With the main event of AEW’s 2020 edition of All Out now confirmed, it’s time we make our plays for the rest of the card that may or may not take place in front of a live Chicago audience this year. All Elite Wrestling has finally started to hone it’s stacked roster and carve out a clear hierarchy of who will be battling for championships and who will be given a chance to steal the show as part of the undercard. Chances are we’ll see some fancy new stipulation matches and special cinematic affairs thrown in as well to keep things fresh.
Hopefully All Out will be one of the final wrestling events to take place during the pandemic era, with other mainstream companies (three guesses who) already pushing to bring audiences back with COVID measures in place. Either way, it’s bound to be an action-packed show with plenty of the best wrestling on the scene to sink your teeth into. With Jon Moxley already taking on MJF’s championship challenge, there’s a chance we could be witnessing one heck of a main event which might kick-start the reign of AEW’s first homegrown champion. But who else could support such a huge show-closer?
Let’s have a go at armchair booking a few more matches for the All Out 2020 card. Make sure you throw down your own dream matches and stipulations in the comments section down below.
1. Kenny Omega & Hangman Adam Page vs FTR vs The Young Bucks – AEW Tag Team Championship
It’s no secret that All Elite Wrestling has one of the best tag divisions in the world today. With Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page leading a locker room including: The Young Bucks, FTR, The Lucha Brothers and Jurassic Express, you know you’re in for some crazy action when the duos hit the squared circle. So which tag throwdown should AEW be booking to go down at All Out? Well why not throw three of the best in the ring together and watch the Meltzer stars roll on in.
FTR seem to very much be the next two in line for the AEW Tag Championships, especially with their upcoming appreciation night and imminent dream match with the Bucks. This match could be a great way of killing two birds with one stone at the biggest AEW PPV of the year. Giving fans the dream match, with the extra added bonus’ of having Omega and Page, and it being a championship match, there’s literally nothing that can go wrong here.
For goodness sake, just book it already so I get can get excited.
2. Matt Hardy vs Sammy Guevara – House Hardy Match
‘Broken’ Matt Hardy has yet to take any of his AEW foes to where the whole cinematic fad began, House Hardy. One of his biggest attributes right now is the endless creativity of his Broken universe, something which has kept fans clinging onto his star power with the hopes of some crazy shenanigans. With his grudge with Inner Circle’s Sammy Guevara now reaching its boiling point, what better time for him to go ‘Broke’ and unleash Senor Benjamin once more.
Sammy Guevara has a long future ahead of him and a loss to Hardy wouldn’t hurt that. Putting them out of the ring would make this match a must-see event, giving All Out that extra added draw for those still on the fence. Everyone loves a good dilapidated boat, a splash of blood in the Lake of Reincarnation, also Sammy getting chased by vehicles, so what better time to pull the trigger on the House Hardy spectacular and fire on all cylinders.
3. Cody vs Matt Cardona – TNT Championship
Woo Woo Woo! Matt Cardona is now a fully-fledged member of the AEW roster and he’s kicking some serious behind alongside the TNT Champion Cody. With Cody’s attitude of defending his mid-card title against all-comers, there should be nothing holding him back from granting his long time pal and fellow underappreciated talent a shot at the belt at All Out.
Fans around the world have been waiting for the former ‘Long Island Iced Z’ to get his shot at the big time, despite a few titles along the road, Cardona has never truly capitalised on the buzz that has surrounded him since the early 2010s. Now, he’s more than ready to be that guy to naturally be one of the most over dudes on the card, and shock the world with a huge moment almost a decade in the making.
Even just appearing in a high-profile match against Cody would be enough to make up for all the hardships of being in WWE. If AEW are hoping to make a star out of Cardona, then now’s the time.
4. Chris Jericho vs ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson
Despite this being given ample time on episodes of Dynamite, I’m still not entirely sure where they’re going with the growing tensions between Chris Jericho and ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson. With Tyson’s return to the boxing world now confirmed, it begs the question whether he’s still ‘All In’ with his suspected match against ‘Le Champion’ at All Out.
I still think this match needs to happen, for just not the benefit of Tyson and his return to glory but also for AEW. The marketing wheels behind Tyson would do wonders for the company in the long run, and make them look like the biggest deal in wrestling since peak WWF.
Granted, this match would probably be a bit naff, but hell, if it’s ever going to happen, then it needs to be at All Out. AEW have a golden nugget of an opportunity that they’ve been sitting on recently, and quite frankly there’s no better time for Tyson to warm-up for his big fight against Roy Jones Jr.
5. Hikaru Shida vs Nyla Rose – AEW Women’s Championship
The women’s division has taken a bit of a downturn lately, with not a lot of fresh meat in play for anyone to truly get invested. Nyla Rose however has managed to gain a little bit of traction since dropping the title to Shida by employing the services of one Vicky Guerrero. Despite Vicky not really being around wrestling that much as of late, it was still great to see her return to what she does best: shout incoherently into the microphone.
If anything, this will hopefully see Rose through to her next title opportunity, which will likely come at All Out. Shida should keep the title, but hopefully this match will once again bring out the best in both performers with an added x-factor at ringside. Perhaps they should even allow the two fighters to go at it with no disqualifications to worry about, or even a Falls Count Anywhere match to make things a little more interesting.
