AEW has ended the speculation surrounding the future of All Out as the company confirmed the event will take place in 2023 in a familiar city.
Many fans had speculated about the future of All Out after AEW announced that they were resurrecting All In for a mammoth show in Wembley Stadium in London, England on August 27th. All Out has traditionally followed in the footsteps of the original All In show and taken place on Labor Day weekend and despite the trek across the pond nothing has changed in 2023.
AEW has announced that All Out will take place on Sunday, September 3rd in the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The pay-per-view will cap off a week of action for the company in Chicago with Dynamite taking place in the NOW Arena on August 30th and Collision also taking place at the United Center on September 2nd.

Some fans have already expressed uncertainty about holding two major shows on back-to-back weekends, especially if both are on pay-per-view. However, All In in London has not been advertised as a pay-per-view event so it remains to be seen what the broadcast arrangements for that show are.
All Out 2022’s place in the history books will forever be overshadowed by the backstage fight which took place between CM Punk and The Elite after the show. Punk only returned to the company on the debut edition of Collision on June 17th which also took place in the United Center in Punk’s hometown.
