AEW All Out 2020 is less than two months away, and we take a look at how the night’s card could shape up with every single championship on the line.
AEW All Out 2020 has a hell of a legacy to live up to considering what we saw last year at the inaugural AEW All Out. While I’m sure AEW had hoped to return to Chicago this year, the ongoing global pandemic means they’re likely to be in Jacksonville with a limited audience of mostly other wrestlers as they have been for some time.
Last year, we had some amazing moments like Darby Allin’s performance in the Cracker Barrel Clash, The Young Bucks and The Lucha Brothers in Escalera De La Muerte, and Chris Jericho defeating Adam Page to become the inaugural AEW World Champion. Things have changed in AEW over the last year, but some of the staples of 2019 continue to make their mark in 2020.
Last year’s AEW All Out had 10 matches in total with two of those taking place on the pre-show The Buy-In. Following that pattern, here we’ll look at exactly how AEW All Out could turn out on September 5, 2020.
21-Competitor Casino Battle Royale
Last year, the Casino Battle Royale on The Buy-In saw Nyla Rose last eliminating Britt Baker to earn a spot in the match to determine the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion. While I expect to see the match return, what title the competitors are vying for remains unclear.
With a limited women’s roster right now, they’d be better served with a few key matches than AEW trying to scramble to fill this kind of match. That means this will likely be a men’s contest, with the winner potentially earning a shot at the TNT Championship or AEW World Championship.
It’s very unclear who we’d see in a contest like this, as it would hinge largely on how the rest of the night shapes up and overall availability in our current climate. Regardless, this is sure to be a fast-paced and unpredictable way to get the night rolling and set the tone for AEW All Out 2020.
