Last night All Elite Wrestling put on their first official show, Double or Nothing. Many current WWE stars with their friends appearing on the show took to social media to wish those involved the best of luck or to sing the new promotion’s praises for what was a fantastic event.
For example, New Day star Big E jokingly wished everyone at [REDACTED] the best of luck before the show last night. Big E was not alone, as wantaway WWE star Sasha Banks also took to Twitter during the event to comment on her love and excitement for women’s wrestling.
I hope everyone enjoys [REDACTED] today. I genuinely wish the best for all involved in [REDACTED]!

On the Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer commented on the possibility of WWE management being unhappy with some of their top stars tweeting about a rival promotion after just this past week Stephanie McMahon held a meeting with talent where she referenced All Elite Wrestling as competition.
Meltzer also discussed the possibility of WWE punishing Renee Young and Natalya after Renee’s husband Jon Moxley (Dean Ambrose) and Natalya’s uncle Bret Hart both appeared on the show:
“What are they gonna do? They can’t say anything. They can’t touch Renee Young. If they do anything to Natalya, I know it’s possible, but if they do anything to Natalya people will react bad because it’s not like it’s The Revival who it’s actually them and people get that they’re trying to get [out]… Natalya didn’t do anything.”
“So if they try to get back at her because of what Bret did I just think that’s gonna… I’m not saying they won’t do it, but I’m thinking they may… I’m sure there’s a part of them that will and then I don’t want to make predictions, but if they are thinking and not reacting they would think ‘If we do this it would only make it worse because everyone’s gonna see through it and we’re gonna look like the bad guys.”
When speaking about the members of the WWE roster that actually tweeted about the show while it was live, Meltzer said that the McMahon family could likely be furious with them:
“It’s not like Natalya did anything and she didn’t tweet it’s not like one of those people who tweeted. The only thing I can say is that everyone in the McMahon family has to be ungodly furious at all those people who were tweeting because it wasn’t just like Sasha Banks because when she did it it was like, ‘Okay I get this.’ You know or Karl Anderson, Peyton Royce has got to, you know. I wasn’t so overt with Peyton Royce, but it can’t be looked upon well. Matt Hardy, to a degree (he can get away with it) but, they can’t be happy with their own talent tweeting about the rival show and putting it over.”
