    What main events Double or Nothing?


    I haven't been following too closely, but I feel like there's a number of options they can go in at Double or Nothing to close the show.

    Traditionally main eventing with your world title match is the way to go for 95% of wrestling PPVs. However, I'm not sure Moxley Vs Lee is really that hot, at least not as hot as other matches on this show are.

    Then you've got the TNT Championship tournament finals between Cody and Archer. Archer's been booked super strong, Cody matches in this company are always important, the managers are on fire, and if they want the TNT Championship to be as close to the world title as possible in prestige, then main eventing this show is one way to do it. Oh yeah, and that Mike Tyson guy is going to be there to award the title to the winner.

    Finally there's the big 5 on 5 match between the Inner Circle and The Elite plus Hardy. On the face of it, it doesn't seem as important as the two title matches, but we've recently seen WWE end both Wrestlemania and MITB with outside the ring, cinematic style matches and I think it could be really tough to go from matches like that, back to in-ring matches with no crowd. Maybe it's too jarring to follow a normal match with this so they'll go off the air with this.

    I'm leaning towards Cody/Archer main events. How about you?

    I’ve never been totally into automatically making the world title the main event. If booked well, it should be prioritised as the hottest angle, the most anticipated match and rightfully in that spot but if something else connects with the fans more then give that the spot.

    I'll say it - Cody or the Elite main eventing over the world title match would be very on-brand.

    I believe it'll be the Stadium Stampede. I think the World Title match will be somewhat early in the show. The TNT Title will be the semi-main and then the Stadium Stampede will be the proper main event.

    I'm a bit of a mark for first Championship matches main eventing, even if this is to be a secondary title.

    Re: What main events Double or Nothing?

    I have to be honest, I think AEW have done a good job of overshadowing their World Championship match every time, pretty much. At least that I can recall.

    This time, they've got two matches that instantly feel more important; at least in my eyes.

    Tough one. I'm leaning towards the Elite & Hardy vs the Inner-Circle match being the ME.

    Re: What main events Double or Nothing?

    I think that they’ll go with Stadium Stampede ending the show - it could very well take everyone out of the rest of the show, either if it’s good or if it’s bad. If it lands well, then going to Mox/Lee afterwards would be quite a bit of a come down for the viewer.

    I could potentially see Cody/Archer main eventing to give the new title some credibility, but unless it’s for a very good reason, a secondary title match shouldn’t be given higher billing than the primary title.

    Re: What main events Double or Nothing?

    Isn’t it kinda weird though that the TNT title isn’t being crowned on the TNT show? Thought the intention would be that they’d hope to pop a rating to see the tournament finals.

    I agree, haha. Could we be in for some sort of screwy finish at DON so the champion is actually decided on an episode of Dynamite?

    Re: What main events Double or Nothing?

    I can see it being the Stadium Stampede between The Elite/Hardy vs Inner Circle, besides Cody and Archer, it’s had the strongest build so far imo.

    I’m sure Lee and Mox will be a fine match but I haven’t really been grabbed by this angle, I can see that ending in a screwy finish to protect both guys.

    Re: What main events Double or Nothing?

    Normally I'd say Moxley vs Brodie Lee but they've already shown that they aren't afraid of putting the hotter and more important match at the top of the show either. Jericho and Cody are two of the most popular wrestlers they have and it didn't main event Full Gear over Moxley/Omega.

    Right now, I'd say the Stadium Stampede match main events. It's closing out the shows more often than the Moxley/Lee segments. It feels like the bigger match, but I'm not into the Moxley/Lee feud at all so I have a biased view point on it.

    I never thought Cody vs Archer will main event. It feels like a strong Semi main event but I don't see it closing the show, however.

    My problem with Stadium Stampede is that it doesn't feel like the end of the angle to me, more of a novel hold over until they can finish it with Blood & Guts.

    Stadium Stampede and it shouldn't be anything else. Brodie Lee has been such a disappointment so far.

    I don’t necessarily have a problem with Brodie Lee and his character, but I do believe they should have build it up more.

    That being said, stadium stampede should close out the show.

    Cody vs Archer can really have that main event feel with the Mike Tyson presentation tbh.

    It says a whole lot that no one thus far as voted for the World Title match.

    I see value in having Mike Tyson there but I don't think it's really something that makes the match feel worthy of main eventing. AEW themselves could see it that way though.

    Re: What main events Double or Nothing?

    I don’t think it says much about AEW that we’re not hyped for the main event other than a fuckload of plans got thrown out the window due to corona.

    I’m convinced the plan was probably to use MJF’s momentum from beating Cody to build to a title shot, but he went into quarantine. At the same time, whatever the plans were for Brodie Lee probably went out the window as they kept losing more of the roster and had to fast forward him into a main event he maybe wasn’t due to be in until the next PPV.

    Yeah I don't believe it says anything other than shit came up that was beyond their control and they failed to create a buzzworthy World Title match in time for this show.

    It's not like it's a pattern they've developed. The Jericho/Cody match and Jericho/Moxley matches were both pretty hot.

    Im super late to the party as i don't follow AEW. How much is their PPV tomorrow?
    Wrestling fans need to give Ring of Honor a chance again.
