Posted By James Walsh on 02/07/19


* Alex Marvez, Conrad Thompson and Excalibur hosted a pre-show and talked about OWE’s involvement, asking how they may factor into the Double or Nothing show. MJF appeared to run down Thompson in a promo that put himself over.

* The press conference began with Marvez and Thompson welcoming everyone from their spot at a podium near the MGM Grand Pool. Marvez saids that he’s looking forward to Excalibur “carrying” him for a long time to come.

* Northeast indy talent SOnny Kiss came out to toss some T-shirts, making his debut. He cut a promo saying that he hears AEW is for everyone and so is he. He said he will be at Double of Northing and while we may see him shaking his ass out there at the show, he’ll be kicking ass too and you can seal that with a kiss. Marvez says that Brandi specifically went after Kiss to bring him into AEW.

* Cody comes out to the stage, and the fans give him a “Thank You Cody” chant. Cody thanks the fans in attendance and says while it’s a little cold, it both seems and smells like a revolution. An “AEW” chant is breaking out. Cody says that they talked about their partnership with OWE last month, and this month he’s excited that they have a second partnership with AAA. This got a nice crowd pop. He said that their goal is to have the sports-centric wrestling in the world.

* Cody responds to a “We want tickets” chant by saying there’s a pre-sale sign-up at AllEliteWrestling.com. He says that they have learned lessons from All In and want to make sure that the best fans get the best tickets. The general public ticket sale starts on February 13th and going to the website now will guarantee that you can get tickets.

* Cody then introduced Sammy Guevara, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion. Guevara came out to the stage and pumped up the crowd before introducing himself. He said that perhaps some fans are familiar with him, maybe others aren’t. Guevara promoted his YouTube channel and said that soon everyone in AEW will learn that he’s the best ever. He mentioned his AAA Cruiserweight Championship reign and said it means he’s one of the best damned wrestlers in the world. Whoever else management brings out, he is their true superstar and everyone should get their tickets to see him steal the show, as he does best.

* Adam Page came out next and said that he jumped the gun at the first rally, noting that he was going to show up in full gear but was told he doesn’t have the body for it. He makes more jokes about his condition and says that while he talked about wanting to be the first-ever AEW Championship last time, a slimy punk (PAC) interrupted him. Page said PAC won’t be interrupting him tonight and it’s his stage. That is of course when a video message from PAC appears via satellite, and PAC says Page is just not on his level. PAC notes that he’s a horrible, devious bastard who was pigeon-holed and kept away from audiences for too long. He says it wasn’t anything personal with Page, he simply dislikes elitists. PAC says he’s coming for Page at Double or Nothing on May 25th and said Page should bring his cowboy boots because he’ll be riding into the sunset and won’t ever be seen again.

* Paige said he will bring his boots and when he’s done with PAC, there won’t be a doctor that can pull them out of PAC’s ass. The match between PAC and Page for Double or Nothing is official.

* Marvez and Thompson introduce the Young Bucks, who come out and talk about how they made a pact to become one of the best tag teams in the world way back in the 1990s when they went to WCW. They said that tag team wrestling feels like a lost art and that you can’t see it on wrestling shows, but that will change. Their main objective is to give fans the best tag division in the world and introduce a new AEW team in The Best Friends, Beretta and Chuck Taylor.

* The Best Friends cut promos about coming to AEW in order to find tag team competition, saying that they’ve been looking for the best tag division on Earth and made the right call in coming to AEW. They get a Best Friends chant and then hug before leaving.

SCU stayed here for the next announcement, which was more on Excalibur’s partnership with OWE. A quick video airs promoting OWE and saw them introduce Vice President Michael Nee, CEO Dragon Fu and Cima. They hype what OWE will bring to AEW. Daniels praises Cima and challenges him to find two partners for a six-man match at Double Or Nothing. Cima agrees and they celebrate together.

He said that in 2016, he and the Bucks set out to change the world of wrestling by calling themselves the Elitem and it’s started again in Las Vegas. He says that he fouund the meaning of what he meant when he says “change the world” at All In, and that he wondered why it couldn’t be the way all the time.

* Chris Jericho’s music then hit and he made his way out to the podium to face off with Omega. The crowd chanted “holy s**t” and they got into a scuffle until Atlas Security, BJ Whitmer and Cody broke it up. Jericho vs. Omega looks set for Double or Nothing.
