AEW will make history this Sunday, Aug. 27 as the promotion hosts its first show outside

North America with “AEW: All In London” at Wembley Stadium in front of a record-breaking

crowd. The launch of AEW: Fight Forever’s Stadium Stampede mode comes at the perfect time as the Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta) and Santana & Ortiz will take on Eddie Kingston, Orange Cassidy, Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta) and Penta El Zero Miedo in the pay-per-view’s epic “Stadium Stampede” match.

“The concept for the first-ever Stadium Stampede match was created during the lockdown,

where a display of professional wrestling bedlam like never before took place in an empty

Jacksonville stadium and became a staple of AEW during the pandemic era. Now, this iconic

five-on-five match returns on AEW ALL IN, the biggest night in professional wrestling history

with the first-ever international Wembley Stadium Stampede in London this Sunday,” said AEW CEO, GM and Head of Creative Tony Khan. “AEW: Fight Forever will also bring the chaos of Stadium Stampede to gamers, incorporating the rapidly-surging popularity of open world multiplayer gaming with the unique gameplay we’ve developed in partnership with THQ and YUKE’s. This is just the first of many innovations we’ll make to AEW: Fight Forever to continue elevating the gaming experience for our fans around the world.”
