AEW Double or Nothing 2024 Preview

In 2019, AEW began with an epic Double or Nothing show. I should know…I was there! The tradition of AEW Double or Nothing in Las Vegas continues with a return to where it all started.

It is time to go back to the MGM Grand Garden Arena five years later as we preview AEW Double or Nothing 2024.

The massive Double or Nothing card is quite stacked with personal feuds and important title matches. On Sunday night, seven titles will be on the line.

And who will win in the battle between The Elite and Team AEW? Let us look at what should be a loaded card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Thunder Rosa vs. Deonna Purrazzo
(Buy-in Pre-Show)  

It is a grudge match between two of the best in the AEW Women’s Division. Rosa and Purrazzo worked together against “Timeless” Toni Storm early this year.

But after both lost a title match against Storm at AEW Revolution and Dynasty, respectively, it seems jealousy set in. 

They have been involved in multiple physical altercations in recent months. Rosa even defeated Deonna on a recent AEW Rampage.

Who will get the upper hand in this increasingly personal feud? It should be a fun way to kick off an exciting night in Las Vegas.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Chris Jericho (c) vs. Hook vs. Katsuyori Shibata

(FTW Championship)  

The “Learning Tree” Chris Jericho has certainly been a unique presence of AEW programming in recent weeks. Jericho has seemed to embrace the smiling, politician role well. Having Big Bill as a backup doesn’t really hurt his chances of winning matches, either.

He has made enemies of Hook and Katsuyori Shibata in recent weeks as well. Both men have lost FTW Championship matches against Jericho in pretty violent fashion. They will get another shot in an FTW Rules Three-Way match on Sunday night.

The odds seemed stacked against Jericho, but with no rules and Big Bill as backup, can he survive? “The Learning Tree” would like to continue imparting his wisdom to the AEW audience. Can the “For the World” Champion keep it going in Las Vegas?

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Roderick Strong (c) vs. Will Ospreay
(AEW International Championship)

Will Ospreay has quickly become one of the most popular wrestlers in all of AEW since joining the roster full-time. It is easy to see why the crowd loves Ospreay. He is constantly putting on incredible matches on AEW Dynamite and recently at AEW Dynasty as well. 

On April 24, he won a Casino Gauntlet Match to earn an AEW International Championship match at Double or Nothing.

The current champion, Roderick Strong, currently isn’t going to take the challenge lightly. He and the Undisputed Kingdom have done everything in their power to derail Ospreay in recent weeks.

On this week’s AEW Dynamite, Strong attacked and blooded Ospreay after their tag match. Can Ospreay over the Undisputed Kingdom and win his first singles title in All Elite Wrestling? We know the fans will certainly be supporting Will on Sunday night in Las Vegas.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Jon Moxley (c) vs. Konosuke Takeshita
(IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Eliminator Match)

It was a special moment when Jon Moxley defeated Tetsuya Naito at Windy City Riot to finally win the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship.

Moxley has been fighting brutal matches in New Japan Pro Wrestling since 2019. It was great for AEW and NJPW fans to see Moxley finally win the biggest prize in New Japan.

But celebrations never last long in pro wrestling. Moxley quickly became the target of the Don Callis Family. After Moxley defeated Powerhouse Hobbs, he called out Konosuke Takeshita. Takeshita responded the next week on Dynamite with a vicious attack.

It set up a IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Eliminator Match for Double or Nothing. If “The Alpha” Takeshita wins, he will get a future title shot.

Takeshita has already defeated so many AEW stars. Can he add Moxley to the list? We know both will pull out all the stops in this potential show-stealer.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Orange Cassidy vs.  Trent Beretta

Since the very start of All Elite Wrestling, no group has been closer than Trent Beretta, Chuck Taylor, and Orange Cassidy. The Best Friends and Cassidy stuck together for five years and even during Cassidy’s incredible AEW International Championship reign.

That all changed on the April 3rd Dynamite. Beretta and Cassidy lost a tag team match and a chance for the vacant AEW World Tag Team Championship. Beretta attacked Cassidy and “Best Friend” Chuck Taylor that night. The partnership of five years had ended.

On the April 27 edition of AEW Rampage, Beretta defeated Taylor in a brutal Parking Lot Brawl. So brutal in fact, it likely ended Taylor’s in-ring career. Can Cassidy get revenge on Sunday night? It is clearly the most personal match on the entire card. 

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
“Timeless” Toni Storm (c) vs. Serena Deeb

(AEW Women’s World Championship)

Serena Deeb missed fourteen months of her in-ring career due to seizures. It was a terrifying ordeal for sure.

But “The Professor” made her return in January of this year and quickly set her sights on the AEW Women’s World Championship. She gets her chance at AEW Double or Nothing.

While Deeb has shown a vicious side in recent weeks, Storm has resorted to more mind games. It seemed to have pushed the AEW audience to Storm’s side and let out a more vicious streak from Deeb.

