AEW announced its most significant event at Wembley Stadium in London. The company will host the spectacular event “All In” this August, tickets for which are on sale currently. Former WWE superstar Paige, a.k.a. Saraya, recently took a shot at WWE. She drew a comparison between the two promotions’ ticket sales.
Saraya is currently in a feud with Dr. Britt Baker, AEW Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter, and Hikaru Shida. Along with Toni Storm and Ruby Soho, she formed a group called The Outcasts to take on the AEW Originals. Besides, Toni Storm will take on Jamie Hayter for the AEW Women’s Championship at Double or Nothing on Sunday.
While taking on BBC Radio Norfolk, Saraya made some bold predictions. She told the host and the listeners that AEW can pull off the mammoth task of filling up Wembley Stadium for their upcoming event. The last time that happened was over 30 years ago, at WWE SummerSlam 1992.
Bret Hart lost his Intercontinental Championship to The British Bulldog in the show’s main event. The audience was thunderous for the show 30 years ago. Saraya claimed that AEW would surpass WWE’s ticket sales for 1992 SummerSlam in the stadium. “The UK fans, while they’re crazy in a good way if they’re having a great time that energy is incredible.” she said.
The former WWE superstar also added that AEWwill surmount the odds and create history. The ticket sale for SummerSlam 1992 was somewhere between 65,000 and 80,000. Saraya believes that AEW can cross the number, as 45,000 tickets were already sold in the pre-sales.
AEW has Double or Nothing this Sunday, which takes place in Las Vegas. Before “All In,” the company will tour Canada and will also work withNJPW for Forbidden Door 2 in Toronto. However, AEW has not yet announced the line-up for the event. “All In” is likely to take place on August 27th at Wembley Stadium.
With a change in top-level management at WWE, the company has started innovating the concept of Premium Live Events(PLE). The focus is now more on expanding the global market. As a result, the number of international events has risen exponentially over the last year. AEW, entering its fifth year after forming, is also trying to explore international possibilities.
AEW shocked the wrestling industry by announcing Wembley Stadium for the upcoming All In: London in August. Apart from that, they have also announced a tour in Canada in the summer. Forbidden Door 2 will take place in Toronto, Canada in June. This will help the company compete with WWE on a global level.
