AEW All Out Rumors, Returns & Surprises! | WrestleTalk


Next weekend sees the spiritual sequel to
All In, which I guess is also the sequel to Double or Nothing. AEW’s All Out emanates
from the Sears Centre in Chicago on August 31, and with it comes an AEW title match,
key headline matches, and more excitement as the company builds towards its TV debut
on October 2. AEW’s shows so far have been incredibly
difficult to predict, with matches ending with angles unforeseen, time limit draws and
genuinely unpredictable matches, and this card is no exception. Who will be the first ever AEW Champion? Who
will secure the first spot in the match for the AEW Women’s Championship? Who will win
between two of AEW’s top stars in Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley? It’s hard to tell. And you know what comes with uncertainty.
Rumours. AEW have shown a flair for the unexpected already too, so we can expect some surprises
as well. With all that said, let’s break it all down. Ya boi Chopper is here to save
the day. Before we get into though, make sure to press
the thumbs up, subscribe and bell icon to enable notifications and leave us a comment
answering the question of the day, which today is: “Which match are you most looking forward
to at All Out?” But now, let’s not do anything too rash,
let’s not make any bold claims or anything too crazy- CM Punk Will Return
CM Punk to AEW confirmed! Well what did you think we were going to start
with exactly? It’s pretty obvious that CM Punk keeps being on the verge of returning
and then he gets scared because WrestleTalk puts too much pressure on him. But this time,
we’re almost 50% sure he’s going to return. Probably. Relations between Punk and AEW haven’t been
as friendly as they once were, with Punk publicly shaming the promotion in an interview with
ESPN for sending him an offer over text. It’s all about Instagram DMs now anyway. However, just because he likes to troll us
wrestling fans into thinking he’s coming back…not that we’d fall for that sort
of thing, doesn’t mean he’s actually going to do it. Or is he? Last weekend, Cody tweeted: “Cut shitty
people out of your life & work. Life is too short.” To which Punk replied with that
Cody zooming ear gif. You know the one. So, could that be him saying, “That’s
what I did, and now I’m totally ready to debut for AEW”.
Or could he be saying “I love this tweet so much that I’m returning to AEW.” Or could he just be hoping that we get all
excited like this and then make a rumours video about him returning? Yeah, probably
that one. Shawn Spears Will Beat Cody
Fans were shocked, horrified and weirdly aroused by the end of AEW Fight for the Fallen in
July, when former Tye Dillinger Shawn Spears entered the ring armed with a steel chair
and clonked Cody on the head with it. Despite the chair being gimmicked, something
went slightly wrong as all the blood in Cody’s head decided to leak out onto the canvas.
AEW received some criticism for this, but Cody himself has come out to say that it was
a mistake and nothing more than that. Following on from this, it was announced that Spears
had got himself a new manager in the shape of wrestling legend Tully Blanchard and that
he and Cody would be going head to head at All Out. The latest betting odds have Spears as the
clear favourite for this match, which may come as a shock to some given many will have
assumed Cody would be one of the biggest stars in the promotion. A win for Spears would cement
him as one of the big stars in AEW, something few would have imagined following his dismal
run on WWE’s main roster, despite his 10 chant being one of the most over things in
company. Another PPV Will Be Announced
It was recently reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that All Out will likely
not be the last AEW PPV event of the year. So far we have had Double or Nothing in May,
the two smaller Fyter Fest and Fight for the Fallen shows, and now All Out. PWInsider reported that it is thought that
the show will take place in November, around the same time as WWE will be hosting Survivor
Series, but this hasn’t been confirmed as of yet. If there are plans to have another
show, it makes sense for the Bucks or Cody to make the announcement at All Out when the
maximum number of eyes are on the product. While they haven’t exactly struggled to
shift tickets, they will want to keep the incredible momentum they have going into 2020,
which will be the year that really shows whether AEW can be the force many expect it to be.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the current plan is to have
four PPV shows in 2020, presumably spaced out evenly throughout the 12 month cycle. With NXT set to go up against AEW on Wednesday
nights, it is crucial that AEW makes their PPV shows as entertaining as possible to ward
off competition. Kenny Omega Will Beat Jon Moxley
In what was likely the biggest wrestling audience pop of the year, Jon Moxley appeared at AEW
Double or Nothing less than a month after his contract with WWE expired. The former
