In a historic move, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is gearing up for its maiden voyage across the Atlantic. As the month progresses, the company will grace the UK with its electrifying wrestling experience. However, two of its brightest English luminaries will unfortunately be sidelined due to injuries.
Anticipation is palpable, as nearly 80,000 tickets have already been scooped up for AEW's All In at the iconic Wembley Stadium. Positioned to be the grandest professional wrestling spectacle in UK history, All In is set to host a galaxy of wrestling legends like MJF, CM Punk, and Kenny Omega.
Yet, the jubilation is tinged with a hint of disappointment for the fervent English enthusiasts. Their own wrestling champions, Jamie Hayter and PAC, will not be entering the ring in London.
Injury Sidelines Hayter and PAC
As per insider information from Fightful Select, former AEW Women's World Champion, Jamie Hayter, and the one-time AEW World Trios Champion, PAC, won't get the medical green light to compete at All In.
Hayter's hiatus from the ring dates back to May when she ceded her championship belt to Toni Storm at the Double or Nothing event. While there weren't any definitive plans charted out for her at Wembley, AEW's brass was holding out hope that she'd be fit to compete.
At 28, Hayter is grappling with injuries that will, unfortunately, bench her for the rest of the year. Meanwhile, PAC had just re-emerged on the AEW scene after a prolonged break, making a notable appearance in the "Blood and Guts" match.
His shocking alliance shift from Blackpool Combat Club, along with starting a rivalry with Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli, kept fans riveted. According to Fightful, plans for PAC's inclusion at All In were in the works before an unforeseen injury intervened.
Post his July 19 comeback, PAC had showcased his mettle in a pair of singles matches. Yet, even in the absence of PAC and Hayter, AEW's monumental event won't be devoid of local flair. Wrestling aficionados can eagerly await the addition of UK's very own Saraya and Will Ospreay to the All In roster, as their participation is anticipated to be confirmed in the ensuing weeks.
