AEW All Out 2022 Preview – Where Champions Are Made

It is time for one of AEW’s biggest pay-per-views of the entire year, AEW ALL Out 2022. The massive card has fourteen matches, including seven titles that will be on the line on Sunday night. Let us look at what should be a truly fun and memorable night in Chicago!

AEW All Out 2022
Tomohiro Ishii vs. Eddie Kingston
(Zero Hour Pre-Show)  

Eddie Kingston had been involved in a feud with Sammy Guevara in the previous few weeks. But it seems a real-life confrontation with Guevara has put that feud on ice for now. What will Eddie Kingston do for a replacement feud at AEW All Out? He gets to fight New Japan’s, Tomohiro Ishii! Easy, right?

Ishii fought Kingston at NJPW Capital Collision in May. It was a physical encounter that Ishill won in sixteen minutes. What will happen in the rematch? It is hard to say but we know the fans will certainly get a potential show stealer during the Zero Hour on Sunday night. 

AEW All Out 2022
Pac (c) vs. Kip Sabian
(AEW All-Atlantic Championship)
(Zero Hour Pre-Show)  

Pac won the inaugural AEW All-Atlantic Championship at Forbidden Door. He has been a true fighting champion since that night in June, defending the title around Europe. But little did he know a man wearing a cardboard box on his head was watching and waiting.

Kip Sabian had been out of action since March of 2021. He removed the cardboard box to attack Pac after the main event trios match two weeks ago. This will be Pac’s biggest title defense to date. Can he defeat a rested and ready Kip Sabian? Here is hoping this is not the last time we see the All-Atlantic Championship defended on a major AEW show.

Hook (c) vs ‘Cool Hand’ Angelo Parker
(FTW Championship)
(Zero Hour Pre-Show)  

It was certainly a special moment to see Hook win the FTW Championship in late July. It was the title that his father originated in ECW all the way back in 1998. And Hook has even defended the FTW title on Rampage.

At AEW All Out, Hook will defend the title against Angelo Parker of the Jericho Appreciation Society. Parker and Matt Menard have been trash-talking Hook for weeks to get this title match. We also know they are not above cheating to get their way. Will Hook be prepared for the duo? If he isn’t, it could be the end of his FTW Championship reign.

AEW All Out 2022
House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King and Buddy Matthews vs. Darby Allin, Sting and Miro

House of Black sure has made some enemies in the last few months. Brody King has been terrorizing Darby Allin for months. Miro has been furious since the black mist was sprayed in his face a few weeks ago. It all caught up to House of Black last week when Miro cost House of the Black in their Trios Tournament match.

It is time for a huge trios tag team match to settle these heated feuds. House of Black has been in some huge trios matches in recent months. Will their experience advantage play a deciding factor on Sunday night? It will certainly be fun to find out in this high-stakes match.

AEW All Out 2022
Wardlow and FTR (Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood) vs. Jay Lethal and the Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley)

Wardlow’s first major feud since winning the TNT Championship was against Jay Lethal. Wardlow successfully defended the title against Rampage just a few weeks ago. This was apparently not enough for Lethal and his allies, and they have been demanding another match since that night. Lethal gets his chance on Sunday night.

It is another trios tag team match in Chicago. Wardlow will be teaming up with his former Pinnacle stable members FTR. Lethal has picked some interesting allies. The Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin, and Alex Shelley will work with Lethal. With this many legendary tag teams, it should be a fun match-up in Chicago.

AEW All Out 2022
Swerve in Our Glory (Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland) (c) vs. The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens and Max Caster)
(AEW World Tag Team Championship)

Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland have quickly become one of the most dominant teams in the truly talented AEW tag team division. The highlight was defeating the Young Bucks and Starks/Hobbs for the tag titles at July’s Fyter Fest. They have been on an incredible winning streak since that fateful night.

For their first pay-per-view defense, they get the hottest young tag team in AEW, The Acclaimed. The Acclaimed has been feuding with The Gunn Club in recent weeks but has been building up an impressive resume of tag team victories in recent months as well.

This success impressed the champions, and they offered this huge Tag Team title match at AEW All Out. How will the Acclaimed perform in their biggest match ever? And more importantly, what will Max Caster’s rap be about? We will find out on Sunday night.

AEW All Out 2022
Ricky Starks vs Powerhouse Hobbs

Ricky Starks and Powerhouse Hobbs, two of the brightest young stars in AEW, were inseparable as part of Team Taz. They had a lot of success in the tag team division and also with Ricky Starks winning the FTW Championship. That is what made the moment on July 27th all the more shocking.

Starks had just lost the FTW Championship and congratulated Hook on the victory. As Starks gave his post-match promo, Hobbs attacked. He had betrayed his friend. What will happen when the former friends face off at All Out in a personal singles match?

