Tony Khan appeared on Sirius’s Busted Open Radio this morning and made the announcement that AEW’s upcoming pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing, will take place on Sunday, May 30, 2021 from Daly’s Place in Jacksonville and that the show will feature fans at a 100% capacity. This will be the first major professional wrestling event to do this since March of 2020.
You can see the announcement below, in which Khan says “I expect to be at full capacity, outdoors, for Double or Nothing based on what a lot of other sports have done.”:
