All Elite Wrestling announced two more names for the AEW All Out Casino Battle Royale that will be happening as part of the Buy In Kick-Off show for the AEW PPV on August 31. Earlier this month, former 2x WWE Women’s Champion and NWA Women’s World Champion Jazz, Lucha Underground star and former 2x Shine Champion Ivelisse, and recent Women of Wrestling (WOW) signee Teal Piper (daughter of Rowdy Roddy Piper) were announced as the first three entrants in the 21-woman battle royal, where the winner will become the #1 contender to the inaugural AEW Women’s Champion, to be crowned at the first TNT show on October 2, 2019. Two days ago, AEW also announced that Britt Baker, who was injured at Fight for the Fallen, was medically cleared and would also be taking part in the Battle Royal.

With the casino themed battle royal, every entrant will select a card from the deck. The five women who draw a Hearts will be one group, all the Spades another, etc., until there are four teams of five women (Hearts, Spades, Clubs & Diamonds). The woman who draws the “Lucky 21” (Joker) Card, will enter the Battle Royal last, for a total of 21 entrants into the Battle Royal. On Tuesday, two more names were entered into the battle royal, bringing the number to six announced names out of the 21.
