Hikaru Shida is the longest reigning champion in AEW history.
Britt Baker has a level of intensity that lands her bloody face on top-selling t-shirts.

AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
This might very well be the biggest match in the history of the AEW women’s division. Hikaru Shida has reigned supreme over the women’s ranking for well over a year at this point. Woman after woman, she has come out victorious and for good reason. Shida seems unbeatable and will not go down without a fight. Shida wouldn’t be the history-making and record-breaking champion that she is if she didn’t have the tenacity, skill and, intestinal fortitude to back it all up. However, put in front of her might be her toughest test to date.
Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. called the AEW Ranking System a formality. Simply put, she did not believe in it. Baker felt like she was the number one contender for a long time now. As she stated, she will play the game and climb to the top of the rankings to rightfully challenge the champion and sure enough, she made good on her promise to do exactly that. Baker has bulldozed her way through anyone and everyone who dared stand toe to toe with her. The doctor will not stop until she has the AEW Women’s World Championship around her waist. Two of AEW’s biggest hitters collide. Keep your eyes open, folks. This might very well be the match that steals the show come Sunday night.
Prediction: Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.
Brothers vs Brothers
One side is actual brothers, the other side are really close friends.

AEW World Tag Team Championship Match: The Young Bucks (c) vs. Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston
Calling this rivalry “personal” is an understatement. The Young Bucks have been a constant destructive presence for Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston for far too long. The challengers wish that cycle to end Sunday night. Since the night Matt and Nick Jackson crossed over to the dark side, the brothers have made it their mission to make Kingston and Mox’s lives hell. If anything is known about the challengers, it’s that they don’t take anything laying down. Whatever the Bucks threw at them, Moxley and Kingston threw it back even harder.
Now, the challengers aren’t only out for blood but gold as well. The stakes have never been higher. Matt and Nick Jackson have done anything and everything to keep their titles for this long. However, they might have bitten off more than they can chew. The AEW World Tag Team Champions might be in too deep this time with two of the most rabid competitors AEW has to offer.
Prediction: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston
I was holding out hope this match would have been called "Stadium Stampede 2: Electric Boogaloo" but oh well… It's still going to be awesome!#AEWDON is this Sunday May 30th at 8pm ET!

Stadium Stampede: The Inner Circle vs. The Pinnacle
Who has whose number? That is the question begging to be answered. The rivalry between these two warring factions has reached another level. If you thought Blood and Guts was brutal, wait till you see The Inner Circle fight The Pinnacle in a monumental war called Stadium Stampede. These two units will fight all over Daily’s Place and TIAA Bank Field before the night is over. With that being said, this is not just some ordinary match that The Inner Circle agreed to; their future, as a team, is on the line. MJF and his boys stated that they accept under the condition that if Chris Jericho and his men lose, The Inner Circle is done forever. The OGs of AEW accepted with no hesitation as they only have one thing on their minds: revenge.
Did The Inner Circle make a mistake in hastily agreeing to this stipulation? From day one, It has been MJF’s mission to end The Inner Circle’s run on top. That is the very reason The Pinnacle was created in the first place. Did the master manipulator Maxwell Jacob Friedman, once again, outsmart his former stablemates? If last year’s edition of the match is anything to go by, it will be a chaotic and savage battle. Expect nothing less but an absolute fight as egos and legacies are on the line. It’s The Pinnacle versus The Inner Circle in Stadium Stampede! Who will come out on top?
Prediction: The Inner Circle
