AEW All Out is the greatest card in the company’s pay-per-view history, says Tony Khan.

The next pay-per-view on the docket for All Elite Wrestling is All Out on September 5th. As of this writing, there are ten matches on the card including The BUY-IN pre-show bout. Four championships will be on the line and to promote the event, AEW President Tony Khan returned to the AEW Unrestricted podcast to chat with Aubrey Edwards and Tony Schiavone.

Khan expressed his excitement about Sunday’s show which includes the in-ring return of CM Punk. Khan feels that this year’s All Out is the greatest pay-per-view card AEW has ever presented.

This is the greatest card I’ve ever put together. I really believe this is the best pay-per-view card we’ve ever had. I’ve never been more excited about a card I booked and I’ve never been more excited to do one of these shows with you guys, so… well this is gonna be the biggest card we’ve had. Really this year, all the pay-per-views were up so it was true because you know, Double Or Nothing was up from last year’s Double Or Nothing which was up from the year before. Revolution was up from the year before which was such a successful show and then of course, Full Gear was up from the year before and All Out last year was up from the first year so I think this year, we can expect All Out to trend again and that pattern to continue so this is our tenth pay-per-view and they’ve all been up year over year which is pretty exciting so I have said that, that this card is even gonna top the prior year but frankly it’s been true every single time. Check our numbers.

Additions are still being made to the Women’s Casino Battle Royale. The winner is getting a shot at the AEW Women’s World Title. One entrant in the match is unknown and that is the ‘joker’. Here’s the All Out lineup:

  • Women’s Casino Battle Royale: Nyla Rose, Julia Hart, Big Swole, The Bunny, Thunder Rosa, Red Velvet, Tay Conti, Penelope Ford, Diamante, Jamie Hayter, Rebel, Emi Sakura, Anna Jay, Hikaru Shida, KiLynn King, Kiera Hogan, Leyla Hirsch, Abadon, Jade Cargill
  • AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) (w/ Don Callis) vs. Christian Cage
  • QT Marshall vs. Paul Wight
  • AEW World Tag Team Championships — Steel Cage Match: The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) (c) vs. The Lucha Brothers (Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M)
  • CM Punk vs. Darby Allin
  • Chris Jericho vs. MJF — If Jericho loses, he will retire from in-ring competition in AEW
  • AEW Women’s World Championship: Britt Baker (c) vs. Kris Statlander
  • Jon Moxley vs. Satoshi Kojima
  • TNT Championship: Miro (c) vs. Eddie Kingston
  • THE BUY-IN: Hardy Family Office (Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen, Jack Evans & Angelico) vs. Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, Chuck Taylor, Wheeler YUTA & Orange Cassidy

Promoter hyperbole. I still want to see it, and Punk wrestling is undoubtedly a huge draw, but a better Women’s Title Match and something other than Paul Wight vd. QT Marshall would put this over the top.

Also, isn’t the Casino Battle Royale on the Buy-In?
AMENDMENT: Oops, I missed the update about Andrade vs. PAC. Good for the women then!

Casino Battle Royale was moved to the main card after Andrade vs. PAC was removed from the card (travel issues for PAC).


Thanks, mea culpa.

It’s the greatest one since the next one. I do like the card though. Andrade is also teasing a match against a mystery opponent, so that could be interesting

At the end of the day, Tony is a promoter. Can’t blame him for being over the top (not saying you are).

Absolutely. Total promotion, each show better than the last as TheBenjamin said.

It only becomes a problem when they take it too far, ie “Tonight Nitro is the BIGGEST in history!!!” Every single week lol.
