After the massive success of the pay-per-view, Chris Jericho declared that the game changed after the conclusion of AEW All Out. Even CM Punk stated that pro wrestling is fun again after the conclusion of the pay-per-view.
While speaking on his podcast Grilling JR, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked about AEW All Out and compared it to WrestleMania 17, which many fans consider to be the greatest WrestleMania of all time for a variety of reasons.
Jim Ross stated that the emotional investment he felt while calling AEW All Out reminded him of the time he called WrestleMania 17 in April 2001.
“If your opinion says All Out was the best pay-per-view you ever saw, then that’s your opinion and you have the right to it. The only pay-per-view I had more fun, exhilarating and full of emotion and feels – and I’ve been involved in a lot of great shows – I think WrestleMania X-Seven was the closest thing that came to me for the emotional investment of that broadcast. I don’t know what that all means, but it means I had a hell of a good time and I thought the show was excellent and well booked. Tony Khan is a good booker. Sometimes, somebody has got to realize that he’s really smart.
We will have to wait and see how AEW will be capitalizing on the insane momentum they have now thanks to the huge success of AEW All Out.
