The first-ever AEW World Champion will be decided at All Out, the nascent promotion’s next major show, on August 31 when Chris Jericho takes on Adam “Hangman” Page. The news was confirmed today on All Elite Wrestling’s Twitter account.

This match was set up at last week’s Double or Nothing event, when “Hangman” Page won the Casino Battle Royale to earn himself a spot to face off against the winner of Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega, which was ultimately won by Jericho. Wrestling legend Bret “Hitman” Hart was on hand at the event to show off the new AEW World Championship, and to promote the upcoming match to decide its first champion.
All Out will take place August 31 at the Sears Centre in Chicago, nearly one year to the day after All In, the precursor to All Elite Wrestling.
