AEW

What a show! was advertised as the long-awaited return of CM Punk, and we got that — and much more. Among the many surprises on the show were Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson (formerly known as Daniel Bryan), who made their AEW debuts after the main event.

The show went off the air with Danielson clearing the ring of The Elite. Among the night’s other highlights was the Christian versus Omega main event, Jericho defeating MJF and a tag team cage match which many will call one of the best of all time. Oh yeah — and CM Punk beat Darby Allin in a fantastic return.

We also got a surprise appearance by New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Minoru Suzuki, and Ruby Soho (formerly known as Ruby Riott). Scroll down to find a full recap of AEW All Out 2021.

Daniel Bryan is All Elite (and so is Adam Cole)

After Kenny Omega defeated Christian, Omega’s Elite faction came to the ring and started beating down Christian. Jurassic Express cames to help, but they get beat down too. The damn numbers game! Omega grabs the mic and talks himself up as the best in the world — and then the lights go off and Adam Cole’s music hits.

He comes to the ring to confront The Elite but — swerve! — he superkicks Jungle Boy. Omega laughs and says Cole is one of his best friends, then hands the mic over to Cole to cut a promo. When Omega takes the mic back, he bids the crowd goodnight — but then Bryan’s music hits.

Bryan comes in and half of the Elite leave the ring. We get a staredown between Omega and the Bucks on one side and Bryan, Jurassic Express and Christian on another. Fisticuffs pop off, and Bryan hits his flying knee on Nick Jackson. He poses with the good guys to end the show


Kenny Omega retains AEW Championship

In All Out 2021’s main event, Kenny Omega pinned Christian with a One Winged Angel off the top rope to retain his AEW Championship.

Order deteriorated quickly, with Omega beginning the match by attempting a surprise V-Trigger knee on Christian while the ref was talking to Christian. Christian dodged and, before you knew it, was flying off the top rope to tumble onto Omega on the outside. Minutes later, Omega placed a table atop Christian and jumped on top to break it — while Don Callis distracted the ref, of course. A table was then set up properly for later.

Things slowed down after that, allowing the crowd to catch its breath, still reeling after the Punk match. Things got dramatic when Omega hit three Dragon Suplexes on Christian. Omega then obliterated him with a V-Trigger, causing Christian to spill outside to the apron. On said apron, detik Omega tried to put Christian through the previously set-up table with a One Winged Angel, but Christian countered and speared Omega through it.
