AEW held the All In event at the Wembley Stadium in London, England this past Sunday. With that show, AEW set the largest paid attendance record in pro wrestling history with 81,035 fans. Meanwhile, WWE broke the company’s all-time gate record by selling more than 90,000 tickets for WrestleMania 40 within a day.
Seth Rollins appeared on Corey Grave’s After the Bell podcast, where he said that pro wrestling is hotter than ever. The World Heavyweight Champion took AEW as an example and acknowledged their success with the All In event.
“We are in the boom, man. You got to understand. There is another company that just put 80,000 people in a stadium for one night. A week before that, we sold 90,000 tickets to WrestleMania and broke the all-time gate on the first day. There are seven, or eight different television programs of professional wrestling in a week, not counting premium live events or pay-per-views. I mean, the talent roster across the board is beyond what any generation has ever put forward.”Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins is scheduled to defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura at Payback this Saturday.
