16 Ups & 4 Downs From AEW Double Or Nothing 2019


4. A Laboured Librarian Segment

Librarian AEW

A Buy In backstage segment saw Alicia Atout attempt to interview Kylie Rae ahead of her bout with Nyla Rose and Dr. Britt Baker.

She didn't get far. Peter Avalon showed up before Rae could say anything of note, trying to "shhhh" the exuberant babyface, before his fellow 'Librarian,' Leva 'Blue Pants' Bates showed up, hitting her male counterpart with a "shhhh" of his own medicine.

Though Rae's enthusiasm came across well, this awkwardly acted skit didn't hit the mark. The participants didn't look comfortable in such a Sports Entertainmenty environment. Yes, AEW had to get the Librarians onscreen after building the angle on Being The Elite, but Bates and Avalon needed something more than this. It was the corniest thing on the show.
