Tony Khan Explains Decision To Move AEW All Out

Tony Khan AEW

Tony Khan has explained why he decided to move AEW All Out.

On May 21st it was revealed that AEW All Out will be moving from its traditional Labor Day weekend spot. Instead of taking place on September 1st, the event will take place a week later on September 7th. Despite the change of date, All Out will still be held at the NOW Arena in Illinois.

The event has also shifted from Sunday to Saturday to avoid the first Sunday of the new NFL season. Meanwhile, Rampage and Collision are expected to be filmed on September 6th, but no venue has been announced.

The move comes after many fans criticised the placement of the show in 2023 as it came just a week after All In at Wembley Stadium. It was originally announced this would be the same in 2024, but the move means there’s a two-week gap.

Tony Khan Explains Changes

During a new interview with Stephanie Chase for Digital Spy, Tony Khan said he made the call to move All Out due to fan feedback. The AEW boss said he still wanted to have a show in Chicago in early September but wanted to try and give fans an even better show.

“It was really a great two-week period last year of back-to-back weekends with All In and All Out.

There was a lot of feedback of, ‘Hey, what about more time between the shows?’ and they’re both holiday weekends and I think there’s a utility to both the weekends.

Labor Day weekend has been really kind around Chicago to AEW. I wanted to continue putting AEW on in September and I wanted to give the fans in Chicago a great show and I was thinking how can I give them an even better show,

Coming off the stadium show, it’s hard to come in and do anything the week after that but last year we did it and the show was fantastic and a lot of people thought All Out was the best event of the entire year.”
