Top Star PULLED From AEW All In, More Changes Coming!

Another wrestler is OUT of AEW All In, with more changes to possibly follow.

Tony Khan All In

Rey Fenix is reportedly OUT of AEW All In this Sunday (27 August) - and company founder and CEO Tony Khan has stated that regrettably, more card changes could be on the way.

Fightful Select reported on Tuesday that Fenix will no longer compete in All In's Stadium Stampede match. AEW plans on explaining Rey's non-participation, with Fightful stating that while this hasn't been confirmed, it has been suggested to the outlet that the high-flyer's issues are "travel or visa related."


Fenix was due to team with Penta El Zero Miedo, Edde Kingston, Orange Cassidy, and Best Friends against the Blackpool Combat Club and three others TBC. Whether AEW will adjust the Stadium Stampede or replace Fenix outright isn't clear.

During his pre-All In media scrum on Tuesday, Khan confirmed that he expects more changes to the All In card due to "things happening in the real world" (h/t Wrestling Observer, Figure Four Online):

"I expect more changes. They were not changes I wanted to make or planned to make. There will probably be some changes to the card necessitated by things happening in the real world, stuff in some cases that is nobody's fault, but stuff that is not related to the world of professional wrestling."

Khan added that he intends on working on possible card improvements throughout the week - and he doesn't believe the show's quality will be impacted. More will be explained after All In, but Khan stated that he didn't even have as long as a week or two to prepare for these alterations.

Bryan Danielson, PAC, and Jamie Hayter are amongst the list of wrestlers already ruled out of All In.
