AEW Double Or Nothing concluded last night and it was a night full of memorable moments and excellent matches. It featured the Owen Hart Cup Foundation Tournament finals and the speech afterwards as well. Tony Khan bought an extra hour for the pay-per-view as well.
The finals of the Owen Hart Cup Foundation Tournament and the subsequent speech by Martha Hart herself was one of the most important parts of the pay-per-view. Fans were astounded when they realized the event was 4 hours 39 minutes long and there is a good reason for that.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Tony Khan bought an extra hour for Double Or Nothing so that Martha Hart could speak for as long as she wanted to.
What happened was, he had two things – First, the Martha Hart segment. He wanted Martha Hart to say as much as she wanted to, so he bought the extra hour of PPV. So he added two more matches to the PPV and the Martha Hart segment which she didn’t know how long it was gonna go because she was not scripted. He bought the extra hour and he went through about 37, 38 minutes of that extra hour.
Adam Cole and Britt Baker were the winners of their respective Owen Hart tournament matches and they were presented with the titles. We can only imagine how this will translate on television. The show was certainly a success and will be remembered fondly by fans for a long time.
