Tony Khan Reveals “Very Important” Announcement On AEW Dynamite

AEW boss Tony Khan Ring of Honor

It’s been built up over the week, and on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan revealed that AEW would be making its international debut in London, England, this Summer.

On August 27, AEW will bring back the All In pay-per-view, but this won’t just be one of the standard arena shows we’ve come to expect from the company. This will mark the largest show in All Elite Wrestling history as it’s taking place at London’s Wembley Stadium.

This will be AEW’s first stadium show, with a capacity of 90,000 seats at the arena they’ve booked. Speculation leading into tonight pointed to such an announcement, especially after, earlier today, the company hired a staple of the UK wrestling scene, Nigel McGuinness, to their broadcast team.

Speculation leading into tonight also pointed toward a possible AEW show premiering on Saturdays later this year. The only certainty heading into tonight, provided by PWInsider, was that the announcement wouldn’t be storyline or talent-related.

Despite not being the big announcement this evening, the possibility of an additional AEW show is still on the table. Recent reports have noted that a new AEW television show is slated to premiere this coming July, though an official announcement has not been made.

Other big news coming out of tonight’s AEW Dynamite includes the return of Jay White to AEW television for the first time since The Forbidden Door pay-per-view. White assisted his fellow Bullet Club member, Juice Robinson, in beating down Ricky Starks before the Juice vs. Starks match could get underway.
