PAC vs. Orange Cassidy ended in a double count-out on tonight’s AEW Dynamite in a Number One Contender Match.
Don Callis and Omega got involved in the match, causing a double count-out after Omega hit PAC with the title. Cassidy was also down due to the beat PAC was currently giving him.
Afterwards, AEW President Tony Khan told Tony Schiavone to announce both PAC and Cassidy will face Omega for the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing on May 30.
Also announced for the PPV is a Casino Battle Royale with the winner receiving a future title shot. Christian Cage and Matt Sydal both revealed they are in that bout.
Cody Rhodes took to the microphone during tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, where he called out Anthony Ogogo and challenged him to a match at AEW Double or Nothing.
In a message to Ogogo, Rhodes said that he knows that patriotism is out of style, but he’s always been proud to be an American. On the flip side, Ogogo has done nothing but verbally buried the United States with vitriol. Rhodes elaborated by discussing the ideals of the American Dream before he delved into his own children. Rhodes stated that his kids won’t shun any aspect of their identities, and he wants to show them that their father didn’t like down for anyone.
At Double or Nothing, Rhodes said that the two will face off, but he made it clear that Ogogo won’t be facing “The American Nightmare.” Instead, he’ll be in the ring with “The American Dream.”
