This Saturday night All Elite Wrestling will put on an event entitled ALL OUT. This event will be the last before they make their TNT Network debut this October. So with that in mind, we will look at three reasons to watch AEW ALL OUT. And check out our reviews of Double or Nothing, Fyter Fest, and Fight for the Fallen.
First-Ever AEW Champion
ALL OUT will see the first-ever All Elite Wrestling Champion crowned. The title match will see the legendary Chris Jericho take on Hangman Adam Page. This matchup has been set up over the course of the previous three pay-per-views for AEW. Chris Jericho versus Hangman Page is a matchup of similar wrestlers, just a couple decades apart. If we look deep into the style and persona and bravado of Hangman Page, it is very reminiscent of a young Chris Jericho. When deciding upon a winner for this contest, both men are excellent and perfect choices for different reasons.
Choosing Jericho would give AEW an established name in the wrestling business. Jericho as champion would give creditability to AEW from day one. Crowning Hangman Adam Page as the first-ever AEW Champion signals a new wave to the wrestling business. Hangman Page as Champion is a new face for a new promotion. Either choice makes a ton of sense and a reason to tune into ALL OUT.
As we know the grudge match pitting Jon Moxley against Kenny Omega was scratched due to an injury to Moxley in New Japan. So Moxley’s has to be replaced, and the Executive Vice Presidents have made a decision, that replacement is none other than Pac. Seeing Kenny Omega take on Pac will be an absolutely epic encounter.
The biggest question heading into ALL OUT is whether or not we will see the re-debut into the wrestling world of one Chicago Native, CM Punk. CM Punk was at one point the hottest entity in the pro wrestling world. Punk’s appearance on Colt Cabana’s podcast (The Art of Wrestling) lit the wrestling world on fire. If we hear the intro to Cult of Personality by Living Colour, the crowd will go wild.
