AEW Double or Nothing is live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this Sunday, May 28th, and AEW CEO, GM and Head of Creative Tony Khan returns to break down the biggest matches on the hottest card in pro wrestling with Ref Aubrey and special guest co-host, Will Washington!

The Four Pillars of AEW (current World Champion MJF, Jungle Boy, Darby Allin, and Sammy Guevara) battle it out for the AEW Heavyweight Championship. Toni Storm challenges Jamie Hayter for the Women’s World Championship; FTR defend the World Tag Team Championship against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal with (a hopefully impartial) special guest referee Mark Briscoe; Chris Jericho and Adam Cole face-off in an unsanctioned match mediated by the great Sabu; and Orange Cassidy puts the AEW International Title on the line against 20 challengers in a stacked Blackjack Battle Royal. Plus, Taya Valkyrie challenges Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship, Wardlow takes on Christian Cage in a ladder match, and The reunited Elite go head-to-head with the Blackpool Combat Club in the second annual Anarchy In The Arena.

Tony Khan on Mark Briscoe as special referee for the World Tag Team Championship match between FTR and Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett:

“When Mark [Briscoe] dropped Dax [Hardwood] this week, I thought, how is that going to play out in the match? But then when Mark dropped Jeff Jarrett too, it’s like ok, maybe Mark is the perfect guy to keep order in this match”

Tony Khan on the unsanctioned match between Chris Jericho and Adam Cole:

“It’s a very personal situation. These two men hate each other and they want to fight, and I think they’re gonna use all kinds of weapons. I think they want to beat the hell out of each other”
