On Saturday, May 25th, All Elite Wrestling presents their inaugural event AEW Double or Nothing. In an event months in the making, the promotion has pulled together some of the finest talents from all over the world to converge and be part of something new, different, special and most importantly, for the fans. This event promises to have as many as 9 matches scheduled through the evening. Much like our other previews, here we anticipate what could happen in a match involving four incredibly talented men that have come together to create a matchup that will showcase strength, technique, agility, and speed. We present to you our what to expect for ‘Best Friends,’ Trent Beretta and Chuck Taylor against Angelico and Jack Evans at AEW Double or Nothing.
The announcement of the match occurred, as readers may be aware, through the ‘Being The Elite’ YouTube show. A ‘threatening message’ was left by individuals whose identities were obscured, though it was pretty clearly Best Friends, and in the message, they demanded a match of their own and not to be a part of the ‘Buy-In’ Casino Battle Royale. The message, which was sent to AEW Executive Vice Presidents Matt and Nick Jackson, initially seemed threatening before quickly turning to be amusing, as neither of the Jackson brothers took the demand seriously.

This was followed by a message by Angelico via Twitter that it was time for a change (or something to that effect) in his career. The following day, he was joined by his longtime friend, colleague, sometime opponent and sometimes tag team partner Jack Evans, when the duo announced that they were All Elite. As a result of these events, the booking of this match came about rather quickly. Both teams are very well established; in the case of Best Friends, Chuckie T and Trent Beretta have been together for a few years and were friends (perhaps even best friends) for a long time before that. Their time together dates back when Roppongi Vice broke up with Rocky Romero and Beretta going their separate ways, and eventually, Chuck Taylor became Beretta’s new partner. Those that have seen them are aware that they blend humor with skill in all of their matches. To expect a match that is outright serious or outright funny from realistic.
Their opponents Angelico and Jack Evans will be laser-focused on getting the better of them. These two have moved on from their time in Lucha Underground and now are afforded a new opportunity in AEW. This match won’t be one where fans see feats of strength, but rather a continuous action that is reflective of the style of both teams. In keeping with AEW’s declaration that wins and losses will matter, this will be a case where a win by either team immediately puts them in a position to be a legitimate threat for a future championship. The other tag team matchup on the card, pitting the Lucha Bros against The Young Bucks, immediately sets the stage for future matchups involving any or all of these teams. And don’t forget that SoCal Uncensored is also among the teams to contend with in this division.
Fans can anticipate both teams working to their strengths while actively looking to draw a reaction from the crowd. Something that may tip the scales is that Best Friends have been plying their craft on the independent circuit for the same amount of time as both Angelico and Jack Evans. Both teams have international experience, competed on television, and been just as successful as a team as they have been individually. There are other ties among these men: for example, Chuckie T, Trent Beretta and Jack Evans have all been a part of Ring of Honor at some point or another throughout their career. That experience could prove to be what pushes this match to the next level, as ROH has long been a place where talent has committed themselves fully and completely to their craft. This will be the match where two sets of best friends go double or nothing. Here is what to expect: at AEW Double or Nothing for this tag team match.
