This article is for AEW Double or Nothing Match Card.
AEW has hosted their Ticket Announcement Party for their first event ‘Double or Nothing’ which will be held on 25th May 2019 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. At the Party, AEW has introduced various Wrestlers who have signed with them which includes Kenny Omega, PAC (formerly known as Neville in WWE), Rey Fenix, Pentagon Jr., Nyla Rose, SoCal Uncensored and Kylie Rae. Below is the full match card from AEW Double or Nothing event.
#1 Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho
These two faced off for the first time at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January 2018 in a no disqualification match for the NJPW United States Championship. Kenny Omega retained the championship in half an hour long match. Jericho attacked Omega after his match at ALL IN event in September 2018 and they later got involved in a tag team match. When Omega signed with AEW and was unveiled at the Ticket announcement party, Jericho was quick to confront him again. They got engaged in a brawl at the party which lead to AEW announcing their match for Double or Nothing.
#2 The Young Bucks(Matt and Nick Jackson) vs Lucha Bros(Rey Fenix & Pentagon Jr.) – AAA Tag Team Championship Match
At the Las Vegas Party, the Lucha Bros attacked the Young Bucks followed by the announcement that they have signed for AEW. Bucks retorted by attacking them during their title defense at AAW event in February and challenged them for a match at Double or Nothing. Next month, Bucks appeared at AAA wrestling events in Mexico after the Lucha Bros have successfully defended their AAA Tag Team Titles. Bucks challenged them for the title match at the spot and won it within a minute. Later, it was annonced that AAA Tag Team Titles will be on the line in their match at Double or Nothing.
#3 Cody Rhodes vs Dustin Rhodes
They have eliminated each other at WWE Royal Rumble matches and also became the WWE Tag Team Champions but the Rhodes Brothers, or to say ‘Dust Brothers’ have only faced each other once in their career(at Fastlane 2015 where Goldust defeated Stardust). After teasing Cody’s opponent for months, AEW finally revealed that Dustin Rhodes would face his brother at Double or Nothing. It was also signified that Dustin will don the red paint, instead of his usual Gold version at the event.
#4 SoCal Uncensored(Frankie Kazarian, Christopher Daniels, Scorpio Sky) vs Strong Hearts(Cima, El Lindaman and T-Hawk)
At AEW’s inaugural rally in Jacksonville, SoCal Uncensored challenged Cima to get two other partners from OWE for a six men tag team match at Double or Nothing. OWE later announced that T-Hawk and El Lindaman will partner Cima for the match.
