AEW’s All Out will take place from Chicago, Illinois this weekend. We already know who will be on the majority of the lineup. Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee, the current holders of the AEW Tag Team Championships, will defend their titles against The Acclaimed. That leaves Private Party out of the mix.
This temporarily excludes a number of teams from contention for the championship. Isaiah Kassidy of Private Party, a veteran part of the AEW roster, isn’t thrilled about it. The former member of the Hardy Family Office told NBC Sports Boston that his injuries during Private Party’s tag title fight put him at a considerable disadvantage.
Kassidy finds it very disappointing that they are not given another opportunity after their loss to Keith and Swerve. He also said that he failed to break the pin because his ankle was hurting that day.
This is very disappointing. I’m very disappointed because I feel like, [recently], we had a championship match against Keith and Swerve but, unfortunately, we lost, but all losses, you learn from it, so if we were given the opportunity, we’d have learned from it and possibly win those tag team championships. So I feel like we need another opportunity because, I’m going to be honest with you, my ankle was hurting that day, right? My ankle was hurting that day …. I was unable to break up the pin.
Important matches like Bryan Danielson vs. Chris Jericho and a four-way for the Interim Women’s World Championship between Toni Storm, Dr. Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter, and Hikaru Shida are already announced for AEW’s All Out pay-per-view on Sunday, September 4 at the NOW Arena outside of Chicago. However, there isn’t yet an official AEW World Championship match. Let’s see how things shape up in the upcoming pay-per-view.