Dean Ambrose attacked both Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega after the main event, but it was
former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Omega that Moxley really targeted. The two men have traded blows since, and are
set to go one on one at All Out. While he isn’t a clear favourite by any means, betting
sites have Omega down as the favourite to win this one. You would expect that both men
will be in the main event scene for AEW for many years to come, given that they are arguably
two of the most well known non-WWE wrestlers on the planet. Either man could realistically win this one,
and whoever does win will likely be in for a future title shot at whoever is holding
the AEW Championship at the time. What is less of a rumour and more of a fact is that
this will be stiff and hard hitting and will almost certainly be the match of the night
given who is taking part, so make sure you’re in the mood for some thigh slaps and bone
snaps come August 31. There Will Be Loads of Debuts
Since announcing that AEW was a thing in January, the promotion has slowly announced roster
members throughout the year, with names ranging from superstars like Chris Jericho and Jon
Moxley, to lesser but no less talented names such as Kip Sabian and Nyla Rose. The current AEW roster stands at 46 names,
but in a recent tweet, Cody said that only around 40% of the roster has been revealed,
so if I do some quick maths……that means we will at some point have 115 wrestlers…which
is actually more than WWE if you don’t count NXT…which I guess we should probably start
doing now that it’s going to be on big boy TV. If you assume that at least 10 of the un-announced
names are CM Punk, then that still leaves around 50 wrestlers who haven’t yet been
announced. One of the matches on the show is a 21-woman battle royale, with the winner
getting a future AEW Women’s Championship match, so you could quite comfortably give
a few debuts in that one, on top of all the other debuts they’ve already announced. AEW will want to make All Out a show that
persuades fans to tune in to weekly TV when it starts in October, and big debuts would
be an obvious way to make sure that happens. Kong vs Kong
A match that is yet to be announced but is expected to be on the show is a meeting of
the Kongs, with Japanese legend Aja Kong taking on Awesome Kong, or for WWE fans, Kharma.
This match was set up at Fight for the Fallen, when Aja confronted Awesome Kong in the middle
of the ring. They didn’t actually do anything, but I am a master of reading facial expressions,
and I’m pretty sure she’s saying “Hey, you free for a wrestling match on August 31
at AEW All Out at the Sears Center Arena in Chicago?” Quick note on this one, we record this video
on Wednesdays, so if this match has already been made, then you can just call me a psychic. Tony Schiavone Will Commentate
It was announced by both the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and PWInsider…so it’s probably
true…that former WWE, WCW and TNA commentator Tony Schiavone had signed a contract with
AEW. As one of the most iconic voices in wrestling history, this is a huge signing for AEW, particularly
as it is reported that WWE were very keen on bringing him in as well. Schiavone currently commentates for Major
League Wrestling and Baseball, so you could say he doesn’t commentate on any real sports
at all, but he is being allowed to commentate for AEW if reports are to be believed. AEW’s current commentary team is made up
of the legendary Jim Ross, Excalibur and Alex Marvez, and from comments across social media,
it seems that everyone wants Schiavone to replace Marvez, poor bloke. There is no word
on what kind of set up it will be for the commentary booth, but again, it would make
sense with how important All Out is to bring in all the big guns, and Schiavone is certainly
that. He also has experience of going up against
WWE/WWF, and although I can’t remember how that ended, I’m sure he will be valuable
in their battle. Chris Jericho Will Be The First AEW Champion
In what will likely be the main event of the show, Chris Jericho will take on Adam “Hangman”
Page to crown the inaugural AEW Champion. Jericho qualified for the match by defeating
Kenny Omega at Double or Nothing, and Page did the same by winning the Casino Battle
Royale at the same show. Since then, Jericho attacked Page at Fight
for the Fallen to hype the match, and if the latest betting odds are to be believed, it
will be Jericho that wins come All Out. It makes sense for AEW to make their first
champion someone that everyone who has ever watched wrestling knows. He doesn’t have
to hold the belt for long, but for mainstream media appeal and to be able to say “Former
WWE World Champion Becomes AEW Champion” will be a huge headline that the promotion
can use going into weekly TV. Once things have settled and wrestlers have
made stars for themselves, we can expect to see more lesser known stars going for the
belt, but for now, as Luke would say, having Jericho as champion “Just Makes Sense”. So those were just some rumours and speculation,

