The AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view took place on Sunday, May 28, emanating from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. While there are quite a few memorable moments from the show, that didn’t stop the event from getting criticized for a variety of reasons. Now it appears the AEW roster was criticized for disrespecting the main event of Double Or Nothing.

Last month, the feud between The Elite and The Blackpool Combat Club reached a whole new level after Don Callis betrayed Kenny Omega during Omega’s steel cage match against Jon Moxley on AEW Dynamite.

This was a major theme during The Elite facing off against The Blackpool Combat Club in the Anarchy In The Arena match at AEW Double Or Nothing. The Elite lost the match after Konosuke Takeshita betrayed Kenny Omega, leading The Blackpool Combat Club to pick up the win.

While speaking on The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette criticized the AEW roster for disrespecting the main event of Double Or Nothing by having matches that had no rules – similar to the main event.


“At this point I don’t know which I am more confused by; why anyone would want to watch this match or why anyone would want to do it.

Even if they were going to do a garbage match main event, they didn’t protect it. Every other match tonight was the same thing, no rules, do whatever…so, I was always taught that’s disrespectful to the main event if you do what the main event is going to do.

In this case it’s everything but they didn’t even protect their own garbage wrestling, they let everybody else step on the main event guys, even if this is something that deserves to be stepped on like a cockroach.”

Pat McAfee took a shot at AEW for the Double or Nothing having empty seats. Even NXT dropped couple of shady references about Double or Nothing on this week’s episode as well. Regardless, Double Or Nothing still managed to be a worthwhile event and that’s what matters to Tony Khan.
