AEW All In London will be a huge event on August 27th in Wembley Stadium. Tony Khan took a huge gamble when he booked that famous venue over Craven Cottage, AEW’s former choice for their first London show.
AEW’s first show in the UK market is already shaping up to be a historic one. Now that the dust has settled from the presale, we have a better idea about ticket demand. It also appears that their first big wave of purchases has passed now.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that, while AEW has sold a ton of tickets for All In London, sales numbers have started to slow down considerably.
Regarding Wembley Stadium, tickets basically haven’t moved over the past week. It’s still right at 62,000 paid and $7.9 million What this has shown is that the idea that the big excitement is that there is a big show coming to town and people want to be part of it doesn’t seem to be it. There was thought that once word got out that it would be one of the largest crowds in history that people would want to be part of it. But after word got out last week of 60,000 the pace of the show at record setting levels, sales have pretty much stopped.
We will have to see how many fans AEW can pack into Wembley Stadium. Obviously, they have a ton of interest in the market, but only time will tell if ticket sales pick back up.
AEW All In London has not been promoted as a pay-per-view event yet. It is unknown how fans outside of Wembley Stadium will get to see the show. After all, AEW All Out is still scheduled to go down the next week.
Odds are, tickets will start to move again once AEW starts announcing matches. If anything, they really have nothing to be ashamed of if they only sell 65k tickets for the historic event.
