The biggest pay-per-view in AEW history, AEW All In 2023, is just days away with one of the biggest cards in the company’s history. Some of the most important matches on the card have massive implications and here are predictions for every announced match so far.
Aussie Open vs. Better Than You Bay Bay (Zero Hour):
In one of the smarter booking decisions to get fans to Wembley Stadium early, the top two biggest stars in AEW will be on the pre-show before the main card. It seems highly unlikely either MJF or Adam Cole eat a clean pin to Aussie Open, so it is more likely that MJF will cost Better Than You Bay Bay the match, to keep the one title Adam Cole hasn’t won from him. This match will play a big part in the story of the main event.
Swerve Strickland and AR Fox vs. Darby Allin and Sting:
It is certainly going to be a sight to watch Sting make an entrance in front of 80,000, and this is going to be a feel-good moment for him. It’s hard to believe that Swerve and Fox win this match going against nearly an unbeatable legend in his limited appearances in AEW. One thing I am looking forward to is Darby Allin probably doing some crazy stunt like doing a coffin drop off the arena scaffolding to make another Wembley moment.
CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe- ‘Real’ World Championship:
As Collision’s top star, there is not a chance in the world that CM Punk is going to lose his belt with his famous X on it to Samoa Joe. There is a tremendous story that can be told in the fourth edition of Joe vs. Punk, such as calling back often to their matches in Ring of Honor. Oddly enough, I expect this to be one of the shorter matches on the card. Punk has been very protected in his time back and has begun to show weaknesses in the ring the longer his matches go, and AEW will try to hide those weaknesses on the biggest stage CM Punk has ever been on.
Blackpool Combat Club and 3 mystery partners vs. Eddie Kingston, Pentagon, Orange Cassidy, and Best Friends- Stadium Stampede:
It is sure to be pure chaos in the third-ever Stadium Stampede match with a lot of blood involved. This match feels thrown together, probably because it is just a plug for the new mode coming to AEW Fight Forever, but it still involves some of the best performers in the world. BCC should take home the win with the partner additions of Shota Umino and two others. Rey Fenix is currently rumored to be missing this match, so I wouldn’t mind seeing Kris Statlander and another woman on the opposite side joining as replacements. I anticipate this match will further push Orange Cassidy against Jon Moxley for the International Championship at All Out.
Chris Jericho vs. Will Ospreay:
Both men in this match know this is a dream match for both of them, and it should be a great one between one of the legends of the business and one of the best in the world. Ospreay getting his moment in his home country should be very special because he has led England wrestling for the past couple of years. Once again, I expect the babyface to go over in this match. It almost feels like a house show, in the sense that fans are going to go home happy because AEW wants this event to be remembered forever.
The Golden Elite vs. Bullet Club Gold and Konosuke Takeshita:
Similar to some other matches on the card, this match seems destined for the babyfaces to take home the win. I hope that Jay White picks up the biggest pin so far in AEW, pinning one member of the Golden Elite, but that probably isn’t going to happen. Kenny Omega is going to have his moment in Wembley no doubt. We absolutely need a Jay White and Omega face-off during this match.
Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Saraya vs. Britt Baker vs. Toni Storm- AEW Women’s World Championship:
This match includes two of the more average in-ring women’s talents in AEW in Saraya and Britt Baker and hopefully the four-way can hide their weaknesses, and the women have a good match. Please Tony Khan give this match time as you have cut the women short constantly and they deserve to have their chance to steal the show in Wembley. This is probably the match I’m most torn on a winner because I could see Saraya or Shida having just about an equal chance to win the match. I’ll settle on Hikaru Shida retaining her belt because this feels like a resurgence moment for the division and she is going to continue to be the workhorse for it.
FTR (c) vs. Young Bucks- AEW World Tag Team Championships:
The argument for the best tag team in the world will be settled in one of the most anticipated matches on the card. With the trios championships being mainly on Collision with the House of Black, I fully expect the tag team titles to come back with the Young Bucks to Dynamite every week. There is a lack of tag teams on Collision, and it would just make much more sense for the Young Bucks to win. The ‘E’ in AEW is going to continue to shine all throughout All In with the Elite picking up another win.
MJF (c) vs. Adam Cole- AEW World Championship:
In the main event of AEW All In 2023, the feel-good story of the summer will come to an end. Now, I expect the match to go down 100% clean with MJF reigning supreme over Adam Cole, but after Adam Cole will turn heel. There is no way AEW books a screw job finish in the main event of their biggest show of all time, although I’m not against the idea of getting massive heat on Cole. With the reasons of MJF costing him the Ring of Honor tag team titles and taking Roderick Strong from him, Adam Cole will have finally had enough of MJF. Cole will become the new leader of the Kingdom with Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, and Roderick Strong assaulting MJF. Cole beating down MJF will turn him heel and turn MJF babyface for the next chapter in his AEW World Championship reign.
