AEW All In is scheduled to take place on Sunday, August 27th at the Wembley Stadium in London, England. The company has now gained huge success with the ticket sale.
Recently, AEW President Tony Khan announced that 60,000 tickets were sold for All In, earning the company $7.7 million. According to these stats, All In would be the most successful non-WWE show (except WCW/NJPW Collision in Korea) in the last 60 years of pro wrestling history.
This past Friday, Chris Jericho issued a statement on Twitter for the people who has a doubt about AEW selling out Wembley Stadium.
“They said we couldn’t do it….and yet here we are at 60,000 tickets sold by the first day of general sales!! @aew has created a MONSTER…and I plan to lead the charge. See you in August”
A fan responded to Jericho and said selling more tickets wouldn’t solve AEW’s declining US viewership.
“Chris this is one event, a hyped, debut, overseas event.
Sadly this doesn’t fix AEW’s core issue of flatlining US viewing figures. In most metrics, not just flatline, decline.
You’ve still got ~30,000 empty seats to fill, so don’t get carried away with the “we did it” stuff.”
In response to that fan, another fan said that television ratings are an outdated way to measure popularity.
“Dude. If they’re doing so poorly, why did Warner just give them another show?
Tv ratings are an outdated way to view popularity, in todays world of cord cutting. WWE has less than half of what they got 10 years ago, but are more profitable than ever.”

Tv ratings are an outdated way to view popularity, in todays world of cord cutting. WWE has less than half of what they got 10 years ago, but are more profitable than ever.
WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque liked the tweet, which means Triple H also thinks TV ratings are outdated.
