Darby Allin

The official main event for AEW Double or Nothing is revealed

During the picture-in-picture break, the heels were in control most of the time. They tortured Darby with abdominal stretches (MJF would help pull Guevara’s arm for added leverage). We return to fullscreen with Darby finally reversing Guevara’s hold and crawling his way to the corner. He shoves off MJF and kicks Guevara off. No, they stop him again! Darby slides through the legs and finally gets JB in.

Perry with a crossbody and a clothesline on both men. JB with suicide dives back and forth, followed by a rolling senton on MJF. He tries for one on Guevara, but he dodges, so Allin comes through with the missile tackle. Perry with the tiger driver on Guevara for yet another two count. He climbs to the top rope, but MJF holds his foot down, allowing Guevara to deliver the Spanish fly for another close fall. MJF tags in and mounts Perry with punch after punch. Guevara is then tagged right back in, with MJF trying to toss him on Perry. JB avoids it and tags in Allin. Allin with his rabid strikes, headbutts, and a code red to Guevara. His attempt at a code red on MJF turns into a powerbomb spiking Allin on his head.

Allin got a blind tag on Perry, but MJF didn’t see it. Perry gets a surprise snare trap on MJF, but suddenly, Guevara emerges and breaks it up. Guevara with a corkscrew moonsault over the top rope on both of his outside opponents. MJF hits this insane-looking brainbuster on Perry but still only secures a two-count with it. Guevara is tagged in and nails the Swanton bomb on Perry. It’s still only two! Guevara is mad MJF is blind tagging himself in. Guevara does a blind tag of his own as MJF hits the knee powerbomb. They are arguing now! It’s falling apart between these two.

MJF slaps Guevara in the face! Sammy is pissed! He superkicks MJF! Perry rolls up Guevara, following it up with the running finishing forearm. Darby blind-tagged and hit the coffin drop for the victory! We’ve got a four-way between Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Sammy Guevara, and MJF as our Double or Nothing main event!

Sammy Guevara

Sammy Guevara & MJF vs. Jungle Boy & Darby Allin

We see Jungle Boy make his entrance first, followed by Darby Allin. MJF and Sammy Guevara come out together with similar outfits and a mashed-up version of their entrance themes. As mentioned, if Darby and JB win this one, they will be added to the main event at Double or Nothing to make it a four-way match.

The bell rings, and JB and Guevara are starting this one out. Guevara gets the initial advantage with a shoulder tackle, but Perry nips up and hits a chop, followed by his signature arm drag off the ropes. Guevara runs to the corner and cowers under MJF. Friedman and Darby are tagged in. They lock up, and MJF keeps using headlock takeovers until Allin reverses them, eventually hitting his signature arm drag, followed by a cradle for a two-count.

MJF and Guevara take some time on the outside to talk strategy. MJF comes back in, and they ask for JB to tag in. Perry does, but MJF keeps distracting everyone by yelling that Perry is pulling his hair. Guevara is knocked off the apron. JB whacks MJF with a chop and tags in Darby. Darby is in control at first, but then Guevara knees him on the apron when the referee is distracted. Guevara and MJF are in control now, doing more cheating by choking Darby with the scarf while the referee is distracted. He saw the scarf in the ring but not the choking, so he continued the match.

MJF is antagonizing JB and the ref on the outside so Guevara can continue the scarf choking. Darby reverses! He chokes out both of the men with the scarf to the crowd’s delight. Darby nearly tags in JB to get a break, but MJF pulls Perry off the apron at the last second and tosses him into the barricade. We’re going to our final break of the night!

Jungle Boy

Our main event is coming up next!

Backstage, we see Jungle Boy and Darby Allin in the backstage area getting hyped up. Darby goes to get his skateboard when, suddenly, MJF sneaks into the locker room. Friedman tells JB that if he actually betrays Allin tonight, the two of them can work together. He can have a spot next to the throne, and he’s not World Champion material. JB hated that suggestion! He says he will take the crown at Double or Nothing.

Darby walks in on them just as MJF leaves. This seems to cause some tension between Allin, who says, “I’ve got this” while he glares at JB.


