Right now in All Elite Wrestling (AEW), The Young Bucks have finally hit their stride. After months of being unclear on if they are faces or heels, and merely having their usual matches, they finally turned heel once again. Anyone who has watched The Young Bucks for a while instantly knew that this meant business was going to pick up. Their following two matches were damn near perfect, with their defense against Death Triangle getting 5 stars from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. However, is this enough to put them in the main event of the coming PPV, Double or Nothing?
The Young Bucks Are On The Rise As Heels, And Have A Hot Feud With Eddie Kingston & Jon Moxley
Right now, The Young Bucks have two potentially huge opponents in place for Double or Nothing. First up is Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels of SCU. SCU were on a losing streak, so said their next loss will be the end of their tag team. This lit a fire underneath both men, and everyone knew it would eventually lead them to a clash with The Young Bucks over the AEW World Tag Team Championship.
And that’s not the only hot storyline The Bucks have going for them into Double or Nothing. They are also potentially set up for a tag team match with Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston, two long time friends who are waging war against The Elite. It was attacking Moxley that completed their heel turn, and nowadays if you have an issue with Moxley? You have an issue with Eddie Kingston.
Either of those matches are potentially better main events than whatever can be thrown together in a month with Kenny Omega. Their best bet is a rushed angle with Eddie Kingston or even Brian Cage, but with only a month before Double Or Nothing? It might be underwhelming.
The AEW World Championship Isn’t Always The Main Event Of PPV’s
There is also an expectation with wrestling fans that the world championship should always be in the main event of a PPV. However, while AEW has generally done this, there have been two exceptions. The first was at Full Gear 2019, when Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega was in the main event over Chris Jericho vs. Cody Rhodes for the AEW World Championship.
Second was at Double Or Nothing 2020, when Stadium Stampede was the main event over Jon Moxley vs. Brodie Lee. These are two examples of the bigger match being the main event, and when Double Or Nothing 2021 comes around? We might very well have a strong argument that The Young Bucks match will be bigger.
