Predicting the AEW All Out 2022 Match Card and Winners

All Out 2022 is fast approaching on September 4, and even without any matches officially announced yet, it's shaping up to be another extraordinary event for All Elite Wrestling.

Following a two-month absence, AEW world champion CM Punk made his return to Dynamite last week and confronted interim titleholder Jon Moxley. That seemed to set the stage for the show's main event, which should be confirmed for the card as early as this Wednesday.

Also at All Out, two teams will collide to crown the first-ever AEW world trios champions. Anything can change in the coming weeks, but seeds have been planted for who will be in the finals of the tournament.

With AEW boasting such a stacked roster at the moment, it's not possible for every notable name to be included. Tay Conti and Ruby Soho will likely settle their score on TV before then, and there's been no indication who Wardlow could defend his AEW TNT Championship against other than Satnam Singh.

So, our projected card for All Out will not include those talents or anyone involved with Ring of Honor, though it's possible they'll be featured in some form or fashion.

These are 10 matches fans can expect to see and predictions for who will win.

1 of 10

When Jon Moxley beat Hiroshi Tanahashi to become the AEW interim world champion at Forbidden Door on June 26, it was always a matter of when, not if, CM Punk would return and a undisputed champ would be determined.

Moxley has been booked to look strong in Punk's absence and has carried the title proudly. There was no other obvious opponent for him at All Out if The Best in the World wasn't cleared to compete in time, not to mention that the PPV is emanating from Punk's native Chicago.

Although both men were previously headliners in WWE, they never had a chance to face each other all that much during their time there. Punk and Moxley (then known as Dean Ambrose) had only two televised singles matches, and both men are far from the same competitors today that they were then.

The buildup to this bout will be extra interesting, if only for the fiery promos we're guaranteed to get. This second stint as champ has made up for Moxley's last run that had to happen without fans in attendance due to the pandemic, but Punk emerging victorious at All Out is what needs to happen.

Punk is the person to hold the gold through the remainder of the year as we await the inevitable reemergence of MJF.

Next to Punk vs. Moxley, this is another outing that can be considered a lock for All Out at this point (barring injury) and should be added to the card on Wednesday's Dynamite.

Last week, Eddie Kingston challenged Sammy Guevara to a match at the PPV and the three-time TNT champion has yet to accept.

Their bad blood stems from Kingston tossing Guevara off the top of the cage at Blood and Guts, and The Spanish God subsequently costing his rival his match against Chris Jericho.

This is the definition of a grudge feud that doesn't need anything on the line to feel like an attraction. Kingston is beloved as a babyface and Guevara has been better as a heel in recent months despite his act with Tay Melo not doing him many favors thus far.

It always seems as if Kingston can never win whenever it matters most. His last big singles victory came against Jericho at Revolution in March, and he should win in his clash with Guevara at All Out.

Toni Storm first faced Thunder Rosa for the AEW Women's World Championship at Forbidden Door. Although she was unsuccessful, she looked credible in defeat and proved to be a formidable threat to the title.

Storm has remained in hot pursuit of the prestigious prize while also forming a friendship with Rosa. Collectively known as 'ThunderStorm.' they have run rampant over the women's division while also watching their own backs.

Rosa is fresh off a title defense against Jamie Hayter at Battle of the Belts III and has no challenger waiting in the wings other than Storm, who is the No. 1 contender to either the AEW Women's World Championship or the TBS Championship, according to the rankings.

A rematch has to be brewing, otherwise there's no point to them continuing to team up. If and when that bout comes to fruition, Storm taking the title would be the best way to shake things up in the women's scene since no one else is remotely ready for that spot.

On paper, House of Black appear to be a heavy favorite to win the entire AEW World Trios Championship Tournament.

Malakai Black, Brody King and Buddy Matthews been undefeated as a unit since coming together earlier this year and have exceptional chemistry together.

However, putting House of Black in the finals at All Out would be ignoring their ongoing issues with Miro, who has had his sights set on the group for weeks.

Miro aligning with the trio has been teased, but it's much more likely he opposes them at All Out instead. Darby Allin and Sting are also embroiled in a rivalry with House of Black, so a six-man tag team match is a strong possibility.

If the heels fail to become AEW world trios champions, they arguably shouldn't be losing to three men who don't typically team, so House of Black winning this one feels more appropriate.

5 of 10

If House of Black are busy with Miro, Darby Allin and Sting at All Out, it only makes sense for The Dark Order to win the right side of the bracket in the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament instead.

