All-Star 8-Man Scramble Match
Chris Jericho vs. Lance Archer vs. Brian Cage vs. Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Wardlow vs. Hook vs. ??? vs. ???

AEW has rarely dipped into the scramble match; really, it’s something you’re more likely to see (or not see, statistically speaking) on ROH. A lot of these guys are not exactly the people you think of for a traditional indie-style scramble but as long as you can keep the action fast and a little dumb, you can make this into a fun little outing. Given that this was supposed to be a different match beforehand, it’d make sense to pick one of the guys in the original Meat Match, but given who those four are, I’m going to stick with the guy with his own signal to win, HOOK. Prediction: Hook

FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) vs. Blackpool Combat Club (Claudio Castagnoli & Jon Moxley)

This is an AEW PPV match that is practically begging for a last-minute stipulation addition via Twitter or the like, as they so enjoy doing. Given the participants, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it become a 2-out-of-3-falls affair, or potentially something more violent like a Street Fight. Hell, given how flippantly we brought back TEXAS DEATH recently, I’m not ruling out a Dog Collar stip, either. Whatever the case, this will likely deliver in-ring as we continue this weird extension of the BCC/CMLL beef, in what may be Cash Wheeler’s last major outing, depending on his court case. For that reason, and given that they are ostensibly the babyfaces, I’ll go with FTR for the win. Prediction: FTR

AEW TNT Title Match
Christian Cage (c) vs. Daniel Garcia

Will Young: I’m calling this to be the sleeper match of the card. Christian Cage is riding huge waves of momentum and goodwill after a terrific 2023, while Garcia is building his own momentum in his seemingly perpetual mid-card diamond-in-the-rough act. Garcia is working as an underdog babyface and will likely mesh well with uber-heel Cage, but the result of this is a bit harder to parse out. I’ll call a deserved title win for Garcia here but I won’t be surprised if the feud doesn’t end here, regardless. I certainly can’t wait to see the fireworks. Prediction: Daniel Garcia




Konosuke Takeshita vs. Will Ospreay

Speaking of fireworks, Will Ospreay makes his contracted debut in AEW with something that will definitely be causing a great deal of excitement amongst AEW fans. Ospreay is not my favorite guy to watch, especially given his elevated status today, but he and the underrated Takeshita have the chance to make some magic together. I expect there will be a sequence or two that stretches credibility along the way but they’ll surely throw a few wild bombs in there that will at least be spectacular to see. As for the winner, can’t go wrong picking the golden goose himself, Ospreay, for the W. Prediction: Will Ospreay

AEW Continental Title / NJPW STRONG Openweight Title / ROH World Title Match
Eddie Kingston (c) vs. Bryan Danielson

Eddie Kingston, like Bret Hart before him, is greedy for respect and he faces the closest modern-day analogue to The Hitman in Bryan Danielson. Eddie putting his titles on the line against Danielson in exchange for a show of respect from the man who has refused to give him his due is a very intriguing story to me and I’ll be interested in where this goes, regardless of the result. I normally don’t count on picking Eddie Kingston to win but, given his status as champion and a bit more of a track record of wins in the past couple of months, I’ll pick Eddie for the win and the handshake from the American Dragon. Prediction: Eddie Kingston

AEW Women’s World Title Match
Toni Storm (w/Luther & Mariah May) (c) vs. Deonna Purrazzo

I’m pleased to see Deonna Purrazzo entering AEW with a distinct amount of fanfare and a dedicated storyline to the title, as she’s a great wrestler who deserves the spotlight. Now, she finds herself against Timeless Toni Storm, which means that there will be a certain amount of chicanery and foolishness expected in the proceedings, so it will be interesting to see how Deonna fares in putting together a fun, compelling match against someone with a much more overpowering gimmick than her. A bit of a tough call for the winner but I’ll say that Toni retains, just hopefully not at the expense of any heat for Purrazzo. Prediction: Toni Storm

AEW International Title Match
Orange Cassidy (c) vs. Roderick Strong

Damn, you wanna talk about anticipated matches? Sure, the ongoing story of OC contending with the limp Undisputed Kingdom has been fairly nothing for the past little bit, but it’s all been leading up to two of the best bell-to-bell workers in the entire company getting to let loose on PPV. I cannot wait to see these two put on some magic in the ring; aside from Cage/Garcia, this is my most anticipated night match. I’ll go with Strong for the title win, just to get this dumb stable any semblance of heat. Prediction: Roderick Strong

AEW World Title Three-Way Match
Samoa Joe (c) vs. Adam Page vs. Swerve Strickland

While I’d prefer to see Joe in singles matches with both of these guys, a three-way is still certainly intriguing and will likely lead to some entertaining interactions. I imagine that Hangman Page will continue to drift further down the road to a heel turn, while Swerve will get his shots in and likely come the closest to unseating Joe. However, in this particular scenario, I don’t imagine that it’s time to crown (or re-crown) either of the challengers, so I say Joe retains here to fight Swerve and/or Hanger (and/or HOOK) another day. Prediction: Samoa Joe




AEW World Tag Team Title Tornado Match
Darby Allin & Sting (c) vs. The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson)

This will certainly be a happening. AEW has rarely, if ever, been in the position to give a send-off to a legend as respected as Sting, so all eyes will be on how they choose to do it here. The result is hardly in question, as Sting has made no bones about not originally wanting a championship of any kind and I’m sure he’ll be more than happy to do the honors for the EVPs, but I do hope that we get one last fix of late-career brawlin’ Sting, which has consistently been one of the best parts of any card he has been on in the past couple of years. It’ll be sad to see him go, but at least this time, it’s on his own terms and, hopefully, with one last big bang. On Sunday, it’s showtime for the last time. Prediction: The Young Bucks
