AEW Brings Pro-Wrestling Back to the MGM Grand Garden Arena

posted May 12, 2019, 5:53 PM by Wrestling Scout
Pro-wrestling has been running in Las Vegas for many years, but AEW bringing its "Double or Nothing" show back to the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  The arena, which has a capacity of just under 17,000, was a regular stop for WCW for four years when Zane Bresloff was one of their main promoters.  The WWF/WWE has always favored the Thomas & Mack Center.  Although WCW's Halloween Havoc shows are the best remembered shows at the MGM Grand, they ran numerous Nitro events there over the years.
