Thursday’s AEW ticket announcement event in Las Vegas featured plenty of new faces and signings, leading to several matches that will be part of their highly-anticipated Double or Nothing event in May.
While not officially announced, an angle between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho effectively confirmed the two will hook it up again in a rematch of their spectacular match at New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom 12.
Omega was talking at the podium about why he signed a deal when Jericho’s music hit. He walked out and didn’t say anything to the crowd, but rather confronted Omega and the two quickly began to brawl before several wrestlers pulled them apart. Omega then signed off with his signature catchphrase to close out the show.
Another physical angle set up a tag team match between the Young Bucks and the Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix). As Matt and Nick Jackson were leaving the podium after announcing the signing of the Best Friends, the Lucha Bros came out and stared down the Bucks before attacking them with a superkick and piledriver, leaving them laying.
Here’s a look at the still developing card with both officially announced and expected matches based what we saw Thursday:
Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho*
Young Bucks vs. Lucha Bros*
Hangman Page vs. PAC
SCU vs. CIMA and two OWE wrestlers to be named later
Nyla Rose vs. Kylie Ray*
