All Elite Wrestling Double or Nothing Rally Impressions (Small Package)

Posted by Anthony Mango Tuesday, January 8, 2019
All Elite Wrestling's Double or Nothing rally took place earlier, and they made plenty of promises about changing the world of professional wrestling and so on and so forth.

Rather than write some convoluted article trying to expand on my thoughts and drag things out, I figured I'd cut to the chase and hit you all with a Small Package of my basic impressions from the press conference:

  • Not seeing Kenny Omega was surprising, but it's not some confirmation that he's going to WWE instead. We'll see at Royal Rumble.
  • Chris Jericho's involvement is a 50/50 thing to me. Much of this discussion started with he and Jim Ross being part of it, so I'm not TOO shocked, but I'm also simultaneously surprised he made it a true deal that he's in the company and not just a bit-player or something.
  • Neville / Pac. Very interesting. Very interesting.
  • After the third time seeing the same pyro, I was over it. It's good to see some of it since WWE doesn't do that anymore, but the same setup, meh. (nitpicking, I know)
  • The sound was pretty bad. Something to take note of for the future. I certainly couldn't do a better job.
  • Interesting we didn't see Tony Khan.
  • Double or Nothing being on May 25th hopefully doesn't get messed up with any WWE events like Backlash or another Saudi Arabia event. I want to be able to actually watch it and do predictions and a review of it and such.
  • Penelope Ford had a tryout with WWE recently and I thought she had a shot at being signed to NXT. I'm not sure what I think about her being in AEW. Part of me likes that and part of me just wants everyone to be in WWE. The same for Britt Baker.
  • For that matter, I'm very curious what other women get signed in the future.
  • Conrad Thompson could have just been here for the hell of it, hosting the event as a favor or just to get his name out there some more or whatever, or we could see some announcement in the future that he's actually going to be a member of the broadcast team.
  • Still no confirmation of a television deal. Hm...

To be honest, I was underwhelmed. I'm still excited for the potential behind AEW, but I was hoping for something more grandiose, some bigger announcements, and something that made me go WOW at the end of it. That didn't happen. Here's hoping the next bit of info we get about the company is something cool and not a picture of ugly title belts or something.
