Women’s Casino Battle Royale Will Return At AEW All Out
The Women’s Casino Battle Royale match will officially return at AEW All Out.
Tony Khan confirmed the news on this week’s episode of AEW Unrestricted, mentioning the women’s match would return at the Labor Day Weekend PPV after breaking down the men’s match this Sunday at Double Or Nothing.
The Women’s Casino Battle Royale debuted at All Out 2019 and the match was won by Nyla Rose, who used her title opportunity to beat Riho for the title last February. The 2020 edition of All Out did feature a battle royale match, but it was a men’s match won by Lance Archer.
“I’m glad we have the Casino Battle Royale back at Double Or Nothing. It’s a special part of the card and last year we weren’t able to do it because it was early enough in the pandemic and we weren’t able to bring in enough wrestlers to do a good match and what I wanted to do like this year. When we were finally able to do the Casino Battle Royale at All Out last year it was a good match,” Khan explained. “We had a really thrilling conclusion that we saw with Lance Archer and Eddie Kingston fighting at the end. It was a great finish, Matt Sydal arrived in AEW and has been an important part of AEW since then, and we saw some top stories erupt in the match. Best Friends and Santana & Ortiz were tearing each other apart in the match and then they went out just a couple weeks later and had their Parking Lot Fight.”
“It was an epic fight, so last year’s Casino Battle Royale we had to do it at All Out, but it’s an important part of AEW and it’s great to have it back at Double Or Nothing,” Khan said. “And I look forward to the Women’s Casino Battle Royale at All Out, which is also going to be returning. I’m really excited about that.”
