AEW All Out

NOW Arena, Chicago, Illinios

All Out was a very inconsistent show. There were several great matches, looking you Trios Tournament final and AEW Tag team championship match. The main event also delivered.  Although, there should have been an audible called to have the Acclaimed capture their first title. And then there were matches that should have been on Dynamite or even Rampage; looking at you House of Black. The Casino ladder match’s ending was saved by the reveal at the end of the show that the mysterious masked Joker was actually MJF. Not that we didn’t figure it out.
