Current Date Reportedly Planned for AEW Double or Nothing 2023

AEW reportedly currently is planning for this year’s Double or Nothing 2023 event to take place on May 28th, according to Wrestlenomics.

Brandon Thurston reported that his sources stated that AEW officials currently have plans for this year’s event to remain on Memorial Day weekend similar to AEW’s previous Double or Nothing events.

Thurston reported that this event is also currently planned to take place the day after WWE’s own currently planned event for that weekend.

Fuego Del Sol Suffers Foot Injury

Fuego Del Sol announced on Twitter that he recently suffered a foot injury. Del Sol also stated that he will be undergoing a medical scan today to officially diagnose his injury and could be out of action for at least the next five to six weeks if no ligament damage is found and three months if damage is found.

Okay… so last Sunday while in Sacramento a freak accident happened after I hit a drop kick where another guy fell on top of my right foot. Initially I thought it was broken, as I got up I felt sharp pain shoot up my foot and realized it was incredibly painful to put any weight on the toe of my foot. After assessing the situation I changed some things around and managed to finish the match and when I got to the back the it had already swollen up pretty bad.

After flying home and then managing to drive two hours home (somehow), I got it x-rayed and found out I actually dislocated it but somewhere in finishing the match I unknowingly popped it back in. There is a small fracture at the bottom of my big toe but they said I’m lucky it wasn’t worse. Not in the clear yet though because now I must get a cat scan on my foot tomorrow to determine if there is any ligament damage, if there is no damage I’m looking at a 5 to 6 week recovery, but if there is damage then it could be up to three months. I’m devastated that I cannot fully fulfill my AEW obligations or obligations to Rugged Pro in Omaha this weekend, and to VIP Wrestling on 3/10 however I plan to still appear at both shows in some capacity. Needing good vibes sent my way so I don’t have to miss out on any more of my obligations. I’m a workhorse and am very good at compartmentalizing and working around this small injury. I’ll still be in the gym as well as doing seminars, posting content, and streaming consistently. A boot and some crutches won’t slow me down or dampen my positivity. I’ll keep you all updated on my scan results. (Keep your opinions on my un-pedicured feet to yourselves –)

Powerhouse Hobbs on Hoping to be Featured More on AEW TV Shows

A recent episode of the Busted Open Radio podcast featured Powerhouse Hobbs as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Hobbs’ thoughts on his current hope to be featured more often on AEW Dynamite and Rampage shows.

“Any opportunity you get, you have to make some noise, whether its on Dark, Elevation, Dynamite, or Rampage. Me, personally, I would love to be featured more on Dynamite and Rampage. Right now, I’m getting opportunities on Elevation, and it’s speaking for itself. The cream rises to the top.”

Hobbs also gave his thoughts on who from AEW’s locker room he is currently the most interested in having a match against.

“I like to fight. One is Jon Moxley and the other is Eddie Kingston. Just a straight out brawl. Pull no punches, no hurricanranas, no dive outs, just fisticuffs.”