They have been greatly deemphasized over the last year and haven't won a match that matters on TV since late last year. So, predicting they'll advance to the finals sounds like a bit of a stretch, but not when you consider 'Hangman' Adam Page will be in their corner.

Page may not be in action at the show, but he should have a presence on the PPV and this accomplishes that, especially if their opponents end up being the original Elite: Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.

They, too, should be in the finals given the story AEW is telling right now with them, Page, and Undisputed Elite's Adam Cole and reDRagon. Cole and Kyle O'Reilly still may not be cleared by September 4, so there's no need to rush into that major matchup just yet.

Making The Elite the inaugural champs may seem self-serving to some, but they are among the best trios AEW has, and it would set them up for a huge championship clash with Undisputed Elite later down the line.

Immediately following Jade Cargill's AEW TBS Championship defense at Double or Nothing in May, it became clear Athena and Kris Statlander were both next in line for a shot at the title.

That night marked Athena's debut and though she's built up plenty of momentum since then, Statlander was also on a roll before suffering another knee injury last week that will keep her out of action for the foreseeable future.

AEW appeared to be building toward a three-way match before Statlander was sidelined, but doing Cargill vs. Athena one-on-one works just as well. They should have a terrific dynamic in the ring, and Athena having a real chance of handing Cargill her first loss makes the outcome unpredictable.

Athena taking the title would make for a memorable moment, but Statlander getting hurt may have caused plans to change. Expect Cargill to retain as AEW figures out what the endgame will be with her. Athena can always win in a rematch if that's the route it decides to take.

7 of 10

Jungle Boy vs. Christian Cage was virtually guaranteed for All Out the moment Christian cemented his heel turn by betraying Jungle Boy in June. Their feud has produced plenty of tremendous moments since then.

The turn was a long time coming and the storyline has lived up to the hype so far. Jungle Boy has shown more confidence on the mic than ever before, Christian has portrayed the perfect heel, and Luchasaurus' role in the rivalry remains intriguingly unknown.

If All Out is going to mark their first one-on-one encounter, there would be nothing wrong in stretching out this storyline a little longer. That can be accomplished by having Christian cheat to win and to keep Jungle Boy chasing vengeance.

These two have been responsible for some of the best segments on Dynamite all summer, and their match is one of the most anticipated going into All Out. The storytelling has been simple yet stellar and the eventual payoff will be phenomenal.

8 of 10

Unlike Jungle Boy and Christian Cage, Powerhouse Hobbs turning on Ricky Starks on the July 27 edition of Dynamite came completely out of nowhere.

From a storyline standpoint, it made sense for Hobbs to be fed up with Team Taz's many losses this year, but a majority of the audience still didn't see it coming.

Starks solidified his status as a fan favorite with that development and the feud has been effectively furthered on Dynamite every week since then.

Neither of them have ever competed in a singles match on an AEW PPV, so hopefully that's about to change at All Out. As far as who wins, both could benefit massively from a victory as they look to begin building momentum in the singles ranks.

The contest could go either way and it wouldn't make much of a difference, but with Starks being so hot as a babyface already, he might be the better bet to come out on top.

9 of 10

As popular of a tandem as they are, Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland have little (if any) direction as AEW world tag team champions.

They beat the duo of Tony Nese and Josh Woods in the main event of Rampage two weeks ago, but there has been zero indication of which team will step up next to contend for the tag titles.

FTR have been the No. 1-ranked tag team in all of AEW for many months, but they haven't expressed interest in going for the gold on TV in a while. Since they're the reigning Ring of Honor tag team champs, it's more likely The Acclaimed get that spot instead.

They've gotten over massively with the AEW fans and deserve a shot at the straps at All Out. The match would feel a bit forced because it's coming together on a whim and there isn't much time left for the event, but it's hard to imagine an AEW PPV without the titles being defended when it has such a deep tag team division.

10 of 10

Bryan Danielson's return match on July 27 ended in shocking fashion when the hand of Daniel Garcia was raised at the end.

While not a totally clean win, it was still a gigantic career highlight for the 23-year-old. The two will meet one more time in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match on Wednesday's Dynamite, and the fact that it's on TV and not PPV is interesting.

That could mean that AEW has other plans for Danielson and Garcia at All Out. The leading theory among fans is that The American Dragon will face Chris Jericho on the show, with the winner earning the right to assign the youngster to their faction.

Jericho has nothing else going on following his latest loss to Jon Moxley and putting him in a program with Danielson is an excellent use of his talents.

If that ends up being the case, Bryan will clinch the victory (avenging Blackpool Combat Club's loss to Jericho Appreciation Society at Double or Nothing) and add a new member to his group's ranks.
