World Title Challenger, Five New Matches Official For AEW Double Or Nothing
The card is filling up quick
On a very busy episode of AEW Dynamite, five new matches were made official for Double or Nothing, while World champion Kenny Omega learned who he'll be defending his title against that night.
The top contenders match between Pac and Orange Cassidy ended in a double knockout, after Omega whacked Pac with the title belt after Cassidy was already laid motionless. Omega thought the result meant he had no opponent for the PPV, only to learn via a Tony Khan ruling that *both* Pac and Cassidy will face him on May 30, in a three way match.
Other matches were made official through the night. Cody Rhodes challenged Factory henchman Anthony Ogogo to a one-on-one match, following his attack on Rhodes last week. Adam Page challenged Brian Cage to a singles bout, a rematch from a couple weeks ago.
After Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston trashed The Elite's clubhouse, The Young Bucks formally challenged them to a Tag Team title match at the pay-per-view.
The Pinnacle's Blood and Guts celebration was disrupted by The Inner Circle, who marred the ceremony by spraying them with a "bubbly"-loaded contraption. This goaded MJF into accepting a rematch for Double or Nothing, with two caveats: that it be a Stadium Stampede match (which the Inner Circle lost last year), and that if The Inner Circle loses, they must disband forever.
Additionally, the third annual Casino Battle Royal was confirmed for the show, with Christian Cage and Matt Sydal announced as entrants. Previous matches were won by Adam Page and Lance Archer.
The current card for AEW Double or Nothing, taking place Sunday night, May 30, at Daily's Place in Jacksonville, is as follows:
* AEW World: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Pac vs. Orange Cassidy
* AEW Women's: Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Dr. Britt Baker, DMD
