AEW All In London was a big risk for Tony Khan. Booking Wembley Stadium paid off in a huge way, because tickets have flown out of the box office. Now, AEW has a huge flex on the entire planet. It seems that they might have already sold more tickets than even Chris Jericho reported.
Fans attacked All In London presale tickets with a passion, buying up 35k in one day, but that was only the beginning. Like Pepecoin, it seems to have shot up like a rocket, and that number is only growing.
Wrestle Tix broke down the current All In London ticket sales behind their paywall. In that nice write-up, they included a note that AEW’s big Wembley Stadium show has already sold 70k tickets.
If you’re curious where I’m at, I have them around 70K+ distributed. Just to repeat, that doesn’t mean 70K sold; it’s just where I landed at this moment when combing through the map.
The report also noted that, “the last available count I grabbed was 9,392. They opened up the rest of the stadium yesterday (the upper decks behind the hard cam area are all partially opened, along with some 200 level sections).”
It was also stated that, “it doesn’t mean 70K sold; it’s just where I landed at this moment when combing through the map. When I asked readers about several sections that I questioned (if opened), almost every section received responses (which means it’s hard to rule out some sections I thought for sure weren’t yet opened).”
Ticket sales is a tricky business, and it’s hard to draw interest in such a competitive climate. AEW certainly captured lightening in a bottle with All In London, because fans in the UK market are responding in a huge way for All Elite Wrestling’s first event in their territory.
AEW All In London has not been promoted as a pay-per-view event yet. It will be interesting to see if and when AEW addresses this, because it’s hard to imagine that they will keep it as a house show. After all, AEW All Out will follow the big Wembley Stadium event the next week.
