That could change things. The Coronavirus has shaken up the entire world and that is likely to continue to be the case for a long time to come. The wrestling world has certainly not escaped the changes, as there have been several adjustments made throughout the industry. Things have been getting back to normal, but one upcoming major show will be dealing with a change of its own.

According to NBC Chicago, Illinois Governor J. B. Prtizker has issued a state wide indoor mask mandate regardless of someone’s vaccination status. This means that fans will be required to wear a mask at AEW All Out, which takes place on September 5 in Chicago, Illinois. There is no word on what will happen if a fan refuses to comply with the new mandate.

AEW is worth the extra effort. Check out some of the build towards All Out:

The First Ever AEW Rampage Match Is Set: Kenny Omega vs Christian Cage | AEW Dynamite, 8/11/21

CM Punk Speaks for the First Time Ever in AEW | AEW Rampage: The First Dance, 8/20/21

Opinion: I know it is going to get on some people’s nerves and it might not be the most pleasant thing in the world but this is the kind of thing that can help slow down the virus. Wearing a mask is hardly the worst thing in the world and while I’m sure a lot of people won’t have one on during the show, at least some people will do so and it helps out a little bit here and there.
