Eddie Kingston returned to All Elite Wrestling during tonight’s AEW Dynamite after a month in Japan, and his return cleared up a number of question marks for AEW All In. Kingston came to the aid of Orange Cassidy, the Best Friends, and the Lucha Brothers against the Blackpool Combat Club. Successfully fending the BCC off, Kingston challenged the group to a match with a major stipulation.
“Wembley Stadium, boys,” Kingston said. “All In, boys. Us against whoever you can find in a Stadium Stampede match.”
It’s not yet entirely clear what the lineup for each team will be, as BCC member Bryan Danielson seems unlikely to return from injury in time, leaving the BCC at just three while the combined forces of the Best Friends, Lucha Brothers, and Kingston total six. It’s possible that Jon Moxley challenges Cassidy for the AEW International Championship, but in that case, the BCC would still need to find three additional partners to even the odds.
This will be AEW’s second Stadium Stampede match, with the first taking place during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in May 2020. The previous match featured Kenny Omega, “Hangman” Adam Page, the Young Bucks, and Matt Hardy taking on Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana, and Ortiz of the Inner Circle, with The Elite and Hardy picking up the win. That time around, the match took place in an empty stadium, which should stand in sharp contrast to the 80,000-plus expected at All In on August 27.
