AEW Announces How Their Heavyweight Champion Will Be Crowned

AEW, News

In the final episode of The Road to Double or Nothing, names like Cody and Brandi Rhodes, Tony Khan, and others spoke about AEW and what fans can expect this weekend at Double or Nothing.

Saying their fan base is the “lapse” wrestling fan, Brandi suggested, “if you’re not left satisfied with Double or Nothing, I don’t think you’re a wrestling fan.”

Khan said the group still has more announcements before Sunday’s show and there are bound to be surprises.

The big announcement however, was that the No. 1 contenders for the title will be determined at this pay-per-view. One of the contenders will come from the winner of the Casino Battle Royale match that can be watched for free on the pre-show and the other contender will be determined based upon who wins the Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega match.

Those two competitors will fight at a later date to crown the first-ever AEW Champion.
