AEW Double or Nothing Backstage Scoop; Post-Anarchy Arena Injury Report

This past Sunday, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) hosted its annual Double or Nothing pay-per-view event, coming to you live from the world-renowned T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This grand spectacle marked the fifth anniversary of this highly anticipated event, tracing its origins back to the company's inception in 2019.

One of the standout moments from this year's action-packed card was the end of Jade Cargill's impressive undefeated streak and TBS Title reign. Cargill, who has been a dominant force since stepping into the AEW ring, experienced a significant setback, adding an exciting twist to the narrative of her wrestling career.

Anarchy In The Arena Unleashed

In addition to this unexpected turn of events, the arena was set ablaze with a high-stakes Anarchy In The Arena matchup. The intense showdown involved the ruthless Blackpool Combat Club squaring off against the seasoned and ever-so-dynamic faction, The Elite.

This bout truly encapsulated the spirit of AEW's motto — "Change The Universe" — with its thrilling drama and unpredictability. Transitioning to the health and safety front, Fightful Select shared some encouraging news from the chaotic Anarchy In The Arena matchup.

According to their reports, all participants emerged from the ferocious fight without sustaining significant injuries. This indeed comes as a relief, especially in light of last year's unfortunate incident involving top-tier talent Bryan Danielson.

Danielson endured a severe concussion at Double or Nothing 2022, which led to a prolonged absence from the ring that left fans and fellow wrestlers deeply concerned. Adding a layer of nostalgia and honor to the event, Fightful also disclosed that Owen Hart's son, Oje, was present backstage during Double or Nothing.

Accompanied by Martha Hart, Oje's presence was a touching tribute to the late wrestling icon Owen Hart. Martha, Owen's widow, graciously shared additional details about this year's Owen Hart Memorial Tournament, creating a poignant connection between AEW's past and future.

This year's Double or Nothing was a stimulating blend of unexpected outcomes, high-octane action, and touching tributes that showcased AEW's commitment to honoring wrestling's past while innovating for its future.
