AEW has a few huge events lined up, including their debut in New York City. The Big Apple has COVID-19 mandates in place and the company wants to make sure fans abide by those rules in Author Ashe Stadium.

The company released their policy for AEW Grand Slam, and that includes proof of vaccination. Those cards must be shown upon entry to the event or those fans will not be allowed in. You can check out the complete guidelines below.

Please note that all ticket holders age 12 and older are required to provide proof of at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to enter the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center and Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday, Sept. 22, for AEW DYNAMITE: GRAND SLAM.

All ticket holders are advised to bring one of the following as proof of vaccination:


• CDC Vaccination Card. A photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable.

• NYC Vaccination Record or other official immunization record from within or outside the U.S., including from your health care provider. A photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable. If you are unable to get this record, call 311.

• NYC COVID Safe App: Available for download via Android and iOS. You can upload a photo of your CDC vaccination card or other official record to this app, along with your photo ID.

• Excelsior Pass (or Excelsior Pass Plus): To use this app, you will need the phone number or email address associated with your NYC vaccination record. If you are unable to use this app, try one of the other options listed above.

• An official immunization record from outside NYC or the U.S.
Note that Ticketmaster will provide refunds to fans who refuse to show proof of vaccination or are unvaccinated.

AEW is obviously concerned about the rising threat of COVID-19 in American and they are doing whatever they can to abide by those guidelines. The company has not postponed any events yet, but Tony Khan already stated that they have a plan of action in case if comes to that again.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
