The butcher returned to AEW at All Out 2021, where he teamed up with his stablemates from the Hardy Family Office to attack Orange Cassidy.

At the pre-show of the pay-per-view, The Buy-In, Orange Cassidy, Wheeler Yuta, Chuck Taylor and Jurassic Express defeated Matt Hardy, Private Party and TH2.

Though the outcome of the game delighted Chicago fans, the return of The Butcher and the subsequent attack on Cassidy resulted in boos pouring down on the crowd.

The Butcher even threatened to cut Orange Cassidy’s hair off, although The Dark Order came out in time to prevent it.

The Butcher was last seen on AEW at the very first promotion house show on April 9th, The House Always Wins, where he unsuccessfully challenged then TNT champion Darby Allin. The butcher sustained a hand injury during the game that left him out of action for months.

Now that he’s back and reunited with his tag team partner The Blade, the two could argue with Orange Cassidy and Best Friends depending on how things went at All Out.

AEW All Out 2021 could have some surprises in store

The Butcher’s return to AEW at All Out 2021 was the first surprise of the evening, although it certainly won’t be the last. Daniel Bryan is widely expected to make his debut for Tony Khan’s promotion on pay-per-view, with recent reports strongly suggesting it.

That being said, the rumored debuts of Adam Cole and Ruby Soho (Ruby Riott) could also go down on the show. Soho is expected by many to be a surprising entrant in the Women’s Casino Battle Royale.
