Acero’s AEW All Out Review 9.5.20  

Hi guys! It’s Me, It’s Me, it’s T-O-N….shit. That didn’t work out.

Hey everyone, it’s me, Tony, the Official Gum Guy of MJF, and I’m an hour early because the higher ups told me these Pre-Shows matter.

We’re here for the Buy-In, or whatever this is called. Dasha is with Tony and Dasha is hyped. Tony’s earrings distract me as music that sounds like the opening of an early 2000s porno plays on a loop. They run down the card, and we have a message from MJF.

He talks of two undefeated bulls locking horns, two great men, MJF vs Jon Moxley. He tells Jon that he has thought he’s had the upperhand, but everyone is a smooth brained idiot. No one ever gets one up on MJF. He can get just as violent and vicious as Moxley. That’s not what he’s going to o here tonight, though. He will keep Moxley in the ring like a dog on a leash. Like he’s said before, Jon is just a goon. There will be no outside brawling. One killshot, it’s the Paradigm Shift, and Moxley is all out of ammo. Sure, he can pretend that he has ways to defeat him, but he doesn’t. MJF will outwrestle him. It’s kill or be killed, but just like he said, bad things happen to people who get between MJF and his goals, and his goal is to be the champ. Tonight, we get a real Paradigm Shift, because he is better than Jon, and Jon knows it.

Christopher Daniels cuts a little promo claiming he’s next in line for the title shot, regardless if it’s Moxley or MJF.

Santana and Ortiz talk about mindset, which is bringing the World Title back to The Inner Circle. They are the only two that matter in that ring tonight. They’re the best, the best, the best.

Jake Roberts talks about catch, and how Lance will be launching people into laps. Lance says that this is 20 years in the making, and not one son of a bitch will stop him. This is his.

Kaz speaks of advantages of being bigger and taller in Battle Royals. He subscribes to the bigger they are, the harder they fall. He has beaten the biggest and the baddest. He warns the big guy not to overlook him. He will prove that he’s not just a tag team wrestler. He’s one of the bst on the roster and he can be champion. He will be.

A commercial for the new Tony Hawk game shows up.

No, wait, sorry, it’s Darby.

Video package for Orange and Jericho.

Kingston has his dudes behind him, and says you get into this sport to be a champ, and the first step is winning the battle royal. They’ve earned this, deserve it, one of them will take it, then Mox or MJF, whoever, it doesn’t matter, they’re next in line.

Spears and Tully talk about intelligence, and how it will be the sole reason for them winning.

Hager will win because his name is Jake Hager. Anyone else named Hager? Lol. No.

Taz has some words for winning, too.

The Best Friends says no one knows who is going to win. They all try really hard ,and no one knows. But here’s Chuck to say that one of them will definitely win. Lol.

Dasha predicts Trent.

Tony predicts Brian Cage.

Moxley gets some promo time. He woke up this morning tasting his blood; it’s the taste of adrenaline. He loves this feeling. Tonight, his health and well-being is on the line because the young stud is trying to take him out. He likes that feeling. He’s an animal backed into a corner, but he will bite and scratch his way out. He knows MJF gets off on being a dick, but remember that when it comes down to it, MJF isn’t he bad guy…Moxley is.

Tony heads to the booth where Excalibur is ready to cover some wrasslin.

Match 1: Joey Janela (w/ Sonny Kiss) vs Serpentico (w/ Luther)

Winner: Joey Janela
I enjoyed Excalibur and Tony trying to build Joey up as a formidable foe by bringing up his most recent outings, especially since he got his ass kicked by Jericho. The match itself was an odd one, as it appeared someone pressed the slo-mo button at times, and took me out of the match. A story was being told, it just wasn’t as strong as it could have been.

Time for AEW ALL OUT!

Match 1: Tooth and Nail Match
Dr. Britt Baker vs Big Swole

Big Swole pulls up in a limo with a ref. The ref wonders if this is the place. Big Swole says you damn skippy. She enters the office, smacks Reba with a clipboard, because she didn’t recognize her, apparently. Swole enters a dentist office and there is blood droplets on the floor. Swole ponders where she could be. Swole says she’s been waiting for her. So she must be…

Swole walks down the hall and turns left. In the shadows, Britt walks slowly with a clear mask on. Horror music plays. Swole opens a cabinet, and it’s full of little motorized teeth ala The Joker. From behind, Britt takes her diploma off th wall and clocks Big Swole. Swole grabs a nearby pan and clocks Britt across the head. Reba comes up and attempts to squirt her…

Swole pulls the top of it off, she tries to stab Swole with it, but Swole is able to overpower Britt, and Britt ends up stabbing herself in the thigh with the shot!

