Chris Jericho has over three decades of experience under his belt and has seen the pro wrestling industry change in numerous ways. He truly has faith in AEW and its ability to grow as Jericho is loyal to the company. Many people doubt AEW will be able to find success with the upcoming All In event in London. It appears that Chris Jericho believes All In’s ticket sales will truly silence all critics.
Tony Khan’s ambition truly knows no limits in many ways, including AEW’s biggest plan – which will see the company holding the next All In event at Wembley Stadium this year. Obviously, a lot of thought went into making such an announcement.
The All In event will be taking place on August 27 at the London Stadium, which is definitely a big deal for the promotion. With a capacity of 90,000 fans, many fans doubt AEW will be able to sell a respectable number of tickets, let alone sell out the venue.
While speaking to 98 Rock Baltimore, Chris Jericho stated that All In taking place in London is a “big league statement.” Jericho claimed that critics will have their foot in their mouths after All In’s ticket sales.
When I heard Wembley Stadium, I was like super excited because we could’ve went to the 02 which is cool, been there many times, we could’ve gone to Craven Cottage,” he said. “Wembley takes things to a completely different level and people are like, ‘Oh my gosh.’
If you build it they will come. I don’t even know what the card is going to be, but I bet you when that ticket goes on sale in about three weeks, people are going to have their foots in their mouths when they see just how many tickets are sold right out of the gate just because AEW is at Wembley … People don’t understand, AEW is very, very hot in England. Our show, Dynamite, is the number one watched pro wrestling show in the country over any other company.”
The ticket price range for the upcoming All In Event has also been revealed. AEW has racked up huge numbers for All In’s pre-sale sign ups as well. Jericho has been defending the upcoming event for a while now. Only time will tell whether the show will be a successful one in August.
