AEW Double or Nothing is one of All Elite Wrestling’s biggest annual events, but ticket sales for the 2023 edition have slowed considerably.
Each year, Double or Nothing marks the anniversary of the company’s first pay-per-view in May of 2019, taking place is Las Vegas before the fledgling promotion even signed a television deal. While the event moved to Jacksonville, FL in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they made their grand return to Vegas in 2022 and are set to hold the 2023 edition at the T-Mobile Arena on May 28th.
Tickets went on sale in mid-March, and an April 5th report from WrestleTix revealed that 6,585 tickets had been sold. In an update on May 7th, WrestleTix reported that 6,807 tickets had been sold, meaning that only 222 tickets were sold in the course of a month. The T-Mobile arena is currently planned to be set up for a capacity of 9,872.

MJF Will Defend His AEW World Championship In A Fatal Four Way Match At AEW Double Or Nothing
MJF became AEW World Champion when he defeated Jon Moxley at Full Gear. After a successful title defense against Bryan Danielson at Revolution, the star was confronted by Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, and Sammy Guevara on the April 19th episode of Dynamite.
This confrontation set in motion a Four Pillars Tournament to determine MJF’s next title contender. Darby Allin was granted a bye in the first round as Sammy Guevara squared off against Jungle Boy Jack Perry, and MJF helped Guevara secure the victory. MJF convinced Guevara to enter an alliance with him and helped him to victory once again against Allin, with the caveat that he would pay Guevara to lose to him at Double or Nothing.
However, AEW President Tony Khan didn’t approve of their plan, and declared that on the May 3rd episode of Dynamite, MJF and Guevara would team up to face Allin and Perry in tag team action. When Darby Allin and Jack Perry were victorious, they were added to the Double or Nothing main event, making it a fatal four way match.
