AEW Double or Nothing takes place in Jacksonville this weekend, featuring an absolutely stacked card.
The event marks All Elite Wrestling’s second anniversary, and what a couple of years it’s been for Tony Khan and company.
Despite the pandemic, the promotion has gone from strength to strength and shows no sign of slowing down.
Without further ado, here are nine AEW matches you need to check out.
9. Best Friends vs. Santana & Ortiz (Parking Lot Brawl) – Dynamite (September 2020)
Last year, the Best Friends and Santana & Ortiz got the wrestling world talking with one of the most entertaining TV matches in recent history.
The bout, which took place in a parking lot, was packed with innovative spots including a brutal double powerbomb onto a car windshield.
Dave Meltzer gave it one of his famous five-star ratings while hardcore legend Mick Foley also praised the match on Twitter, calling it a “world class brawl”.
The unique yet thrilling main event is a great example of how Dynamite has something for absolutely everyone.
8. MJF vs. Jungle Boy – Double or Nothing 2020
MJF and Jungle Boy are two of the best young talents in the wrestling world and their match at Double or Nothing stole the show.
Sometimes wrestling is best when it’s kept simple, which was the case here as the cocky heel was taken to his limits by the defiant underdog.
Both men played their roles perfectly and there were many convincing near falls before the eventual finish.
We’re sure we will see many more great matches between the pair in years to come, and maybe one day the AEW World Title will be on the line.
7. Cody Rhodes vs. Brodie Lee (Dog Collar Match) – Dynamite (October 2020)
Sometimes it’s good to go old school, and that’s exactly what Cody Rhodes and Brodie Lee did on Dynamite.
The pair put on a thrilling Dog Collar match – a great example of how classic stipulations still have a place in the wrestling world.
The feud helped put the TNT Title on the map, paving the way for the likes of Darby Allin and Miro.
Sadly, this would be the final time Lee stepped between the ropes before his tragic death. His legacy will live on through AEW.
