The card for All Out got some final fine tuning on last night’s AEW Dynamite.
Pac vs. Andrade El Idolo is now OFF the pay per view due to travel issues.
As a result, the Women’s Casino Battle Royale is now on the main show...and a new match was announced for the Buy In pre-show: Jurassic Express & Best Friends vs. the Hardy Family Office.
Orange Cassidy beat Jack Evans on last night’s Dynamite.
Some new entrants for the Women’s Casino Battle Royale were announced last night: Jamie Hayter, Rebel, LEGIT Leyla Hirsch, Abadon, KiLynn King...and Anna Jay, who returned to AEW TV to rescue Tay Conti from a post-match attack by The Bunny & Penelope Ford. Conti had beaten Ford.
Also last night, a shocking betrayal by Billy Gunn. He struck down Paul Wight with a steel chair shot to his surgically replaced hip. That allowed QT Marshall to lay out Wight with a Diamond Cutter.
The Young Bucks & Good Brothers beat the Lucha Brothers & Jurassic Express in last night’s main event. The Bucks pinned Rey Fenix with the Meltzer Driver.
After the match, Kenny Omega joined The Elite for a huge post-match beatdown on the Lucha Brothers and Christian Cage. That included The Elite hijacking the steel cage hanging above the ring to prevent anyone from coming to the rescue.
