As the match card for Double Or Nothing on May 30th takes shape, there were several challenges made for the pay-per-view as well. The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Ortiz & Jake Hager) arrived on Dynamite after losing Blood & Guts and sprayed The Pinnacle with champagne until MJF agreed to give them a rematch. MJF stated that a rematch can take place at Double Or Nothing in a Stadium Stampede match but The Inner Circle has to agree to split if they lose. Also, The Young Bucks issued a challenge to Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley for the pay-per-view.

There is going to be a Casino Battle Royale at Double Or Nothing and Christian Cage along with Matt Sydal have declared for it. They are scheduled to go one-on-one next week.

S.C.U.’s (Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels) run as a tag team in AEW came to an end. Their pact between them was that the next time they lost, they would split. They were defeated by The Young Bucks in an AEW World Tag Title match. During the match, Matt Jackson told Daniels, “I’m sorry, I love you” before superkicking him.

Jon Moxley successfully defended the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Title against Yuji Nagata. Nagata was accompanied to the ring by Young Lion Ren Narita. Moxley also came out to “Wild Thing” by The Troggs. Rocky Romero was in attendance for the show and his former partner Trent reacted to seeing Romero shown on-screen on Dynamite.

Scheduled for the 5/19 Dynamite is The Young Bucks defending the AEW World Tag Titles against Varsity Blonds (Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison). Serena Deeb is returning to action to defend the NWA World Women’s Title against Red Velvet along with Anthony Ogogo versus Austin Gunn.
