We might not know where the historic All In independent wrestling show will be streamed on, but thanks to a timely Friday afternoon news dump we do know who the voices behind that broadcast will be.
The folks behind All In 2018 announced on Twitter that the broadcast team for the Sept. 1 show from the Sears Centre Arena would consist of Alicia Atout, Cyrus, Ian Riccaboni, Sean freaking Mooney, Justin Roberts, Bobby Cruise and Excalibur. Continue through a post for a rundown of each All In broadcast member, and some key things to know about them.
We know that the Starrcast convention will be broadcast on FITE TV, but an official announcement for where All In will land has not been announced. It's clear that it will be broadcast, du doy, but we're still eagerly awaiting that!
"All In isn't about a bet. All In is about a feeling, a feeling that I have in common with Matt and Nick Jackson -- the Young Bucks. A feeling that we can go beyond … and break the status quo," Cody Rhodes said during a press conference earlier this year.
Those booked to appear at All In on Sept 1, include an insanely impressive list of Cody Rhodes, the Young Bucks, "Arrow's" Stephen Amell, Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada, Marty Scurll, Tessa Blanchard, Hangman Page, the Bullet Club, Jushin Liger, and so many more. Make sure to follow @Starrcast18 and @ALL_IN_2018 for updates.
What you need to know:
Alicia Atout: Atout was recently signed by Impact Wrestling to be its on-air television host. The 23-year-old if the host of the website AMBY, and she just continues to burst on the professional wrestling scene. For those looking for something recent, she killed this interview with wrestling's (current) most hated man, Switchblade Jay White:
Cyrus: Shoot, we kind of expected Cyrus on this team when the Young Bucks asked him what he was doing Sept. 1 during a New Japan Pro Wrestling broadcast. Don Callis is a color commentator for NJPW and ROH, and some might just remember him for his days as ECW on TNT network heel figurehead. I love his work, he knows the guys in the ring and is a no-brainer, no-surprise addition to this team.
Ian Riccaboni: The voice of Ring of Honor wrestling, Ian 100 percent absolutely had to be on this team for it to feel right. He's a great Twitter follower, and he knows the guys coming to All In inside and out.
Incredibly thankful to be a part of this group.— Ian Riccaboni (@IanRiccaboni) July 13, 2018
Think of the excellence among those depicted.
Current @ringofhonor, @IMPACTWRESTLING, @njpwglobal , & @OfficialPWG talent with the legacies made on some of the biggest stages. @ALL_IN_2018 is making history, folks. https://t.co/HKLnnQlOTK
Sean freaking Mooney: I can't say Sean's name without getting excited, because I am so glad he has been a part of this event and the wrestling podcast scene in general. Mooney, the host of the awesome podcast Prime Time with Sean Mooney, worked for the then-WWF from the late 1980s through the mid(ish) 1990s. He was a play-by-play man for the promotion's various taped shows, but he is cemented in history as the host of WWF's Coliseum Home Video collections.
Justin Roberts: Roberts was the WWE's ring announcer for more than a decade as he served as the voice of some of the biggest shows of the modern era. His voice brings a big-match feel to it, and his book he wrote after his WWE departure brings some talking points to Starrcast.

Excalibur: A fellow Detroit native, one of the six founders of PWG and its current play-by-play man. Excalibur is independent wrestling. Awesome grab here by All In. A familiar face that pairs nicely with the talent.
Bobby Cruise: This kind of goes with Cyrus and Ian, this event would feel weird without Bobby involved as he is the lead ring announcer for ROH. Not sure how he and Roberts will split or share duties, but this show is in good hands.