Britt fades! She’s out! The ref calls it.

Winner: Big Swole
I suppose there’s a big part of me that had no idea what to expect. I didn’t hate the match, but it did leave a lot to be desired, as the rules weren’t explicitly explained, and even though I loved the horror tropes, they were too small to mean anything significant. Also not sure what was in the needle for her to pass out the way she did, only to wake right back up. I’m not 100% how I feel about this, but I’m almost positive I didn’t like it.

Unfortunately, the pre-show feed went in and out over and over, causing me to miss the first half of the match, and for the timer to be completely off. I quickly ran home and put on the full event, missing a bulk of the opening of this match. Expect a full review and recap of it tomorrow in this spot. Sorry guys!

That was a whole lot of sloppiness in between and out of four ropes. There were some spots that were fun, like Darby in a thumbtack filled body bag, but there seemed to be a hell of a lot of chaos throughout that just soured the match. From Sydal’s unfortunate botched Shooting Star Press, to some random as fireworks going on, Cage holding up the X, and just an all around mess of an ending, this didn’t do all that well. The right man won, but it was a mess to get there.

Sammy will not stand. The ref hits 10, Match is over.

Winner: Matt Hardy
I get the feeling Matt wanted to tell his story of how he will not die, but it came off as awkward and unclear due to the haphazard way of the “injury” spot. The complete stop of the match then restart is odd, considering the notion that a doctor wouldn’t just allow it to continue after only a few seconds. This seems like another in a row of good idea, bad execution.

After the Battle Royal and the Hardy v Guevara match, this was a nice change of pace. I could see where some people could fall into the complaint of the lulls the match had, but these girls kicked each others’ asses. This also means a lot for the title itself, and could give a bit of a boost to the women’s division.

A fun match that perhaps made Dustin Rhodes a bit more of a deal than he actually is. The Dark Order loses again, and I can see how that would upset some, but seeing Lee go wild is always fun.

Backstage, Tony is with Dustin, and wants to ask how big the win was for tonight.

Dustin is pumped. He says they left The Dark Order in the dust. They did this for Cody. Because soon he will be back and take what is rightfully his. We are informed that Dustin will get a shot at the title on Wednesday. Dustin is shocked, says this is…it’s been a long time. He thanks Tony and says hard work pays off. He tells Brodie, God Damnit boy, he’s coming for his blood, and hell is coming with him.

Omega, very obviously, gets a hell of an entrance in comparison to his tag team partner.

Great fucking match. The blade job irked me, but I think I’m just not used to it after being conditioned for years that blood is bad. These guys put that shit all out there, especially the last five minutes or so when they just went IN on each other. Im also a fan of the ending because it gives MJF TONS of shit to talk considering Moxley cheated and is now even more of a stain on the name of AEW than before. MJF, this kid is going places.

End Show

The final score: review Good
The 411
Unfortunately for AEW, the dip in quality that happened about an hour in was something that took the entire show to recover from. It started with a Battle Royal that, although had a lot of energy leading into it, kind of fell apart after the debuting Matt Sydal botched a shooting star press. I think it put everyone on edge, causing a few bad spots immediately after. Even the ending was a little rough, considering it took a hell of a long time for Eddie to fear a snake that never came out the bag. Also, did they explain anywhere besides that very moment that he was afraid of snakes? This was followed by Matt Hardy seemingly concussing himself mid-match, causing a shortening of the match and an all-around worry of his well-being. Still, if we are to highlight the positives, FTR and Omega/Page did EXACTLY what we thought they were going to do, and then some. They killed it in the ring, telling a great story, and having a solid effort. Then, the main event opted to not be upstaged and did the damned thing as well. MJF has everything necessary as a character, but I hadn't seen much inside the ring to back it up. Tonight shut me up wholly, as he killed it, bled for us, and gave us a match that was hyper focused and a bit of a throwback to yesteryear. Dude was basically Ric Flair tonight. The opening contest is something I'll have to revisit to give a full opinion on it, as I wanted to like it, and I think I did - I just felt there was something missing. The Young Bucks continue their hellish ways, and I gotta give out props to QT who stood out the most in the eight man. All in all, this PPV was really good, but only slightly above average by AEW standards.
