Wrestling fans worldwide are gearing up for AEW All In, which is set to take place at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on August 27th, 2023. As the anticipation builds, a veteran of the industry has suggested that the event's success is, in part, due to the influence of Vince McMahon.
McMahon has been a critical figure in the wrestling world for decades, and his impact on the industry is undeniable. While he stepped down from his position as CEO of WWE in July 2022, many fans believe that his influence still looms large over the company.
This theory gained traction when it was revealed that he had resumed control of the creative direction of WWE, leading to concerns from fans and insiders alike.

According to wrestling veteran Jim Cornette, McMahon's return has played a role in the popularity of AEW All In.
Speaking on his podcast, Cornette suggested that fans are "hate-buying" tickets to the event to show their frustration with WWE's creative decisions. He said that every time WWE looks like it's gaining the upper hand over AEW, something stops it.
Cornette's comments touch on a more significant issue within the industry: the ongoing "promotional war" between WWE and AEW. While both companies have their strengths and weaknesses, there's no denying that their competition has been fierce.
This has led to a lot of speculation and rumors about the industry's future, with fans and insiders eagerly anticipating what's next. Regardless of the reasons behind its success, there's no denying that AEW All In is shaping up to be a significant event in the wrestling world.
With its star-studded lineup and iconic location, it's sure to draw in fans worldwide. And while the impact of Vince McMahon may be a subject of debate, there's no denying that his influence on the industry as a whole will continue to be felt for years to come.
