AEW Double or Nothing Injury Impact Odds Currently at One in Three

AEW Double or Nothing happens this Saturday, May 23rd, but in a string of incredibly bad luck, three wrestlers scheduled for the show were injured during Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite. However, according to a backstage report, at least two of the wrestlers involved will be able to compete at the PPV on Saturday. One of the matches, however, is in question.

Dave Meltzer writes in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Rey Fenix injured his hip during the springboard dive to the outside that missed its intended targets. However, Meltzer notes that Fenix left under his own power and is expected to wrestle in the Casino Ladder Match at AEW Double or Nothing, where he'll have plenty more opportunities to injure himself again.

Meltzer also says that Matt Jackson injured his rip diving off the stands during the ending to Dynamite, where the Young Bucks made their return to save Kenny Omega from a beatdown by the Inner Circle in the endzone of the Jacksonville Jaguars football stadium. However, Meltzer says that Jackson will be able to compete in the Stadium Stampede match at AEW Double or Nothing and that the injury could be minor, such as a bruised rib.

Unfortunately, it's the match between Britt Baker and Kris Statlander that might not happen, as Baker was injured when Statlander and Hikaru Shida tossed AEW Women's Champion Nyla Rose onto Baker's leg. Baker's leg was bent, which could have caused an injury to her knee. Doctors were shown attending to the injury during the four-way match on Dynamite. Meltzer said the extent of Baker's injuries is currently unknown.

AEW Double or Nothing takes place this Saturday at 8 PM Eastern Time, with the Buy-In pre-show airing at 7 PM. The show can be purchased on PPV, or via B/R Live in the United States or Fite TV internationally.
