On April 5th, AEW President Tony Khan announced that All Elite Wrestling would be making its UK debut later this year when it presents the first ever AEW All In.
The company is headed to London, England on August 27th, and their UK debut is set to be a huge one as it takes place inside the iconic Wembley Stadium. It’s currently unknown how much of the 90,000 seat venue will be used during the pay-per-view, but UK fans are already clamoring for tickets.
The first round of pre-sale tickets went on sale on May 2nd, and according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, the company has already sold more than 35,000 tickets. Though more pre-sales and the official on-sale date are yet to come, the company has already smashed their previous attendance record of 20,177 attendants at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam inside Arthur Ashe Stadium in September of 2022.
As of now, no matches have been announced for the show, but it’s safe to say the crowd will be rabid for the first All Elite show on UK soil.
AEW All Out To Take Place One Week After AEW All In
The company’s trip to London will mark the first time an All In show is held under the All Elite Wrestling banner. The first show of its name took place in September of 2018 when Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Adam Page, and Kenny Omega put together the largest independent wrestling event in US history following a bet from Dave Meltzer that an independent show couldn’t sell 10,000 tickets.
The show in Chicago, IL boasted talent from multiple promotions including IMPACT Wrestling, New Japan, ROH, and NWA. It was an immediate sellout, and following the massive success of All In, plans were put in place to create All Elite Wrestling.
Since the company’s formation, it has presented AEW All Out each Labor Day Weekend. Recent reports indicate that AEW All Out is still on the schedule for September 3rd, just one week after All In, but this has not been officially confirmed.
