AEW has been making waves since its inception this past January, and before the promotion makes it TNT debut in October, the crew will be giving us one more big pay-per-view offering in the form of All Out. Then follow-up to last year’s independent All In show, All Out will go down on Saturday, Aug. 31 inside the Sears Centre in Chicago — the same venue which hosted the wildly successful All In show last September that essentially helped AEW get off the ground months later.
The company will determine its first champion in what is expected to be the main event, but the match card is already shaping up to be epic, the perfect way for AEW to make a statement about one month before it begins weekly television with TNT. So what will go down at AEW All Out? Let’s take a look. The event is expected to begin at 8 p.m. ET and stream live on the BR Live platform. Pay-per-view pricing has not been announced at this time.

The following matches have not yet been announced for the show but are projected based on storylines.
Britt Baker vs. Bea Priestley: This rivalry kicked into gear at Fight for the Fallen as the women had to be pulled apart following a tag team match. It would be no surprise if this match was held, potentially as a play-in match for an eventual AEW women’s title.
Awesome Kong vs. Aja Kong: Also teased at Fight for the Fallen, these two squared off face-to-face in the ring. The crowd gave them a loud pop, so AEW should try to capitalize on this as soon as possible.
CM Punk? Due to this event being in Chicago, Punk making a recent masked one-off run-in at a wrestling event and fans’ constant desire to see Punk back in action, him appearing at All Out and/or joining AEW is a constant topic of conversation. AEW certainly pulled out Moxley’s debut as a major shocker that ended Double or Nothing, but will they do it again with Punk? He says no — wrestling is in his past — but then again, you never know.
