AEW recently announced the first match for their upcoming All-In PPV, set to take place on August 27th.
The highly-anticipated event will see MJF defend the World Title against Adam Cole. While this alone is enough to create excitement among wrestling fans, Bully Ray believes that AEW should keep the element of surprise alive and refrain from revealing more about the card.
During the latest episode of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray expressed his view on the matter, suggesting that the company should leave the match announcement as it is. He praised AEW for having already sold a staggering 77,000 tickets for the event, creating an atmosphere where every moment, including entrances and matches, becomes a thrilling surprise.
According to Bully Ray, the allure of not knowing what to expect is what draws him in as a wrestling fan. He likened the experience of watching All-Out to a Royal Rumble, where anticipation and excitement build throughout the entire show.
“You’ve already put 77,000 people in the house.” Every match, every entrance becomes a surprise. To me, you’re sitting on the edge of your seat. It’s almost like a Royal Rumble over an entire show … I think this is the show where people at home don’t need to know anything. They’re gonna buy it no matter what, otherwise they’ll suffer from FOMO. I think the excitement of not knowing anything draws me in more.”
Wembley Stadium will play host to the momentous All-In PPV, with live coverage available on PPV and Bleacher Report, among other platforms. The event promises to be a grand spectacle, showcasing AEW’s top talent and delivering thrilling moments to the delight of wrestling fans worldwide.
