All Out also saw the debut of former WWE superstar Evan Bourne (now Matt Sydal) in the Casino Battle Royal. However, it wasn’t a dream start to the career of the high-flying sensation.

Sydal walked into the Casino Battle Royal as a surprise and the final entrant. As soon as he entered the match, he tried one of his signature moves.

The new AEW recruit climbed up the rope to deliver his famous shooting star press. Unfortunately, as he was about to to deliver, he slipped off the top turnbuckle and crashed to the canvas on his back.

To everyone’s good luck, Sydal didn’t get any serious injuries. The former United States champion also made it to the final three alongside Eddie Kingston and winner Lance Archer.

Post the event, Sydal took to Twitter to react to this botch. He also thanked AEW for making him a part of All Out.

Impact star calls out fans for making fun of Matt Sydal’s botch on his AEW debut

Sydal is using the shooting star press from Adam’s time and hence, fans never expected him to botch the move he does best. However, mistakes remind us that professional wrestlers are also humans. But when Sydal made the mistake, wrestling fans pounced on him.

Impact Wrestling knockout Jordynne Grace took to Twitter to shut down all the trolls. Sydal and Grace were colleagues in Impact Wrestling during 2018-2019.

It is still unclear whether Sydal signed a one-time deal with the company or he has completely devoted himself to Tony Khan’s promotion.
