AEW Announce Grand Slam Date & Location

Tony Khan AEW

AEW Grand Slam is returning in September.

Since 2021, AEW has held an annual event at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. The taping has traditionally featured a live episode of Dynamite, with Rampage taped afterward.

The World Championship clash between Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega headlined the first Grand Slam event, with the bout ending in a time-limit draw. The match was Danielson’s first since leaving WWE earlier that year.

12 months later, Danielson came up short for a second time in the main event, this time losing to Jon Moxley who claimed the vacant World Championship. The event also featured the AEW debut of Saraya.

In 2023, MJF beat Samoa Joe to retain the AEW World Title, but the match is probably more well-remembered for Adam Cole suffering a broken ankle while trying to help the champion. Following the injury, Cole is yet to return to the ring.