Ricky Starks pulls out a win

Juice took back control during the break, wearing away at Starks as the “Absolute” star tried to fight back. We get back to fullscreen with Juice punching Starks with right hands. He tries for one more, but Starks dodges and nails Juice with a running lariat that takes him off his feet. Starks delivers a big back body drop and a back elbow in the corner. Starks with a tornado DDT, but it nearly turned into a botch there. Juice tries to come back, but he eats a brain buster into the mat instead.

Starks comes off the top rope but Juice puts the knees up to reverse. The crowd rallies as Juice runs to the opposite corner and crushes Starks with a cannonball. Juice with a top rope hurricanrana and a stiff lariat, but, no! It’s still only a two count, y’all. The attempt of the juice is loose finisher is thwarted, but as he goes for it once more, he eats a spear and the roshambo for the 3 count! Starks is your winner!

Of course, Jay White of Bullet Club immediately shows himself and pounces on Starks. He beats him down in the corner and tries to hit him with the blade runner. Starks actually reverses it and nearly hits White with the roshambo! Instead, Juice pulls Jay to safety at the last second.


Juice Robinson vs. Ricky Starks

Ricky Starks comes out, followed by Juice Robinson. Jay White comes out momentarily but then decides to walk to the back (I bet we’ll still see him later on). The bell rings and they lock up with force. Starks is backed into the corner but chops Juice in the neck, followed by several strikes. A clothesline sends Juice out of the ring. He meets him on the outside but takes a kick to the abdomen. Ricky tosses Juice into the barricade with force. He tries once more but Robinson rakes at his eyes as Starks screams. Juice breaks up the count, which allows Ricky a moment to recover and hit a big back body drop on the floor.

They continue battling on the outside where Juice Irish whips Starks into the steel ring steps with a thud. He follows it up with a scoop slam on the floor to Ricky. Juice attempts one on the steel steps but Starks shoves him into the ring post, climbs up the steps with Juice on his shoulder, and tosses him down to the floor as we go to the commercial.


What's going on at the Briscoe farm?

We come back from the commercial with Jeff Jarrett and his crew coming to Mark Briscoe’s house and doing a bunch of yard work to apologize for their recent actions. Papa Briscoe walks up while Jarrett prepares to play a song. He says he knows Mark has known Lethal for a long time, but he’s gotta look out for the other guys in overalls (Sonjay and Santham). Lethal and Jarrett challenge FTR for a Tag Team Title match at AEW Double or Nothing, while Mark Briscoe is set to wrestle on Rampage Friday.


Wardlow vs. the weekly jobber

Wardlow comes down to the ring with Arn Anderson in tow. Logan LeRoux (I think) is the opponent’s name. It only takes some hard clotheslines and the powerbomb symphony to end this one. He also pulled out “the glock” with his fingers and shot the guy, sending a message to his manger, Arn. Wardlow wins!

Wardlow grabs the mic and says he hasn’t even broken a sweat, and he wants some more. Wardlow says he want a TNT Title open challenge against Luchasaurus. He calls out Christian and the dino, and they quickly respond and come out to the audience. Christian brings out the mic and says Baltimore is ignorant trash, so they need to keep it down while he conducts some business.

Cage says he could send Luchasaurus down to the ring to take the TNT Title now, but that’s not going to happen, especially in Baltimore. He tells him that the shot doesn’t belong to Luchasaurus, the title shot belongs to Cage. Wardlow looks a bit confused about what he was told.

Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega is ready for Jon Moxley

Kenny Omega is backstage, mentioning Moxley’s words when he delivered a promo earlier. Don Callis interrupts, saying every day, he is reminded about the giant scar he left on his head. He calls Jon a sick, twisted, narcissistic sociopath, and it’s all going to come to an end.

Omega says there is no planet where Mox can wrestle better than him, but he knows Jon can fight. There might be blood on either side, but everything will come to “an end” in Detroit. Everything BCC has done to The Elite, Takeshita, and Callis has made things personal. Next week, it will be goodbye and goodnight.

Sammy Guevara

Sammy Guevara is interviewed

Backstage, Renee Paquette speaks with Sammy Guevara. She mentions ensuring he can lie down at Double or Nothing and get the money MJF promised him. MJF interrupts, but Sammy is annoyed and says he watched the show back last week and saw no one in the car. MJF gives some lame excuse about his back pain from carrying the company for so long. He apologizes for being a “bad friend,” which Sammy accepts and embraces him with kisses on the head. Looks like they’re back on the same page!


