There were some growing pains, but All Elite Wrestling has been able to hold its own during the days of COVID. In their last PPV, Double or Nothing 2020, they played up the situation with what’s probably the best ever use of the cinematic wrestling match gimmck with the Stadium Stampede. Now they’re getting ready for their next big PPV, AEW All Out 2020.
There’s some history behind the name of this PPV. AEW’s prototype show back in September 2018 was called All In, which centered around various wrestling promotions and indie talent working together. AEW officially launched a few months later and around its anniversary they had the first All Out. It gave us the crowning of the first AEW Champion in Chris Jericho, an all-women Casino Battle Royal, the surprise debut of Orange Cassidy, and the first (and hopefully not last) Cracker Barrel Clash.
AEW All Out Price
If you’re watching through FiteTV AEW All Out will cost $49.99. If it’s through another PPV provider, the price is $59.99.
AEW ALL OUT 2020 RESULTS
JOEY JANELA VS. SERPENTICO
Results: Luther interfered by grabbing onto Janela’s leg. Janela was able to jump out of the ring onto Luther, climb to the top rope, and finish off Serpentico with an elbow drop.
PRIVATE PARTY VS. DARK ORDER’S 3 AND 4
Results: Silver and Reynolds almost had things won after hitting their lengthy double-team combo attack that ends with a German suplex pin. Instead, Private Party stood tall and defeated Silver with the Gin ‘n’ Juice.
DR. BRITT BAKER DMD VS. BIG SWOLE
Tooth and Nail Match
Results: A cinematic match, it took place inside and outside Britt Baker’s dentist office. The fight was mostly 2-on-1 thanks to Reba helping Baker. At one point, Baker tried to use a novocaine needle on Swole. Swole reversed it so that Baker stabbed herself in the leg. Swole punched out Reba, then put Baker under with a mask of knockout gas.
YOUNG BUCKS VS. JURASSIC EXPRESS
Results: The Young Bucks played it more aggressive here. Jungle Boy kept kicking out from their superkicks, but they kept him down with the Golden Trigger.
CASINO BATTLE ROYALE
Winner Gets an AEW World Championship Match
Group 1: Trent, Christopher Daniels, Jake Hager, Blade, Rey Fenix

Group 3: Billy, Penta El Zero M, Ricky Starks, Brian Cage, Darby Allin
Group 4: Shawn Spears, Eddie Kingston, Butcher, Sonny Kiss, Lance Archer
Joker: Matt Sydal
Results: Sydal was the surprise entrant here and he immediately botched a Shooting Star Press. The final three were Sydal, Kingston, and Archer. Kingston got rid of Sydal and ended up fighting Archer on the outside apron. Jake Roberts got involved for Archer while Butcher and Blade aided Kingston. In the end, Archer chokeslammed Kingston off the turnbuckle and onto his allies to win a title shot.
MATT HARDY VS SAMMY GUEVARA
Broken Rules Match. If Matt Hardy loses, he must leave AEW
Results: The real story of the night, unfortunately. Early on, the two took a huge fall onto a table, but Hardy landed VERY BADLY and hit his head on the concrete. After this horrifying bump, Sammy was pulled away and the ring doctor decided to call the match.
A very obviously concussed Matt Hardy got up and marched to Sammy. They decided to restart the match and rush directly to the ending, where the two brawled, Matt knocked Sammy off a high scaffold, and Sammy broke through a landing platform. Sammy didn’t make the ten count and Matt Hardy was deemed the winner.
SHIDA (C) VS. THUNDER ROSA
AEW Women’s World Championship
Results: An even match that ended with Shida nailing a running knee to a sitting Thunder Rosa.
DARK ORDER VS. NATURAL NIGHTMARES, MATT CARDONA, AND SCORPIO SKY
Results: Colt Cabana was setting up a powerbomb on QT Marshall, when Brodie Lee insisted on tagging in. Brodie allowed QT to tag in Dustin and proceeded to lay Dustin out with a discus lariat. Brodie tagged Colt back in and signaled for him to make the cover. Colt instead went for a top-rope moonsault, which missed, as Dustin rolled out of the way and grabbed Colt for a successful roll-up.
After the match, Brodie angrily screamed at Colt for screwing up. As the Dark Order walked to the back, Evil Uno helped Colt up and seemed to sympathize with him.
KENNY OMEGA AND HANGMAN PAGE (C) VS. FTR
AEW World Tag Team Championship
Results: FTR destroyed Kenny’s leg, meaning Hangman had to try to fight them off on his own. Kenny finally returned to help out, but accidentally knocked Hangman silly with the V-Trigger. With Kenny barely able to move, he watched as FTR hit Hangman with a spiked piledriver. Hangman kicked out, but they followed with a second spiked piledriver, which finished the job. FTR are the new tag champs.
After the match, Kenny was extremely frustrated and considered using a folding table on Hangman. He discarded it, but when Hangman stumbled towards him, Kenny shoved him away and allowed him to collapse onto the mat. Kenny stormed backstage, angrily ranted at the Young Bucks (blaming Hangman for their loss), then left in his car.
CHRIS JERICHO VS. ORANGE CASSIDY
Mimosa Mayhem Match
Results: A fun, but weird match where there were two vats of mimosa outside of the ring. At one point, Jericho put Orange in the Walls of Jericho, but Orange was able to get a glass, fill it with mimosa, and splash it in Jericho’s face to escape. Jericho tried to do an Edge Powerbomb off the ropes into one of the vats, but Orange escaped, hit two Superman Punches, and knocked Jericho into the vat instead.
JON MOXLEY (C) VS. MJF
AEW World Championship, Paradigm Shift is illegal
Results: MJF was busted open and Moxley spent much of the match favoring his arm. Wardlow distracted the ref for the sake of sneaking MJF his ring as a weapon. While MJF reached for it, Moxley smiled at him and pulled him in for the Paradigm Shift. The ref didn’t see it, so Moxley wasn’t punished as he pinned MJF.
After the match, he flipped off Lance Archer and Jake Roberts, who watched from the stands.
The next PPV is AEW Full Gear 2020, which will happen on November 7.
