AEW has a lot of hours on television now, and Collision will add two more. This means that they will go to even more cities in the months to come. Some fans will be very happy to hear about this, because it will give AEW another reason to give their city a visit.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall, that AEW Dynamite will go back to Lexington, Kentucky once again, and next time they will get a Collision taping.
AEW Dynamite came to Lexington, Kentucky in January and performed well, selling over 5,000 tickets for their first effort in Kentucky. The company has been to Cincinnati numerous times, it being the home to top star Jon Moxley.
Fightful Select reported that an early September AEW Dynamite date is planned for Cincinnati, but that doesn’t appear to be it. Sources have told us that Rupp Arena in Lexington and AEW are preparing to announce that Collision will have a show in August in the arena as well.
The report also noted that, “WWE ran Lexington at Rupp Arena June 16 and drew a great crowd over 9,400, and are running Cincinnati tonight for a live event, featuring the first Roman Reigns WWE Universal Title defense since WrestleMania.”
We will have to see where AEW books their shows next. Obviously, they have a lot of options, but the fact is they aren’t really selling tickets like they used to.
What’s your take on this situation with AEW events? Do you think they are running too many events? Sound off in the comments!
