AEW All In 2023 is coming to Wembley Stadium in just two months, so we’ve brought our predictions on what to expect for the show.
It is just the second time pro wrestling has come to Wembley Stadium. It will be a huge cultural event and help secure AEW’s place as the top promotion in the United Kingdom.
AEW All In has sold over 65,000 tickets, without announcing a single match on the card! This shows the immense popularity of AEW, and how starved the UK fans are for top class wrestling.
In this article, we’ll talk you through the match predictions that we think will help AEW All In sell out Wembley Stadium, and bring wrestling back into the mainstream in the UK.
10. Sting vs Chris Jericho
Sting and Chris Jericho somehow spent 35 years in wrestling together without wrestling a singles match against one another.
Their first match versus one another was a six-man tag team match at Forbidden Door, followed by a tag team match on the following AEW Dynamite.
Sting has yet to have a singles match in AEW, but there is no better time for one last match than in front of 70,000 fans in AEW’s biggest show ever.
The veteran Jericho would also be able to work around Sting’s deficiencies (he is 64, after all) to put on a fun match that doesn’t expose “The Icon” too much.
Prediction: Sting beats Chris Jericho in a dream match that should have happened in WCW.
9. FTR vs Bullet Club Gold vs The Young Bucks (AEW Tag Team Championship)
While I would love to see Jay White having a singles match at AEW All In, my prediction is that the show comes too soon for him.
He is guaranteed to be a huge singles star in the promotion, but we it looks like tag team gold will be his accomplishment in AEW.
Jay White formed Bullet Club Gold earlier this year, and has recruited Juice Robinson and The Gunns as the newest members of the group.
All four of those men have had a feud with the AEW Tag Team Champions recently, as have the Young Bucks.
Nick and Matt Jackson would need a big match on the card, and with the rest of The Elite busy on this card (more on that later…), adding them to this match would be a good use of their talent.
Prediction: Jay White leads his team to victory, pinning Dax Harwood to win the AEW Tag Team Championship for Bullet Club Gold.
8. Bryan Danielson vs Nigel McGuinness
Despite him breaking his arm in the main event of Forbidden Door, Bryan Danielson will be determined to make it to All In.
If the rumours are to be believed, he will bring his old rival Nigel McGuinness out of retirement for one last match, over a decade after their last fought in Ring of Honor.
McGuinness retired after being rejected by WWE, but has claimed he will wrestle in a sold-out Wembley Stadium if called upon.
Despite being ten years out of the ring, Nigel McGuinness is still a top-class athlete, and could be carried to a five-star match by Bryan Danielson on the biggest stage of them all.
Prediction: Danielson taps out McGuinness, before the pair embrace in the ring.
7. Jungle Boy vs HOOK (FTW Championship)
This match seems inevitable, following the post-match shenanigans at Forbidden Door.
After he lost to SANADA, Jungle Boy attacked his friend Hook and turned heel for the first time in AEW.
This would be the biggest singles match for both men, and be a real “sink or swim” moment for the two young talents.
While this may be too big a stage for the pair, if they do pull off a fantastic match, then you have two new main event stars at All In 2023.
Prediction: Hook wins to send Jungle Boy further down the depths of depravity.
6. CM Punk vs Adam Page
With their highly-publicised spat ending in a backstage fight and suspension for CM Punk, AEW would be silly not to capitalise.
The feud between CM Punk and Adam Page was more intense behind the scenes than in front of the camera, and the two top stars could harness that into an incredible, hard-hitting match.
They last wrestled at Double or Nothing 2022, where Punk beat Page to win his first AEW Championship.
Now that he’s seemingly turned heel, the rematch would have a completely different dynamic and make for some appointment viewing at Wembley Stadium.
Prediction: CM Punk cheats to beat Adam Page, leaves Wembley with 90,000 booing him out of the stadium.
5. Orange Cassidy vs Zack Sabre Jr (AEW International Championship)
After losing in a four-way match at Forbidden Door, Zack Sabre Jr seemed set to take on Orange Cassidy in one-on-one action.
The NJPW Television Champion failed to win the AEW International title, but we predict that he will be the British representative when the belt is defended in the UK.
He is flying the flag for the UK, with his technical style of wrestling reminiscent of the classic British style that was seen every Saturday afternoon on “World of Sport”, in years gone by.
Prediction: This one can go either way – the fans would be happy for either man to win.
4. Saraya vs Kris Stalander (TBS Championship)
Saraya will need a big match at Wembley Stadium. She is the biggest British star signed to AEW, and one of the most popular women’s wrestlers in the world.
Coming from a legendary British wrestling dynasty, the stage is set for her grand homecoming at Wembley Stadium.
While the AEW Women’s title match will likely be between two other women (more on that in a bit), a TBS Championship bout against Kris Statlander would be a perfect “first time ever” match for the former Paige.
Prediction: Saraya wins with help from her family, and AEW sign her brothers to deals after the show.
3. Toni Storm vs Jamie Hayter (AEW Women’s Championship)
The hometown hero Jamie Hayter simply must beat Toni Storm for the AEW Women’s Championship at Wembley.
The pair have traded the belt back and forth twice now. Hayter suffered an injury before her last loss to Storm, but should be back in time for a heroes welcome at AEW All In.
Tony Khan usually gives the fans what they want, so a feel-good story of an English girl winning in Wembley would be best for the show.
Prediction: Jamie Hayter wins back her title, pinning Toni Storm in a main-event match.
2. MJF vs Adam Cole (AEW Championship)
It’s clear that AEW are building to Adam Cole vs MJF for the AEW Championship at All In.
The pair wrestled to a time-limit draw on AEW Dynamite, before being teamed up as random partners in a tag-team tournament.
Despite illness keeping Cole off the Forbidden Door card, he should be raring to go for a title match with MJF, likely with a form of “hardcore” stipulation t keep MJF’s run of stipulation matches alive.
While the title likely won’t change hands, it should be a wonderful match from two of AEW’s best.
Prediction: MJF retains in a fantastic match, solidifying himself as the greatest AEW Champion ever.
1. Kenny Omega vs Will Ospreay (IWGP United States Championship)
After their all-time great match at Forbidden Door, the stage is set for a third and final bout between Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay at All In.
Kenny Omega won their first match, which took place on neutral ground in Japan. The second was in Toronto, where Will Ospreay picked up the win in Omega’s home country.
With AEW now coming to just half an hour from Will Ospreay’s house in Essex, it seems only right that their rubber match should be in his back garden.
The bout will likely be fantastic, although whether it can live up to their previous matches is another thing entirely.
Predictions: The fans win by seeing two of the all-time great wrestlers battle in Wembley Stadium.
