AEW All In 2023 matches: Full card, lineup for historic pro wrestling show at Wembley Stadium

One of the biggest events in pro wrestling history is coming to Wembley Stadium on August 27. All Elite Wrestling is bringing back All In, which will feature some of the best wrestlers in the world. The event will air on BR Live in the U.S. and FITE in the U.K.

The show is the long-awaited sequel to All In from 2018, where wrestlers from various promotions came together to put on a show that led to the formation of AEW. This year, AEW’s Tony Khan set out to break the all-time pro wrestling attendance record set by WWE in 2016 with 80,709 fans at WrestleMania 32.

Before any matches were announced, 36,000 tickets were bought during the pre-sale. The promotion did what was thought was the impossible and sold 80,846 tickets.

AEW will look to book a stacked show from top to bottom. Here is a breakdown of all the matches happening at All In, which will be updated when possible.

AEW All In 2023 card

MJF (c) vs. Adam Cole for the AEW World Title

The main event for All In will be MJF vs. Adam Cole for the AEW World Title.

As the first match announced for the show. MJF, the champion, fought Adam Cole to a draw in June in an eliminator match. Their feud wasn’t over but a unique twist to their rivalry was booked. 

They were paired in a Blind Eliminator Tournament for a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Titles. Instead of bickering, they formed a great friendship, with videos showing them working out, partying, and teaming together. Winning the tournament, they faced FTR for tag team gold. While they lost, instead of breaking up, MJF and Cole came together and hugged to a huge reaction. 

MJF and Cole continued to team up, using a double clothesline as their signature move. Promising him a title match at some point, MJF followed through, giving Cole a shot at All In. Until proven otherwise, this is a babyface vs. babyface match.

It should be noted that MJF was part of the opening match of All In in 2018 and is now main eventing the 2023 card.

FTR (c) vs. The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Titles

Two of the best tag teams in pro wrestling fight for the third time. FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler) defends the AEW World Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson). Their rivalry dates back to when FTR was in WWE.

After defending their belts against Brian Cage and Big Bill on an episode of Collision, Harwood said the only thing left for FTR to do was to defeat The Young Bucks. The latter team accepted the challenge after beating Matt and Jeff Hardy.

At Full Gear 2020, The Young Bucks beat FTR to win the tag team titles. They didn’t meet again until April 2022 when FTR beat The Bucks to retain the ROH and AAA World Tag Team Titles. 

Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Toni Storm vs. Saraya vs. Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. for the AEW Women’s World Title

Hikaru Shida defends her AEW Women’s World Title in a four-way match. Tony Khan announced a single-elimination tournament to determine who would compete in the bout.

Toni Storm, the former champion, was beaten by Shida on an episode of Dynamite and received a bye after exercising her rematch clause. 

Saraya, the former Paige in WWE, competes in her home country for the first time in years. A former champion, Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. competed in the first women’s four-way match at All In 2018.

CM Punk (c) vs Samoa Joe for the ‘Real World Championship’

After defeating his long-time rival Samoa Joe for the first time on Collision last month, CM Punk will defend his “Real World Title” in a marquee match at Wembley Stadium.

The pair have a storied history spanning two decades across ROH and AEW, with their bouts in the early and mid-2000s setting the tone for a new breed of professional wrestling. 

Since returning to AEW, Punk has proclaimed himself the “Real” AEW World Champion, carrying a version of the belt with his classic “X” symbol on it. Joe, the ROH World TV Champion, issued the challenge to Punk before choking him out during the main event of another episode of Collision. Before All In, Punk, in a luchador outfit, attacked Joe and accepted the challenge.

Darby Allin and Sting vs. Swerve Strickland and Christian Cage in a coffin match

A grudge will be settled when Darby Allin and Sting face Swerve Strickland and Christian Cage in a coffin match. To win a coffin match, an opponent must be put inside a coffin and be unable to get out.

Allin and Swerve’s rivalry dates back to the independent scene, including DEFY. After weeks of feuding, Swerve recruited AR Fox, who Allin vouched for, to The Mogul Embassy. They attacked Allin’s friend Nick Wayne, and an enraged Allin challenged them to All In. However, a week before the show, Fox was kicked out of Mogul Embassy and Christian Cage took his spot. Luchasaurus (Cage’s muscle) defends the AEW TNT Title (Cage has called himself the champion) against Allin at All Out a week later. 

The legendary Sting heads to Wembley to team up with his friend and partner.

New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Will Ospreay and Chris Jericho will face off in the former’s backyard. The current IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Champion, Ospreay attacked Jericho after he accepted Don Callis’ offer to join his stable. However, it was all a ruse by Callis, who recruited Ospreay. 

The two were supposed to face off inside the Tokyo Dome at one point before the COVID-19 pandemic nixed the match. 

Eddie Kingston, Orange Cassidy, Best Friends (Chuck Taylor and Trent Beretta), and Penta El Zero Miedo vs. Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yuta) and Santana and Ortiz in a Stadium Stampede match

The Stadium Stampede match returns for the first time since 2021 as various rivalries come ahead. Eddie Kingston, returning from a stint in New Japan, teams with Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor, Trent Beretta, and Penta El Zero Miedo for a matchup against the Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yuta) and the duo of Santana and Ortiz.

Moxley has attacked Cassidy, the AEW International Champion, for weeks now. The BCC has wreaked havoc in AEW, and fans have had enough. Rey Fenix was originally in the bout but was taken out by the BCC the week before the show. Santana and Ortiz, who haven’t teamed since June 2022, reunited to fight against former friend Kingston. 

Stadium Stampede is a hardcore match where the action can be all over the stadium the bout is in. Wembley Stadium is the first location outside the Jacksonville Jaguars’ stadium where the gimmick will be utilized.

Omega and White have a long and storied history, from fighting in the G1 to competing for gold. White is the current leader of Bullet Club Gold in AEW and took control of the main faction in Japan when Omega left New Japan.
