Tony Khan loves talking about AEW and how well they are doing. Although ticket sales might indicate that they have a long way to go before they can re-capture that boom period, TK is still very proud of what his company has done.
AEW Grand Slam is next week in Arthur Ashe Stadium, and tickets didn’t fly out of the box office as they did the first year the company booked that venue. Needless to say, AEW might have to be creative when shooting the crowd to avoid empty spots.
AEW Dynamite saw increases in Dynamite, Collision and Rampage’s viewership from the previous week. Although none of those viewership numbers were blockbuster, Tony Khan still sent out a post on X in typical fashion where he bragged about what his company accomplished in the last week.
Thank you all who made #AEWDynamite this Wednesday’s #1 cable show! All 3 shows Dynamite, Rampage + Collision Up in ratings this week!
Yesterday was also most Grand Slam tickets sold in 1 day since onsale! Great momentum for NYC next week! Don’t miss #AEWRampage TONIGHT on TNT!
AEW Grand Slam is next week, and they still have a lot of tickets left. The company is also running BOGO offers, and that buy one, get one free perk is naturally helping the company move tickets.
Fans were quick to call Tony Khan out for the BOGO ticket offer at Grand Slam. They also reminded him of the fact that AEW apparently inflated their huge AEW All In London number at Wembley Stadium. Needless to say, this tweet from Tony Khan wasn’t his best work.
We will have to see what AEW does in the future for fans to entice them to get to events. At this point, it appears that AEW will need to pull off some clever, creative tactics to rejuvenate their fan base.
