AEW Grand Slam is on its way back to Arthur Ashe Stadium later this year.
September will be a busy month for AEW. Not only has the company confirmed that All Out will take place in Chicago, IL on September 3rd (just one week after All In inside Wembley Stadium), but according to a recent report from Andrew Zarian, AEW Grand Slam is set to return to Arthur Ashe Stadium on September 20th. It is likely that as in past years, Grand Slam will encompass both Dynamite and Rampage, and there has so far been no word as to whether or not Collision will also emanate from the same venue.

The first edition of the special broadcast took place in 2021 and saw Bryan Danielson take Kenny Omega to a 30 minute time limit draw in a match of the year contender. The main event of Dynamite featured Ruby Soho unsuccessfully trying to unseat Britt Baker as AEW Women’s Champion. Meanwhile, on Rampage, Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston teamed to defeat Suzuki-gun, the team of Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer.
In 2022, the AEW World Championship was on the line inside Arthur Ashe Stadium. After CM Punk was stripped of the title in the aftermath of the All Out brawl, a tournament was held to crown a new champion. In the main event of Dynamite on September 21st, Jon Moxley defeated Bryan Danielson to win the title for a second time. The show also saw PAC defeat Orange Cassidy to become the All-Atlantic Champion.
