Report: AEW Scraps Planned Double Or Nothing Match

A planned match won't be taking place at AEW Double or Nothing

All Elite Wrestling have pulled a planned match from Double or Nothing. 

Reports in April revealed that Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland were scheduled to finally face off in singles action at the May 28 pay-per-view in Las Vegas, but the match was never made official and both men were involved in the show-closing brawl between entrants in the Blackjack Battle Royale on Wednesday night's Rampage taping. The episode will air at midnight ET on Saturday, May 27. 

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Lee and Strickland will be participants in the Battle Royale for the AEW International Championship, meaning their planned singles match is off the pay-per-view. Why AEW decided not to book Lee vs. Strickland for the show is unknown but Meltzer speculated AEW could be saving the match for All In on August 27. 

Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee were initially a tag team in AEW but they split in December 2022. They have been feuding since then but have only met in the squared circle once when Keith Lee and Dustin Rhodes defeated Strickland and Parker Boudreaux on a March episode of Rampage.
