Since its inception in 2019, AEW has strived to provide a proper alternative product to WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded but there are still many areas of improvement.
The company is always looking to try new things that can improve the product and make fans more invested in it. With the return of live crowds it seems AEW has big things planned.
While speaking on the Battleground Podcast, Mark Henry was asked if AEW will have a fan experience like the WrestleMania experience by WWE. Henry stated that it will definitely happen in the leadup to AEW All Out in September.
“You know what man, that is definitely gonna happen. It’s already in the works. We will be in Chicago from September 1st to the 5th and that’s gonna be our ‘WrestleMania week’. Like there’s gonna be softball games, fan fests, autograph signings, podcasts, there will be symposiums with talents as well as myself trying to break down why we do what we do, when we’re gonna do it. Eventually you get a big blowout show on September 5th.”
We certainly wonder how good the fan experience will be as well head closer to AEW All Out on September 5th. Tickets for the event sold out almost immediately, so fans are certainly excited about the event.
