After a promo video telling the story of how All In came to be, Cody Rhodes, Benard The Business Bear walked out to start the show and the crowd got their “All In” chants out of the way.
Here are the bullet points from the intro:
- Host Jenn Decker said “hi Vince” and then said that “Vince doesn’t know how to use the internet followed by a “fuck you, Vince” chant.
- Names for Starrcast were listed off
- Then CM Punk was mentioned that he will be at Pro Wrestling Tees doing an autograph signing the day before All In. Nothing else was mentioned about Punk.
- There are no corporate sponsors for the event
Cody Rhodes came out next:
- Cody said All In isn’t about a bet, it’s about a feeling he has in common with The Young Bucks
- They want to break the status quo and give us elite wrestling
- A Flip Gordon chant broke out and Cody no-sold it by saying, “thank you”
- Cody mentioned again that CM Punk will be here signing at Pro Wrestling Tees before All In but left it at that.
- Cody said he wanted to talk about another brand and said he will let his next guest talk about it. Then he introduced Billy Corgan.
