A few minutes ago we reported that the Royal Farms Arena, original headquarters of Money in the Bank 2020 scheduled for May 10, Officially announced that they will no longer hold such an event in their locality. Without giving a specific reason, it is not very difficult to assume that the restriction measures taken to minimize the effects of the coronavirus are related to such a decision.
► AEW Double or Nothing 2020 would not take place in Las Vegas
Like WWE, AEW continues with its weekly episodes, after they used the gym QT Marshall in Norcross (Georgia) to record enough content for the coming weeks. however, if the situation doesn't change from here until (we assume) mid or late May, We may not see AEW Dynamite for a while.
Now, in relation to the next PPV of the company, a few weeks ago we announced that the MGM Grand, headquarters of AEW Double or Nothing 2020, had closed its doors indefinitely due to the wave of the coronavirus, whose situation does not seem to improve worldwide.
Yes so far the MGM Grand still selling tickets for AEW Double or Nothing 2020, scheduled for next May 23, like AEW Dynamite, which will take place four days later, the situation is not encouraging at all and it will be a matter of days until the cancellation is announced.
Las Vegas Locally, a Twitter account that keeps up with all the local Las Vegas events, would have shared bad news, by stating that all MGM Resorts will be closed until May 31, which will affect both AEW shows.
All MGM Resorts shows and attractions have been canceled through May 31st as of today, per source.

"All shows and attractions at MGM Resorts have been canceled until May 31, according to a source. "
In accordance with the aforementioned publication, the recent Wrestling Observer newsletter indicates activities at the event venue would resume from June 1, in the best scenario:
"The next big event, Double or Nothing on May 23, remains in the air. There are three options, all obvious, based on what will be allowed in Las Vegas. The show is slated at the MGM Grand and had nearly XNUMX tickets to sell, but it's doubtful that it has changed in the past few weeks.
If fans are allowed in, which at the moment seems highly unlikely, it will be a regular show. If fans aren't allowed, they could put on a show at an empty arena in Las Vegas or a show at an empty arena at another location. They may also be able to move the PPV date.
The MGM Grand has canceled all events in May except AEW, although MGM Resorts has said that all events are canceled until June 1, which in theory would include AEW. To date, the MGM Grand website was still selling tickets to both shows. "
So far, the only fixed fight for AEW Double or Nothing would be the final of the tournament to define the first TNT Champion, of which it is speculated that it would be a fight between Cody y Lance archer.
