All Elite Wrestling's Double Or Nothing pay-per-view finally hits Las Vegas this Saturday night (25 May), and the stakes have rarely been higher.
This could be the start of something special. The nascent promotion is on the verge of bringing true competition back to the North American wrestling scene for the first time since WCW died in 2001. They have signed a stacked roster, secured a lucrative TV deal described as "unprecedented for a start-up," and now stand an incredible chance of capturing the zeitgeist as a genuine WWE alternative - something that would've sounded impossible prior to 2018's home-run ALL IN event.
AEW talk a good game, and they've assembled one hell of a card. Hype, hope, and expectations are through the roof. Now, all they have to do is deliver. Nothing else matters if they can't do that, though the past few years have shown that doubting Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks is a foolish endeavour.
PAC vs. Hangman Page is gone, but Omega vs. Chris Jericho II, The Lucha Brothers vs. the Bucks, and Cody vs. Dustin Rhodes remain. It's an awesome card. Let's look at how it might play out...
