All of the hype has been leading to this. The first-ever All Elite Wrestling branded pay-per-view is here. Double or Nothing will air on Saturday night from Las Vegas, Nevada. Here are match predictions for all the matches on Saturday, from the Buy-in Pre-show to the Kenny Omega-Chris Jericho main event.
21-Man Casino Battle Royale
A wide open field. Some surprises could have a shot at winning, as four spots are still open in the match. Shawn Spears, Jimmy Havoc, and even Glacier could be the winner. My pick is a young upstart to get the win, and be insufferable on his way to a title shot.
Pick – Maxwell Jacob Friedman
Kip Sabian vs Sammy Guevera
A nice showcase match for two young talents. Either one could be the right call for the win here. Guevera takes the win in a hard-fought battle.
Pick – Sammy Guevera
So-Cal Uncensored (Scorpio Sky, Christopher Daniels, & Frankie Kazarian) vs Strong Hearts (CIMA, T-Hawk, & El Lindaman)
The OWE standouts Strong Hearts feel like the pick here. What a good way to be established with a western audience quickly – beat a well established team like SCU.
Pick: Strong Hearts
Best Friends (Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor) vs Angelico & Jack Evans
This should be an excellent match. Angelico & Evans are a really exciting tag team and could be an option for the first AEW tag champions. Best Friends can also afford a loss.
Pick: Angelico & Evans

I must say I don’t know a ton about the matches participants. It’s a coin flip for me. Coin lands on…
Pick – Kong, Sakazaki & Sakura
Britt Baker vs Nyla Rose vs Kylie Rae
A tough match to call. All three of these women look to be the foundation of AEW’s women’s division going forward. Expect a babyface win here.
Pick: Kylie Rae
Cody vs Dustin Rhodes
The fact that this match is finally getting a big stage to happen on is a big treat. It will be interesting to see how Dustin heels it up in this match, or if he does at all. I see Dustin winning and it leading to another, larger blow off down the road.
Pick: Dustin Rhodes
Young Bucks (c) vs The Lucha Bros (Pentagon El Zero M & Fenix) – AAA World Tag Team Championship
The Young Bucks holding AAA tag team gold doesn’t look to be a long-term thing. Eventually the Lucha Bros, or another team, will take the gold away from them. It doesn’t feel like it’ll be at Double or Nothing.
Pick – Young Bucks
Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho
The main event of the evening will have two titans battling to be one of the top contenders for the AEW World Championship. Having picked a heel to win the Battle Royale, having a babyface win in the main event will set up a prime title match down the line.
Pick: Kenny Omega
