Backstage News On The Stadium Stampede Match Production – AEW concluded last night’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view with the Stadium Stampede match, but much of the action did not take place in front of live fans in Daily’s Place.
The match eventually made its was to the live crowd, but they were previously watching on screens along with the rest of the fans at home.
Fightful Select reports most of the filming took place on Thursday with additional footage being recorded on Friday. The editing process was put over as it was a quick turnaround for how much footage they got. It was added that those in AEW were happy with how it came across and how the live element was integrated.

During his media scrum, Chris Jericho mentioned that AEW brought in one of the stunt coordinators who worked on the John Wick movies to help them with some of the fight scenes to make them a little bit more like an action movie.
“I just think because, just the fact that we did in front of our first full house in, sixteen months, fourteen months, whatever it’s been, that made it very monumental for everybody,” Jericho said. “So I think it was a victory, no matter what the stats and the matches were. I think for us, putting together Stadium Stampede to challenge last year’s, which so so critically acclaimed, so well done. But the difference is last year we were kind of in an uncertain world. We didn’t know what to expect and everybody was kind of really nervous and scared. So we wanted to do something that was more fun for people to have a diversion from all the weird stuff that was going on. This year was a little bit more of an action movie, because it was much more serious of an angle and a story.
“So I think for me, after spending the last four days filming it and doing a lot of editing and production work on it, just watching it from behind the curtain and hearing everybody’s reaction to it, that’s when you know that it’s good. And then also too, the element that we ended up doing it live, finishing it live, I don’t think anybody expected that. And that was really a cool moment too, where you see kind of the ripple effect of people looking up and then everyone starts looking and seeing that reaction. Hearing those reactions was something that was sorely missed, and I think we forgot how important those reactions are. But now that they’re back, it’s like ‘man this is what wrestling’s all about.’”
As noted, The Inner Circle defeated The Pinnacle. At last year’s show, The Inner Circle lost to The Elite and that Stadium Stampede match was completely filmed in advance.
