AEW announces new name, rules for Double Or Nothing battle royal

AEW’s Twitter

Pro wrestling battle royals are always messy-yet-interesting affairs, and ALL IN’s Over The Budget version was no exception. For their first show as a standalone promotion, All Elite is bringing back the stip, but they’re changing it up for Double Or Nothing.

As explained by indie refereeing superstar Bryce Remsberg on the latest episode of Being The Elite, May 25’s over-the-top elimination match with now be called the Casino Battle Royal. And AEW is giving the battle royal concept “a fresh coat of paint” by mixing-up the standard and Royal Rumble formats for entry:

Outside of what Cody Rhodes called a “really great incentive”, we still don’t know what the prize is for the winner. We do have a list of participants, however, such as Sonny Kiss, Kip Sabian, Brandon Cutler, Berretta*, Chuckie T*, Ace Romero, Brian Pillman Jr., Glacier, Sunny Daze, MJF, Joey Janela, and Dustin Thomas.

There are still plenty of spots open, so a handful of wrestlers will join that match, which is the pre-show bout for this card:

  • Hangman Page vs. PAC
  • The Young Bucks (c) vs. The Lucha Bros. for the AAA World Tag Team championship
  • Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes
  • SoCal Uncensored vs. CIMA, T-Hawk and El Lindaman
  • Dr. Britt Baker vs. Kylie Rae vs. Nyla Rose

You ready?

* Maybe. The Best Friends are trying to extort their way into a tag match on the main card.
