Last year’s ALL IN event was promoted as the largest independent wrestling event of all time. Drawing over 10,000 fans it was the largest audience for any event outside the WWE or WCW since 1993.
The masterminds behind the show, Cody and The Young Bucks unfortunately do not own the rights to the footage.
According to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ring of Honor owns the rights to the ALL IN footage.
Pro Wrestling Torch reports that All Elite Wrestling is now attempting to purchase the footage from Ring Of Honor, but the asking price is too high according to those familiar with the negotiations.
Joe Koff spoke with Wrestlezone last August explaining that it wasn’t a Ring Of Honor event, and they were there strictly in a supporting role for the event, despite the latest reports that Ring Of Honor owns the footage
It’s not a Ring of Honor event, it’s an All In event. I always like to make sure we say that because Ring of Honor’s involvement is really a part of the Ring of Honor DNA and the fabric of our organization.
Ring Of Honor did assist with the production of the event, including camera’s, production equipment, and the ring that was used inside the Sears Centre in Chicago.
ALL IN reportedly did 55,000 PPV buys , which includes traditional PPV orders, and streaming according to Dave Meltzer.
Due to The Young Bucks and Cody being under contract with Ring Of Honor at the time of the event, they may have signed over some rights to the footage.
All Elite Wrestling is rumored to be holding a second ALL IN event in Chicago this fall titled “All Elite Wrestling: ALL OUT”, which they filed a trademark for last November.
