The All Elite Wrestling media conference call offered us a ton of information today. One tidbit of information we got was an update on the rights to the original ALL IN event.
The Wrestling Observer reported that Cody mentioned AEW hasn’t spoken to Ring of Honor about getting the rights to the event. However, the naming rights to the show are owned by the Young Bucks and Dana Massie (Mrs. Matt).
The following is the tweet from the Observer:
Cody says they haven't talked to ROH about getting rights to the original All In, but they have a good relationship there. Mentions ROH doesn't own the name, but Bucks/Dana Massie to do. He's been focused on AEW, but could happen in the future. ^JN

Cody mentioned that AEW has a good relationship with Ring of Honor but they have not been focused on getting the rights to the show.
ALL IN is a complicated event as it featured talent from multiple companies. New Japan Pro Wrestling, Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling were all instrumental in providing talent for the show.
That being said, the event was integral to the creation of AEW and being able to use footage from the event would be helpful with promotion.