Can Storm survive the challenge? Deeb is one of the best wrestlers in All Elite Wrestling. Can she end the “Timeless”, seven month reign? It certainly seems quite possible. 

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
The Bang Bang Gang (Jay White, Austin Gunn & Colten Gunn) (c) vs.  Death Triangle (Pac, Rey Fenix and Penta El Zero Miedo
(Unified World Trios Championship) 

The Bang Bang Gang unified the AEW and ROH World Trios Championship at AEW Dynasty. After defending the titles on a recent episode of AEW Collison, they seemed to turn their attention to Pac.

Jay White has particularly set his sights on Pac, which has led to some confrontations in recent weeks. 

On this week’s AEW Dynamite, Pac didn’t come alone. The reunited Death Triangle arrived on the scene. The former Trios Champions will get a shot against the Bang Bang Gang on Sunday night. With these six talented competitors, it could be a show stealer for sure. 

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Adam Copeland (c) vs.  Malakai Black
(AEW TNT Championship)
(Barbed Wire Steel Cage Match)

At AEW Dynasty, Adam Copeland was part of a losing effort against the House of Black. Copeland was even hit with the Black Mist. But the mind games of the House of Black were only just beginning.

Copeland defended his TNT Championship against members of the House of Black, Buddy Matthews, and Brody King on recent AEW shows. They were some vicious and bloody matches, for sure.

Copeland defended the TNT Championship in those matches but showed a truly dark side in the process. Was the “Black Mist” affecting him as it has done others in the past?

The answer was a resounding yes. To get his hands on Malakai Black, he challenged Black to a Barbed Wire Steel Cage Match at Double or Nothing for the TNT Championship.

What lengths will these two go to on Sunday night? It should easily be the bloodiest match on the entire card.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Willow Nightingale (c) vs.
Mercedes Moné
(AEW TBS Championship)

At last year’s NJPW Resurgence, Willow Nightingale fought Mercedes Moné to become the first-ever NJPW Strong Women’s World Championship. In the match, Moné sadly broke her ankle and lost the match to Nightingale. Mercedes left professional wrestling for a very long time.

At AEW Big Business, Mercedes Moné made her long-anticipated debut in AEW. But even on that first night in Boston, she seemed to set her sights on Willow Nightingale.

She even declared her first match would be for the AEW TBS Championship at AEW Double or Nothing in May. This was even before Willow’s title match at AEW Dynasty. But Nightingale did defeat Julia Hart to win the AEW TBS Championship in April.

The match was set. Mercedes would make her in-ring debut against the person she blames for costing her a year of her career.

Can Moné make Willow’s reign a brief one? It will be fun to see this increasingly personal rivalry come to a head at AEW Double or Nothing.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
Swerve Strickland (c) vs. Christian Cage
(AEW World Championship)

It was a special moment when Swerve Strickland finally defeated Samoa Joe to win the AEW World Championship at AEW Dynasty. It was a culmination of his incredible work and popularity with the AEW audience. It was finally “Swerve’s House”.

But you never have time for rest in professional wrestling. His first challenger will be Christian Cage. Cage and Strickland were tag team partners at AEW All In last August in a Coffin Match against Sting and Darby Allin. Cage still blames Strickland for the loss.

Christian is trying to play the numbers game against Strickland. The other members of the Patriarchy (Killswitch and Nick Wayne) have viciously attacked the AEW Champion.

The long-time allies of Strickland, the Mogul Embassy, betrayed him as well. Can Strickland overcome the odds at AEW Double or Nothing? We know the fans will be on the Champions’ side in Las Vegas.

AEW Double or Nothing 2024
The Elite (Matthew Jackson, Nicholas Jackson, Jack Perry, and Kazuchika
Okada) vs. Team AEW (Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood, Darby Allin, and Bryan Danielson)
(Anarchy in the Arena Match)

The Young Bucks, Matthew, and Nicholas Jackson have abused their powers as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW in recent months.

The power-hungry bosses have cheated their way to AEW tag team gold and even reformed the Elite with new members Kazuchika Okada and Jack Perry.

As Tony Khan tried to welcome Perry back to the company on the April 24 edition of AEW Dynamite, Perry and the rest of The Elite viciously assaulted the company boss.

With Khan out of the picture, The Elite has been running AEW. They have booked matches and wrecked vengeance on their enemies. But thanks to fellow EVP Kenny Omega (a victim of an attack himself), that will all change at Double or Nothing. 

It is time for Anarchy in the Arena, a vicious tradition of Double or Nothing. The newly formed Team AEW of FTR, Bryan Danielson, and a returning Darby Allin, will face the Elite on Sunday night.

If the previous Anarchy in the Arena matches are any indication, we are in for a wild match. 

Can Team AEW get one over on The Elite? Will The Elite’s reign of terror continue? It will certainly be fun to find out on Sunday night.
