Jungle Boy won the Casino Battle Royale at tonight’s Double or Nothing PPV to earn a future AEW World title shot.
Jungle Boy last eliminated Christian Cage to win the match and the future title opportunity.
The story of the battle royale was Matt Hardy and Hardy Family Office members Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen of Private Party working together to clear the ring. The final five participants in the match were Jungle Boy, Christian, Hardy, Kassidy and Quen.
Christian and Jungle Boy teamed up to avoid a Silly String from Quen and Kassidy on the apron, eliminating Private Party in the process.
With Christian, Hardy and Jungle Boy the final three, Hardy implored Christian to work with him in eliminating Jungle Boy .Instead, Christian tossed Hardy.
After Jungle Boy eliminated Christian, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt appeared to celebrate with Jungle Boy. Christian returned to the ring after his elimination to congratulate Jungle Boy.
No date has been set for Jungle Boy’s AEW World title challenge, but a match against the winner of tonight’s Kenny Omega vs. PAC vs. Orange Cassidy match on TV this summer appears likely.
