Amell and Rhodes have crossed paths before during Rhodes time in WWE, where he faced off against Amell during his time as Stardust. Since then Cody has reinvented himself yet again, and this time leads the Bullet Club stable on Amell's side. Amell posted to social media regarding the upcoming match, crediting a big part of his determination to not letting Rhodes down.
"Becoming friends with @CodyRhodes over the past few years has been an exceptional experience. I'm going to have a great match at All In for a variety of reasons. The main one? I don't want to let him down."

His opponent Christopher Daniels made sure to point out that none of Amell's Bullet Club friends would be there to help him, and he had a few other things to say as well.
"Stephen Amell...the trash talking barefoot deadlifting beard wearing son of a gun," Daniels said. "Stephen, I thought you played an archer on television, how could you miss the mark about Christopher Daniels and All-In as much as you did. I mean, I don't need anybody's rub to get in All-In...and jealous? Of you? No no no, I'm not jealous of you or your success or chosen profession, I'm in awe of you. I respect what you do and I respect it so much that when I tried to enter your world I came in through the front door on the ground level."
