WELCOME back to column time with Larry! Today, I'm going to discuss and preview the AEW Double or Nothing event, which is the sequel to last year's All In event and the first official AEW show. It is an interesting moment as we are witnessing another debut in a new company and we are trying to make an impact with an important lender. Can this company be successful and be what many fans are looking for in a company to follow and support? We'll find out soon. So today, I will shoot down and show the preview of the show; Thanks for reading! He is struggling, we love him and we will not be in agreement. The only rules are "get some, be respectful and don't be a jerk".
Sammy Guevara against Kip Sabian: This is a fun game on paper and a nice pre-show game to bring the crowd in and prepare the ground for the rest of the show. Sammy Guevara was signed to AEW, highlighted on Being the Elite and is a young and incredibly entertaining high level. Kip Sabian is a guy I saw sporadically, but he did a great job at last year's ROH UK shows. I think he will be a funny opponent against Sammy, and this should be a really fun sprint to kick start. WINNER: Sammy Guevara
Casino Battle Royal: Shawn Spears vs. Sonny Kiss vs. Brandon Cutler vs. Ace Romero vs. Glacier vs. Brian Pillman Jr. vs. Sunny Daze vs. MJF vs. Joey Janela vs. Dustin Thomas vs. Billy Gunn vs. Jimmy Havoc vs. Michael Nakazawa vs. Jungle Boy vs. Isiah Kassidy vs. Marq Quen vs. Luchasaurus . The Battle Royal Casino is the new name and replacement for the real battle over the budget. Just like Aztec Warfare or Gauntlet for the Gold, it's the latest new version of a Royal Rumble style match, which I like, how I like the Rumble and the variants I mentioned. I'm not completely sold on how it will work; I really have to see it in action, but I'm more than willing to give it a chance and I really hope it's a success. The winner here will receive a possible header, which should block us in some of the bigger names like Havoc, MJF, Janela, and maybe even Darby Allin if he's in the game. Or that or a surprise or Page enters the game to win the title shot since he lost his game with PAC on the show. WINNER: Joey Janela
Kylie Rae against Nyla Rose against Dr. Britt Baker: The women of AEW will also be protagonists of the show, and it is a division that has many hopes and many talents destined for the division. Kenny Omega is the one who is said to be responsible for the division, and his goal is to ensure that he must see / be as revolutionary as WCW's cruisers, which is an objective that I can appreciate. I think this is a good PPV game to start with, Kylie Rae has gathered a lot of enthusiasm in the last year, while AEW is very high with Dr. Britt Baker, and we were sure to stop her before WWE, ROH or the impact could. I think Rae or Baker take this, and I go with the good doctor here. WINNER: Dr. Britt Baker
SCU against CIMA, Lindaman and THawk: CIMA is a legend of Dragon Gate who left the company and started working at OWE, where he is training a new generation of Chinese children. AWE and OWE have agreed to cooperate, which offers the OWE children another job and an opportunity to exhibit, and gives access to AEW to talents that others will not have access to. Lindaman & THawk are fantastic and it's really nice to see them together at CIMA. SCU is the eternal team of veterans who always offers and will be the right kids to work with international talent to integrate them into the culture and style of the United States in which they will work. I think this has a lot of potential and I can't wait to do it. WINNER: CIMA, Lindaman and THawk
Aja Kong, Yuka Sakazaki and Emi Sakura against Hikaru Shida, Riho Abe and Ryo Mizunami: As mentioned earlier, Kenny Omega is the one who is said to be in charge of the division, and his goal is to make him see / revolutionary as the WCW cruiser weights and is digging deep and bringing a troop of Japanese women to show here. Probably this will look like one of those high-level WCW Cruiser tags with the big stars involved. Riho has signed an agreement with 5 shows to work with All Elite Wrestling and wants to see how she likes working in the United States before engaging in a longer deal with the company. I think that with them trying to block it, that his team will win the victory. WINNER: Hikaru Shida, Riho Abe and Ryo Mizunami
The best friends against Jack Evans and Angelico: with the purchases of Jack Evans and Angelico, the Best Friends were extracted from the Casino Battle Royal and received an extremely interesting and very high level competition. With the Bucks, Lucha Bros, Best Friends, and now Jack Evans and Angelico AEW are laying the groundwork for a great tag team division and as a fan of tag team wrestling I like it. This has the potential to be a great game, as the best friends are a great team of traditional tags, while Evans and Angelico can and will most likely bring the madman. It is difficult to choose a winner here, as you can't go wrong with either team, but with the best friends who have to fight just to get into the main card (in the plot) a loss here and a potential heel spin to continue the program might work well WINNER: Jack Evans and Angelico
Adam Page vs. PAC: I hate that we lost this game. Jeremy Lambert and I discussed this a lot about the podcast (the AEW talk starts at 44:00).
Cody against Dustin Rhodes: And here we come to the battle of the brothers, a game that they really wanted for so long because they weren't happy with the impetuous and lackluster game they had in WWE. Cody obviously found success outside of the WWE, and Dustin seems to do the same late in his career and tries to do it without Goldust's stunt. This has always been a problem for him, as his biggest success came as Goldust. But Dustin is a smart worker, and he can make bad publicity, so I have hope for that. He is 50 years old and is undergoing double knee surgery, but he is in good shape and I expect him and Cody to work at an old school style game that plays at both strengths with Cody wearing some occasional flashes. Together with the brothers who try to prove a point, the brothers have the advantage of working in front of a crowd that wants to see it and will probably be heavily invested, creating a fantastic atmosphere. Some will say that the match required a longer build and that it will happen later, but with 50-year-old Dustin who has finished his double knee surgery, I think it's time. They can also use this as a starting point for a longer feud and also a potential partnership across the board. I think they're building a meeting between Cody and Jericho at the next Chicago show, and with that, I think Cody wins here. WINNER: Cody
AAA Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks against the Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix: These four are extremely talented and are two of the best tag teams in all wrestling, so I have no hesitation in putting the certified banger warning on this. Without the advantage of TV, they did a good job of building this game on Being the Elite with videos of various independent and AAA events. The Bucks have had time to rest and heal, and they will be trying to impress AEW's first big show. Lucha Bros always deliver, and this will be one of the biggest shows they work on. With reports that will soon be exclusive to AEW in the United States, I think this is the first of a potential series of games and that the Bucks keep here and then let them fall into AAA. WINNER: The Young Bucks
Chris Jericho against Kenny Omega: The winner of this will face the winner of the Royal Casino for the inaugural championship of the AEW. These two have faced each other previously at WrestleKingdom and have had an excellent game, and now they have the advantage of that game to play, so I don't hesitate to put the certified banger alert on this match. If they manage to recreate some of the magic of that first game, then a surprise awaits us. Omega is fantastic and will be well rested, and Jericho has elegantly reinvented himself, knowing that he cannot work a traditional Omega-style game, and he will also be well rested in this game. With Omega winning their first fight and Jericho facing Okada at the Dominion, I see Jericho tying the series to 1-1, setting the stage for a rubber match along the line. WINNER: Chris Jericho
– End of scene.