Tres day Mayos Trios Battle Royale

This one is probably going to move like lightning! The bell rings, and we’re off. The only way for a team to be eliminated is by all three members of the team being eliminated. The crowd sings, “Oh, scissor me, daddy,” for The Acclaimed. The first person out is Ari Daivari of the Varsity Athletes. Evil Uno gets worked out of the ring by the QTV guys, Aaron Solo and QT Marshall. The Lucha Bros have their fear factor broken up by the remaining varsity athletes, but The Lucha Bros regain the advantage and knees Tony Nese off the apron for the elimination.

El Hijo del Vikingo eliminates the final member of the Varsity Athletes to eliminate the first trio. Alex Reynolds of The Dark Order battles Aaron Solo on the apron until QT Marshall comes over and assists in eliminating a second member of The Dark Order. Suddenly, The Lucha Bros eliminate Solo and Marshall! Powerhouse Hobbs is pissed off now! He eliminates both of The Lucha Bros by himself! Vikingo nails him with a kick to the head and dives through the second rope onto Marshall and Solo. He tries for a crossbody on Hobbs but is caught and pressed out of the ring.

Daddy Ass is dropped by Hobbs, but The Acclaimed avenges him by working together and using Hobbs’ momentum against him. Butcher hid outside and jumped on the apron to eliminate Max Caster. Butcher and Blade pose like The Acclaimed and stay beating on Bowens and Daddy Ass. John Silver is still in this! He fights back at The Blade, delivering a delayed vertical suplex. Silver with two pump kicks and a German suplex on Butcher, but no! Blade eliminates Silver to take out Dark Order. It’s down to The Acclaimed vs. Butcher, Blade, & Kip Sabian. They go to battle, with Sabian watching for his moment to attack. He delivers a dropkick and senton on Bowens in the corner.

The full trio picks up Daddy Ass and prepares to take him out of the ring, but they start fighting back! Bowens comes back and eliminates Blade! Bowens turns to Sabian and Butcher and fights them off. Daddy Ass starts coming back with Bowens, and they hit stereo famassers. They eliminate Sabian and Butcher simultaneously for the victory! The Acclaimed got it!


Time for some trios action

The tres de mayos battle royale is scheduled to come up next! We get a brief rundown of the rest of tonight’s card.

The House of Black is backstage and say their trios titles remind them that some people get away with murder by defying the rules. The other members explain how they want to defend the titles going forward, and if a trios team wants to follow what is described, they can have a shot at the belts.


The Outcasts are too much for Willow alone

The Outcasts kept up their dirty heel tactics during the picture-in-picture break, allowing Saraya to maintain control the majority of the time. At one point Saraya reverses an Irish whip and gets several chops and strikes on Saraya. She hits a hop attack in the corner, followed by a snapmare and a kick. Willow with a spinebuster for a close two count as we go back to fullscreen picture.

Saraya nails Willow in the face with elbows. As she attempts a sharpshooter, she’s put in an inside cradle for another two. Saraya delivers the night cap for another two count! This one is close, my friends! Willow with a death valley driver, but as soon as she goes for the pin, Toni Storm gets on the apron and distracts the ref. Willow pounces Ruby into the ropes! There are too many distractions, though, so Saraya gets the goodnight and gets the win.

The Outcasts keep beating down on Willow when, suddenly, Hikaru Shida returns for the first time in months! She looks like she’s going to ward of The Outcasts, but, no! She just hugged Saraya! Why?! She is about to spray paint Willow when we see Britt and Jamie Hayter roll out from under the ring. Shida double-crossed them! She sprays Saraya in the face and whacks them over and over with a kendo stick. She spray paints “AEW” on the Outcasts as the segment ends.


Saraya vs. Willow Nightingale

Saraya enters first, followed by Willow Nightingale to a strong reception from the crowd. The bell rings, and this one is off! Saraya immediately rolls out of the ring like a true heel. Willow chases her but is cut off by the other Outcasts; this allows Saraya to attack Willow on the apron. She puts her in a choke hold but is flipped into the mat. A shoulder tackle and missile dropkick follow, giving Willow a 2 count.

