2020 AEW Double or Nothing card, matches, predictions, date, All Elite Wrestling PPV price, location

AEW returns to pay-per-view on Saturday, May 23 with Double or Nothing. The now-annual event for the promotion was originally planned to return to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas before the coronavirus pandemic forced it to hold the event at an “undisclosed location.” Though the location is undisclosed, AEW has recently returned to the Daily’s Place Amphitheater in Jacksonville, Florida, to film its weekly Dynamite television program on TNT, making the venue a likely candidate.

The main event brings together two men who were part of iconic factions in WWE during the same era, with Jon Moxley — formerly Dean Ambrose of The Shield in WWE — and Brodie Lee — formerly Luke Harper of WWE’s Wyatt Family — battling over Moxley’s AEW world championship. In addition, the Double or Nothing card will hold the historic distinction of crowning the first TNT champion in AEW history among the other action that will take place at the event. 

AEW Double or Nothing is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET, with the event being available for purchase on Fite TV and B/R Live ($49.99) as well as traditional PPV through your cable provider ($59.99). 

AEW Double or Nothing matches

AEW World Championship — Jon Moxley (c) vs. Brodie Lee: After Moxley began to move on from his dealings with The Inner Circle, he found himself squarely in the sights of Brodie Lee and The Dark Order. After a vicious attack, Lee demanded a title shot only to be told by Moxley that he only needed to ask. Now, Lee will attempt to add power to an increasingly interesting stable by collecting the top belt in AEW.

AEW TNT Championship — Cody vs. Lance Archer: After an exciting tournament leading up to crowning the first-ever champion, Cody and Archer are now set to battle over the TNT title. Archer defeated Colt Cabana and Dustin Rhodes to make the finals while Cody defeated old rivals Shawn Spears and Darby Allin to punch his own ticket. Cody can “never again” challenge for the AEW world championship after losing to Jericho months back, leaving the TNT title as his prime target and the intimidating Archer — as well as mentor Jake “The Snake” Roberts — in his way. After Roberts left Brandi Rhodes laying in the ring and tauntingly covered her with a snake, the match has taken on more significance.

Casino Ladder Match — Darby Allin vs. Colt Cabana vs. Orange Cassidy vs. Rey Fenix vs. TBA: There’s nothing AEW loves as much as gambling themed matches for title shots on pay-per-view. The winner of this match will earn a future shot at the AEW world title, and there’s an interesting mix of personalities lined up. Darby Allin and Ray Fenix are the daredevils, Colt Cabana and Orange Cassidy are there to play comic relief. There’s another participant still to be announced for the match, and that could be key to deciphering who will walk away with a championship opportunity.

MJF vs. Jungle Boy: MJF’s time on the sidelines due to a variety of “injuries” will come to a close as he faces Jungle Boy. The two have some history, having met in a four-way match at Fyter Fest — which was won by Adam Page.

AEW Double or Nothing predictions

AEW Women’s Championship — Nyla Rose (c) vs. Hikaru Shida: While the match has not been made official, it’s hard to imagine Rose not entering a PPV with a title defense. Shida has won seven straight singles matches, and that would seem to make her the right woman to challenge for the belt.

Matt Hardy vs. Chris Jericho: Too much has gone on between these two to not pay off in a pay-per-view match, though it might not be at Double or Nothing. Let’s assume Hardy will find his way into the ring with Jericho on May 23, though, especially after Jericho and Sammy Guevara defeated Hardy and Kenny Omega in a tag match.

The Revolt debuts: It’s hard to imagine burning as big of a match as The Revolt vs. The Young Bucks under the current circumstances, but let’s have some fun and assume that we at least see the former Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder of The Revival fame in WWE make a splash at Double or Nothing. AEW has used pay-per-view debuts in big ways in the past.
