It has been reported this month that WWE are interested in former Impact Champion Eli Drake after the former NXT star was released from his Impact contract last month. However, he is teasing appearing at a different promotion’s show this weekend.
Drake took to his Twitter account last night and shared a video of him driving past various hotels along the Las Vegas strip. AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view is taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada tonight, and Drake clearly knew he would create a buzz by confirming he is in the area.

AEW’s current stars have teased a few surprises will be in store for fans tonight, and with only 17 of the 21 entrants into the Casino Battle Royale already revealed, Drake could plausibly one of the big unannounced entrants into the pre-show bout.
