There are eight games on the map with one game on the buy-in pre-show. Mike Tyson will make a special appearance at the AEW TNT championship game and “present the championship to the winner”. There is also additional excitement at the casino ladder match with a mystery participant to be announced during the event. Below you will find an overview of each match on the map and forecasts based on the recent reservation. In the comments, please share your predictions
AEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Jon Moxley (c) against Brodie Lee
From its beginnings to the first Double or nothing a year ago, Jon Moxley got into a groove as the anti-hero of AEW’s lone wolf. His program with Kenny Omega has brought Moxley to his most violent state of mind in years. Moxley’s feud with Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle reminded us of how the two had worked together in the past and showed that Moxley could be that kind of Stone Cold-type antihero champion Steve Austin. Moxley is at his best as an outsider. Brodie Lee & The Dark Order is a great match against Moxley’s skills.
Moxley & Lee’s only recorded game before this was a Chicago Street Fight that opened WWE Extreme rules 2015 * With Brandi as ring announcer *. The match started hot, but went behind the scenes and finally in an SUV that pulled away for about forty minutes. The two had to work to recover the crowd on their return and managed to arrive.
It will be exciting to see the wrestling skills of Brodie Lee and Jon Moxley outside of their fighting capacity. Although there are probably shenanigans involved in this The match Dark Order, search for Jon Moxley & Brodie Lee to present their evolution compared to their previous match with chips on their shoulders big enough to fill the TIAA banking field. Moxley is a hero who is fair at the moment. Many feel isolated, some because they are literally isolated, and Moxley is a man who stands alone against all odds and fights until he can no longer do anything. Moxley will win here and push Lee to an even more extreme rage that will continue to erupt from his character Mr. Lee while the quarrel continues.

WOMEN’S AEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (NO DQ / NO ACCOUNT)
Nyla Rose (c) against Hikaru Shida
Hikaru Shida was on a roll in 2020, winning nine singles victories while his only loss came in a four-game match on January 1. Nyla Rose has been dominant since her victory over Riho in February to win the AEW women’s championship. The advantage of Nyla in terms of power and size is undeniable: Rose exceeds Shida by at least 60 pounds. Shida will not back down from Rose a bit in this match. She has been the number one candidate for months without the possibility of a title. The No DQ / No Count-Out stipulation added to the match favors Rose on the surface, but Shida’s attack on the larger Rose would be limited without weapons.
This match is an enigma because there are no babyfaces with a legitimate win / loss record to challenge Rose if Shida fails. Riho could challenge Rose’s rematch, but it’s unclear when she will be allowed to return to the United States. Although it seems premature for Rose to lose here, AEW has a wealth of heels in the women’s division and needs to develop more babyface talents as legitimate competitors for the women’s championship. Turn to Shida to use her knee strikes and her weapons to her advantage for the upset victory over Rose.
Hikaru Shida via pinfall
AEW TNT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Cody vs. Lance Archer
Mike Tyson will present the title to the winner.
Cody has been a snakebit when it comes to big AEW games. His defeat against Jericho at Full Gear followed by his defeat against MJF at Revolution. Apart from these big losses, Cody won 9 games in 2020 and seems dominant. The only man more dominant than Cody was Lance Archer. Archer’s convincing wins over Colt Cabana and Dustin Rhodes show the veteran is ready to take the next level in AEW. Archer has Jake “The Snake” Roberts in his corner while Cody has Arn Anderson in his. So far, Archer has shown no weakness for Cody to exploit in his AEW matches. As tall as Cody is, it’s hard to see him win this game. The crowd seems to be feeding Cody when he is most down and there will be no audience for this match outside of AEW staff. Mike Tyson the x factor in this game. Tyson in 2020 is considered an adorable ancient lethal weapon. Tyson trained a lot for a return to the boxing ring. Watch for Tyson who is trying to show that he is still dangerous and that he can still attract money as an attraction.
Archer has advantages over Cody in terms of size and power, Cody having an advantage in terms of speed. Watch Archer to test Tyson and knock you out. Cody will win and pose with Tyson at the end of the match, but Archer will attempt a rematch as soon as possible with Tyson banned from the ring.
Cody via pinfall
CASINO SCALE MATCH
Darby Allin against Colt Cabana against Orange Cassidy against Joey Janela against Scorpio Sky against Kip Sabian against Frankie Kazarian against Luchasaurus against TBA (Mystery Entrant)
The winner receives the future match of the AEW world championship.
This match concept was created by Chris Jericho (and Brian Gewirtz) for WrestleMania 21, it is therefore natural that the match will follow Jéricho until AEW. In this match, Colt Cabana has problems with Kip Sabian’s disrespect, and Kip Sabian simply cannot beat Darby Allin. This leaves Scorpio Sky, Frankie Kazarian, Luchasaurus, Orange Cassidy, Joey Janela and the mystery participant as participants who have no serious personal distractions to get on the road to victory.
Mystery participant identity rumors indicate Brian Cage, Drew Gulak, Sting, Jeff Cobb and Jimmy Havoc are names most likely to appear – artists recently released by WWE are still subject to non-disclosure clauses compete for two more months, so no Zack Ryder.
