Casino Battle Royale, Tag Team Title Match and More Announced For AEW All Out

Casino Battle Royale, Tag Team Title Match and More Announced For AEW All Out
On tonight's AEW Dynamite, a 21-man Casino Battle Royale was announced for AEW All Out on September 5.

Darby Allin, Lance Archer, FTW Champion Brian Cage, Ricky Starks, Eddie Kingston, The Blade, The Butcher, Fenix, and Pentagon Jr. have already been added to the match so far. The other entrants will be announced over the next week. The winner will receive a future shot at the AEW World Championship.

Tonight's episode also featured a Tag Team Gauntlet Match including FTR, The Young Bucks, The Natural Nightmares, and Best Friends. Young Bucks first beat The Natural Nightmares, moving on to face Best Friends. In an interesting twist, Page helped Best Friends win their match against the Young Bucks, but he looked almost guilty by his move, commentary noted his eyes looked different, like he was distraught about something.

FTR lastly defeated Best Friends to win the match and receive a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Champions Hangman Page and Kenny Omega at All Out on September 5.

As for Jon Moxley and MJF, they sat down at a table in the ring to make their AEW World Title match at All Out official.

Via an online petition, MJF gathered thousands of signatures to get fan support for banning Moxley’s finisher, the Paradigm Shift DDT. MJF instantly signed the contract and then berated Jon for his cowardice in not accepting the terms.

MJF also berated Jon for his influences. Friedman claimed that Mox idolized ECW Extremists and Jon Zandig, while he idolized classic wrestlers like Tully Blanchard. Moxley retorted, saying that this match would force him to be creative and think of all the other ways he could hurt MJF. He then signed the contract, but not before saying that nothing MJF says matters and nothing Moxley signs matters because MJF is a dead man at All Out.

However, that wasn’t the end of it. Moxley snuck in one clause to the contract. Next week on Dynamite, Moxley will face MJF’s lawyer, and his finisher will be legal there. If the legal gets out of it, MJF loses his title shot, meaning that it will be a rough night for the public defender next Wednesday.

Also announced for the PPV, Dark Order (Brodie Lee, Colt Cabana, Evil Uno, and Grayson) vs. The Natural Nightmares, Matt Cardona, and Scorpio Sky. The two sides battled tonight as QT Marshall, Dustin Rhodes, Cardona, and Sky tried to get back at Dark Order for last week's ambush on The Nightmare Family.
