CM Punk has been the biggest star in AEW since he returned to the ring at All Out last year. On Sunday, we see if the company's biggest star can win its biggest prize. Punk challenges "Hangman" Adam Page for the strap at Double or Nothing on Sunday. Punk's pay-per-view matches, against Darby Allin, Eddie Kingston and MJF, have thus far been must see. This one is no different. (Check out our live coverage of Double or Nothing here.)
If you've seen any AEW pay-per-view in the last year though, you know they're never one match shows. Double or Nothing looks if anything like it's too loaded: There are thirteen matches in all.
Highlights look to include the finale to the Men's Owen Hart Cup, Samoa Joe versus Adam Cole. Matt and Jeff Hardy will take on The Young Bucks, and the Jericho Appreciation Society will battle with the huge team of Eddie Kingston, Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, Santana and Ortiz in a no-rules bout.
Perhaps the most anticipated match on the card, outside of the main event, is MJF's clash with Wardlow. It's years in the making, and the dastardly MJF (and AEW creative) have done a tremendous job of building up Wardlow as a breakthrough good-guy.
Following Friday's Rampage, Darby Allin versus Kyle O'Reilly was added to the show, as well as another six-man tag pitting American Top Team against Sammy Guevara, Frankie Kazarian and Tay Coni. Additionally, Ruby Soho beat Kris Statlander to advance to the finals of the Owen Hart Cup.
