We are just over a week away from the much-anticipated All In event, scheduled to take place at Wembley Stadium. This event is poised to become a monumental occasion in the history of All Elite Wrestling, potentially even surpassing records as the most highly attended paid professional wrestling show.
Despite the grandeur of the upcoming event, there have been noticeable delays in finalizing the match card, with only a few matches being confirmed in the past few weeks. This methodical and seemingly lackadaisical approach to building the card has not only caused frustration among fans but has also created a sense of unease within the AEW locker room.

One wrestler shared their discontent with SEScoops, revealing,“A lot… are upset about Wembley,” one wrestler told SEScoops. “Maybe if it were just Wembley, it would be different. But with everything that’s happened over the last year, it’s becoming the one major issue. People want to know if they’re going to London, what the card is going to be… it’s a show everyone wants to be on. It’s like our WrestleMania 3, or maybe our WrestleMania 1, but there isn’t any urgency. People are scared we aren’t going to live up to this moment.”
Another source, quoted in the same report, acknowledged that some patience is warranted for AEW President and head booker Tony Khan. However, they also understood the frustration expressed by fans:
“He said (in the presser just after) Forbidden Door that (Wembley) would be a card that would take time to build,” another AEW employee said. “He said this was going to be the case, so I’m not sure why everyone is disgruntled about it. I get the fans, but Bryan Danielson would have likely been in the main event or in the top of the card somewhere, then he breaks his arm the same night Tony said this, so it was already a factor before anyone knew how bad he was hurt. That caused a huge change in plans. Tony even said, injuries are going to make this like the first Forbidden Door show when things developed and were scheduled late, and that’s been the case.”
