AEW retuens to pay-per-view tonight with Double or Nothing coming live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The main show will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will be streamed on Bleacher Report.
Double or Nothing is AEW’s oldest pay-per-view and has become a Memorial Day weekend staple for the company. The event is traditionally held in Las Vegas and the company usually leans into the location with a full casino theme to the show.
The headliner match of the event will feature MJF defend the AEW World Championship against Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara, and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry in a Pillars four-way match. We’ll also get the Elite battling the Blackpool Combat Club in an Anarchy in the Arena match and Adam Cole facing Chris Jericho in an unsanctioned match.
10 matches will line the card with seven of them having titles on the line. Follow along as we’ll keep track of tonight’s show and offer some of our thoughts below.
Blackpool Combat Club vs. The Elite (Anarchy in the Arena match)
Winner: Blackpool Combat Club via pinfall
11:47 p.m. ET: The Blackpool Combat Club promised violence and they delivered as they defeated the Elite in the main event. We got everything in this match and the BCC got an assist from Don Callis and Konosuke Takeshita at the end to come out triumphant.
AEW World Championship - MJF (c) vs. Darby Allin vs. “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry vs. Sammy Guevara
Winner: MJF via pinfall
11:12 p.m. ET: By the skin of his teeth, MJF survives and retains the AEW World title. All four competitors got some shine in a match that went over 30 minutes and the champ’s reign continues.
10:40 p.m. ET: AEW World title match about to start, meaning Anarchy in the Arena is your main event.
TBS Championship - Jade Cargill (c) vs. Kris Statlander
Winner: Kris Statlander via pinfall
10:31 p.m. ET: BUT NOT FOR LONG! Immediately following the match, Mark Sterling declared that Cargill would defend the title anywhere, anytime. Out comes a returning Kris Statlander, who had been out for the last year. An impromptu match took place and Statlander put Cargill down with the Sunday Night Fever to end Jade’s win streak to become the new TBS Champion.
TBS Championship - Jade Cargill (c) vs. Taya Valkyrie
Winner: Jade Cargill via pinfall
10:29 p.m. ET: Jade Cargill remains undefeated as she puts down Taya Valkyrie with Jaded for the win.
10:21 p.m. ET Jade Cargill repping the AKA’s in her entrance.
AEW World Trios Championship - House of Black (c) vs. TBD (Open House match)
Winner: House of Black via pinfall
10:15 p.m. ET: Malakai Black hits Billy Gunn with the Black Mass and House of Black retain the trios title. Fun, competitive matchup and valiant effort by the Acclaimed.
9:58 p.m. ET: It’s the Acclaimed!
9:55 p.m. ET: AEW trios title on the line next. We’ll see who will challenge the House of Black in just a few short moments.
AEW Women’s World Championship - Jamie Hayter (c) vs. Toni Storm
Winner: Toni Storm via pinfall
9:53 p.m. ET: Toni Storm defeats Jamie Hayter to become the AEW Women’s World Champion for a second time. It was reported earlier that Hayter had suffered an injury in recent weeks, so this was a quick way to get the belt off her.
TNT Championship - Wardlow (c) vs. Christian Cage (Ladder match)
9:46 p.m. ET: Wardlow survives the ladder match to retain the TNT Championship and check out this Swanton Bomb onto Luchasaurus through a table.

9:23 p.m. ET: An irate Chris Jericho backstage has demanded a mixed tag match between him and Saraya vs. Adam Cole and Britt Baker for this Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite.
AEW World Tag Team Championship - FTR (c) vs. Jeff Jarrett/Jay Lethal (Mark Briscoe as the special guest referee)
Winner: FTR via pinfall
9:19 p.m. ET: FTR puts down Jeff Jarrett with the Shatter Machine to retain. This match gradually ramped up and we got a bunch of hijinx from a ref bump to guitar shots. Fun tag match as expected.
9:14 p.m. ET: Sonjay Dutt has been thrown out by Mark Briscoe and that woke the crowd up.
9:10 p.m. ET: Pretty decent action in this one, but the crowd needs to wake up. They’re subdued.
8:59 p.m. ET: AEW tag title match underway.
Adam Cole vs. Chris Jericho (Unsanctioned match w/ Sabu as the guest enforcer)
Winner: Adam Cole via ref stoppage
Cole wrapped a chain around his knee and hit Jericho with the Last Shot. After pummeling Jericho with strikes, the ref called the match due to Jericho not being able to defend himself. A flat ending to an unsanctioned match that left more to be desired. Hopefully this is the end of this feud.
8:49 p.m. ET: Britt Baker is here!
8:33 p.m. ET: Unsanctioned match is underway. Sabu’s inclusion in this is kind of random. They’re trying to play up Sabu and Chris Jericho having history, but they only wrestled like once in the mid-90’s and were never really in the same company at the same time.
International Championship - Orange Cassidy (c) vs. 20 competitors (Blackjack Battle Royal)
Winner: Orange Cassidy
8:26 p.m. ET: Orange Cassidy knocks Swerve off the apron and he survives. He’s been on a hell of a run through the first half of the year and has been one of the best in-ring workers in the company so far.
8:24 p.m. ET: We’re down to Swerve Strickland and Orange Cassidy as the final two standing.
7:59 p.m. ET: Just about to kick off the main show and the Blackjack Battle Royal will start things off.
The Hardy Party vs. Ethan Page and the Gunns (Matt Hardy owns Ethan Page’s contract if Hardy Party wins)
Winner: The Hardy Party
7:44 p.m. ET: The first match of the night belongs to the Hardy Party. Fun opener.
7:35 p.m. ET: Hardy Party match is underway on the Buy In show.
