AEW returns to the Sears Center on Aug. 31 with their next pay-per-view, All Out. The show will serve as the sequel event to the pivotal All In event from 2018, which while not an official AEW event was the precursor to the young company taking off. It will also be AEW's final pay-per-view before beginning its weekly live show on TNT this fall.
The show, which sold out in a matter of minutes after tickets went on sale, will see the grudge match between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley take place as well as crown the first AEW World Champion in a bout between Chris Jericho and "Hangman" Adam Page.
Check out the full card for the event below The list will be updated as more matches are announced.
AEW will crown its first champion at All Out in a battle between one of its young rising stars in Adam Page and one of its biggest names in Chris Jericho. The two combatants both qualified for the match by winning back at Double or Nothing, with Page winning the 22-man Casino Battle Royale and Jericho beating Kenny Omega in the main event.
At Fight for the Fallen Jericho managed to nail Page with a sneak attack while dressed as one of the Dark Order's "Creepers," busting him open with repeated strikes, a Codebreaker and his new Judas Effect finisher. Page got a bit of revenge by attacking Jericho during a promo later in the show, but the two were eventually separated by a group of wrestlers, producers and referees.
If he wins, Jericho will officially be a seven-time world champion.
The man formerly known as Dean Ambrose made his shocking debut in AEW in the closing minutes of Double or Nothing, storming the ring after the main event and attacking both Jericho and Kenny Omega. His brawl with Omega eventually led to the top of the entrance ramp, where Moxley nailed him with his Dirty Deeds finisher on the top of a stack of giant poker chips.
Omega got a bit of revenge the following month when he attacked Moxley at the end of Fyter Fest, but the two have made it clear they want to settle things at All Out.
Moxley is on a bit of a hot streak since leaving WWE, winning both his AEW debut against Joey Janela and his New Japan Pro Wrestling debut over Juice Robinson, winning the IWGP United States Championship.
The rivalry between The Young Bucks, Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr. goes back to the beginning of the year, when Matt and Nick Jackson casually refereed to the two luchadores as the "second best" tag team in the world when they offered for the duo to join All Elite Wrestling. The pair responded by attacking the Bucks at a Double or Nothing fan rally, leading to a surprise match for the AAA World Tag Team Championships at the Rey de Reyes event in March where the Bucks won the titles minutes after the Lucha Bros. had acquired them.
The Bucks then beat the Lucha Bros. at Double or Nothing, but the feud was far from over. The luchadores won back the tag titles at a AAA event in June, followed by The Bucks teaming with Kenny Omega to beat the brothers and Laredo Kid in a six-man tag match at Fyter Fest. After beating SCU at Fight for the Fallen, Pentagon and Fenix grabbed a ladder and challenged the Bucks to a ladder match at the Sears Centre.
After making his AEW debut at Double or Nothing, Shawn Spears made a shocking heel turn at Fyter Fest in June when he nailed Cody Rhodes with an unprotected chair shot right to the head. Rhodes needed 10 staples in the back of his head as a result of the injury, and a feud between the former long-time friends officially began.
AEW president Tony Khan announced in an interview with Steve Austin that AEW would be hosting a tournament to crown the first AEW World Tag Team Champions once their live weekly show on TNT begins this October.
Since then teams have been battling for a first-round bye in the bracket, with The Best Friends beating SCU and Private Party at Fyter Fest and The Dark Order beating Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy and Angelico & Jack Evans at Fight for the Fallen. Trent Beretta and Chuck Taylor will now take on Stu Grayson and Evil Uno at All Out, with the winner earning the bye.
