News of the Night:

  1. W. Morrisey attacked the Wingmen before being given a business card by Stokely Hathaway – is he now signed to AEW?
  2. Hangman Page will be the third man in Dark Order’s trios match against the Best Friends on Rampage.

Final Verdict: 4/5

Well, that folks is how you do a go-home show… AEW told two great stories in the space of two hours, both of which will have a big impact on this weekend’s pay-per-view. CM Punk and Jon Moxley will have a rematch, 10 and Evil Uno are out of action so Hangman Page has to step in… good god, what has Tony Khan got planned for the finales of both of these tales? Will CM Punk regain the title in front of a Chicago crowd, Rocky-style? Or are we going to get interference from someone NOT currently appearing in AEW (no APPEARING, not not-signed) and will Hangman’s allegiance to Dark Order be tested when he undoubtedly has to face the Elite in the Trios championship final? I hope to god his loyalties lie with Dark Order and he finally and whole-heartedly embraces them as HIS team! All in all this was a brilliant teaser for All-Out!
