by | Oct 7, 2023 | AEW News | 0 comments

Professional wrestling has long been punctuated by annual hallmark events that excite its global fanbase. Just as WWE has its WrestleMania, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) boasts “Double or Nothing” as one of its premier annual spectacles. An event that has rapidly etched its place into pro-wrestling history, Double or Nothing showcases the finest talents AEW has to offer.

A Brief History of Double or Nothing

The inception of Double or Nothing is closely intertwined with the origins of AEW itself. The event debuted on May 25, 2019, and served as the very first pay-per-view offering from the newly formed wrestling promotion. The success of this initial event in Las Vegas, Nevada, set the stage for AEW’s emergence as a significant competitor to WWE’s decades-long dominance.

Over the years, Double or Nothing has played host to some of the most memorable and game-changing matches in the world of professional wrestling. Whether it’s the unveiling of new talent, the climax of long-running storylines, or just the sheer exhilaration of witnessing the unexpected, the event never fails to capture the imagination of its viewers.

Past Winners and Highlights

2019: The inaugural event witnessed moments like Cody Rhodes facing his brother Dustin in an emotional battle, and Chris Jericho establishing his dominance in AEW with a win over Kenny Omega.

2020: This year saw the first-ever “Stadium Stampede” match, a wild brawl throughout Jacksonville’s TIAA Bank Field. The Elite and Matt Hardy battled The Inner Circle in this innovative and entertaining match.

2021: Among the highlights was the return of a live audience, which added electricity to every match. The Triple Threat for the AEW World Championship among Kenny Omega, Orange Cassidy, and PAC was especially riveting.

2022: This edition was known for its high stakes and intense matchups, with the AEW World Championship once again being a focal point.

Double or Nothing 2023 Results

As with previous years, 2023’s Double or Nothing was an event filled with drama, surprises, and high-octane action. Here’s a deeper look at the results and significant occurrences:

  • Jade Cargill’s Streak Ends: As reported by Forbes, one of the standout events of the night was the loss of Jade Cargill, an athlete who had remained undefeated until that point.
