AEW brought Grand Slam to Arthur Ashe Stadium, and the stadium wasn’t really prepared for that influx of people. Tony Khan’s company might not have really considered those fans in the upper deck when they set up the lighting rigs for tonight’s show.
Fans openly complained on social media about the LED lights on AEW’s set. They pointed upward and blinded those in the crowd. It was apparently becoming a problem when those fans who paid to get a seat couldn’t see the show.
This is not a new problem for fans at pro wrestling events. There were fans at AEW All Out who were blinded by the lights. WrestleMania’s lighting rig also blinded a few of those fans and there were complaints on Twitter. It just goes to show that sometimes the best seat is the one you have at home.
