AEW All Out 2020 was an uneven show, to say the least. A particularly nasty-looking bump early in the night and some controversial decisions soured the company’s biggest pay-per-view of the year. However, the women’s division delivered on Saturday night.
At Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, Britt Baker officially returned to action after she suffered a knee injury and underwent surgery to repair a deviated septum earlier this year She and Big Swole took part in a raucous cinematic match to open the show.
Later, Thunder Rosa made her AEW pay-per-view debut in possibly the biggest match of her career. The reigning NWA World Women’s Champion pushed Hikaru Shida to her limits in the best women’s match the company has produced to date.
There was a lot to like about this show. Unfortunately, some of the more salacious moments will be the talking points for most fans. At any rate, AEW continues to make progress with its highly-criticized women’s division
There’s still plenty of room for improvement but the women’s matches were the highlight of the night. Here are three takeaways from AEW All Out 2020.
