AEW Double or Nothing Discussion

Recommended Posts

That promo by Cody has made me very hyped for his match against his brother Dustin. Hopefully the match can live up to the build-up as usually brother vs brother matches tend to be a bit underwhelming. Case and point the Jeff vs Matt match a couple of years ago at Wrestlemania.

Usually promos don't stand out to me, but this one definitely did. Cody Rhodes has a way with words and this one stood out, not because of what he said about Triple H or nothing like that, it felt real. It felt like he was speaking from the heart, and I don't know, maybe he was. The best promos are the ones that blur the line between reality and the fake, scripted stuff we're seeing. Amazing job by Cody, and hopefully Dustin has one last good match in him before his matches turn average.

Dustin is a good choice for an opponent and Dustin seems to be very happy that he is doing this so I am happy for him. After all his years of working in the business he deserves to do whatever he wants at this point. I hope him and Cody will be able to create a match that lives up to the rivalry, which kicked off in a great way with a very good promo by Cody.

AEW could really have something with this show, the match card, promos and BTE are all building hype towards the show. It'll be interesting to see if they bring in any surprises for the show, perhaps revealing the AEW Heavyweight championship or at least announcing its creation officially. 

Jericho VS Omega as the main event is definitely the best decision they could make since it is probably the most high profile match on the show. 

Cody VS Dustin will be an interesting, i have a feeling the match will be good but might be over shadowed in terms of technical ability or spots considering what else is on the show. 

Overall I'm looking forward this and I hope the show lives up to the hype.

I think they would have learned from what WWE did at Summerslam 2016 and not reveal the title at the show. Eventhough they have an audience that I am confident would love everything, I just woulnd't take the risk of a match being ruined by the fans spending their time voicing their opinion on the look of the championship.

The first details on the AEW World Championship were announced on the latest episode of “AEW – The Road to Double or Nothing.”

As announced by Cody Rhodes, the winner of the Casino Battle Royale will get the first shot at the newly crowned All Elite Wrestling World Champion. There is no word yet on how they will crown the new champion but, as seen in the video below, the title is ready so it looks like a new champion will be crowned in the very near future.

Also in this episode, tensions escalate between Rhodes and Chris Jericho, footage from Rhodes appearance at Southern Honor Wrestling from this past weekend, Brandi Rhodes brings in talent for a pool photoshoot and the latest name is announced for the Casino Battle Royale.

PAC vs. Page off Double or Nothing due to creative differences

Quote

Potential Spoilers




The angle at today's WrestleGate show in Nottingham, England involving PAC and Hangman Page was done largely to present the match that had been built up because the match won't be taking place at Double or Nothing on Saturday.

The official word from AEW is that there were creative differences regarding the match and PAC won't be on Saturday's show. With PAC's regular matches in the U.K., it's known that beacuse he takes his status as world champion with Dragon Gate seriously, he has not agreed to any losses since winning the Open the Dream Gate title and to protect that has done 30:00 draws with Zack Sabre Jr. and Will Ospreay. On the flip side, AEW wants to present a sports-like atmosphere and had their own direction for what they wanted.

The PAC vs. Page match will be released this week on the Internet by AEW with the idea that everyone can see the match, even if it had a DQ finish, for free, so fans are getting the hyped up match. Page agreed to fly to England and do the match to make up for the hyped match not happening on the PPV. Page will be wrestling against a new opponent, although the name probably won't be announced before the PPV show. The DQ finish kept things open ended enough that PAC may be back with the promotion at some point to face Page, although there is no definitive time frame.

There will be at least one more announcement made midweek regarding Saturday's show.

Disappointing to be honest, was looking forward to the match. This is can all be a work though as I've seen some people on twitter theorized that but its probably not.

Pretty horrible start leading into the event. PAC was one of the guys I was most excited to see in AEW as well. Him refusing the booking on their first official show doesn't really speak to a long term relationship lasting between them but i've seen people say that they might be rebooking matches for them both so we will see. On one hand i understand Dragon Gate wanting to protect their champion but it feels this must have been discussed multiple times leading into the event? Who looks incompetent here? It will be interesting to see what happens long term.

