Jim Ross has confirmed that AEW will “definitely” be coming to the United Kingdom within the next calendar year.
Ever since AEW came into being in 2019, fans have been clamouring for the promotion to come to the United Kingdom.
Outside of wrestling, AEW President Tony Khan also owns English football club Fulham F.C. meaning he also has control over their stadium, which some have suggested could be a prime location for an AEW show.
Furthermore, the company has continued to grow in popularity in the UK, recently posting its highest UK rating to date, breaking its previous record with the broadcast of Dynamite’s 22 June – aired 24 June in the UK – episode.
During a recent episode of his Grilling JR podcast, AEW announcer Jim Ross discussed the possibility of the company bringing a show to the UK. Ross referenced PAC defending the All-Atlantic Championship at a recent event in Sheffield before confirming that AEW will be following within the “next calendar year.”
“I know that we’re going to go to places, like PAC is defending that title now in the UK I get it all the time. When are you guys coming to England? When are you going to do a pay-per-view? When are you going to do this? Well, when we come to England, you can bet your ass it’s going to be big. Tony’s got great business contacts there.
“But the key thing is AEW is definitely coming to the UK and it will be in the next calendar year. I know that for a fact. I don’t know the dates, but we’re all excited about that because we get great television ratings in the UK. So why not play off that?”
Ross’ comments come after Tony Khan expressed an interest in bringing All Elite Wrestling across the Atlantic in summer 2023.
