ALL ELITE WRESTLING TO OFFICIALLY LAUNCH WITH RALLY TODAY IN JACKSONVILLE

By Mike Johnson on 2019-01-08 08:52:00

The newly formed All Elite Wrestling will provide the first details on the company today, holding a 5 PM Eastern at TIAA Field, the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, to reveal information on the promotion and their "Double or Nothing" event.  The Young Bucks, Cody, Brandi Rhodes, Adam "Hangman" Page, Scorpio Sky, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian have all been announced as appearing and it stands to reason others may be revealed as well.

WWE has a Smackdown taping scheduled at the nearby Jacksonville Memorial Arena tonight at 7:30 PM (literally a five minute walk from one venue to the other), which means that fans arriving at the WWE taping will have to travel past the Stadium to attend Smackdown.

The official press release issued last week on the event notes:

THE ELITE ANNOUNCES “DOUBLE OR NOTHING” EVENT RALLY IN JACKSONVILLE ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 8 @ 5PM

 -- New “All Elite Wrestling” Poised to Change Wrestling Landscape --

JACKSONVILLE, FL, (January 3, 2019) – All Elite Wrestling, the new wrestling promotion headlined by members of The Elite, today announced plans for a special DOUBLE OR NOTHING event rally in Jacksonville, FL.  The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 5pm ET outside TIAA Bank Field in Parking Lot J (near Gate 1, adjacent to the TV compound).

The rally is on the heels of the unveiling earlier this week of DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the inaugural event under the new All Elite Wrestling (AEW) banner.  Keeping in true The Elite fashion, attendees can expect the unexpected as the rally will showcase the true spirit of wrestling entrepreneurialism and feature special guests, inside info and limited edition merchandise.

Fans can also watch the event rally live on the “Being The Elite” YouTube channel, as well as @AEWrestling (Twitter), /TheYoungBucks (Facebook), @TheBrandiRhodes (Instagram), and can interact socially at #AEW.

“The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, are right with me in committing to deliver on our promise to change the wrestling landscape in 2019, and the DOUBLE OR NOTHING event is just the start,” said Cody Rhodes.  “The time to change the world is now.”