Willow chops Saraya in the corner, followed by a clothesline and a chop. Ruby Soho distracts the ref while Toni Storm grabs Willow’s foot and allows Saraya to gain the advantage. She delivers several knees to Willow on the apron, then tossing her out of the ring. Saraya moves over to the ref and distracts him as Toni and Ruby take care of Willow on the outside. Another break!

Jon Moxley

BCC have strong words for The Elite

We come back from the break with Excalibur reminding us what happened before the break between Cole and Jericho. Backstage, Cole is being taken out of the arena as Britt Baker runs up and slaps Jericho in the face.

We see the BCC talking about Bret Hart and how he said he is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. Danielson says that was wrong because he was the best wrestler of all time, and if not him, someone in the BCC is. And there will be a person better than him in the future, which he hopes Yuta will become. He says that’s what makes them different from The Elite — they want the best wrestlers to get the spotlight.

Mox speaks up, saying that BCC aren’t bullies even though The Elite says they are. He says The Elite isn’t on the cutting edge of wrestling like they once were. Mox hypes up his steel cage match against Kenny Omega for next week, saying he promises that he and Kenny will leave one hell of a mark.

Darby Allin

Darby Allin and Jungle Boy are interviewed

Jungle Boy says he knows he and Darby don’t like each other much, but they have things in common. They both fought their way to the top of the card, and they’ve never been in the main event of a PPV. But after tonight, they will be!

Darby says tonight is the night, and it’s showtime! We go to a commercial.

Adam Cole

Adam Cole gets the final word

During the picture-in-picture break, the babyfaces were in control at first, but for the majority of the commercial, the JAS worked away at OC. We get back to fullscreen with Cassidy fighting off Hager but he still can’t get to his corner. Garcia tags in and punches away at OC in their corner. Garcia dances in the ring to taunt, tagging in Hager after. He bear hugs OC. JAS are maintaining the control by teaming up on their opponents, but OC finally starts fighting back. He gets super close to tagging in Strong, finally hitting a stundog millionaire to tag in Roddy. He hits a backbreaker on Garcia and Parker. He chops Hager and uses an Olympic slam for a close two count.

JAS gangs up on Strong, but he tags OC in once more. Garcia puts OC in the dragon slayer. But Cole runs in and superkicks Garcia to break it up. Chaos ensues, with several men coming in at once as they trade signature shots. OC with the beach break on Garcia for a close two count! That was a close one! They get back to their feet with OC hitting his lackadaisical strikes on Garcia. Daniel crawls out of the ring, so Bandido and OC dive on top of everyone at ringside.

Strong hits a running knee, followed by the final boom on Parker to win the bout. Cole immediately sprints up the ramp and attacks Jericho. The set is being destroyed as security run in and carry Cole away.

Adam Cole

Orange Cassidy, Bandido, Adam Cole, & Roderick Strong vs. The JAS

Cassidy & Bandido enter together, followed by Roderick Strong and Adam Cole. The JAS enters all together, but when they reach the bottom of the ramp, Chris Jericho’s music hits, and he comes out wearing the shirt with Britt Baker’s bruised face on it. Jericho is heading to the commentary table as Cole looks on, infuriated.

The teams all stare at each other face-to-face as Aubrey Edwards tries to get things under control. Roderick and Garcia start out locking up in the middle of the ring. No one has a clear advantage, so they start trading forearms. Roddy with chops as he tags in Cole. Cole throws Garcia in the corner and stomps away at him. Garcia returns with a knee to the abdomen and then tags in Angelo Parker. Cole gets the advantage again and tags in Bandido. Parker is hit with an Irish whip in the corner and a snap powerslam, but as he poses, Menard runs in and knocks Bandido over.

All of a sudden, both teams start brawling inside and outside of the ring. Parker into the ring post and barricade; meanwhile, Menard punches away at Bandido on the floor. The brawl continues as Hager and OC battle inside the ring. OC nails a tornado DDT that has Hager role out of the ring. He tries to hit a suicide dive, but he’s caught and spiked into the post.

Bandido comes over the rope to avenge OC, hitting a swanton to take out two of the JAS. Cole tries to battle his way up the ramp through JAS to get to Jericho at commentary, but he’s thwarted away. It’s chaos all over the ring. Bandido delivers his delayed vertical suplex, but Menard breaks it up. He tries to do it to Menard, but that’s reversed too. Instead, Bandido hits a double suplex on both men as we go to our first commercial.


