Thehe biggest match of the night is between Riho and Nyla Rose to become the first AEW Women's Champion.

"All Elite Wrestling is a talent-forward, fan-first league whose inclusive approach to creating high-quality, athletic wrestling competition is already making waves with fans and attracting top-tier wrestlers," said Michael Quigley, executive vice president, commercial operations, content strategist and monetization expert for TBS and TNT in a press release last May. "It is high-adrenaline, gripping entertainment and we can't wait to bring it to fans everywhere with this game-changing new business."

"Wrestling fans have wanted - and needed - something different, authentic and better for far too long," said Tony Khan in a press release. "AEW is answering the call. AEW is about more than wrestling, it's about a movement fueled by wrestling fans who have been underserved and perhaps even disappointed by what the industry has produced in recent years. AEW is rising to the occasion with Double or Nothing and today taking it a step further by partnering with WarnerMedia, which is as committed as we are to making wrestling fans the one and only priority. With WarneMedia, AEW is poised globally to redefine wrestling as we know it today."
