At the inaugural All Elite Wrestling (AEW) pay-per-view, DOUBLE OR NOTHING, on Saturday night, Bret “The Hitman” Hart made a surprise appearance.
The two-time WWE Hall Of Famer came out for an in-ring segment late in the show that saw him unveil the first-ever AEW World Championship belt.
Hart announced that the first-ever AEW World Champion will be crowned when the vacant title match takes place in a couple of months.
“Hangman” Adam Page won the 21-Man Casino Battle Royale during the “Buy-In” pre-show at Saturday night’s PPV, earning a spot in the first-ever AEW World Championship match.
The other spot in the match was determined at the conclusion of the DOUBLE OR NOTHING PPV, as Chris Jericho defeated Kenny Omega in the “ALPHA vs. OMEGA 2” main event to earn the other spot in the future AEW World Championship bout.
