A spot has opened up in the Women's Casino Battle Royale at AEW All Out.
On a special pre-All Out edition of AEW Dark, Julia Hart competed and won her match against Heather Reckless. Backstage, while talking about tomorrow's event, Hart was attacked by Jade Cargill and Nyla Rose. After getting kicked in the face and hit in the abdomen with a chair, Rose and Cargill slid Hart's leg into the chair and stomped on it.
In a medical update provided by AEW, Hart has been deemed unfit to compete at All Out.

Prior to her injury, all 21 spots in the match had been filled, leaving some to wonder about the surprise entrant that has typically been a part of the bout. Now, with Hart out of action, only 20 contestants remain.
In recent interviews, Tony Khan has promised a "pretty fun surprise" for the last competitor, dubbed “The Joker.”
