The upward trajectory of AEW continues with a new report saying that one of the company’s upcoming shows has the highest secondary ticket market value in wrestling history.
At AEW Fight For The Fallen, the company announced that they were heading to the United Center in Chicago on August 20th for the second-ever edition of AEW Rampage. That announcement was greeted by an overwhelmingly positive reaction from fans in attendance as they chanted the name of a certain Chicago native that is reportedly heading to the land of All Elite.
Now Dave Meltzer on his Wrestling Observer Radio was discussing that announcement and also touched on an interesting note with regards to another upcoming AEW show. According to Meltzer, the upcoming All Out pay-per-view set to be held on September 5th on the outskirts of Chicago now has the strongest secondary ticket market in wrestling history.
“One of the things that’s happened this week that is amazing is the secondary market business – and this is before tonight, this began five days ago. The secondary market for the September 5th show is now the strongest in the history of pro wrestling.”
Meltzer then noted that at his last check the price for a ticket on the secondary market was $323 which is the all-time record for professional wrestling.
He goes onto say that only 785 tickets for All Out were sold to the secondary market originally with a recent shift happening in the value of those tickets when the price was inflated by other secondary market sellers snapping up what tickets they could.
Dave Meltzer compared the value to Shinsuke Nakamura’s NXT debut show in Dallas in 2016 where secondary prices hit $155. He adds that he believes there were two shows where the price for a ticket on the secondary market hit $200 with one of them being a Royal Rumble and the other being the original All In show in 2018 that was the precursor to All Elite Wrestling.
