ITV today announced a partnership with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) to broadcast the highly anticipated ‘Double or Nothing’ event on its ITV Box Office channel.
AEW – the new wrestling promotion headlined by members of The Elite – will stage ‘Double or Nothing’ from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on the night of Saturday 25 May going into Sunday 26 May.
The event, which sold out in under 30 minutes, features an electrifying card packed with stars including the headline clash between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho.
The wrestling world will rock as Cody takes on his brother Dustin Rhodes, The Young Bucks battle the Lucha Bros for the AAA World Tag Team Championship, Hangman Adam Page clashes with PAC, and Dr Britt Baker, Nyla Rose and Kylie Rae compete in a three-way match.
Additionally, before the live pay-per-view event begins at 1am GMT, Sunday, May 26, the hour-long live pre-show special “BUY-IN” will air for free on ITV4 at midnight.
“BUY-IN” includes the first ever “Casino (Battle) Royale,” which will see 21 competitors including MJF, Michael Nakzawa, Jungle Boy, Glacier, Sonny Kiss, and Joey Janela entering the ring in waves of five wrestlers every three minutes followed by one final entrant, lucky number 21, all fighting it out in the ring until there is one winner, whose reward will be a future title shot against the first ever AEW World Champion.
“BUY-IN” will also feature a pair of high-flyers squaring off one-on-one as the UK’s own Kip Sabian will face Sammy Guevara.
ITV Box Office is available on Sky, Virgin Media, PS4 and TV Player. Details on how to order can be found at itvboxoffice.com. Priced at £14.95 (€17.95)
