Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks’ “All In” show will officially be taking place in the Chicago area.
On an episode of Being the Elite that was released tonight, it was revealed that the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois will host All In on September 1st. It’s listed as an 11,800-seat venue, with varying capacities for different types of sports.
The idea for the show originated from a Twitter exchange between Cody and Dave Meltzer last May, with Cody taking it as a bet when Meltzer answered “not any time soon” when someone asked if Ring of Honor could sell out an arena with 10,000 fans. It was revealed in November that Cody and The Young Bucks would be self-financing the show and that it would be taking place in 2018.
September 1st was announced as the date earlier this year, and Chicago had been expected to be the location.
Cody, The Young Bucks, Marty Scurll, Hangman Page, Stephen Amell (of the show “Arrow”), Kenny Omega, and Tessa Blanchard have been confirmed for All In.
Amell was the person who made the announcement on Being the Elite after a bit where Cody, Matt & Nick Jackson, Scurll, and Page argued over who was going to do it. The full episode is available to watch below:
