That will change on Saturday, when the company airs its debut show, Double or Nothing, from Las Vegas. The arrival of the promotion marks a new era in American professional wrestling, one in which WWE will finally have to coexist with a second-tier promotion backed by real money, reportedly invested owners, and some of the biggest names outside of WWE. First, some definitions. Aja Kong, who will be on the Double or Nothing card, was there, too. The prospect of AEW using joshi as a sort of analogue for cruiserweight bouts bodes well for how both this match and subsequent storylines will shape up in the new promotion.