It is a hard match to call, but the winner certainly positions itself as one of the brightest stars in all of All Elite Wrestling.

Claudio Castagnoli vs. Wheeler Yuta vs Penta El Zero Miedo vs Rey Fenix vs Rush vs Andrade El Idolo vs Dante Martin vs the Joker
(Casino Ladder Match)

It is time for another Casino Ladder Match! The winner of this dangerous match will get a future AEW World Championship match. When the stakes are this high, and you add ladders, it becomes a truly memorable addition to the All Out card.

This particular ladder match is filled with allies. We have two members of the Blackpool Combat Club. We have the Lucha Brothers. We have the veteran tag team of Andrade El Idolo and Rush. The two wildcards are the high-flying Dante Martin and the mystery Joker. Who will be the Joker? Let the speculation begin!

Jade Cargill (c) vs. Athena
(AEW TBS Championship)

Jade Cargill has an undefeated record of 36-0. She has held the TBS Championship for over 240 days going into AEW All Out. Who can possibly defeat her? She might be facing her most challenging opponent yet in Athena.

Athena surprised the AEW fans with her debut at AEW Double or Nothing in May. Since that night, she has set on Cargill and her “Baddies”. On Sunday night, the wait is finally over. This will be Jade Cargill’s toughest test yet against the 15-year veteran Athena. Could this finally be the night Jade finally loses? It will be fun to find out.

AEW All Out 2022
Toni Storm vs. Britt Baker vs Jaime Hayter vs. Hikaru Shida
(Interim AEW Women’s World Championship)

It was certainly a surprise when Thunder Rosa, the reigning champion, announced she could not defend the AEW Women’s World Championship at All Out. For the second time in just a few months, we will have an Interim Champion in All Elite Wrestling. And the Interim AEW Women’s World Title will be determined in a Fatal Four Way Match.

This match has some interesting storylines. Baker and Hayter are long-term allies. Will they work together to eliminate the competition? Hikaru Shida is a former champion, and Toni Storm has come close many times to winning the title. With four hungry competitors fighting for the Women’s Championship, the stakes are surely high in Chicago.

AEW All Out 2022
Jungle Boy vs Christian Cage

This feud has certainly become personal in a hurry. Christian Cage was an amazing ally to the Jurassic Express. Once they lost the AEW World Tag Team Championship, he turned his back on Jungle Boy with a vicious attack. But it wasn’t enough to just betray Jungle Boy, he felt the need to have some personal attacks against Jungle Boy and his late father.

After his return from the attack, Jungle Boy has shown a side of his personality we have never seen before. It is truly vicious and aggressive. Can he keep his emotions in check long enough to defeat Cage? Cage will certainly do everything in his power to throw Jack Perry off at AEW All Out.

AEW All Out 2022
Bryan Danielson vs. Chris Jericho

This match is all about Daniel Garcia. The talented 23-year-old Garcia defeated his childhood hero Bryan Danielson. He lost the two out of three falls rematch but won the respect of Danielson and the AEW crowd. As Chris Jericho came down to control his ally Garcia, Daniel turned his back on his mentor.

After things didn’t improve on the next week’s AEW Dynamite, Jericho challenged Danielson to a match at AEW All Out. It is a rare encounter between two of the all-time greats of professional wrestling. The biggest question hanging over the match: will Daniel Garcia take sides in this huge match-up? That will be the deciding factor in this massive match.

AEW All Out 2022
Jon Moxley (c) vs. CM Punk
(AEW World Championship)

The main event certainly had many twists and turns in recent months. After winning the AEW World Championship at AEW Double or Nothing, CM Punk had to take time off for an injury. He didn’t even have a chance to defend the World Championship once. It was time to crown an Interim AEW World Champion.

Enter Jon Moxley. Moxley defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to win the Interim AEW World Championship at Forbidden Door. Moxley quickly became the fighting champion, defending it on three occasions in some truly physical matches. The last defense was against Chris Jericho at Quake by the Lake. After that brutal victory, Moxley’s reward was a returning CM Punk.

In one of the most surprising decisions in AEW history, a Unification match between the two champions was set for AEW Dynamite just two weeks before AEW All Out. In a really shocking moment, CM Punk lost the title match in just three minutes. What would happen with the World Championship heading into All Out?

Moxley laid out an open challenge contract for AEW All Out this past Wednesday night. The contract was picked up by Ace Steel, the man who trained CM Punk. He has to convince a despondent CM Punk later that night to accept a rematch at AEW All Out. What will happen in the huge rematch main event? Can CM Punk find a way to get past the dangerous Jon Moxley? It will be quite the way to end a memorable night in Chicago.
