Cody Rhodes & The Young Bucks are promising we’ll learn about new talent coming to All Elite Wrestling, new partnerships Tony Khan’s promotion will have and, oh yeah, when you’ll be able to get tickets to their first pay-per-view (PPV), May 25’s Double Or Nothing.
It’s a Super Tix Party!
The event goes down at The Splash Pool at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (which is also the venue for Double Or Nothing) at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific on Thurs., Feb. 7.
Watch along with the Cageside community via the above live stream from BTE, and find out what surprises the All Elite team have in store for us. And discuss them with your fellow Cagesiders in the comments below!
– Conrad Thompson, Alex Marvez and Excalibur hosted a pre-show on the stream, and talked up the partnership with China’s OWE.
– MJF showed up to put himself over and continue making fat jokes about Conrad like he did at the first press conference.
– Conrad and Alex are back to emcee, and they quickly introduce their first new roster member… Sonny Kiss (who wrestled in Lucha Underground as XO Lishus). We’re told Brandi Rhodes signed him. They welcome Cody to the stage.
– Cody (re)announces the AAA partnership. He announces ticket info for Double Or Nothing (Presale sign up is NOW through Feb 11th through allelitewrestling.com; general public sale will be Feb 13th), and welcomes AAA Cruiserweight champ Sammy Guevara. Guevara cuts a standard promo about being the best in the world.
– Hangman Page is here. He jokes about not being in full gear because he’s not in shape yet. Then he starts to cut a promo on the “slimy haired bastard” who interrupted him last time, but PAC isn’t here this time… then PAC shows up on the video screen for a fire promo that sets up a match between them for Double Or Nothing. Page responds, saying he’s sorry PAC couldn’t be here, but he’s doing what he does best – sitting at home. He makes their match official for May 25.
