Ticket sales for AEW’s All In event have gone really well, which has led to Dave Meltzer reacting to it by saying it’s a gigantic achievement for the company.

Over the last week, ticket sales started for the massive AEW All In event at Wembley Stadium in London, England on Sunday, August 27th. After the pre-sale, they had already surpassed 50,000 tickets sold and by the time general tickets went on sale, people in AEW mentioned that they had passed 60,000 tickets sold.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is a wrestling historian that has covered the pro wrestling business for over 40 years, so he has covered all of the major stadium shows in wrestling history whether it’s SummerSlam 1992 in England, WrestleMania 3 in Detroit and many other shows all over the world that have drawn huge crowds.

On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer put into context what this attendance number for All In really means.

“[It is] ahead of [SummerSlam 1992], it’s ahead of WrestleMania 3, ahead of every other WrestleMania except for Dallas, it’s an incredible story.”

“You go back to the start…this is the movie. Because it’s not all positive. The idea of what The Young Bucks and Cody [Rhodes] started, then the meeting with Tony Khan, and the building of this company, and getting to this date with Cody gone and all of the stuff that happened in the last year, it’s an incredible story.”

As Meltzer continued, he spoke about how booking a 90,000-seat stadium like Wembley Stadium for All In is the draw for a lot of people since no matches have been announced yet: “The idea they booked Wembley in and of itself made it a draw.”

In other comments, Dave Meltzer put over how big the ticket sale numbers for All In are for AEW while adding that their next TV deal is important too.

“It is gigantic. It is historical and all that. It doesn’t mean this is a turnaround, or it’s all smooth sailing. If they get a great television deal, then it’s all smooth sailing.”

As for the immediate future, AEW Owner, President & Head of Creative Tony Khan believes he has booked a pay-per-view quality episode of Dynamite this coming Wednesday in Detroit.