Comments (100)

  1. PETE: This video was recorded before Jon Moxley was forced to pull out of All Out and PAC was announced as his replacement! So bear that in mind with some of the things I say in the video!

  2. I guess bean eyebrows is "All Out" of the ppv 😉 and in his place SaknPac? …Meh

  3. I hope Kenny Omega vs PAC ends with PAC putting Omega in a submission with 30 seconds left in the match & Omega doesn’t get out of it but doesn’t tap then he keeps on doing the submission till omega passes out then refs & security come from back stage to get him off

  4. Apparently this was filmed before they already announced Moxsley is out.

  5. Young Bucks vs Lucha Brothers

  6. What ppv is next, we had
    All in
    Double or nothing
    All out

    And Now, Mmm 🤔

    Hit Me
    Double down
    Full house
    Up the ante
    Fold
    Poker face
    On a roll

    I'm mean are we really gonna stick with the gambling terms as ppv's?

  7. Given that it has been almost 48 hours that Moxley has announced he has pulled out and we are having PAC vs Omega, WrestleTalk could do better at re-editing this.
    As you are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in wrestling journalism, this is just sloppy.
    Sorry Pete. smh.

  8. I'm looking forward to Page vs Jericho, PAC vs Omega and Spears vs Cody

  9. Kenny is facing pac not moxly

  10. Chop of the morning to you

  11. Is it bad that I hope they play cult of personality just to fuck with fans? 😂

  12. I think it would make sense for Hangman Paige to win the first AEW championship. He's only 28, he could be on top for another decade, and in the future he could always be referred as the first ever AEW champion. That's something he can be built as. Jericho is a house hold name already without such accolades, and will be a legend no matter what he does in AEW.

  13. So Pete's nickname is "chopper" not "jobber". I thought they called him "jobber" and it sounded strange to me as an American with the British accent.

  14. Anyone else fast forward through the cringeworthy jokes Pete makes?
    Came here for the news, not a grown mans sad attempts at humor. Looking at you Oli😒

  15. Kong vs Kong may not happen since Aja Kong (as well as Shoko and Bea) are committed to another event around that time. I read that Yuka was also not gonna make it, but she is officially announced to be in the CBR by AEW.

  16. Great job Chopper Pete! Pac vs. Omega is my match!

  17. Not expecting it but, CM Punk debuting at ALL OUT would be fire.

  18. My 2 dream Aew matches are Jimmy Havoc vs Jon Moxly in an deatmatch,Cm Punk vs Kenny Omega for the AEW title.

  19. This will be better than wwe

  20. Baseball isn't a real sport yet you brits play cricket…………….. Enough said.

  21. What the songs name playing on the background sounds kool

  22. Omega vs pac moxley wont have the match yet.

  23. Or punk thinks that Cody is a shitty person so he's mocking with an "oh what's that?? coming from you?"

  24. I can 100 percent confirm Kenny will not be losing to Moxley. He may however lose to PAC

  25. I think it might be pretty cool to see Punk return to help Spears beat Cody to form an anti-Cody regime

  26. MOXLEY is out for a month cause of an infection in his elbow.

  27. Brock Lesnar shows up. Is announced as the third competitor in the AEW championship match, squashes Seabiscuit and Sealion.

  28. Jericho will be the first world champion not only for AEW but the first champion ever on any position of the card to be both a AEW and WWE and WCW world heavyweight champion.

  29. Someone might want to fill Pete in on the Moxley situation.

  30. play some video games bro and shut up

  31. Cm douche will never wrestle again

  32. Screenstalkers shit music has spread to wrestletalk…..fucking gag

  33. Yer but having Paige win sends the message that they are building there own thing plus when doing media he is the man who beat Jericho to become the 1st AEW Champion making a start along with the championship. I’m not saying that’s what they will do. They might take the safer Y2J road but I don’t think that is AEW’s stile

  34. Was really disappointed that Mox is out of the show, but to be fair Pac is a great replacement. Those two will put on a banger for sure.

    Plus there's still the ladder match and Jericho v Hangman to look forward to.

  35. Hey Wrestletalk. At CoC, confirmed is Bayley v Charlotte, then most likely Sasha v Becky. So before CoC, WWE should book a 4HW match. My idea is a champions v challengers match. Would also be good promo for 2k20 with the 4HW showcase. What do you think?

  36. Who's ready for some lucha 👹

  37. Favorite Match: Obviously Page vs Jericho

    but also kinda Janela vs Albin vs Havoc

  38. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PETE (Gas)!

  39. Cm Punk to AEW confirmed!!!

  40. Pete putting on weight or just me ?

  41. I must be the only one who doesn't want cm punk back in any capacity

  42. …AEW returns? they've had 3 shows, how the fuck do you call anything from them "a return"?

  43. The STACKED rumors

  44. Tony Schavonie In AEW? That’ll put butts in seats!

  45. Who the fook is this guy?!

  46. Punk is such a pansy.

  47. One of my favorite things about AEW is discovering all this great talent I've never heard of before. Never heard of Jungle Boy or Luchasaurus, they're my favorite tag team. Heard of Spears, but haven't watched WWE since 2012. Came into AEW hot and I'm already a fan. Doesn't hurt that I love when wrestlers have managers and his is freaking Tully Blanchard. MJF is probably the biggest heel on the planet, I was instantly a fan of his. Brit Baker, Kylie Rae, Kip Sabian, Page (hangman not DDP. We all know and love DDP lol.) the list goes on.