AEW Dynamite starts now!

Here we go, ladies and gents! We see the intro video to Dynamite along with the intro pyro!

Excalibur welcomes us to the show as Orange Cassidy begins making his entrance!

Tony Khan

AEW hires a new Wrestling Administration Coordinator

It’s been announced on Twitter by AEW Founder and President Tony Khan that Will Washington, formerly a member of the Fightful team, has signed with AEW as the Wrestling Administration Coordinator. This role will have Washington oversee live events, social media, creative, PR, and more.

Khan wrote:

This explains Washington’s recent announcement that he’s finishing up the Day After Dynamite podcast. Congrats to Washington on his success!


The week ahead: What's in store for WWE fans this weekend

WWE has a big weekend ahead — not only is another episode of SmackDown slated for this Friday, but we also have the Backlash premium live event to look forward to on Saturday, May 6. Like Backlash, SmackDown will be taking place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and will be a homecoming for International Latin hip-hop star Bad Bunny! He will appear the night before his San Juan street fight against The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest.

Only a few matches have been announced, including Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Karrion Kross. You can see the current card below:

  • Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Karrion Kross (w/ Scarlett)
  • Bad Bunny comes to SmackDown
  • The O.C. (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson) vs. The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar)

Saturday’s card for Backlash, headlined by Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes for the first time ever, can be seen below:

  • Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes
  • The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa and Jimmy & Jey Uso) vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn & Matt Riddle
  • SmackDown Women’s Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Zelina Vega
  • Raw Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Iyo Sky
  • United States Championship: Austin Theory (c) vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Bronson Reed
  • Street Fight: Bad Bunny vs. Damian Priest
  • Seth Rollins vs. Omos

Matt Riddle says The Bloodline has taught him some lessons in WWE

Matt Riddle has always been a wacky character on screen, but upon his return earlier this Spring, he had a new attitude that brought in more elements of his serious side. “The Original Bro” opened up about his shift in personality on the newest installment of The Bump, saying that it’s been inspired most by Roman Reigns and The Bloodline.

I think the one thing The Bloodline has shown me and Solo has shown me that I can’t always be so happy, care-free, go-lucky because if I am, people take advantage of me. You know, it’s about finding that middle ground. I don’t want to be too mean and too angry, and then like, that’s just not a good way to live life. But I also don’t want to be too nice and giving because then people take advantage, so I’ve just got to find that perfect bro.

Adam Cole

Adam Cole enraged as he awaits Chris Jericho's arrival to AEW Dynamite

We’re just about an hour away now from a new episode of AEW Dynamite, but one person is already prepared to throw down before the cameras even go live. AEW’s Twitter page posted a video of Adam Cole (Bay Bay) pacing outside of Chris Jericho’s dressing room as Renee Paquette asks him how he’s feeling.

When Jericho gets here, when he finally decides to show up, I am going to rip his damn head off!

Along with the continuation of this storyline, the rest of tonight’s Dynamite card can be seen below:

  • Darby Allin & “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry vs. Sammy Guevara & AEW World Champion MJF (If Darby Allin and Jungle Boy win, they will be added to the World Title match at Double or Nothing)
  • Orange Cassidy, Adam Cole, Bandido, & Roderick Strong vs. Matt Menard, Angelo Parker, Jake Hagar, & Daniel Garcia
  • Tres de Mayo trios battle royale
  • Saraya vs. Willow Nightingale
  • We’ll hear from The Elite
  • Ricky Starks vs. Juice Robinson

WWE celebrity superfan Maria Menounos survived pancreatic cancer

Maria Menounos has been a fan of WWE all her life and even competed in a tag team match at WrestleMania 28, teaming with Kelly Kelly against Beth Phoenix & Eve Torres. She’s also regularly participated in WWE interviews and the premium live event kickoff shows. But Menounos’ toughness extends much further than just being willing to get in the ring against two of WWE’s most talented wrestlers at the time.

In a new interview with People, Menounos reveals that she’s been on a long journey as of late with her health. A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes eventually led to the discovery of other setbacks — stage 2 pancreatic cancer — all while expecting a child.

“I’m like, ‘How in the freaking world can I have a brain tumor and pancreatic cancer?’ ” she says. “All I could think was that I have a baby coming.” (h/t People) Finding it in its early stages saved her life; on February 16, she underwent surgery to remove the tumor, part of her pancreas, spleen, a large fibroid, and 17 lymph nodes. “It was super painful. I couldn’t move or lift myself up.”


