AEW All In SHOCKERS Revealed
During our live AEW All In 2023 Post Show cohosts Pro Wrestler Johnny North and Dave Simon dissected the event. Here’s a breakdown of their thoughts.
Dave Simon: Dave gave the event a score of 7 out of 10, noting that while there were some excellent matches, it didn’t quite live up to his expectations. He compared it to another event, “Payback,” which he felt was slightly better.
Johnny North: Johnny was a bit more critical, giving the event a 6 out of 10.
He felt that while there were some standout matches, there were others that he really didn’t enjoy. The value for money was also a concern for him, especially when comparing the price of this event to others.
1. Jon Moxley vs. Orange Cassidy: Dave praised the match, noting that both wrestlers finished the show on a high note. Johnny agreed, stating that the build-up, storytelling, and finish were all on point for this match.
2. Kenny Omega vs. Cash: Dave felt this was a “kick-ass” match, and Johnny seemed to agree.
3. Brian Danielson vs. Ricky Starks: Dave believed this was the match of the night, praising both wrestlers for their performance. Johnny, however, had issues with the finish and felt that the choking was overdone.
4. Darby Allin vs. Lucha Sauce: Both Dave and Johnny felt this was a solid match.
Value for Money
Johnny expressed his disappointment in feeling like he didn’t get his money’s worth, especially after spending $50 on the event. He compared it to another event just last week, “All In,” which he felt was superior in terms of value.
Comparisons to Other Events
Both Dave and Johnny frequently compared the AEW All Out event to last night’s “WWE Payback.” While Dave felt that “Payback” was slightly better, Johnny seemed to think they were on par, with both having their highs and lows.
While both Dave and Johnny had their criticisms, it’s clear that the AEW All Out Pay-Per-View had its moments of brilliance. However, both agreed that there were areas of improvement, especially in terms of match finishes and overall value for money.
In the end, wrestling fans will always have their own opinions on events, but conversations like these provide valuable insights into the world of professional wrestling.
