All Elite Wrestling (AEW) had their big pay-per-view last night, Double or Nothing. This year’s Double or Nothing was arguably one of the best pay-per-view’s AEW has ever put on. It featured many surprises and a lot of very good matches. Consequently, it was hard coming up with the three top moments.

The show featured a lot of fantastic wrestling. From top to bottom, the show was just great. It had a few things that were subpar, but it was few and far between. There were also a few surprises that many people didn’t see coming. For example, Lio Rush and Mark Henry have both joined AEW. The pre-show match between Serena Deeb and Riho was incredible as well.

The main card started off strong, with “Hangman” Adam Page facing “The Machine” Brian Cage. This match was great and the fans made it that much better. The fans were hot all night long. Another good match was Anthony Ogogo and Cody Rhodes. Ogogo looked like a star even in defeat. Darby Allin and Sting also put on an incredible tag match against Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky. Sting showed you’re never too old to do what you love.

These are the top three moments of AEW Double or Nothing 2021.

An honorable mention goes to The Young Bucks defending their AEW Tag Team Championships against Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston. This match was very long, but it started out hot and finished hot. This one had it all and was a great culmination to a fantastic rivalry in AEW.

1. The AEW World Championship Match

The co-main event of last night’s show was Kenny Omega defending his AEW World Championship against Orange Cassidy and Pac in a three-way match. From start to finish, this match was terrific. It helped to further elevate the stars of Cassidy and Pac even in defeat.

Kenny Omega ended up winning the match to retain his AEW World Championship. However, this match showed the world that Orange Cassidy and Pac will be given their turn someday soon. Orange Cassidy is a big fan favorite and is one of the most beloved members of the AEW roster. The same thing can be said for Pac.

2. Dr. Britt Baker is AEW Women’s Champion… FINALLY!

In arguably one of the biggest moments of the night, Dr. Britt Baker finally became the AEW  Women’s World Champion. Fans have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Baker is a fan favorite, despite playing a heel. Take nothing away from Hikaru Shida, however; she did an incredible job as champion. She was the champion for a year for a reason and impressed in all of her matches.

Shida and Baker’s match went almost twenty minutes. It had a few minor hiccups, but the match itself was terrific for both women. Shida and Baker fought their hearts out, but in the end, Baker was victorious. This got one of the biggest pops of the night, as fans have waited for this moment for so long.

3. Stadium Stampede

Arguably my top moment of the night I would have to say was the Stadium Stampede match. The Inner Circle faced off against The Pinnacle in the company’s second-ever Stadium Stampede match. This match was bigger than the last one because if the Inner Circle lost, they would’ve had to disband.

What I loved about this match is that it shows you can have a lot of fun with wrestling. You don’t always need a five-star in-ring technical bout to put on an entertaining match. The Stadium Stampede did just that. The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle put on a great match in a very non-conventional type of way.

The match saw everything, from the Inner Circle make their entrance repelling down the Jaguars scoreboard, to Sammy Guevara chasing down Shawn Spears with a golf cart, to Wardlow and Jake Hager fighting in a freezer, to Proud ‘n’ Powerful fighting FTR in a bar, to a nice cameo by Konnan. The match ended when Sammy Guevara pinned Shawn Spears after hitting the 630 splash.
