With AEW All Out 2020 less than a week away, we look at all the confirmed matches, what could be added to the card, and who is likely to be victorious.
AEW All Out 2020 finally arrives on September 5, and it’ll be the first AEW pay-per-view event with fans in attendance since AEW Revolution back on February 29, 2020. That may feel like years ago, but it’s been just over six months since Jon Moxley defeated Chris Jericho in that night’s main event to become the AEW World Champion.
AEW is still operating out of Daily’s Place, and while they have introduced fans they have done so with precautions in place due to the ongoing global pandemic. The limited attendance is done under reduced capacity so fans can be spaced out, and masks are required. It still seems a bit early to have fans in, even under these circumstances, but AEW has decided they’re ready.
AEW All Out 2020 already features six confirmed matches, and one announced match that hinges on the outcome of an eight-man tag team match this Wednesday on AEW Dynamite. Here, I’ll take a look at how the final card could shape up, as well as who looks poised to walk out of AEW All Out 2020 victorious.
21-man Casino Battle Royale for a shot at the AEW World Championship
AEW All Out 2020 will feature another edition of AEW’s signature match, the Casino Battle Royale. The contest functions somewhat like a poker-themed Royal Rumble. There are 21 entrants, who each drew playing cards to see which “suit” (i.e. hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs) they will be a part of.
The match starts with five entrants of a single suit, and every three minutes five more entrants of the next suit enter the match. Finally, the competitor who drew the lucky “joker” card will enter the match by themselves at the very end.
The entrants are eliminated via standard over-the-top-rope rules, and the last man standing will get a shot at the AEW World Championship. So far, we’ve already had Darby Allin, Lance Archer, Brian Cage, Ricky Starks, Pentagon Jr, Rey Fenix, The Butcher, The Blade, and Eddie Kingston confirmed as entrants, that final one being my pick to win it all.
Prediction: Eddie Kingston wins the Casino Battle Royale
