Ever since the demise of WCW back in the year 2001, no other North American wrestling company or event has been able to compete with the WWE. For a while TNA Wrestling was doing well for itself, but sadly the company is no longer as good as it used to be since most of its biggest stars are in WWE now.

Well the wrestling landscape is about to change this weekend with the highly anticipated "All In" wrestling show this weekend on September 1st. This is a self funded wrestling show presented by Cody and The Young Bucks.

The significance of the show is huge because it's the first non WCW and WWE North American event since 1994 to have a show with at least 10,000 people in the arena.

Demand for the show was high since all 10,000 tickets were gobbled up in less than 30 minutes before the entire card was even announced.

Another milestone this event carries is that it will put the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) promotion on the map again. For the past few years, the NWA had been an afterthought in the wrestling industry and its history almost forgotten.

However thanks to Smashing Pumpkin's Billy Corgan, the NWA is slowly gaining the prestige it once carried several years ago.

The current NWA champion is Nick Aldis and he will defend the title in the main event of 'All In' against Dusty Rhodes' son Cody in a match that could steal the show.

Other names on the card are wrestlers from ROH, New Japan and more as the show will include Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Kota Ibushi and even Rey Mysterio and actor Stephen Amell! This show is proof that wrestlers can make a decent living without needing to be signed by the WWE.

Sure the WWE is still the biggest wrestling company in the world, but 'All In' is historic because it proves that the wrestling industry is far from dead.

WWE may have to watch out in the near future if its competitors are able to rise up and be as competitive as WCW once was back in the day!
