You can see the full 9th episode of "Road to Double Or Nothing" above. It also features appearances by WWE Hall of Famers Scott Hall and Diamond Dallas Page, Eric Bischoff, Tony Schiavone, the Starrcast crew, and more.
This Jericho vs. Omega match will be a rematch from New Japan Pro Wrestling's Wrestle Kingdom 12 event in 2017. That event saw Omega retain his IWGP United States Heavyweight Title over Jericho in a No DQ match.
The episode above features Omega, who is also one of the Executive Vice Presidents of AEW, cut a promo on Jericho to reveal their match as the main event. Omega, speaking from the recent Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, said Jericho couldn't beat him with the No DQ stipulation before, and he won't be able to beat him this time.
"So, will I thank Chris Jericho if he beats me at Double Or Nothing? Isn't that the big question? We all owe him a big thank you, don't we? We wouldn't be successful without you, Chris," Omega joked. "Maybe I do owe ya a proper thanks, but I'll tell you what, you're not going to get it from me. Unless you beat me. If you can. Yeah, I'll thank you, why not? That's the problem Chris. You're going to have to beat me first. You couldn't get the job done before, what makes you think now, without a hardcore stipulation, without you being able to use weapons, without you being able to do whatever the hell you want, that you can actually beat me? I don't know, but I am eagerly awaiting your response, and I'm eagerly awaiting to meet you again, at Double Or Nothing in the main event."
