Yes, we know, it is yet another AEW story, but this one is at least based on cold hard facts rather than rumours and speculation!
Firstly, in an entirely expected piece of news following last week’s ticket party pull-apart, Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho in a Wrestle Kingdom 12 rematch has been confirmed for Double Or Nothing on May 25. In all likelihood it will headline the show, unless the promotion manages to pull off an unexpected major coup before then.
The other match official for Double Or Nothing is Hangman Page vs. PAC, with several others (The Young Bucks vs. The Luchas Bros, SCU vs. CIMA & two members of the OWE roster and the women’s matches) expected to be etched in stone over the coming weeks.
Ticket prices confirmed
Okay, so we already pretty much knew all of that. What we did not know was what the layout of the MGM Grand would look like for the event, nor what the ticket prices were going to be. Matt Jackson had promised that tickets would be “very affordable” when asked yesterday but that was the extent of the information
Tickets will be very affordable. We considered everything: flights/hotels being more costly because of the holiday weekend & the additional taxes on the tickets. I think you will all be pleased. https://t.co/ZtlGRj2jZa

We can now confirm that the ticket structure IS very affordable, with the prices (including tax and facility fee) starting at $36.20 and the most expensive ringside seats costing $211.10. There are several other prices in between as well.
By comparison, tickets for WWE’s upcoming pay-per-view Fastlane start at $25 (for the nosebleed seats) and go up to $500 for ringside, with all floor seats in the $100 and above range.
AEW has also released a seating chart, which shows specifically which seat you will be getting and how much it will cost for each. You can peruse it at your leisure by following the tweet below:

Like All In, it is expected that Double Or Nothing will sell out immediately due to the incredibly high demand for pre-sale codes the promotion’s website experienced over the weekend. In reality they probably could sell out the MGM grand several times over. However, as our exclusive report reveals, there will be plenty of other opportunities for fans to buy tickets to AEW events in the very near future.
What do you think of the pricing structure for Double Or Nothing? Are the prices fair? Perhaps they are too fair? Maybe they are too expensive? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
