According to PWInsider, AEW’s Double Or Nothing PPV was a huge success and the promotion felt the sense of ecstasy and euphoria on how The PPV went down. The report also states that AEW President Tony Khan said that Double Or Nothing was one of the best PPVs of all time and once their TV deal with TNT starts, a better product and quality will be shown as they want to make sure the shows are fun and not a drag to watch.
As seen in Cody Rhodes’ entrance, he took a sledgehammer and destroyed a throne that would replicate something that WWE COO Triple H would use in his own entrance, especially in big events such as WrestleMania. Khan was asked to comment about Cody Rhodes’ entrance and Khan said that at the end of the day, they are just trying to create the best show possible and if creating a sense of competition is what they have to do, then it was a good thing.
WWE Hall Of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart made a surprise appearance and unveiled The AEW World Championship and according to the report, he slipped down the stairs while heading to the back, but he was said to be okay. The fall likely happened due to him exiting a different way from where he entered and just missed a step. The fall was reportedly not shown on The PPV.
We also saw Dustin Rhodes lose to Cody and was a bloody mess for almost the entire match after he was busted open from the contact to the exposed turn buckle. Dustin is currently scheduled to team up with Cody against The Young Bucks at AEW Fight For The Fallen on July 13th in Jacksonville, Florida. On Twitter, Rhodes said, “I’m ok. God bless y’all and from my heart of hearts, the greatest night of my life.”
There were several notable people in the crowd and the backstage area including AEW Owner Shahid Khan, Kelly Klein, Tracy Brooks, Scarlett Bordeaux, Killer Kross, Bill Apter, Noelle Foley, Frank The Clown, J-Wow from Jersey Shore & “Iron” Mike Tyson, which you can check out in the post below:
