I'm ALL IN ....Are you?

Professional wrestling history is being made this weekend. For the first time in modern American history, an independent company outside of WWE will be presenting a show to a sold-out crowd of 10,000 diehard wrestling fans. The thing is, it’s not some big shot money making promoter with a grand vision, it’s three hard working wrestlers behind it all – Cody Rhodes, and Nick and Matt Jackson aka The Young Bucks. 

The event is called ALL IN and if you’re even a casual fan of pro wrestling, it’s impossible to check your Twitter, Instagram or Facebook timeline without seeing promotion for it. It’s all going down this weekend at the Sears Center just outside of Chicago.  On Saturday, September 1st, Rhodes and the Jacksons are teaming up with Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling for this major event. How major? Major enough to sell out 10,000+ tickets in less than 30 minutes? Major enough to get the IGN Network to air its pre-show. Major enough to be available on pay-per-view worldwide. Major enough to book an entire pro wrestling fan expo and podcast convention, “Starrcast”, around the event. 

The wrestling on the card is almost an afterthought at this point. The event sold out before any single match was announced. The name is a perfect fit for the event, as the team of Rhodes and the Young Bucks laid down the challenge and declared themselves ALL IN. From there, it was almost a rally cry for the fans of The Bullet Club and independent wrestling as a whole to make this thing a success. In order for events like this to continue, this thing needed to do well. At this point, there’s no way it doesn’t. All eyes are on ALL IN this weekend and it’s going to be an insane show.
