AEW Double or Nothing

JKJ reps the Thirteen | 10 brand with some AEW Double Or Nothing 2020 predictions!

Well, it’s that time again. AEW come to us live for their first live PPV during COVID19 which ultimately means that no fans will be in attendance for this show. How will AEW produce this? AEW have done a terrific job up to now as they recorded a large batch of weekly shows, using talent at ringside to create an atmosphere. Will this still be the case especially as the majority of ‘ringside’ talent will be performing live. It will be very interesting indeed and I am sure that the team will smash it just like they have week in and week it since day one.

On to my preview and predictions. No specific match order.

Pre-Show: Private Party vs Best Friends – Number 1 contenders match.

This is where the AEW ranking system really works favourably, these 2 teams are ranked 1 & 2 next to the champions and rightfully so this match should happen, has there been much build? Absolutely not! Is the build needed for the top 2 ranked teams? Nope!

I would say that the best friends have the biggest momentum going in, simply based on TV time, but they are so over right now and thats why I think that Private Party will score somewhat of an upset here. A little more spotlight on private party would be great and who doesn’t want to see Omega & Page vs Private Party?!

Winners: Private Party

Shawn Spears vs Dustin Rhodes

A late addition to the card and a welcome addition! 2 top talented individuals here. Dustin has had a MOTY candidate with Cody in the past 12 months and Spears had a very high profile match vs Cody last August. This is a match that both can sink their teeth in too. Spears could do with a few more high profile wins and thats why I’m picking him to win here. I can see a shock QT Marshall heel turn cost Dustin the match and join an allegiance with Spears and Tully. QT has been great as he has been visiting DDP, learning about what he needs to do and that is become a badass! That will happen here.

Winner: Shawn Spears

MJF vs Jungle Boy

Under the assumption that Luchasaurus will not be at ringside either due to the casino ladder match opening the show or being later leaves me assuming that Marko Stunt will be at ringside as will Wardlow. This will be another showcase for Jungle Boy who Is very exciting and won’t lose momentum with defeat but lets make no mistake in saying that MJF is a star! He is money on the mic and owns the squared circle. Wardlow will be involved meaning that a screwy finish will hand MJF the win and Jungle Boy will continue to grow. This will be an exciting match. Enjoy!

Winner: MJF

Casino Ladder Match: Darby Allin vs Colt Cabana vs Orange Cassidy vs Rey Fenix vs Scorpio Sky vs Kip Sabian vs Frankie Kazarian vs Luchasaurus vs TBA

WOW! Here is one of those ladder matches that when you just see the participants, you just know that the word ‘Epic’ will be used by everyone throughout the social media world and thats without the added surprise ninth entrant? Who will It be? The wrestling world is discussing either Miro (Rusev) or EC3…. It could be any number of people. I’m going to pick Miro. I did want to see PAC but flights in and out of the UK are just not happening so I’m sticking my neck on the line and am predicting that AEW have scooped a huge star and fair play, he deserves to shine. Will Miro walk out with a no1 contenders opportunity? Yes, yes indeed he will.
Expect a crazy spot fest which we can all relax and enjoy!

Winner: Miro

Dr. Britt Baker vs Kris Statlander

For me this match is the toughest match on the card to call because both are high in the female rankings and both are thriving. Who has more to lose?! Statlander for sure, Britt has had a best selling tee and is kicking ass in this heel role plus if Shida wins the title later in the night I don’t want to see Britt vs Shida just yet as that match is serious money and could easily wait a few months longer. Expect Statlander to escape the mandible claw with some freaky alien-like stuff but its super cool either way!

Winner: Kris Statlander

AEW Womans Championship: Nyla Rose (c) vs Hikaru Shida

Nyla Rose is a fantastic choice for woman’s champion, but Shida is the star that they need to elevate this title more than it has been. Shida is great on her social media platforms and will get more of the Japanese eyes on the product. Rose is beatable which we have seen in the past and she will be dethroned here. Plenty of near falls and its no DQ which usually can give the heel an advantage but Shida will find a way to use select weapons to win this hard hitting title match.

Winner: New Champion Hikaru Shida

Tournament Final, AEW TNT Championship: Cody (w/Arn Anderson & Brandi Rhodes) vs Lance Archer (w/ Jake Roberts)

This match, along with the Stadium Stampede match have had the biggest build and this is my most anticipated match. Lance Archer has come from a dominant end to his NJPW days (very strong G1 last year) and has not stopped since going AEW. Jake Roberts has voiced some fantastic recorded segments which have added to the build of this match. Regardless of the winner, this could easily steal the show. I think lance Archer comes out on top with Cody set to take a little bit of time off after this match as he has featured in some high profile matches since AEW debuted. This will only be until crowds can slowly return or until September comes around for All Out.

Winner: Lance Archer

Stadium Stampede: The Elite & Matt Hardy vs The Inner Circle

How can you sum up the word crazy? This is the match that will define that word for you. This is going to go everywhere and bodies will be destroyed. Jake Hager is the individual that will make the difference here and hopefully with a standout performance from Ortiz & Santana, who for me, need to show a little more, but of course, no rush. I think that there will be multiple camera angles and teams divided all across…enter….THE REVOLT who will brutally attack the Young bucks, taking them out of the equation, thus leaving The Elite handicapped along The Inner Circle to win and continue dominance. There will be an ELITE revenge one day, but for now, The Heels win.

Winners: The Inner Circle

AEW World Heavyweight Championship: Jon Moxley (c) vs Mr Brodie Lee

Another really tough call here, Mr Brodie Lee is the number one contender after squashing ‘enhancement’ talent and then the attack on Moxley. It is no doubt that The Dark Order has grown in stature since his arrival but is he seen as the ‘face’ of the company yet? For me not yet. Moxley is a fighter and a warrior and will not go down fighting. Im not a huge fan of DQs in main event title matches (this might not main event) but this may be a match where Moxley gets DQd for using a weapon on Dark order members and swinging at Brodie. Moxley retains and Brodie doesn’t loose any steam. An exciting match is on the cards that’s for sure.

Winner: Brodie Lee via DQ, Moxley retains

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

Published

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass



Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed



The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!

Published

on

Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
