AEW continues to prioritize providing an entertaining experience for fans, and the April 13th episode of Collision lived up to that standard. The show even set a record for attendance in the area where it was held, showcasing AEW’s growing popularity.

The April 13th edition of AEW Collision emanated from the Truist Arena in Highland Heights, Kentucky. Following the conclusion of the show, AEW held its Battle of The Belts X special as well and fans truly got their money’s worth.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that the recent Collision/Battle of the Belts X event in Highland Heights, Kentucky, drew an attendance of 2,511 people. This marked the largest crowd ever in the city for a professional wrestling show. The previous record was set by a 2011 WWE event that drew 2,000 fans.

”This past week’s Collision/BOTB X in Highland Heights, Kentucky with 2,511 attendance had the largest crowd ever in that city for a pro wrestling show. The previous record was a 2011 WWE show that drew 2,000 fans.”


While this is certainly good news for AEW, it is to be noted that attendance for quite a few shows over the past month hasn’t been up to the mark. Nonetheless, AEW is currently focused on the Dynasty pay-per-view, so we’ll have to see how that event will turn out.
