AEW All Out was headlined by CM Punk's return to the ring and a AEW World Title bout pitting Kenny Omega against Christian Cage.
But it was the debuts that stole the show.
Not only did Minoru Suzuki and Ruby Soho appear, but the show was capped off by Adam Cole making his debut and was immediately following by Bryan Danielson's debut.
"I think it was pretty cool," Danielson told Brandon Walker on Rasslin when asked about AEW doing back-to-back debuts. "Tony Khan mentioned it to me and I thought like, 'Are you sure you don't want to space it out?' He explained his reasons for doing it and I thought, 'I've never seen anything done like that before.'
"I wasn't able to watch all of it that night because I was hidden in the trailer, the feed wasn't very good, people were coming in and saying 'hi.' I watched it back either Monday or Tuesday, and I texted Tony and said, 'That is the most incredible pay-per-view I've ever seen.' I've been watching wrestling for a long time and the reason why is, it was an incredible event in itself, if you just saw it as it was, 'Woah, what an incredible event,' but it also made you look forward to the future so much. I texted [Tony] and said, 'that was just such a well put together pay-per-view. I've never seen anything like it.'"
Jim Ross, who was in the booth for AEW All Out, compared the emotional investment to WrestleMania 17, which is considered by many to be the greatest pay-per-view of all time. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
