A slight technicality this, but such a fun dual entry that it’s worth revisiting all the same.

There simply couldn’t have been an All Elite Wrestling launch in 2019 without an All In one-off special a year prior. Or, there could have been, but the specific shape of it might have been wildly different without such a polished and prominent proof-of-concept.
