The trio, Rhodes" wife Brandi and Adam "Hangman' Page were all branching out from Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling to form AEW, and soon after announced a special event to make some big announcements.

"I take full responsibility for the loss", Omega told Tokyo Sports. "There is no real place for me to fit, so it's best for me not to be in NJPW". I don't know how it's all gonna come down but it definitely went from the idea that they may work with All Elite at some point to now I think its got a very good shot of happening but there's still a lot of barriers and its a very complicated issue.

"I think, again, this is exceedingly educated speculation that things will change in this relationship".

"New Japan does not want to lose Kenny Omega, badly".

The first major announcement for the promotion was that "Double Or Nothing" the first major event for their brand, will be hosted at the iconic MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019.

Dave Meltzer spoke about Jericho's situation on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, where he confirmed that Y2J's contract did indeed expire on Friday, although NJPW want to keep working with him.

- During yesterday's All Elite Wrestling Double or Nothing launch rally, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan said that the second AEW event would be in Jacksonville, Florida, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit victims of gun violence in the area.
