- The House of Black (c) vs. The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn – World Trios Championships
- Aussie Open (c) vs. MJF & Adam Cole – ROH World Tag Team Championships
- Jack Perry (c) vs. HOOK – FTW Championship
With all these matches going down it is time to pick our winners…
Jack Perry (c) vs. HOOK – FTW Championship
Jack Perry has been dodging his former friend HOOK ever since he turned heel on him at Forbidden Door 2023. Perry then added insult to injury by defeating him for the FTW Title before threatening to retire the championship. Now, Taz’s son not only gets the chance for revenge but also to save the title his father created.
Prediction: After a rough start Perry’s heel turn has begun to take hold and the FTW Title has been a big part of it. His mini-feud with ECW legends Jerry Lynn and Rob Van Dam was good fun and still has legs. Therefore it would be a mistake to take the title off him. Jack Perry retains.
Aussie Open (c) vs. MJF & Adam Cole – ROH Tag Team Championships
The MJF and Adam Cole partnership took an interesting turn when Cole suggested they team up once again to challenge for Aussie Open for the ROH World Tag Team Championships before they face each other for the AEW World Championship later that night.
After briefly balking at the notion of wrestling twice in one night, MJF eventually got behind the idea, and officially threw out the challenge. The match was accepted by the champs and will take place on the Zero Hour pre-show.
Prediction: This match was made to play a part in the angle that will happen later in the night. Cole seemingly goaded MJF into the match possibly with the intention of tiring out the champ before their championship match later on in the show. Expect some to see some rising tensions between the two unlikely friends on their way to a shock victory for the ROH tag titles adding further intrigue to their relationship as they head toward the main event. MJF and Cole win.
The House of Black (c) vs. The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn – World Trios Championships
The Malakai Black-led faction has targeted the scissor-happy trio of the Acclaimed and Billy Gunn over recent weeks resulting in the former DX member briefly announcing his retirement. However, several attacks, which left his protégés beaten and bloodied her came to their rescue and set up a World Trios Championship bout at All In.
Prediction: In the lead-up to and during their tag team title reign The Acclaimed were AEW’s most over acts. However, since losing the title their star has fallen somewhat and a big win over the dominant House of Black would go a long way to get them back on track. The Acclaimed win, new champions crowned.
Blackpool Combat Club, Santana & Ortiz vs. Eddie Kingston, Penta, Orange Cassidy & Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor – Stadium Stampede
There are many multi-person matches going down at this show but this one will ensure mayhem en masse inside Wembley Stadium. The teams of the BCC and the returning Santana and Ortiz take on Eddie Kingston, Penta, Orange Cassidy, and Best Friends for a session of absolute madness.
Prediction: Lots of chaos, loads of violence, and Jon Moxley bleeding within seconds. The stipulation of this match means the winner could literally be anyone involved but with the shock return of Santana and Ortiz expect to see them emerge victorious. Blackpool Combat Club, Santana & Ortiz win.
Swerve Strickland & Christian Cage vs. Sting & Darby Allin – Coffin Match
The dastardly duo of Swerve Strickland and AR Fox incurred the wrath of Sting and Darby Allin when they viciously attacked AEW newcomer Nick Wayne. Following the bloody assault, Strickland and Fox gloated about it until Sting stepped out of the dark to serve up some revenge on the Mogul Embassy setting up a Coffin match between the two teams. However, as a last-minute swerve, Christian Cage replaced Fox following a double-cross by Strickland.
Prediction: This match took an interesting turn with the last-minute addition of Christian, but his inclusion will do little to change the outcome of Sting getting a huge win in front of a huge crowd. Sting and Allin win.
Kenny Omega, Hangman Page & Kota Ibushi vs. Jay White, Juice Robinson & Takeshita
The trios match was announced on the August 16th episode of AEW Dynamite, after Kenny Omega‘s interview with Jim Ross was interrupted by Konosuke Takeshita and Don Callis. Takeshita laid out Omega before Jay White and Juice Robinson joined in. Following the attack, Hangman Adam Page confirmed he and Kota Ibushi would team with Omega against Takeshita and Bullet Club Gold in a Trios Match for All In.
