and said that they are signed with All Elite as well.

Hangman Adam Page came out next as the next member of the Elite to sign on with All Elite Wrestling. He said this was his first day on the job and it was his favorite first day on any job he had.

Page then pointed out how he doesn’t have someone telling him what to say or how to act because the fans are his new boss now.

He mentions his goal of being the first ever All Elite Wrestling champion, which brought out NEVILLE (known again as PAC)!

It is official, as today’s rumors were true. PAC has signed on to join All Elite Wrestling! He even brought his title with him and said Page can’t even lace his boots.

Looks like Adam Page vs. PAC for All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing.

Chris Jericho was the final All Elite Wrestling annoucement

They had a second announcement that their second show will be in Jacksonville, Florida. They will donate most of the gate from that show to victims of gun violence.

There was no date announced for this show, though.

Then, Chris Jericho’s Fozzy theme song started and Jericho came out. This is a MASSIVE shock, as Jericho said that he wouldn’t work with anyone other than the WWE in America.

“I am Chris Jericho, and I am all in with All Elite Wrestling,” Jericho said. “Surprise.”

Jericho said that he was not there for the money but he was there to do something different and new. He will be at Double or Nothing.

“It starts now and it starts forever,” Jericho said. “We are going to change the whole universe.”

Christopher Daniels and Scorpio Sky were also there to announce that SCU would be at the meet-and-greet after the All Elite Wrestling rally.
