AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view (PPV) is coming up on Sunday, May 28, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Several new matches were officially added to the card on tonight’s (May 19) episode of Rampage.
First up is TBS Champion Jade Cargill, who squashed two more jobbers in back-to-back open challenge matches on Rampage, pushing her undefeated record up to 59-0. She was planning to go for 60-0, but Taya Valkyrie came back from suspension to lay her out with Road to Valhalla and let her know their title rematch is official for the PPV:

Then there’s Adam Cole, who cost Chris Jericho a match earlier this week on Dynamite. Chris responded by challenging Cole to an unsanctioned match at the PPV and tearing up the legal document that bans Cole from entering the same building as him. That prompted Cole to enter the building and get into a pull-apart brawl with the Demo God:
With legal agreements now null and void, @adamcolepro makes a beeline for @IAmJericho!— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) May 19, 2023

Finally we have The Hardys and Brother Zay, who were ambushed by Ethan Page and The Gunns. Zay’s throat was Pillmanized; Ethan said Zay will never be able to moan again. Their trios match was made official for Double or Nothing. If Matt’s side wins, he will control Ethan Page’s contract.
