The ‘Belt Collector‘ will put his AEW World Championship on the line against both PAC and Orange Cassidy in a three-way at Double or Nothing. But why a three-way? Well, Orange Cassidy and PAC were supposed to have a one on one match this week with the winner challenging Omega.

However, referee Aubrey Edwards saw Omega sneak attack PAC and ruled the match a no-contest. Don Callis and Omega tried to weasle their way out of the match, but AEW President Tony Khan made it a three-way match between Omega, Cassidy and PAC!

The Inner Circle vs The Pinnacle – Stadium Stampede II

Staidum Stampede returns to the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars as The Inner Circle take on The Pinnacle. Following their loss at AEW Blood and Guts last week, the Inner Circle were hell bent on getting retribution on The Pinnacle as they believe they had them beat the previous week.

On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Pinnacle’s leader MJF laid down a challenge to Jericho. MJF challenged Jericho to a Stadium Stampede match between the two factions with an interesting stipulation. If the Inner Circle lose, they must disband!

Cody Rhodes vs Anthony Ogogo

Cody Rhodes will take on a new talent, Anthony Ogogo, at AEW Double or Nothing this year. But why?

Well, last week, Ogogo laid out Cody in the middle of the ring after his match with QT Marshall. Ogogo didn’t just lay out Cody. He added salt to his wounds by covering his body with a Union Jack!

This week, the ‘American Nightmare‘ cut a promo where he challenged Ogogo to the a match. Rhodes said he won’t be the ‘American Nightmare’ at Double or Nothing. He will be the ‘American Dream’ Cody Rhodes.

Dr. Britt Baker has climbed up the AEW rankings, and reached the #1 spot to earn this title match against the champion, Hikaru Shida.

Baker has been on a roll in the past few months. But her confidence in the ring, especially heading into this match, make us believe we might see a new AEW Women’s World Champion at Double or Nothing.

Just like the Stadium Stampede match, the Casino Battle Royal also makes its return to AEW Double or Nothing. Being a staple match of the PPV, so far, only two men have announced their entry into the match – Christian Cage and Matt Sydal.

There are still 19 open spots, but they’ll surely fill out in the weeks to come.

This is the stacked card of AEW Double or Nothing right now. A few more matches may get added to the card. We will keep you updated as the card shapes up.
