On November 16th, 2022, AEW Dynamite was held at Total Mortgage Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Even before the event started, we reported that ticket sales did not sellout the venue by about 1,000 available seats. It appears that AEW really failed to draw in more fans because the arena appeared sparse, to say the least.
A fan video of the Arena’s actual crowd condition is making the rounds on Twitter. The caption questioned Tony Khan’s booking decision and how it might have hurt ticket sales. Many fans also trolled him in the comments section.
As one fan put it, “They sold 3500 tickets from 10000 arena. Man.. they fans will say “well but.. but.. the show was over.. this is why the show was empty”. “AEW is about to do another 1M dollar gate on Full Gear”. They just CAN’T be the babyface and have their space. They need to go against the WWE.” Another user mentioned the number of fans that were actually present in the arena writing, “3500 people weren’t in the building. It was more like 300-350.” Another fan poked fun at the situation, writing, “I’ve seen High school football teams have more people.”
According to WrestleTix’s last report, only 2,960 seats out of 4,174 were purchased. The seating chart also showed how empty the arena would look if AEW did not sell more tickets, which is exactly what happened. This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite is the final episode of Full Gear, which will air on November 19.
Let’s see how many people show up next time. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
