All Out 2023 is in the books as AEW produced their second pay per view within two weeks. We saw CJ Perry debut and Christian Cage will also be sticking around.
All Out 2023 Fallout: CJ Perry Debuts, Christian Cage Re-Signs
After such a historic show for All In from England, AEW looked to keep going with yesterday’s All Out. For the most part, just about every match was booked within the last seven days and the promotion made it work.
During the show, fans saw Miro return to pay per view by defeating Powerhouse Hobbs. After the match, Hobbs would attack Miro until a familiar name appeared.
CJ Perry, known to most as WWE’s Lana, headed to the ring and hit Hobbs with a chair. While he barely budged, it allowed her husband, Miro, enough time to overpower the big man.
Afterwards, Miro seemed upset at what Perry was wearing. Already, it sounds like an angle WWE did with the same two wrestlers.
At the post-show media scrum, Tony Khan noted how Perry was not officially signed to an AEW contract.
“I think it’s great to have CJ here,” said Khan. “It’s not a long-term guaranteed thing or anything.”
“But, at least for tonight, it was great to have her appearing with us. And I thought it was a great surprise.”
Since being released by WWE, Perry has not wrestled. She has done some autograph signings, but remains busy with other projects.
Also at All Out 2023, Christian Cage helped Luchasaurus retain the TNT Championship. It was after the show where fans learned more about Christian’s future.
“I know I proved Tony Khan right because he just re-signed me to a big fat contract,” said Christian. “He opened the vault for me and I deserve every single penny that I got.”
Naturally, with Christian not leaving AEW, it will only increase speculation that Edge will soon be joining.
So, was All Out 2023 worth it or did AEW go overboard with a pair of pay per views within 14 days?
