They said it could never happen, that a bunch of “indie” wrestlers could have their own event and sell out, for lack of a better term, but it’s happening. The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega and company have sold out All In in under 30 mins and are now getting ready for the biggest event in wrestling that doesn’t have the letters WWE in front of it. On September 1st, 2018 at the Sears Centre in Chicago.
Fans for 10 to 20 years ago couldn’t even have thought up that a bunch indie wrestlers could start such a revolution in wrestling where fans of all kinds would be watching not only the WWE, but Ring of Honour, Impact, NJPW, and in the eyes of the fans and wrestlers alike have them commit with such a big business company like the WWE. To even imagine that these same wrestlers would put on their own show, with their own money and have it sell it would never have been imaginable…till now. While people may credit Cody Rhodes for drawing the average wrestling fans eyes to ROH or NJPW which is partially true. It is really The Young Bucks who with their Youtube channel, t-shirt sales, partnering with HotTopic, having their own Funko pops and just being damn good wrestlers have created this competition against the WWE.
Yes, I said it and I believe that it is true. The Young Bucks, wherever they go, whoever joins The Elite, what promotion they are on they become instant competition for the WWE. Now, having made a successful attempt and turned their dreams into reality with ALL IN they have put their metaphorical flag in the ground and stated that there is such thing as a career outside the WWE, there is such thing as a career after the WWE, as Cody has shown time and time again. You can make waves in another country and still have the buzz around you like you’re wrestling in North America like Kenny Omega and Marty Scrull have shown.
With the success of ALL IN with the likes of DDP, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan all appearing and tweeting about it has finally shown that the WWE has competition. It’s not in the form of another promotion, but in the form of a bunch of guys who love wrestling as much as the fans do. And if you’ve seen any of these wrestlers wrestle you know how good the show will be and why the WWE finally has met its match.
