Matt Sydal makes AEW debut in Casino Battle Royale at All Out


Matt Sydal made his AEW debut as part of the Casino Battle Royale at tonight's All Out pay-per-view.

Sydal was the mystery entrant in tonight's battle royal. He entered as the final participant and made it to the final three of the match before being eliminated by Eddie Kingston.

After Sydal entered, there was an unfortunate moment where he slipped on the top rope when going for a Shooting Star Press on Will Hobbs. Sydal looked to be uninjured after the slip.

Lance Archer eliminated Kingston to win the Casino Battle Royale. Archer will get a shot at the AEW World Championship at some point in the future. AEW World Champion Jon Moxley is defending his title against MJF at All Out tonight.

Trent Barreta, Christopher Daniels, Jake Hager, The Blade, Fenix, Frankie Kazarian, Hobbs, Chuck Taylor, Santana, Ortiz, Billy Gunn, Penta El Zero M, Brian Cage, Ricky Starks, Darby Allin, Shawn Spears, Kingston, The Butcher, Sonny Kiss, Archer, and Sydal were the entrants in the Casino Battle Royale.

Sydal, who has wrestled for WWE (as Evan Bourne), Impact Wrestling, ROH, NJPW, and more throughout his career, has also been announced as appearing for ROH as one of the participants in their Pure title tournament. Sydal is facing Delirious in the first round. The tournament will begin airing on ROH television next weekend.
