All Elite Wrestling (AEW) will present ALL IN 2 from the Sears Center outside Chicago, IL on Saturday, August 31st, according to the Wrestling Observer.
The report states the event was always going to be held in the Chicago area, but there was some preliminary talk about hosting it at the larger Allstate Arena. In the end, the promotion decided to bring All In back to the Sears Center.
“The Labor Day weekend All In 2, as it’s being called, will be on 8/31 back at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates, IL,” wrote Dave Meltzer.
This would mark the third official event under the AEW banner. Here is an updated look at the AEW live event schedule, including this rumored show:
- 5/25: AEW Double or Nothing (Las Vegas, NV)
- 7/13: AEW Fight for the Fallen (Jacksonville, FL)
- 8/31: AEW ALL IN 2 (Hoffman Estates, IL)
It’s worth noting that AEW trademarked the name ALL OUT last year, so that might be the name of the show.

There were also reports from C2E2 this weekend that the Bucks and Omega were telling people at the expo they would return to Chicago for All In 2.
The Sears Center honored its involvement in the first All In by placing a plaque outside the venue. The Young Bucks showed the plaque on a recent episode of Being the Elite.
The first All In event aired on ROH’s Honor Club for subscribers on September 1st, 2018.
By the time All In 2 rolls around, Jim Ross might be with AEW. JR provided an update on his negotiations with the promotion recently.
