Several Fans Might ‘No Show’ 5/8 AEW Dynamite

AEW is currently investing a lot of time in The Elite’s storyline, as they have taken over the company by taking out Tony Khan and then Kenny Omega. It’s expected the storyline will progress on this week’s Dynamite but it appears many fans might ‘no show’ Dynamite this week.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the attendance at this week’s AEW Dynamite might be impacted due to a major NHL Stanley Cup game taking place at the same time as Dynamite will be taking place at the Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, CA.

According to Meltzer, the Edmonton Oilers are facing off against the Vancouver Canucks, and despite the game being held in Vancouver, it’s creating a ton of buzz in Edmonton. He also pointed out that there’s a massive watch party in Edmonton, right near where AEW Dynamite is being held.

“It’s going to be really tough because they’re in Edmonton and the Oilers are in the Stanley Cup against the Vancouver Canucks that day. The game’s in Vancouver, but in Edmonton, the city’s basically going to shut down for the game. There’s going to be an event in Edmonton, right next to the show where AEW is, and there’s going to be 20,000 people for a watch party for the game.”



This large-scale event, coupled with traffic concerns, might lead to a drop in attendance for AEW Dynamite as Dave Meltzer noted there’s a good chance people who have purchased tickets will ‘no show’ Dynamite.

“The traffic getting out is going to be murderous unless you stay for the ROH tapings, in which case the traffic may not be that bad, but a lot of people at that thing are probably going to want to be getting home for the game. Because the game was just announced, it’s not like when people bought tickets they knew there’d be this game, so I could see people no showing that have tickets, and I could see people leaving early to get home and see the game.”

We will have to wait and see whether the attendance for this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite will end up being less than usual, as all signs point towards that happening this time.
