The AEW Double Or Nothing 2020 Buy-In has begun! We’ve got a nice stage setup, the same chips from last year joined by a giant hand of cards and some slot machines. Taz and Excalibur are our pre-show team and they do a quick card rundown. We see a video of Tony Schiavone interviewing Jake Roberts as Lance Archer warms up by hitting a tire with a sledgehammer. They’re in some kinda dilapidated building. Tony asks Jake if Lance is ready and Jake asks him, tells him to knock the sh*t out of him. Archer responds by demolishing a bathroom, shattering porcelain. We then move on to our Buy-In match, which I would hope gets a significant amount of time… Private Party go up against Best Friends with a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Championships on the line! The two face teams shake hands before the bell.

Afterwards Tony Schiavone talks to Arn Anderson about the upcoming match between Cody and Lance Archer. Anderson disparages Archer attacking toilets with a sledgehammer, says toilets don’t hit back, Cody does. Starts talking about what-ifs. Jake could DDT Arn, Arn could DDT Jake or Spinebuster Jake! Mike Tyson might decide to knock out the both of them, what are they gonna do about it? Tony says he wouldn’t be able to stop it. Arn says on the outside it’s free reign but the match will be decided on the inside like it should be. Says you might think Cody has no chance but you’d be forgetting about guts and tenacity. Leadership is about pulling that out of you. Cody’s father’s legacy will live on forever but tonight starts Cody’s legacy. He’s gotta win the big one, he says tonight he’s gonna win the big one and Arn has no reason to doubthim.
