Rolling Stone is featuring an interview with Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks discussing the trio coming up with the idea to book an independent wrestling event with the goal to fill a 10,000 seat arena for the upcoming “All In” event on September 1.
Rhodes and the Bucks talk about how the concept stemmed from an online interaction with The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer who didn’t think ROH could sellout a 10,000 seat arena. Rhodes accepted the bet and the Bucks jumped on board with the idea.
We reported last night that the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates (just outside Chicago) was announced as the location for the event on September 1. Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Stephen Amell of “Arrow”, Hangman Page, Marty Scurll, Tessa Blanchard and more names to be announced are currently booked.
Ticket information is said to be forthcoming per a new tweet today.