Sha Samuels spotted at the WWE performance center

Sha Samuels was one of the many WWE NXT UK talents released when the brand was nixed in August 2022, but even in the wake of the announcement, Samuels kept optimistic. It paid off for him, too, as we would later have the opportunity to be a guest coach at the Orlando Performance Center for several weeks this past March.

It appears Sha has received some other opportunity at the PC, according to a new PWInsider Elite report. He was spotted there this past week, though the nature of his visit has yet to be determined.

Eddie Dennis

Eddie Dennis returns to WWE in non-wrestling role

Eddie Dennis was a standout talent in NXT UK, feuding with stars like Dave Mastiff and Trent Seven after signing on to the brand in 2018. Unfortunately, the UK-based brand closed in 2022, and Dennis was one of several superstars released from their contracts.

It appears, however, that Dennis has returned to the company in a new role! Instead of donning the wrestling boots and applying his skills in the squared circle, Dennis now serves backstage as a writer and producer for NXT. A video recently posted to WWE’s LinkedIn account revealed the detail this week.

You can read more about this story here.

Damien Priest

Damian Priest has a message for Bad Bunny

This weekend, Puerto Rico will be ignited by the presence of two homemade celebrities: International music star Bad Bunny and WWE’s Damian Priest. But instead of celebrating their homecoming together, Priest and Bunny will actually be colliding one-on-one in a street fight match.

Ahead of this weekend, Priest stopped by WWE’s The Bump to send one final savage message to Bunny.

Bad Bunny, whatever delusions you have, you need to get rid of them. This Saturday, this isn’t a popularity contest. This isn’t a concert. This isn’t for fun. Whatever aspirations you have, they’re not going to happen. You’re going to get hurt; I’m going to hit you as hard as I can. I’m going to embarass you in front of your friends, your family, and your fans.

LA Knight

Sound off: Who will be WWE's 2023 breakout star?

We all know those major players in WWE, like Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Brock Lesnar, but legends always have to start somewhere. The question then becomes, which superstars rising through the ranks have that star power to be the next top performer?

Earlier today, WWE posed the question online:

Who will be WWE’s breakout star of 2023?

As per usual, the WWE Universe had a variety of responses. Some see the man who is reportedly a leading candidate to win the 2023 men’s Money in the Bank match — LA Knight — as a fast-rising star, while others went to the women’s roster and named people like Dakota Kai.

You can see some of the responses below, and chime in with some of your own responses at this link here:

Olympic gold medalist Tamyra Mensah-Stock signs with WWE

Breaking news this evening — Tamyra Mensah-Stock, recognized as the first Black woman to win gold in freestyle wrestling, has officially signed a contract with WWE. She reported to the WWE Performance Center this past Monday, May 1st, and is inspired to move up to WWE’s main roster in one year.

“I love watching the athletes just in the ring, just going what they do best,” Mensah-Stock said. “I just see their personalities just shine through the television, and I see their strength. Just everything about them resembles me, and I’ve just wanted to be a part of that.” (h/t ESPN)

Along with Tamyra, WWE has hired various Olympic Medalists before with varying levels of success to show for each person. There are legendary Hall of Famers like Kurt Angle, successful mid-card talents like Chad Gable, and the developing Gable Steveson, who won gold the same year as Mensah-Stock at the Olympics.

Good evening!

Hey there, pro wrestling fans! We’re back for another edition of AEW Dynamite, and tonight’s a significant episode; we’ll see Sammy Guevara & MJF battle Darby Allin & Jungle Boy, and if Darby & Jungle Boy pull out the victory, they will be added to the World Title match at Double or Nothing to make it a four-way.

Elsewhere in the news, AEW Founder and President Tony Khan has delivered an update on ticket sales for All In at Wembley Stadium later this Summer. The company has sold nearly half of the 90,000 tickets available, with the current total of about 43,000 tickets sold just in the pre-sale.

Trinity Fatu, formerly known as Naomi in WWE, has finally returned to the ring under the Impact Wrestling banner. For those who continue wondering what happened the night she walked out of WWE, Trinity has finally spoken out about where her mind was during that fateful night.
