The Elite vs. Blackpool Combat Club in an “Anarchy in the Arena” Match
After months of back and forth, it has finally come to this. These two battling factions look to settle the war as they face off in an Anarchy in the Arena match. The Blackpool Combat Club has wreaked havoc over AEW for the past couple of months, in their quest to takeover the company and mold it in their image.
To give credit where credit is due, these men immediately went after the biggest fish in the pond in the form of The Elite to establish their dominance. Every chance they got, they used the numbers game. Even when the former AEW World Trios Champions enlisted their close friends’ help, like Konosuke Takeshita, the BCC would undercut them and leave them staring up at the lights.
Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks took another major blow as long-time confidant Don Callis would stab them in the back, quite literally, leaving the trio scorned and without anything to hang on to. Until one of their long-time allies would come to their aid. Former AEW World Champion Hangman Page made his return last week to even out the odds and lay out the challenge, which the BCC willingly accepted.
Come this Sunday, it will be nothing but chaos. So, expect nothing less but violence and an all-out brawl. The Blackpool Combat Club isn’t afraid to spill blood, and The Elite is showing no signs of backing down. It’s The Elite versus the BCC; Anarchy in the Arena!
Prediction: Blackpool Combat Club
Jamie Hayter vs. Toni Storm for the AEW Women’s World Championship
Two of the very best the AEW Women’s Division has to offer to collide as Toni Storm invokes her rematch against reigning and defending AEW Women’s World Champion Jamie Hayter. These two have a long-storied history. And for Toni Storm, she hasn’t forgotten the day that Hayter ended her title run. Both Hayter and Storm has no love lost for one another, even getting their respective circles involved in their heated feud.
The Outcasts has made Hayter’s, as well as Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.’s, life a living nightmare. At Double or Nothing, Toni looks to put the nail in the coffin and reclaim the AEW Women’s World Championship she felt she never lost fairly. That said, Jamie is probably the most feared champion this division has ever seen. She has obliterated anyone and everyone who dare stood in her path.
With Storm standing across from her, Hayter will have more of a reason to go out above and beyond and finish the night still champion.
Prediction: Jamie Hayter
Double or Nothing Main Event: “Four Pillars” Four Way for the AEW World Championship
Four of the company’s best, one title. This Sunday night, the competitors expected to carry the company for the next two decades will collide. MJF defends the “Triple B” against Darby Allin, “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, and Sammy Guevara. From virtually day one, these four men were basically linked together and destined to meet one another for a world title match.
As their careers progressed, all became champions and touted as one of the few integral pieces that will steer the ship for the foreseeable future. However, these pillars are much better than anyone could have ever imagined. A match many thought they’ll see 10 years down the line, happens on May 28th, with all men already fully capable of being the top dog of AEW.
That said, MJF will not go down easy. As the “Devil” himself proved, he always has a plan and does absolutely anything to keep the gold around his waist. Unfortunately for him, three of the company’s most fierce competitors are chomping at the bit to dethrone him. And will do everything in their power, and lay it all on the line to walk away with the biggest prize in all of wrestling. It’s a “Four Pillars” Four for the AEW World Championship!
