God, I hope not. Add a few minutes to the Stadium Stampede match and a few minutes to maybe the Ladder match, MJF/Jungle Boy, and the World title match, anything but Spears/Dustin.Thought they'd have announced Penelope Ford as a replacement by now. By all accounts, Britt will blatantly not be able to compete, so Penelope would be the obvious choice considering she has been there in the pandemic and was one of the 4 in the very recent Dynamite match. It would be a shame if they just removed it from the card and an extended Dustin-Spears match was effectively the replacement.
I think JR said it was a one fall match on Dynamite. Meaning that the end of the match will probably see all 10 guys in the double ring hitting their finishers.
Also I'm interested how they'll film the Stampede match - five camera guys each tasked with following a member of one of the sides and potentially split or quartered screen should the wrestlers pair off in various different parts of the arena? Or is the plan to have them just all brawl together around the stadium? Also does the finish have to be in the ring? Do we have the rules for this match? I'd love an elimination format, with pinfalls happening only in the ring. That way they could brawl all over the stadium but need to bring back their opponent to the ring to pin them so you could have somebody sprinting from the top of the stadium trying to get into the ring to make a save to break up a pin. Also a pin elimination would get one side the numbers advantage for an odd number beat down.
Also I don't think Jericho's choice of weapon to carry around should be overlooked. If Sting ever wrestles again it will be in a tag or even multiman match IMO, heavy on storyline. Booker T thinks Sting has a match or two still in him and that he wants to write his own ending and AEW would have a lot of appeal to him. Sting fought against the nWo numbers game his whole career.
I wouldn't totally discount a Sting appearance at the PPV. A fanboy theory of mine has been Tyson was square pegged into the title presentation round hole because something bigger was in store for Moxley vs Brodie and that could have been Sting to make the save against the creepers. This would give fans Moxley vs Sting face vs face match at All Out.
Also the Darby Allin as a young Sting comparison echo's in my memory as well. Was that just an honest comparison off the cuff during commentary from Cody and Schiavone or laying seeds. Darby could bump his ass off for Sting.
AEW is reportedly taping the big Stadium Stampede match today in Jacksonville, Florida.
It was noted on Wrestling Observer Live that the big ten-man match is being taped today so AEW can edit everything to be added to tomorrow's live broadcast of the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view.
Stadium Stampede will likely air as the main event of Saturday's pay-per-view. The match will air from the empty TIAA Bank Field, the home of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, with The Elite (The Young Bucks, AEW World Tag Team Champions Kenny Omega & Hangman Page) and Matt Hardy vs. The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana, Ortiz).
I guess this answers my question as to how it would be filmed. Going to be weird - start in the ring, but then fights all over the stadium? Who is the legal man if it's single fall?It's believed that the Stadium Stampede match will feature a few cameo appearances and some surprises. The wrestlers will have the entire stadium and football field to do battle on, and there will be a ring in the middle of the field, perhaps on the 50 yard line.
Yeah I went and ordered it. Hopefully the stream is decent and I can figure out where to stream it from on PS4 LOL
I guess the one nice thing about B/R Live is that the other AEW PPVs I ordered are still there in one spot and they can still be viewed. Oh well I'm for it now.
I reckon AEW got some ideas from WrestleMania - the graveyard match in particular. Just hoping for no corny music,I guess this answers my question as to how it would be filmed. Going to be weird - start in the ring, but then fights all over the stadium? Who is the legal man if it's single fall?
Cameo's and surprises - this is basically Money in the Bank at Titan Towers isn't it. Did AEW see that and think "we can do better than that" or was this booked and Vince stole the idea saying "Let's do it first and see them try and beat us".
They'll have to tape it after nightfall later tonight if they want to air it as the main event tomorrow.
I'm thinking that's what they're going with, except I think Omega will turn in their tag team title match against The Best Friends as opposed to at DON.What are we predicting for the inevitable turn of Page/Bucks/Omega ? I hope whatever happens Omega will go heel. The bucks I'm indifferent on, if they turn heel with Kenny then that's cool i'm here for it. But I think i'd prefer The Revolt to take out the bucks and for Omega to just turn on Page.
