Conrad Thompson's Ad Free Shows did a live show on Saturday afternoon in Chicago to raise money for Steve "Mongo" McMichael to help cover some of his medical costs as he battles ALS. If you would like to help Mongo, please donate at

Thompson was joined by Jeff Jarrett, Eric Bischoff, Tony Schiavone, Mick Foley, and Jim Ross and they told stories about their interactions with McMichael over the years.

Ross was asked by Thompson about the 15 matches (4 on the pre-show and 11 on the main card) planned for the AEW All Out pay-per-view.

Ross said, "Well, I think it's gonna be unpredictable because I don't know how you book this card. I don't know how you have a match on Wednesday and your champion gets his ass whipped like a government mule and then you expect to return it Sunday. Why do I need a return? You just got your ass whipped. So there's logical things we have to address, quite frankly. I think it's gonna be a challenging show for Tony Khan to book but it's loaded."

Ross also commented on the length of the show. He talked about the need to go to the bathroom during such a long show. He added, "Sitting out there with our group as it is, this is gonna be a 5-hour show. I'm not in favor of any 5-hour show. It's just too long. Our attention spans are not going to maintain what it needs to be. It's a chance for a lot talents to clear the deck and make a name for themselves."

Ross said Bryan Danielson and Chris Jericho could be the match of the year and he is excited for the show and he feels that tonight's PPV will be one of the strongest shows they have ever produced.
