A year ago, Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks made huge waves in the wrestling world with their show All In. This show eventually paved the way for All Elite Wrestling to form. While this is technically AEW’s 4th show, I think this one needs to be their best. It is in the rabid wrestling city of Chicago and it is the event that leads into their TV show debuting in October.
Private Party vs. Angelico & Jack Evans
When we talk about how the pre-show is a display to make people buy the PPV, this match is certainly the best choice for that! Both of these teams have put on amazing matches on AEW shows, so I fully expect this one to set the table for the PPV. I think Private Party will pull off the victory in this one, but both will look good leading up to the Tag Team Tournament.
21-Woman Casino Battle Royale
The winner of this one will be in the match to crown the inaugural AEW Women’s World Championship. It is a wide open field, with only 10 women announced at this time. A good mix of veterans and newer stars will be showcased, but I fully expect Britt Baker to win this one.
Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, and Marko Stunt vs. SoCal Uncensored
We all know how we here at the Jobber Knocker feel about 6-Man Tags. This one is no different. We’ll see if SoCal Uncensored can make some magic out of this. I kind of feel for Jungle Boy. He was in a high profile match at Fyter Fest and has now fallen down to being in a schmoz 6-Man Tag. Because I am sure SoCal Uncensored is helping make future stars, I see Luchasaurus/Jungle Boy/Marko Stunt being the winners in this matchup.
Riho vs. Hikaru Shida
I’ll try real hard in this one. I am a huge fan of women’s wrestling, and I feel like I pan and am unexcited for some of the Joshi matches that AEW has put on. These two won a 6-Woman match at Double or Nothing, but got into it at the end. This one will be the payoff. Riho will probably win this one.
Darby Allin vs. Joey Janela vs. Jimmy Havoc
Just looking at the competitors in this match, you know that it is going to be a rough one to watch. All three are known for their extreme violence, so I expect this one to be no different. Allin’s debut against Cody was pretty impressive, but I think this one is Janela’s match. He looked good against Moxley, so now it is his time to shine if AEW wants to make him a legitimate star.
Cody vs. Shawn Spears
Cody took one hell of a shot to the head from Spears at Fyter Fest. That set the table for this match. I’m excited for this one, as it will certainly be Spears’ chance to show everyone what he’s got. I don’t see him winning, but hopefully they can make Spears a star at the end of this. AEW needs to develop new stars, especially with Moxley being out for a while.
Lucha Bros. Vs. The Young Bucks
This one might be the final match between these two teams. They will be competing once again for the AAA World Tag Team Championship, this time in an Escalera De La Muerte match (commonly known as a ladder match to the uncultured). This match type is fitting for these teams. One can imagine it will be another outstanding bout like their meeting at Double or Nothing. Lucha Bros will leave this one with their titles, and hopefully this feud will be over so both teams can move on.
Best Friends vs. The Dark Order
The Dark Order made a very strange debut at Double or Nothing. Some might know them as the Super Smash Bros from the Indy Scene. The Dark Order is an outstanding team in a company full of great Tag Teams. The winner gets a first round bye in the Tag Team Tournament. I don’t think they would have put on such a production with the Dark Order if they didn’t have big plans, so I expect them to win this one and get the bye.
PAC vs. Kenny Omega
I’ll say it; not a PAC fan. Unlike what Nestle said on the podcast Wednesday, I don’t see this one as an upgrade. The personal battle between Omega and Moxley was getting really good, and I was looking forward to the payoff. By no means does this mean this match won’t be a good one. Since PAC is the fill in, I don’t see him winning this one. Omega is on a different path right now and gets the win.
Adam Page vs. Chris Jericho
We finally crown our AEW World Champion at All Out. While many believe that the young upstart Adam Page will help lead AEW into the future, I think they are going in the opposite direction. It makes the most sense for Chris Jericho to be the champion leading into AEW’s debut on TNT. He is the credible name and being the champion fits in with his theme of AEW fans needing to thank him. That, and we need the rubber match between Jericho and Omega! I fully expect the debut show for AEW on TNT will end with Omega challenging Jericho to put an end to their feud.
Sadly I am not able to watch AEW All Out live, however I will be following along. Let me know what you think @TJoftheJK , and follow all of the Jobber Knocker Staff for all their opinions and articles.
