The Double Or Nothing 2 go home edition of AEW Dynamite took place last night and the night was highlighted with a raft of returning stars.
First up we had PAC appearing on the show via pre-taped promo from his home in England. We haven’t seen The Bastard in a while so it was superb to see he is very much in the mix despite the ongoing Coronavirus travel ban.
The main event of the show saw Matt Hardy face off with Sami Guevara. The conclusion of that match saw the action skip to the site of Double Or Nothing’s Stadium Stampede where The Inner Circle were viciously beating down one of their opponents for Saturday, Kenny Omega. After weeks off the show, The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson) careered down through the stands to rescue their Elite colleague. Jericho’s cohorts did regain the upper hand until a returning ‘Hangman’ Adam Page sprinted the length of TIAA Bank Field to wade into the action.
One of the main matches for this weekend’s PPV will see The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sami Guevara, Santana and Ortiz) face The Elite (Omega, Page, Hardy & The Bucks) in a five on five Stadium Stampede match that looks to take place across the vast playground that is the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team. You just know those guys will be rubbing their hands together at what they can do with that canvas to work on!
Elsewhere, Dustin Rhodes vs Shawn Spears was added as the final match for Double Or Nothing that will be carried in the UK on FITE.tv. What is presumably the final card is below:
