There’s still time. We are less than a day away from AEW All Out but that does not mean that the card needs to be entirely set. AEW has shown an ability to mix things up at the last second and that seems to be what they are doing again. They already had a large card set up, including a match on the Buy In, but things have been shuffled again, including a new match being added to the main card.
Earlier this week on AEW Dynamite, the Buy In match was set between Big Swole and Britt Baker. The match is being billed as Tooth vs. Nail, with a report saying that it will be shot cinematic style and will take place in Baker’s dental office. That sounds like an interesting match, but some fans did not seem pleased that it was taking place on the Buy In. Things have since been switched around a bit.
On Friday, AEW announced that Big Swole vs. Baker will still take place at All Out but on the main card rather than the Buy In. There will still be a match taking place on the Buy In, as Private Party will face Alex Reynolds and John Silver of the Dark Order. There is no word on why the change was made. The Buy In begins at 7pm EST while the pay per view card begins at 8pm.

This could be a good change. Check out what has been set up:
Opinion: I like the change as the Tooth vs. Nail match did not feel like something that belonged on the Buy In. Private Party vs. Dark Order is a match with no build or story and feels a lot more like a match that belongs on the pre-show. Both of them should be fun matches, but the Baker vs. Big Swole match has been set up for months now and is getting the chance it deserves.
What do you think of the change? Which match will be better? Let us know in the comments below.