Shame we losing Page VS PAC seemed like a match with a lot of potential all though I didn't really like the comedy build up they had on BTE and the lack of build up on the road to double or nothing series was disappointing. I've heard people suggest that it might've been PAC having a Visa Issue but I feel like it just might be the creative differences that have been mentioned. I kinda understand where PAC is coming from but Page beating PAC is still weird anyway, you'd think PAC would be winning the match anyway and he seems like the more logical pick over Hangman but I guess if they really wanna have the elite guys go over I guess thats how its gonna be.

Already backstage problems with AEW it seems like. I understand where PAC is coming from wanting to keep his undefeated streak alive and I don't see why AEW couldn't just have made this match a draw. There isn't anything on the line its just an exhibition match. Losing PAC is a big setback, and it was one of the matches I was looking forward to seeing. Happy that they taped it over in England but would have rathered it happen at AEW's first big show

I think its quite obvious what happened.  They wanted to give there boy Page the win since there all boys. When obviously Pac should be winning and Pac knew that. To me thats not good and I was always worried about the biases that could come with the little backstage kliq they have. That's gonna be something people are always gonna try and look at when it comes to AEW and creatvie. How much special treatment are the boys getting

As noted earlier, former WWE Superstar Tye Dillinger (Shawn Spears) has been announced for All Elite Wrestling's 21-man Casino Battle Royale on "The Buy In" Double Or Nothing pre-show this Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Dillinger, who left WWE back in February after requesting his release, spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated and said he's coming to AEW because he believes in what they are doing.

"I'm coming to AEW because I believe in what they are doing," the 38 year old said. "I believe in providing an alternative for fans, and I really believe that the audience has wanted an alternative for quite some time. This is now the platform to give people exactly what they want, and I am really looking forward to proving myself in AEW."

Dillinger's 90-day non-compete clause from his WWE contract will expire less than 48 hours before Double Or Nothing. Dillinger said he has a very specific, driven direction for his career.

"My career has had its ups and downs, but I took the reins in the past few months," he said. "Now I plan on taking a very specific, driven direction. And what better time than this Saturday at Double or Nothing to prove that to the world?"

Dillinger, who will launch his Flatbacks wrestling school with WWE Superstar Tyler Breeze on July 1, is also eager to help develop new stars for AEW. He has been friends with AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes for years, and said he wasn't going to wait to be a part of the history-making promotion.

"I'm able to bring a great deal of experience to a company that is looking to build young talent, which is vital to the future of professional wrestling," he said. "I've known Cody [Rhodes] for a very long time, and in terms of this endeavor, there are no better four guys than Cody, the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega that I would trust to put this together. AEW is history-making. When the chance presented itself to be a part of something so groundbreaking, I wasn't going to wait around any longer."
 

I think this is a signing a lot of people felt was inevitable given his relationship with Cody but it was still a bit of a surprise to wake up to. Shawn (feels weird not to say Tye) isn't the most stand out competitor but he can still bring something to the early days of the company if he continues past this event. The video short announcing his entry was really cool, i continue to love the video production in All Elite Wrestling so far. Though i'm surprised they continued with the "10" gimmick. Thought it was getting kind of stale at the end of his WWE run but maybe they have found a way to refresh and revive it.

Shawn Spears signing with AEW is interesting while he could be a success story like Cody Rhodes was he also has the potential to end up in a Damien Sandow like position where we all thought he could do better outside of WWE but in reality he really didn't do that much better. I look forward to seeing whether or not he signs permanently with AEW since apparently not all the wrestlers in the Casino Battle Royal are actually signed to the company so thats interesting. 

Shame we won't be getting Page VS PAC but I understand why, if it is a shoot and PAC didn't wanna lose to Page fair enough it is a bad sign but one loss of yes a high level talent doesn't necessarily mean AEW is completely screwed. Hopefully Page gets a singles match at Double Or Nothing since I think that'd be cool but he could just be off the card or have a great performance in the Casino Battle Royal.

From what I've heard they will be announcing a new opponent for Page this week. Hopefully, he gets a good opponent.

Liked the fact they signed Shawn Spears, hopefully he gets to do well and rekindle a bit of the magic he had down on NXT. He will probably slot in nicely on the Upper Card since people will know who he is, heck many of the people watching TNT will know him more than Omega. He wouldn't be a terrible shout for World Champion potentially or more realistically winning the Casino Battle Royal.
