AEW had plans to tour the country in 2020, but the pandemic got in their way. The company is hitting the road again in July, and that will mean they can get back to hitting locations that they couldn’t get to before.
The company announced that they will finally make their New York City debut on September 22nd. That Wednesday show will consist of a live Dynamite taping at the Arthur Ashe Tennis Stadium in Flushing, New York.
Tony Khan made the announcement this morning on WFAN Radio. The event will have a special name as well, “Dynamite Grand Slam.” This will go along with the tennis theme that the stadium has.
This will be the first time that AEW will produce a show in New York State. They had plans to run Rochester last year, but that show was one of the first to fall victim to pandemic cancellations. That show was also set to be Brodie Lee’s debut for the company and he debuted in Daily’s Place instead.
Many stars are from that area including Eddie Kingston, MJF, Santana, Ortiz, Alex Reynolds, John Silver, Max Caster, Kris Statlander, Beretta and many more. Tickets will go on sale on July 16th. They might go very fast.