Watch for Scorpio Sky to shine in this match as EAW continues to kick the tires in a single Scorpio Sky race. Colt Cabana will seek revenge after Sabian defeats him on AEW Dark with the help of Penelope Ford and a low blow – Sabian takes a pill shot in this game. Joey Janela replaces Rey Fenix after Fenix had a bad fall on Dynamite. Hopefully Cassidy is still relatively uninjured after also having suffered an ugly fall on Dynamite last week. With Fenix out of the game, the biggest obstacle to Cassidy’s victory was removed. Cassidy has taken a hit in recent weeks and will have to defeat a fresh Darby Allin above all the other competitors to win. Now is not the time to break the Jurassic Express, so Luchasaurus will not win here, but will create a lot of chaos and serve as a great mobile man who can help high places. Kazarian’s role in all of this is unclear. Watch Kazarian in this match because he is the only competitor who seems out of place in this match. If Brian Cage shows up, he will win. If he doesn’t show up then, Darby Allin makes the most sense here. Allin’s first game with Moxley in November was fantastic and left us wanting more.
Brian Cage (or Darby Allin if Cage is not our mysterious participant)
MATCH STAMPEDE MATCH
The Elite (Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, The Young Bucks and Matt Hardy) vs Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz)
The Inner Circle and Elite have been fighting since the birth of AEW and the two factions will compete in the very first Stadium Stampede Match. Watch Hangman Page run 50 meters to deliver a lariat during their fight last week Dynamiter gave us a great overview of tonight’s game. The most ridiculous, exaggerated and breathtaking stunts in this game are the best. This quarrel went from blood and guts to a DDT-style comic quarrel. Reality not being very funny right now, this match will be a welcome party against the laws of nature. The game was reportedly scheduled in advance on Friday evening and includes several cameos and interesting features that could not be reached during a live broadcast. Hangman Page’s emotional journey will be something to watch here as he is clearly not on the same page as his fellow members of The Elite, but Matt Hardy will bring that extra special element to avenge Vanguard I and achieve victory for The Elite .

MJF vs. Jungle Boy
MJF returned two weeks ago after a fatal nail injury and endangers Jungle Boy. MJF removed Marko Stunt and punished him after the game with the help of Wardlow. If Jungle Boy doesn’t have Luchasaurus to support him against Wardlow outside, it will be an incredibly difficult match for Jungle Boy to win. Jungle Boy can lose here and not lose momentum as a rising star in AEW. The match appears to be an opportunity for upheaval, but MJF and Wardlow appear to be destined for AEW gold in the near future. Jungle Boy (much like Scorpio Sky) is someone that AEW is carefully considering for a singles race, but the breakup of Jurassic Express seems premature here. Jungle Jack Perry is young and full of potential, but he has more to accomplish in the team division before moving on.
MJF via submission
Penelope Ford vs. Kris Statlander
Britt Baker had to abandon this match after his leg was crushed by Kris Statlander & Hikaru Shida by slamming Nyla Rose on the top of his leg. Penelope Ford steps in to replace Baker in this match and she will do admirably. Ford claimed a huge, upset victory by running a fisherman Suplex’s make-up suit over former AEW female champion Riho on March 11, AEW Dark. Statlander is not ready for the concentrated Ford, which gave him adjustments in the Dynamite game on May 13. Statlander needs something to give her a mental reset to put her back in the running for the AEW Women’s Championship. Until then, Statlander remains a woman full of potential.
Penelope Ford via pinfall
Dustin Rhodes vs. Shawn Spears
Shawn Spears spent most of 2020 looking for a team partner, but as the COVID crisis hampered his ability to work with various wrestlers around the world, Spears turned to Dustin Rhodes. Dustin’s humiliating loss to Lance Archer has left him vulnerable and Spears can feel blood in the water. These two excellent wrestlers will face off in a classic injured veteran battle to stay alive against the hungry player. Rhodes looks vulnerable here, but count on him to win a surprise victory against Spears. Spears has a lot of ability, but needs direction. If Spears can ever put it together, he can be a big star. CNN spoof of Spears on last week Dynamiter could be the vehicle that helps him drive it up. After the loss of Spears, he will attack Dustin and put him on the shelf. Spears wants revenge on Cody and will come after him once Cody and Lance Archer have finished their business.
Dustin Rhodes via Pinfall
Best friends vs. private party
The winners are the number one contenders for the AEW World Team Championship.
With the Dark The order could not travel due to COVID19, The Best Friends and Private Party were elevated to the ranks of contenders # 1 and # 2 respectively in the tag division. Best friends have huge wins on Jurassic Express, Havoc & Sabian, The Butcher & The Blade and TH2. Best Friends & Private Party also clashed once on AEW Dark previously with The Best Friends get the victory at this meeting. Chuck Taylor’s “Awful Waffle” knockout seemed devastating and Trent seemed perfectly synchronized with his teammate. As exciting as Private Party is to watch, best friends have a lot of momentum going on right now and they should compete well with Kenny Omega & Hangman Page for the AEW Tag Team Championship.
