All Elite Wrestling launched back on New Year's Day of this year, and since its inception, the company has held three events en route to All Out taking place over Labor Day weekend in Chicago.

So far, AEW has held its debut Double Or Nothing event in Las Vegas, Fyter Fest, and Fight For The Fallen, all of which have featured the major stars of AEW.

The heart of the matter

All Elite Wrestling has announced the first match for the premiere episode of AEW on TNT, and it will be AEW exec Cody facing Sammy Guevara in a singles match.

Cody appears to be excited about the match announcement, as he commented on the historic bout by tweeting, "I was excited this was the match selected. To have a young & hungry opponent who has no ceiling when it comes to pro-wrestling. Going forward not backwards."
