It’s finally here! AEW’s marquee pay-per-view - Double or Nothing - airs on May 30 and it’s available for purchase on Sling TV right now! We know what you’re thinking, how many poker clichés will there be in this blog? Well, keep count for us while we highlight our top three reasons why you have to buy this pay-per-view, and hypothesize some predictions.
Reason 1: Sting Live In-Action
Darby Allin and his dad are teaming up to face Scorpio Sky & Ethan Page in Sting’s first live match since joining AEW. We were all little stingers in the '90s, and the nostalgia is hitting us hard for this one. That makes this matchup tough to call because Sting should be putting over younger talent at this point in his career, but we’d love to see a tap-out victory to the Scorpion Death Lock
Prediction: Split Pot. Not an actual tie, we just can’t make a call.
Reason 2: Freshly Squeezed Champion?
The slothiest man in wrestling gets his first opportunity at the biggest prize in all of wrestling when Orange Cassidy goes up against Kenny Omega & Pac in a triple threat match for World Title. All three of these guys are incredible performers, and this will surely be an instant classic. Despite the quality of the match, it’s not the right time to crown the citrus warrior.
Prediction: Ace in the Hole. Kenny Omega Retains with a One-Winged Angel on Cassidy.
Reason 3: The Doctor is in!
Dr. Britt Baker faces Hikaru Shida for the Women’s World Championship, and we think this is the perfect time for her to become the face of the division. Opportunities like this are hard to come by in wrestling, as her face-to-heel character arc over the last year has been absolutely stellar. Shida has been a phenomenal champion, but the timing is just so perfect to make the switch.
Prediction: Royal Flush. Shida taps out to the Lockjaw.
That does it for the AEW: Double or Nothing blog. There’s a lot more action scheduled for this show, we just can’t blog about it all day unless our bets start hitting. What’s our cliché counter at by the way? Enjoy the show!
