The fans inside Daly’s Place sang along to Judas as the Inner Circle rappelled from the TIAA Bank Field scoreboard. They engaged in a brilliant and entertaining battle with the Pinnacle, who brought their A-game tonight.

MJF, Wardlow, Shawn Spears and FTR looked set to beat Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz, since they won inside Blood and Guts. However, things couldn’t have gone differently at Double or Nothing. With the future of the group at stake, the Inner Circle literally fought for their lives.

Jericho and MJF brawled into the Jacksonville Jaguar’s offices, bumping into team coach Urban Meyer. They tortured each other, driving each other into walls, throwing them through glass and even powerbombing them through a crate.

Wardlow and Hager picked up their rivalry with a hoss fight. The tag teams of the respective factions had a brawl in a disco which saw Konnan [ex-manager of LAX] play the role of a DJ. In the end, Spears and Guevara fought their way back into the ring, where Guevara ate a chair shot to the head but survived.

After dropping him with the GTH, Guevara hit the 630 splash and secured his teammates’ future in AEW.

AEW Double or Nothing became the first show during the pandemic to host a PPV with a full capacity. With lockdown rules from the CDC softened, having fans inside Daly’s Place was the perfect way to kick off this new era and leave behind the old one.

The sound and sight of fans singing Chris Jericho‘s entrance theme was absolutely glorious. Listening to the crowd made it clear that Jericho is easily one of the most influential wrestlers of all time. The sound of thousands of fans singing Judas by Fozzy is a sound we all missed dearly.

We can’t underestimate the value of having fans in seats. AEW might just give gotten a head-start in this rat race.
