Top Matches to Watch

Chris Jericho vs. Hangman Adam Page for the AEW World Championship

In what promises to be the main event, Jericho and Page will do battle to determine the first AEW World champion in company history.

Page won the Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing to earn his spot in the match, while Jericho beat Omega in the main event to get his title shot.

The interactions between Jericho and Page have been somewhat few and far between, although they did mix it up at Fight for the Fallen in July. After Page defeated Kip Sabian, Jericho attacked him and left him bloodied.

Jericho cut a promo on the city of Jacksonville, Florida, later in the night, which prompted Page to make his way to the ring and fight back.

A compelling case can be made for either Page or Jericho to win the AEW World Championship, but only one of them can leave Chicago with the title.

Putting the strap on Jericho makes sense because of his star power, but it can be argued that he is already such a big star that there would be more value in ensuring Page is a made man.

Regardless of who wins, Jericho vs. Page will go down as a landmark match in the history of AEW.

          

Kenny Omega vs. Pac

Omega was originally scheduled to face Jon Moxley in one of the marquee matches at All Out, but a late change was made last week when Moxley announced he would be unable to compete.

Moxley took to Twitter to say that due to a MRSA infection in his elbow, he was not cleared to wrestle at All Out:

Jon Moxley @JonMoxley

I'm absolutely gutted to have to deliver this news but I'd rather it come directly from me. In a nightmare scenario, a serious case of MRSA has returned in my elbow. The timing couldn't be worse. In this circumstance I am forced to pull out of the fight 8/31 vs Omega at All Out .

AEW officials hastily found a replacement in Pac, which created an intriguing subplot since Pac was originally supposed to be part of the event.

Pac pulled out of his scheduled match with Page because of reported creative differences, and it was unclear when or if he would resume working with the company.

Although Omega vs. Pac doesn't have the same build and importance as Omega vs. Moxley did, it is still a first-time-ever match involving two of the best in-ring workers in the world.

Taking the overall story out of the equation, it can be argued that Omega vs. Pac will be a better match than Omega vs. Moxley would have been.

The level of anticipation may not be as high since Omega and Pac don't have a built-in issue, but it will be an enjoyable athletic display nonetheless.

          

The Lucha Bros vs. The Young Bucks in a Ladder Match for the AAA World Tag Team Titles

AEW's longest-running rivalry will continue Saturday when The Lucha Bros and The Young Bucks clash in a ladder match for the AAA World Tag Team Championships.

The teams have traded the AAA tag titles on a couple of occasions in recent months, including at Verano de Escandalo in June when Pentagon and Fenix beat The Young Bucks for the championships.

At Double or Nothing in May, The Young Bucks retained the AAA World Tag Team Championships against Pentagon and Fenix, but their reign wouldn't last much longer.

The two teams also met at AEW Fyter Fest in June as part of a six-man tag team match that saw The Young Bucks and Omega beat Pentagon, Fenix and Laredo Kid.

While The Lucha Bros have not enjoyed much success under the AEW umbrella thus far, that may change Saturday. Since Pentagon and Fenix are more likely to continue working with AAA, it stands to reason that they will prevail at All Out.

That would also give The Lucha Bros a major boost in their pursuit of the AEW Tag Team Championships.

The teams already have a ton of history together, and adding ladders into the mix should escalate the rivalry and perhaps allow them to steal the show at All Out.
