AEW Dynamite Grand Slam was truly a night of memorable matches and excellent moments that fans will not forget anytime soon. This included Saraya’s incredible debut as well as The Acclaimed’s AEW World Tag Team Title win.
AEW President Tony Khan made extra sure to promo the special edition of Dynamite as much as he could. In the end, it proved fruitful as the show garnered over a million viewers.
According to Wrestletix, AEW Grand Slam was the first million-dollar TV gate for the company. It was said that the show managed a $1,020,000 gate. It was added that not a lot of suites were occupied.

First million dollar TV gate for the company (Dave Meltzer is reporting a $1,020,000 gate). Not many suites were occupied as seen in the pictures below. They did have a late rush of purchases around 5PM. The ticket map went down unusually early (well before 7PM).
We will have to wait and see how AEW will be able to carry forward with their momentum right now. This is despite the fact that they are in hot water due to their numerous backstage issues as of late.
