The second match for All Elite Wrestling’s second official event, All Out, has been made with Kenny Omega in singles action against Jon Moxley.
This will be an IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship derby of sorts with Omega the first holder in the history of the championship and Moxley the current champ – Death Rider defeated Juice Robinson in his NJPW in-ring debut at the Best Of The Super Juniors Finals last week.
Reports surfaced last week claiming those in charge at All Elite weren’t decided if they should recognise Moxley as the IWGP US title holder on their shows.
The other match booked for All Out at the time of writing will see Adam “Hangman” Page take on Chris Jericho for the vacant AEW World title.
Initially, at AEW Double Or Nothing on May 25, Hangman was supposed to take on PAC for the vacant title before ‘creative differences’ saw the match cancelled.
Hangman then won the Casino Battle Royale to qualify for the match, before Jericho defeated Omega in the DON main event.
All Out takes place on August 31 from the Sears Center in Chicago.
