AEW has revealed Kenny Omega’s new opponent for All Out.
With Jon Moxley off the pay-per-view, Omega is now facing PAC at All Out. Omega vs. Moxley had originally been set, but Moxley announced today that he won’t be able to wrestle at All Out because a serious case of MRSA has returned in his elbow.
This will be PAC’s debut for AEW. He was supposed to face Hangman Page at Double or Nothing, but PAC was removed from that match due to creative differences. PAC vs. Page instead took place for WrestleGate in Nottingham, England ahead of All Out.
PAC was also supposed to team with Pentagon Jr. & Fenix against Omega & The Young Bucks at Fyter Fest. Laredo Kid instead took his place in that match.
PAC lost Dragon Gate’s Open the Dream Gate Championship to Ben-K last month.
All Out will also be the first time PAC has wrestled in the United States since leaving WWE. The PPV is taking place at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois on Saturday, August 31. Here’s the updated card:
Chris Jericho vs. Hangman Page for the AEW World Championship
