Double or Nothing is one of the most anticipated shows in wrestling and will formally invite fans to see what the new All Elite Wrestling promotion will bring to the landscape.

The roster of All Elite Wrestling features some of the best workers in the business and the matches on the Double or Nothing card reflect that. Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho will revisit their rivalry from New Japan Pro Wrestling, while The Young Bucks will take on the Lucha Brothers for the AAA Tag Team Championships.

And despite the snafu regarding the match between Adam Hangman Page and PAC, AEW announced the first champion will be crowned at a later date. The winner of the Casino Battle Royal will take on the winner of Omega and Jericho.

There are nine confirmed matches on the Double or Nothing card, with many of the stories established previously on the Being the Elite and "Road to" webseries. Here's a rundown of all the bouts you'll find on this Saturday's show.

Note: We'll update this section with any more matches added before the show goes live.

CASINO BATTLE ROYAL

The pre-show will include a huge over the top battle royal. There will be 21 wrestlers who will fight for a future championship opportunity.

BEST FRIENDS VS ANGELICO AND JACK EVANS

Trent Beretta and Chuck Taylor, "The Best Friends" were also scheduled for the battle royal but after appearing in the "Over the Budget" Battle Royal at last year's All In the tag team didn't want to be relegated to the pre-show again.

After some creative politicking and reverse psychology, Best Friends got a tag team match of their own against Angelico and Jack Evans.

CODY VS DUSTIN

A match years in the making, real-life brothers Cody and Dustin Rhodes will square off for the first time at Double or Nothing. While their WWE careers didn't lead to a one-on-one match, they can now perform in what may be Dustin's last match as a wrestler.

KENNY OMEGA VS CHRIS JERICHO

Jericho, despite his loss to Kenny in NJPW, feels he's the reason why AEW is making waves.

The former WWE Champion brings his star power to Double or Nothing in a rematch with Kenny. The two have run into each other at independent shows around the world, as well as at the official press conference. The bad blood between these two is still fresh.
