Production[]

Background[]

First held in 2019, All Out is considered one of AEW's big four pay-per-views alongside Revolution, Double or Nothing, and Full Gear. On June 25, 2023, during Forbidden Door, it was announced that the fifth All Out event would take place on September 3 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Additionally, it was revealed that the August 30 episode of Dynamite and the September 1 episode of Rampage would take place at the NOW Arena, while the September 2 episode of Collision would take place at the United Center.

Storylines[]

On the July 21 episode of Rampage, Darby Allin won the Royal Rampage Battle Royal, earning a match against TNT Champion Luchasaurus at All Out.

After beating Skye Blue on the August 23 episode of Dynamite, Ruby Soho made her intentions to challenge TBS Champion Kris Statlander clear. On the August 25 episode of Rampage, Statlander prevented Soho from interfering in a tag team match that saw Soho's stablemates Saraya and Toni Storm take on Hikaru Shida and Dr. Britt Baker DMD. On the August 26 episode of Collision, Soho challenged Statlander to a title match at All Out, which was accepted.

On the August 5 episode of Collision, Ricky Starks faced CM Punk for his "Real World Championship", with Ricky Steamboat serving as special outside enforcer. After losing to Punk, Stark would attack Steamboat with his own belt. AEW would, in kayfabe, suspend Starks for his actions. However, in order to continue appearing on television, Starks acquired a manager's license. On the September 2 episode of Collision, Starks challenged Steamboat to a Strap Match at All Out. Starks would then sign a contract that read "The Dragon vs. Ricky Starks". "The American Dragon" Bryan Danielson then made his return from injury, signing the contract instead of Steamboat, making a Strap Match between Starks and Danielson official for All Out.

At All In on August 27, Konosuke Takeshita, Jay White, and Juice Robinson faced Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi, and Adam Page. Takeshita would win the bout for his team after pinning Omega. During the media scrum following the show, Don Callis requested that Takeshita face Omega in a singles match, which AEW President Tony Khan made official for All Out.

After defeating Wheeler Yuta on the August 16 episode of Dynamite and pinning Claudio Castagnoli in the Stadium Stampede Match at All In on August 27, Orange Cassidy revealed that he wanted to face Yuta and Castagnoli's Blackpool Combat Club stablemate Jon Moxley. On the August 30 episode of Dynamite, Cassidy defeated Penta El Zero Miedo to retain the International Championship, allowing Cassidy to defend the title against Moxley at All Out.
