AEW is gearing up to become a legitimate alternative in pro wrestling. This will include a lot of traveling around for non-televised house shows.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the current plan for All Elite Wrestling is to run 100 to 120 live events every year. This includes four pay-per-view events as well as 51 television shows. It was also noted that Saturday night will be their weekly choice to run house shows, but they might run two in a week at times.
AEW won’t be working every star on every show either. It is reported that “the idea that in spreading the talent out, the top talent does maybe 75 matches, a number hopeful to keep their ability to work great matches.”
Let’s see how attendance pans out for All Elite Wrestling’s house shows. As their television show on TNT picks up an audience, it might be interesting to see how many fans in local markets they will be able to draw. It looks like they’re going big and not just running on television and pay-per-view either. Because AEW could be coming to your town soon enough.
