As seen during the September 2nd 2023 edition of AEW Collision, NBA legend and WCW celebrity wrestler Dennis Rodman made an appearance at the United Center in Chicago. Rodman was going to talk but was quickly interrupted by Team Jeff Jarrett.
Jarrett made an offer for Rodman to join his group. Rodman ultimately declined and The Acclaimed came down to the ring to event the odds. The Acclaimed (with Rodman in their corner) vs. Team Jarrett was made official for the 2023 All Out PPV.
