AEW was the first major pro wrestling company to announce a return to touring. They revealed the first three live shows and started selling tickets on Friday. How has that turned out for them so far?
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that no AEW event has sold out yet. The Miami event very well could be a sell-out, and the two events in Texas could follow. The last time the company went to Texas they saw a very good turn-out.
“Tickets were put on sale for three shows on Friday. They did not sell out instantly, although Miami was basically, Miami maybe sold out already. It was like 200 tickets shy of a sell-out the last time I looked, but it’s a very small building and it should have sold out. The other two, I think that they were, the Garland, Texas and the Dallas, Texas, I think that they were like in the 25 — one of them was 2,700 and the other one, which is Dallas was over 2,000. So, I guess for the first day, for the first couple of hours they’re solid. These are two markets that they sold out the first time they were in.”
AEW will likely get a lot of interest as they take their show on the road. Many areas of the United States haven’t seen any kind of touring show for over a year. It is time for All Elite Wrestling to change that.
We will continue monitoring AEW’s efforts to return to the road. Plenty of fans are very excited to see their city’s name appear in an upcoming announcement.