Prediction: Omega and Takeshita have been on a collision course ever since the young Japanese star sided with Don Callis and cost The Elite their Anarchy In The Arena match at Double or Nothing. Their bubbling rivalry will undoubtedly lead to a singles outing at All Out, which means another defeat for the Best Bout Machine to set it up. Takeshita and Bullet Club Gold win.
FTR (c) vs. The Young Bucks – World Tag Team Championships
This match is the third meeting between FTR and The Young Bucks. The highly-anticipated first match between the two teams took place at Full Gear 2020, where the brothers Jackson won the tag team titles for the first time. The second match took place two years later, where FTR won by pinfall. Then on the August 5th edition of Collision, Harwood and Wheeler called out the Bucks for the biggest tag team match in AEW history at the biggest wrestling event in history. Matt and Nick Jackson accepted the challenge for the must-see match at All In.
Prediction: With recent stellar outings against Bullet Club Gold, FTR re-established themselves as the best tag team on the planet while the Bucks don’t seem to have the adrenaline they once possessed that held them in such high regard. Hopefully, this match will help reestablish them as the top team in the world, reinvigorate the division, and build the bridge between the Elite and CM Punk. Young Bucks win, new tag team champions crowned
Chris Jericho vs. Will Ospreay
The widely-rumored match between Chris Jericho and Will Ospreay was confirmed on the August 16th episode of AEW Dynamite, when Jericho was set to join Don Callis’s stable, but he changed his mind at the last minute. This led to Ospreay attacking Jericho with a steel chair and challenging him to a match on his home soil.
Prediction: Despite this being the Ospreay match many fans weren’t expecting or even wanted at this show, the hometown hero is incredibly excited about it. The two wrestlers have never faced each other in a singles match and their different wrestling styles offer an interesting aspect to the bout. Ospreay wins.
CM Punk (c) vs. Samoa Joe – “Real” World Championship
CM Punk and Samoa Joe’s lengthy rivalry will come to a head at the biggest event in wrestling history, All In at Wembley Stadium. After weeks of collisions on Collision Punk accepted the match and will put the title he had branded as the “Real World Championship” on the line.
Prediction: Like always Punk and Joe will put on a stellar outing but it is the involvement of the title the former claims is still valid because he never lost it (despite being officially stripped of it by Tony Khan after the All Out 2022 debacle) that heavily tips the scales of intrigue. There can be little doubt Punk will lose the X-covered title thus setting up a unification match at All Out. CM Punk retains confronts the winner of MJF vs. Adam Cole.
Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Britt Baker vs. Toni Storm vs. Saraya – Women’s World Championship
After Shida shockingly defeated Storm to win the title on the 200th edition of Dynamite it was announced that the AEW Women’s World Championship would be defended in a four-way match at All In. A mini-tournament was scheduled to determine the participants. Toni Storm was given a buy to the finals as she used her rematch clause. The other three spots would be filled by the winners of three qualifying matches. Shida defeated Anna Jay, Saraya defeated Skye Blue and Britt Baker defeated The Bunny to earn their spot in the finals.
Prediction: Aside from the match marking the first time that the Women’s World Championship has been defended outside of the United States. It is also Saraya’s first match in her home country since 2016, which will be a very special moment for her. Sayara wins and a new champion is crowned for that huge hometown pop.
MJF (c) vs. Adam Cole – World Championship
Once bitter enemies and now best of friends MJF and Adam Cole go one-on-one for the World Championship in their second match of the night. Their journey began when they were paired together as a tag team in the AEW Blind Tag Team Eliminator Tournament in June 2023. Despite their different personalities, MJF and Cole struck up an unlikely friendship and began hanging out together outside of the ring resulting in them becoming best buds. However, their over-the-top “bromance” has an undercurrent of hostility, which will undoubtedly come to the forefront during their match.
Prediction: This match is all about who is going to turn on who. After weeks of comedy segments, double clotheslines and very nearly winning the World Tag Team Championships their “friendship” will come crumbling down as their respective ulterior motives will fruition. Cole will betray MJF, but the Devil will definitely have a response up his sleeve. MJF retains.
AEW All In starts at 6pm UK time and is available to purchase on pay-per-view via Bleacher Report and FITE TV.
