The second edition of AEW Double or Nothing took place last night at Daily’s Place and TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. On an eventful show featuring Mike Tyson, the women’s division was a highlight.
This was actually the strongest showing from the company as both matches featuring women delivered. As a matter of fact, this was the first time that there were two singles women’s matches on an AEW pay-per-view card.
The company’s women’s division has been the source of much criticism since last year. So, it was refreshing to see them do so well last night.
Penelope Ford stepped in for Britt Baker in a surprisingly entertaining match where Kris Statlander proved once again that she was a great signing.
In other news, we have a new AEW Women’s World Champion. Hikaru Shida defeated Nyla Rose in one of the best matches of the night to finally ascend to the top of the division.
Overall, this was a fun show and a much-needed change of pace following the tragic news that Hana Kimura passed away on Friday night. Still, there was a lot to unpack afterwards. There are some lingering questions about the future of AEW’s women’s division.
So, these are three takeaways from AEW Double or Nothing 2020.
