All Elite Wrestling and the Chicago area has been synonymous with each another ever since the company was established on January 1, 2019 as the promotion has held a significant amount of major shows from the state. The All Out PPV Event has been a major event that AEW has been holding from inside the NOW Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois for a number of times and it looks like the 2022 All Out PPV Event will be no different despite the upcoming AEW and NJPW Forbidden Door Event set to take place on June 26th from the United Center in Chicago.
Fightful Select reports that this year’s All Out Event will still be held at the NOW Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, but there is no word yet on the specific date, though the All Out PPV has become a Labor Day Weekend tradition for the company. The report also states that despite speculation that All Out will be held in a different part of the country due to the AEW and NJPW Forbidden Door PPV taking place in Chicago on June 26, the event will still return to the Chicago area during the first week of September.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan, who was born and raised in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, has said that he likes the tradition of having AEW’s All Out Event remain in the Chicago area for Labor Day Weekend and that it is a tradition that will remain for years to come. The 2021 All Out PPV Event was held at the NOW Arena in Chicago, Illinois and was headlined by then-AEW World Champion Kenny Omega defending the AEW World Title against Christian Cage and the highly-anticipated in-ring return of the AEW World Champion CM Punk, who defeated Darby Allin.
