AEW Receive Strong Pre-Sale Sign-Ups For All In At Wembley

AEW All In London Graphic

“We’re the famous AEW and we’re going to Wembley” might be what Tony Khan’s roster of talent will be signing come August as the promotion gets set to invade England’s most iconic stadium.

On the 5th of April edition of Dynamite Tony Khan was joined by company newcomer and former WWE announcer Nigel McGuinness for a very special announcement. Khan announced that in the spirit of the show seen as the forerunner of AEW, that the company was running an event named All In on August 27th. Adam Cole joined the two men to reveal that the show would be taking place at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

The show will prove to be AEW’s most ambitious to date with the stadium holding over 90,000 fans at capacity. Indeed, 83,000 fans flocked there recently to watch England take on Brazil in football’s Finalissima.

In 2022, WWE packed the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales with over 60,000 fans for Clash at the Castle but despite being on a channel that everyone receives in the UK, AEW does not have the same foothold in the UK that WWE does given the latter’s tenure.

However, AEW will be buoyed by news of the scramble from fans to register for pre-sale tickets with Dave Meltzer writing in his Wrestling Observer Newsletter that 25,000 fans have signed up for early access:

“Tickets go on sale to the public on 5/5, but they are doing a pre-register for early access with a code, and there will be a pre-sale on 5/2. That will largely give a strong clue as to how successful the show will end up being. There were reports of 25,000 sign-ups the first day.”

There have been some questions about whether or not the show will be a pay-per-view event, especially given its proximity to All Out. When revealing the show it was noted that it was to help celebrate 100 years of Wembley as well as 100 years of Warner Brothers so there is every chance it runs as a TV special in the US.
