On the ninth episode of All Elite Wrestling’s “Road to Double Or Nothing” video series, it was revealed that Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho will be the main event of the show, competing in a Grudge Match.
Towards the end of the video, Omega spoke directly to Jericho and said:
“So, will I thank Chris Jericho if he beats me at Double Or Nothing? Isn’t that the big question? We all owe him a big thank you, don’t we? We wouldn’t be successful without you, Chris.” Omega added. “… I’ll tell you what, you’re not going to get it from me. Unless you beat me. If you can. Yeah, I’ll thank you, why not? That’s the problem
Chris. You’re going to have to beat me first. You couldn’t get the job done before, what makes you think now, without a hardcore stipulation, without you being able to use weapons, without you being able to do whatever the hell you want, that you can actually beat me? I don’t know, but I am eagerly awaiting your response, and I’m eagerly awaiting to meet you again, at Double Or Nothing in the main event.”
The video also features appearances by names like Scott Hall and Diamond Dallas Page, Eric Bischoff, Tony Schiavone, and others. It shows the AEW crew working with the Starrcast II crew and sharing ideas. One of the questions asked was if Starrcast II had enough space and they showed a vignette that this year’s show will take place at Caesar’s Palace with over 75,000 square feet and over two dozen live shows taking place.
This year’s Starrcast is sure to be a huge hit and that it’s now tied to an event like AEW’s Double or Nothing will make it an even bigger success. With Jericho and Omega as the main event, all signs point to this being a nice step in the right direction for AEW gaining more momentum.
