As the world anticipates AEW Double or Nothing, scheduled for this Sunday, the wrestling company has given fans a taste of what's to come via Instagram. The lineup for the thrilling Blackjack Battle Royale has been revealed, with Orange Cassidy's coveted International Championship on the line.
Orange Cassidy, the current titleholder, and Ricky Starks, previously announced, are joined by many talents, including Swerve Strickland, Keith Lee, "Switchblade" Jay White, and Juice Robinson. The contentious rapport between Strickland and Lee, former tag team partners, has continued to brew since their partnership fractured last year.
Simultaneously, Starks has been entangled in a feud with Bullet Club Gold members - White and Robinson - adding an extra layer of tension to the impending Royale.
Additional Stars in Lineup
Fans can also look forward to seeing other notable names, such as Cassidy's confidants Chuck Taylor, Trent Berretta, and Bandido.
The lineup includes Dustin Rhodes, Brian Cage, the Lucha Brothers, Komander, Big Bill and Lee Moriarty of The Firm, Kip Sabian, Tony Nese, Ari Daivari, The Butcher, and The Blade. Orange Cassidy had proudly held the International Championship title since October of the previous year when it was still referred to as the All-Atlantic Championship.
His tenure as champion has seen him successfully defend the title against formidable opponents like Katsuyori Shibata, Jeff Jarrett, and Daniel Garcia, among others. AEW Double or Nothing is slated to feature more than just the Battle Royale.
Fans can expect a four-way contest for the AEW World Championship, an Anarchy in the Arena match between The Elite and the Blackpool Combat Club, and an AEW World Trios Championship match, where The House of Black will face The Acclaimed with "Daddy Ass" Billy Gunn.
These thrilling events will unfold at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The action commences this Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and 5 p.m. Pacific Time. Be sure to tune in to witness the exhilarating spectacle of AEW Double or Nothing.
