Tony Khan Explains Not Putting AEW World Title Match Last At Double Or Nothing 2023



AEW President Tony Khan has explained his decision for the AEW World Championship to not close out the promotion’s Double or Nothing 2023 pay-per-view event.

While MJF retained his title against ‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry, Darby Allin, and Sammy Guevara, the main event of the show saw the Blackpool Combat Club defeat The Elite in an Anarchy In The Arena match.

Speaking on the post-show media scrum, Khan explained his decision-making process and the call for the World Championship match to not main event. He said,

“Well, I always put a lot of thought into it, I’ll go back to the first Double Or Nothing we did in Jacksonville, really both the Double Or Nothings we did in Jacksonville and it was a very similar thought process. You know, the weekend at the show, looking at everything we built – it felt like I’ll go back to the original Stadium Stampede, it felt like the match should go on last. I remember talking to Moxley and Brodie and they had no issue with that, they thought doing a double main event would be great and it was. You know, Moxley and Brodie had a great main event and we went out and had a great double main event with the first-ever Stadium Stampede.

“This year the great four-way match with MJF, Jungle Boy, Darby Allin and Sammy Guevara and in each case, you end it with an amazing multi-person brawl, the Stadium Stampede we did at Jacksonville, really different from what we did with Anarchy in Arena.

“But it felt like going back to that might be the right way to go and I think it worked really well and just like those Double Or Nothing shows ended hot with back-to-back great matches, I thought we did it again tonight as we ended it with hot back to back matches that’s become kind of a theme with Double Or Nothing.

MJF also spoke during the media scrum about not main eventing the show and you can check out his comments here.
