Three huge matches have been added to the card for the May 12th edition of AEW Dynamite.

At AEW Dynamite Blood and Guts it was revealed that Kenny Omega will defend his AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing. The triple world champion will face either PAC or Orange Cassidy, who meet in the ring next week.

The AEW Tag Team Titles will also be on the line as The Young Bucks defend their titles against SCU. The team of Frankie Kazarian and Christian Cage became number one contenders after winning a Fatal-Four-Way match at Blood and Guts. The duo saw off The Varsity Blonds, The Acclaimed and the Jurassic Express to earn a shot at the gold.

After laying waste to Kip Sabian on the April 28th episode of AEW Dynamite, Miro has also announced his intention to win the TNT Championship. Current champion, Darby Allin wasn’t in action in the ring at Blood and Guts but still left the show worse for ware. After an altercation backstage, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky threw Allin down a flight of concrete steps. The face paint wearing daredevil was last seen being attended to by officials.

Those huge match-ups will be joined by the already announced clash between Jon Moxley and Yuji Nagata. The bout will see the Japanese legend challenge for Moxley’s IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship.

Nagata is a certified legend of Japanese professional wrestling. His achievements span across the three major Japanese men’s promotions: NJPW, AJPW and Pro Wrestling NOAH. His tournament victories, to name a few, include All Japan’s Champion Carnival (2011), NOAH’s Global League (2013) and both the New Japan Cup (2007 and 2011) and the G1 Climax (2001).

Finally, it has also been announced that Cody Rhodes and the undefeated Jade Cargill will be appearing on the show. You can see the full card below.