    Jericho being the first AEW champ makes all the sense. As does Tony Schiavone commentating. He's just better than Marvez and he was the voice I heard every Monday Nitro! Him, Excalibur and JR would sound great together. If Punk debuts, fuck yeah! If he doesn't, oh well lol. Bring it on AEW I am a wrestling fan again, thank you!

  48. Who's Harrier!?
    Robin Williams or Pete Quinnell?
    Vote Now!
    LIKE = Robin Williams
    COMMENT = Pete Quinnell

  49. I think Arn Anderson will be in Cody's corner against Spears with Blanchard, it'll be cool story

  50. Hogan vs the Iron Shiek Rematch !!!! Book it! My cheese is on Sheeky Baby!

  51. I have a felling Johnny impact might debut

  52. it is Kenny Vs Pac…. Not Kenny Vs Moxley…

  53. Imagine taking a rope, putting it around your friends head who's facing you, and pulling him towards you. That's what it was with the back rest of the chair. That's how the top back part of Cody's head got split open

  54. About Jon Moxley….. 😉

  55. tony schiavone and JR? YES PLZ!!!!!

  56. I'm guessing this video was taped before Moxley pulled out since its posted on 25th and Moxley was rumored to not be there since week prior…. Not sure why that did not get cut out.

  57. It's a tie between Omega v Pac and Bucks vs lucha bros for most anticipated

  58. Stone Cold Steve Austin will appear at ALL OUT

  59. CM Punk, LAX, A Surprise Woman Signee, & Joey Ryan
    That’s who I think will appear at ALL OUT

  60. CM Punk isnt going to be at all out, his agent is working on him hosting the FS1 WWE talk show. Punk is trolling you all, be happy with marco stunt and joey jabroni and the rest of the 100 lb nobodies.

  61. Absolutely tired of your CM Punk fanboying…he'd just be toxic to the AEW Roster…if he really wanna return he should start giving back to the indies by doing some small shows

  62. Question…is All Out airing on TNT?

  63. Jon Moxley? Does this dude even know Mox won't be at All Out??!?

  64. I'm not looking forward to anything AEW is going to suck

  65. Jericho is obviously going to win the title match.
    As for CM Punk, I don't see it happening.

  66. CM Punk:
    Wrestletalk: "¡¡C M P U N K R E T U R N C O N F I R M E D!!"

  67. Video is out dated… lololollolol

  68. Give Choppa a raise

  69. I sadly can't watch Wrestletalk anymore. im not a fan of Petes energy. I appreciate the product but I just can't.

  70. you guys will look like idiots when cm punk doesn't show next weekend

  71. 😂 you people keep trying to put over Shawn Spears as if anyone ever cared about him the guy has been cut 4 times and never was signed to or worked any indies of note he was never over he only got signed to AEW because he's friends with Cody

  72. I'll be at PAX, so I won't be watching this.

  73. The fact that im more hyped for All Out than wwe's nowdays wrestlemanias, says ALOT.

  74. Disliked cause Pete callee Baseball a fake sport. You try hitting a 94mph fastball.

  75. Hangman for the win.

  76. Yea aew is another tna just bigger

  77. Which match ? Which ever cm punk shows up on 😂😂😂😂

  78. I thought Moxley pulled out of All Out?

  79. I've never wanted someone to lose an arm in a bizarre Lego accident more than CM Punk so all this is he/isn't he shit will stop.

  80. Once the hype-train is over I feel like aew will fall flat.

  81. AEW THE REVOLUTION CONTINUES 😎👍

  82. AEW is crazy for letting Dean my bad John Moxley wrestle for other promotion

  83. Chopper Pete Quinnell – just so you know, you're awesome! I really enjoy your videos. You've been a big add to this channel.

  84. Its pac facing omega no moxley

  85. I was looking forward to Moxley vs Omega, but since that's gone now, I think I'm most looking forward to Darby vs. Joey vs Havoc.

  86. Pete takes a jab at baseball…..must be a Cricket fan…..good lad!

  87. Fantasy Booking for battle royal: Tessa Blanchard to be the joker and win. Obviously she's with Impact till 2021 but I can dream…

  88. How is baseball not a sport?? Can you go out there and play with them?? No exactly

  89. Baseball is the best sport better than soccer

  90. Jericho deserves to be AEW Champion

  91. Will wwe ever buy AEW

  92. CM Punk is going to debut in All Out AEW in Chicago this Saturday.

  93. SUPPORT, wrestle TALK. Brilliant class intro. I love it.

  94. Spears and Cody is absolutely what im looking forward to the most.

  95. More wrestlers than wwes main roster and they haven't started tv yet? Fuck wwe is screwed. Those 60% of wrestlers could be huge names
