AEW All In has surpassed a giant WWE ticket milestone.
AEW made waves when they announced they were bringing All In to Wembley Stadium in London, England on August 27th. Many wondered how well tickets would sell for the event in the giant stadium but any worries about Wembley being haf full were soon put to bed.
Jeff Jarrett, AEW’s Director of Business Development, recently noted that All In was “definitely tracking to sell out” and other reports have suggested that it is on its way to becoming the biggest ticket-selling wrestling event of all time.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that All In has now surpassed the 78,000 tickets sold for WrestleMania 3 in 1987. WWE has long touted that 93,173 fans packed the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan to witness Hulk Hogan bodyslam Andre The Giant but the actual number of tickets sold for the event was much lower than WWE’s announced attendance.
“It passed Hogan-Andre. So, the last number I saw was in the 78,000s. I don’t think it’s at 79 yet. It was 78,000 and, like, 150 ish, yesterday. We’re in the 78,000 range. The next number that I guess would be the goal would be 79,127. So if we’re 600 to get there. That’s about another week, maybe a little less than a week. So that one will, that one will fall.
“And then the big one, which is the WrestleMania 32, and the Lando record, would probably be. I don’t know, you know, maybe last week. But there, those records are all going down. They will break those records. Unless something unforeseen happens, like all of a sudden nobody buys tickets at the end when they should be in town promoting it the hardest.”
What has AEW announced for All In?
The only confirmed match for All In so far is the main event which will see MJF defend his AEW World Championship against Adam Cole.
However, two other matches seem to be in the works for the show with FTR challenging The Young Bucks to a third showdown while Samoa Joe has his sights set on one more bout with CM Punk.
