Masked 'joker' wins Casino ladder match at AEW All Out

The masked man aligned with Stokely Hathaway and won Sunday's PPV opener.

In a story that may play out before the night is over, the joker in the Casino ladder match that opened Sunday's AEW All Out won the bout while both never climbing the ladder and never revealing himself.

Just before time ran out for the joker spot, six fully masked men in black stormed the ring and took out the other competitors (Wheeler Yuta, Claudio Castagnoli, Rush, Penta El Zero Miedo, Dante Martin, Rey Fenix and Andrade).

One climbed to the top of the ladder, retrieved the poker chip, and revealed himself to be Stokely Hathaway. The rest of the group then revealed themselves to be the Gunn Club, Ethan Page, Lee Moriarty and W. Morrissey -- all recent Hathaway signings.

Hathaway then climbed down and as the time ran out for the joker, the Rolling Stones' Sympathy for the Devil played and a masked man, also in black and wearing a white devil mask, walked down to the ring and took the chip from Hathaway to officially win the match and a future AEW World title match.

Speculation on social media is that the masked man is MJF.
