The card for AEW’s Double or Nothing III, a mainstream media flap over a strange John Cena apology in Mandarin and another announcer shake-up amidst declining WWE television ratings are three of the top stories making news this week In This Corner. Wrestling fans can also “Have A Nice Day” this Sunday by tuning in to A and E’s biography on our good friend and all-around nice guy, Hardcore Legend Mick Foley.
This year’s version of Double or Nothing at Daily’s Place and the adjacent TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville is headlined by a Stadium Stampede match between the company’s two leading factions, the Inner Circle captained by Chris Jericho and the Pinnacle headed up by MJF. Kenny Omega is scheduled to defend the company’s heavyweight title in a three-way with challengers PAC and Orange Cassidy. The Young Bucks will put the tag titles on the line against Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston. Britt Baker tries to take the women’s belt from Hikaru Shida.
