AEW has undoubtedly embarked on a remarkable journey since its inception in 2019, characterized by substantial growth and success. The pinnacle of its achievements was evident at the All Out 2021 event, but it’s been a slow decline since then for the most part. Just like any organization, AEW faces its share of challenges, and one of these is the struggle to sell tickets for their live shows.

The May 15th episode of AEW Dynamite emanated from the Winds Arena in Everett, Washington. The venue has maximum capacity of 10,000 but was scaled for 4,076, out of which they managed to sell 3,459 according to WrestleTix.

A less-than-favorable image from this week’s AEW Dynamite has surfaced on social media, revealing empty seats during Adam Copeland’s segment with The House of Black during the show. This depiction is certainly not a good look for the show’s image.

Some critics suggest that AEW’s choice of oversized venues has led to unappealing visuals, raising concerns about ticket sales. However, there’s hope that AEW can overcome these challenges and return to its previous success.


However, there’s concern that AEW’s current attendance figures could parallel WCW’s decline in 2000, raising concerns about the company’s future. Time will reveal whether AEW can overcome these challenges, especially considering the recent improvements in their product.
