The rally will be for more details on their next ALL IN event titled ‘Double Or Nothing’. The same night WWE will be at the Jacksonville Memorial Arena for Smackdown Live. It’s expected that the ‘Double Or Nothing’ event will take place sometime in the Spring.

The promotion reportedly has several talents signed, including Cody Rhodes. According to Dave Meltzer, The Young Bucks have yet to sign an official deal, but are expected to sign soon. The signing of The Young Bucks seems to be a formality, due their contracts with Ring Of Honor just expiring, and the group being in Japan for Wrestle Kingdom 13.

Meltzer also states that there is several television outlets interested in the promotion, and they are confident a deal will be made.

The backing of Jacksonville Jaguars co-owner Tony Khan allows the company the negotiate deals with several top stars, including ones who participated at the first ALL IN according to Mike Johnson at PWInsider.
