The 4 Most Memorable Moments From AEW Double Or Nothing 2023

aew double or nothing 2023 anarchy in the arena

Double or Nothing was a huge event from AEW and was another sign of how much the company has continued to grow as the packed T-Mobile Arena saw a night of fascinating matchups.

There were high hopes for what is one of the biggest events in the AEW calendar. The company saw some big PPV sales and there is more interest around the world than ever, especially with the number of wrestlers you can only see in the AEW roster.

The event garnered more interest in terms of online coverage and plenty of people headed to sports betting online to make their predictions on the various matchups.

In this guide, we’re recounting some of the top memorable moments and matchups from the event, over a week on. While some of the matches were a little underwhelming, there were some really great moments too.

Anarchy in the arena sees BCC win through

This was quite a fascinating watch, as a live band (we’ve since learned they’re called the Violent Idols) were playing Wild Thing while the match went on. This was a callback to the company’s last anarchy match.

The match was certainly no disappointment and some of the top moments included Wheeler Yuta pinning Kenny Omega, and the amazing superkick by Matt Jackson where he lost his shoe.

Blackpool Combat Club took the victory in this one but it was a crazy match that will definitely be remembered.

Fans boo the end of Adam Cole and Chris Jericho

AEW turned up the heat on this particular feud and a street-fighter-looking Cole took on Jericho in this unsanctioned match. This had been built up a great deal and was the first ever match between them. Adam Cole spent a long time out of the ring, of course.

The match started out with a brawl but when it got going, there didn’t seem to be the sort of needle we might have been led to expect when reading the buildup to this fight.

Britt Baker got involved with a kendo stick and she hit Jericho, but then Cole ended things when he reached for a chain and the match was stopped by the ref. The crowd were not impressed and booed the end of this fight – it was generally a really mixed match.

Considering how much attention had been put on this unsanctioned match, the fans could maybe have expected a little more. Our full review of the event explains in more detail.

The fatal 4-way

The Pillars match wasn’t given the top billing but it was certainly interesting. Darby Allin came in impersonating Elvis while MJF came in on a throne – this was all after Sammy and Tay had announced they are expecting a baby.

Jungle Boy got some boos, and Sammy Guevara was a highlight at the start of the match – that is, until MJF told him to lay down and let Guevara take the win.

The match was actually far better than we expected. Darby Allin may have thought that was it when he got his side headlock takeover but Jungle Boy broke it up as he starts his journey as a heel of AEW (we predict).

Jungle Boy was then teasing Allin and got even more boos, but Allin hit the Coffin Drop and managed to take the W!

Kris Statlander shocks to end Jade Cargill’s undefeated streak and take the TBS Championship

Kris Statlander’s win may have come as a surprise after her long absence. The much-loved homegrown talent took on Jade Cargill – who was undefeated in two years – and not many had predicted that Cargill would lose in this way.

This was one of the best matchups of the event as Statlander was a popular choice to become AEW’s second-ever TBS champion. She did so in style and we’ll all be wondering what happens next, though she has already made one defense of the title.


This is one of the four big events on the AEW calendar and rumor has it that the PPV was strong. While it won’t go down as one of the greatest nights in wrestling history, there was still plenty to enjoy, including these four high-profile moments.

Double or Nothing is full of a great mix of stars from years gone by, as well as new and up-and-coming wrestlers. The AEW roster continues to grow and do very well in pay-per-view sales and we’re certainly looking forward to the next events.
