Some big news is coming out of the All Elite Wrestling: Double or Nothing rally today, as is to be expected. One of which is the announcement of the signing of a former WWE Superstar as the company’s newest producer.
A special rally was held today close the same venue as tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live, as the press conference was held today at the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. Among the many announcements made, one of the major stories includes the signing of one of WWE’s former Superstars, who is a former WWE multi-time Tag Team Champion, Intercontinental Champion, King of the Ring winner and is a part of one of the greatest wrestling factions of all-time.
All Elite Wrestling has officially announced the signing of former WWE Superstar and one half of the “New Age Outlaws”, the one and only, Billy Gunn. Gunn will act as one of the producers for the company and will prove to be a huge asset for the organization with his vast knowledge and wrestling experience.

As you can see in the video/tweet above, Billy is the lone producer for AEW at this time. The deal was made official, as Billy seems to be very excited to be apart of the organization. We also see Billy’s son, Austin Gunn, who could very well be signing with AEW sooner rather than later.
AEW’s Double or Nothing event will take place on May 28th, 2019 at the MGM Grand from Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be AEW’s first official event and will the successor to “All-In”.
