AEW President Tony Khan has confirmed that the Women’s Casino Battle Royale will return at AEW All Out.
Speaking on AEW Unrestricted Khan said that he was “really excited” to have the match return later in 2021.
The Women’s Casino Battle Royale hasn’t appeared at an AEW event since 2019.
Looking ahead to Double or Nothing which will feature the men’s version of the match, Khan said that it was a “special part of the card.”
“I’m glad we have the Casino Battle Royale back for Double or Nothing. It’s a special part of the card,” Khan expressed. “Last year, we weren’t able to do it. It was early in the pandemic, and we weren’t able to bring in enough wrestlers honestly to do a good match like I wanted to be able to do like this year. When we did finally do the Casino Battle Royale at All Out, it was a great match.
“It had a really thrilling conclusion. We saw with Lance Archer and Eddie Kingston out there fighting at the end, a great finish. Matt Sydal arrived at AEW and has been an important part of AEW since, and we saw some top stories erupt in the match. Best Friends and Santana and Ortiz were tearing each other apart in the match, and then they went out just a couple weeks later and had their parking lot fight that is an epic fight.”
“And I look forward to the women’s Casino Battle Royale at All Out, which is going to also be returning, really excited about that.”
Elsewhere during the appearance Khan said that AEW is heading for a “huge expansion.” While also adding that he believes that the return of a full live crowd will help the Double or Nothing card.
Double Or Nothing takes place on Sunday, May 30th at Daily’s Place, Jacksonville, Florida. The event will air live on pay-per-view and FITE TV.
