WWE Star Takes Shot At AEW All In Attendance On Raw

One WWE star clearly knew exactly how many tickets AEW sold for All In.

AEW put on the biggest show in its history when All In invaded Wembley Stadium in London, England on August 27th. Many eyebrows were raised when Tony Khan announced that his company was taking on the challenge of running the massive stadium but Khan had the last laugh when AEW announced that they had sold 81,035 tickets for the event.

That number gives AEW the legitimate claim to the world record for the biggest paid attendance for a wrestling show, beating the number of tickets sold for any WWE show ever. WWE, however, has announced higher attendances in the past but these are widely believed to be inflated figures that take in people working at the venues as well.

However, on Raw, it seemed Xavier Woods may well have had the All In attendance in mind when he confronted Drew McIntyre. Woods was not happy about McIntyre trash-talking his New Day partner the prior week and when the Scottish star tried to walk away from him, Woods asked if McIntyre was jealous that Kingston won his WWE Title at WrestleMania 35 in front of “82,000 screaming fans” while McIntyre got his big WrestleMania moment one year later in front of no fans due to the pandemic taking hold in the spring of 2020.

Xavier Woods’ WWE WrestleMania comment no accident

Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio noted that the number mentioned by Xavier Woods was no accident – “That number was certainly not a random number. That was their answer [to the All In attendance].”

WWE had announced 82,265 as the official attendance for WrestleMania 35 – the last one-night WrestleMania to take place in 2019. Meltzer had reported in the Wrestling Observer at the time that the paid attendance for the event was 63,000 with an attendance figure in the range of 68,000 – 70,000.
