With AEW holding the huge All In: London show on August 27th, many fans have been wondering what this means for All Out, which is traditionally held on the first weekend of September.
All In was announced on April 5th, not only will it be the first show the company has held in the UK, but it will be their biggest ever as it takes place in the 90,000-capacity Wembley Stadium in London.
While it was already known that Tony Khan intended to hold an event in London, most expected it to take place at the much smaller Craven Cottage, the home of Fulham FC, which is owned by Khan’s father, Shahid.
Another surprise was the timing of the event, which is set to take place only one week before one of the company’s pay-per-view staples, All Out.
However, Anthony Bowens of The Acclaimed has put any fears of All In replacing All Out this year to rest.
The former Tag Team Champion responded to a fan on social media to make clear that All Out will still be going ahead.
“No! This is All In, the following week is All Out”

Could Sting retire at AEW All In?
This year also sees the expiration of the legendary Sting’s contract with the company. With 90,000 seats to fill, Dave Meltzer has speculated on Wrestling Observer Radio that Khan might look to hold The Icon’s final match at All In.
“The Sting retirement should be something gigantic. England wasn’t the place I expected for it but Wembley Stadium certainly is gigantic so I don’t know that that’s gonna be it but I think given Sting is going to be retiring before the end of the year if you’re going to do something that may be the place to do it, that’s probably the place to do it.”
