Punk has been away after getting surgery on his foot with the belief he won’t be out of action for much longer, while Danielson has an unknown injury, although it’s believed to be a concussion.
As previously reported, Omega is hoping to be back in time for All Out, and the promotion already has tentative plans for him at this show. He’s been away since last November and has undergone several surgeries to fix various injuries.
While speaking on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that AEW hopes they will have the stars mentioned above back in time for the PPV on Labor Day Weekend.
“I mean, he’s [Omega] hoping to be at All Out, but it’s too soon to say that he will or he won’t. He’s hoping for it. I mean, that’s kind of the target right now. The Chicago show, I think, is the target for that, I think it’s the target for Punk, but I don’t know that either of them are sure things.
Also, it’s probably the target for Danielson, too. All those guys coming back would probably give them a shot in the arm, but Omega basically was, he doesn’t want to talk about it, and nothing’s for sure but he would like to be back for that show. That would be a good idea.”
