Mark Davis Jokes Aussie Open Vs. Best Friends Should Main Event AEW All In Following Strong Rampage Ratings

The match was one of the most-watched in AEW history

A star of New Japan Pro-Wrestling has joked he is willing to headline All Elite Wrestling's All In show from Wembley Stadium on Sunday, August 27.

All In will be AEW's UK debut and following impressive ratings for Rampage on Friday, April 14, Aussie Open's Mark Davis has joked the IWGP Tag Team Champions should headline the major show with Best Friends.

Davis tweeted: "hey tk i got your fat wembley headliner right here brother." 

Aussie Open successfully defended the IWGP Tag Team Titles against Trent Beretta and Chuck Taylor of Best Friends in the opening contest of Rampage. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, the first couple of minutes of the match averaged 1.466 million viewers and 713,000 in the key 18-49 demographic, making it one of the most-watched matches in AEW history.

Overall, Rampage averaged 639,000 on TNT during the one-hour show, which was the highest audience since September 2021. The April 14 episode drew a 0.21 rating in the 18-49 demo, its biggest number since April 8, 2022. The show did such strong ratings because of the lead-in from an NBA Play-In game. 

If Aussie Open will be booked on AEW All In remains to be seen. Their fellow United Empire member Will Ospreay has expressed his interest in working the show at Wembley Stadium. 

One match Dax Harwood wants to see at All In is CMFTR vs. The Elite but Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks reportedly have no intention of working with Punk when the two-time AEW World Champion returns to the promotion later this year.
