The Road to All Elite Wrestling’s premier offering All Out is in full flow, and AEW officials are a happy bunch currently with the major hype surrounding the event. The tickets for the show are selling like hot pancakes (Sorry New Day), and the superstars have started the mind games on social media.
Kenny Omega is set to face Jon Moxley f.k.a Dean Ambrose at AEW All Out, and it will be a dream match come true for fans of professional wrestling. Ambrose wrestled at FyterFest against Joey Janela in an Unsanctioned Match, and moved on to NJPW to partake in the iconic G1 Climax.
Kenny Omega cut a brutal promo on Moxley and called him out for being ‘damaged goods’. He said that he has followed Moxley’s career and he knows where his opponent came from. Omega sarcastically thanked Moxley for inspiring him, and said that Moxley’s determination to make a name for himself at the Cleaner’s expense won’t materialize at the pay-per-view.
The build to the event continued with AEW announcing a new match for All Out. Fans have been wondering if the Women’s Division will make an appearance at the PPV. AEW obliged and announced the first Women’s Match for the PPV with Riho set to take on Hikaru Shida.
AEW announced a Casino Battle Royal for the show, with the winner getting an entry into the first-ever AEW Women’s Championship Match which will take place during the third week of AEW’s weekly programming.
Riho has wrestled on every single AEW PPV until now, and will continue the run with the All Out PPV. Hikaru Shida wrestled alongside Riho at Double or Nothing, in a six-woman tag-team match-up.
Kenny Omega was reportedly the driving force behind the inclusion of Joshi stars from Japan in AEW. Omega’s work in Japan is well-known, after he became a global phenomenon with his work in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
