The Casino Ladder Match kicked off this year’s AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view. The match featured Darby Allin, Colt Cabana, Orange Cassidy, Joey Janela, Scorpio Sky, Kip Sabian, Frankie Kazarian, Luchasaurus and a mystery entrant.
Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian fought for the first 2 minutes of the match. Kip Sabian entered the match and he took advantage of the No DQ rule but having Jimmy Havoc help him beat up Kaz and Sky. There was a scary spot where Havoc attempted something off the top and he missed and fell and hit the back of his head on a ladder. Darby Allin was the next entrant and he took out everyone since he was the fresh one in the match. Allin did an insane spot where he jumped off the top of the ladder with his skateboard under him. The goal was to go through Kazarian through a table but Kaz moved out of the way and Allin crashed through the ladder.
Orange Cassidy was the next person in the match. Cassidy went to the announcers to ask them how to win this match. Colt Cabana was the next person in the match as Cassidy tried to figure out how to set up a ladder in the ring. Joey Janela was the seventh entrant and he took everyone out before trying to climb the ladder to grab the chip. Janela was taken out by a chair shot from Scorpio Sky. Luchasaurus was the eighth entrant. He took everyone out and tossed Sabian onto a pile at ringside. Luchasaurus also chokeslammed Kazarian onto a ladder bridge in the corner of the ring. Allin was back up and he hit a Code Red off the middle rope onto Luchasaurus but Allin was still favoring his knee.
The ninth entrant was Brian Cage. He was accompanied by Taz and the announcers wondered if Taz was his coach or manager. Cage destroyed everyone in the match and he climbed the ladder with Cassidy on his back as the other wrestlers got back in the ring. It took everyone to pull Cage off the ladder. Cage was finally taken out of the action with a ladder and steel post to the face and then he was buried by chairs and the chips that were used as props.
Cassidy was close to grabbing the chip that was hanging above the ladder but Havoc interfered. Best Friends ran in to help Cassidy. Marko Stunt appeared in the match to help out Luchasaurus. Janela then hit a Death Valley Driver on Cassidy onto the chip at ringside that had Cage underneath it. Sky and Taz fought on top of the ladder but were pushed off by Luchasaurus. Cage was able to power out of the items that were on him and he got back into the match and he went back-and-forth with Luchasaurus in an excellent offensive exchange. Cage finally got the upperhand by powerbombing Luchasaurus into a ladder in the corner of the ring. Taz appeared again to shout instructions to Cage on his assault on Allin. Cage picked up a ladder with Allin on it and then tossed it with Darby onto the floor at ringside.
Cage climbed the ladder to grab the chip. He will get a future title shot.
