Indoor Mask Mandate Issued For Illinois Ahead Of All Out

Because of a new mask mandate issued in Illinois, fans attending All Out in the NOW Arena on September 5 will have to wear masks.

Earlier today (August 26), Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced a new indoor mask mandate for the state of Illinois.  Making his stance on masks clear, Pritzker said:

“Illinois will join several other states that have reinstituted state-wide indoor mask requirements, regardless of vaccination status, effective on Monday.

“Masks work. Period.”

It was noted that a similar mandate had previously been announced for Chicago, but now the rest of the state will follow suit.

At All Out, Kenny Omega will defend his AEW World Championship against Christian Cage. Also at the event, CM Punk will wrestle his first official match in 7 years against Darby Allin.

Here is the current line-up for All Out:

Kenny Omega vs. Christian Cage – AEW World Championship

Britt Baker vs. Kris Statlander – AEW Women’s Championship

The Young Bucks vs TBD – AEW Tag Team Championship

Chris Jericho vs MJF – If Jericho loses, he will never wrestle for AEW again.
