All Elite Wrestling revealed today that their first official show, Double or Nothing, will be broadcast in the UK on ITV’s Box Office. This is huge for AEW, with ITV being the second largest television station in the UK. The statement released by AEW also confirmed the preshow entitled “BUY-IN” will start one hour before Double or Nothing, and will air for free on ITV 4.
