AEW on TNT’s Twitter

Some news you may have missed from Tony Khan’s company over the last 24ish hours...

Aussie indie sensation Shazza McKenzie has been added to All Out’s Casino Battle Royale:

Can the Madison Eagles-trained wrestler earn a shot at becoming the first ever AEW Women’s champion on Oct. 2? McKenzie joins Allie, Awesome Kong, Big Swole, Brandi Rhodes, Britt Baker, Ivelisse, Jazz, Nyla Rose, Sadie Gibbs, Teal Piper, and Yuka Sakazaki in the 21 person match on on The Buy In pre-show.

Meanwhile, since they’re in Hoffman Estates, Illinois already, AEW announced they’ll return for their Thanksgiving eve TNT show. Tickets are already on sale for Nov. 27 at Sears Centre:

Last but not least, Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, and company will technically be making their TNT debut tonight (Fri., Aug. 30) when they get a special recapping the storylines for All Out. This savvy bit of promotion for both tomorrow’s pay-per-view (PPV) and October’s premiere from Washington, D.C. airs at 10PM EDT:

AEW is really going All Out, huh?

(Sorry, couldn’t resist)

(Not really sorry)
