Yesterday in the main event of Double or Nothing, Chris Jericho defeated Kenny Omega to earn his spot in the match with Hangman Page for the AEW World Championship.
However, what happened after the match is what will get fans talking, when the former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, now going by Jon Moxley, appeared and hit Jericho with the Dirty Deeds. He then turned his attention to Omega, and the pair fought on the stage.
