AEW Plans To Return To Arthur Ashe Stadium This September

All Elite Wrestling recently held their Double Or Nothing PPV Event, with several huge moments taking place on the show, including CM Punk beating “Hangman” Adam Page to become the new AEW World Champion and even though it has only been a couple of days removed from Double Or Nothing, All Elite Wrestling is already looking forward to future PPV Events such as Forbidden Door, which is a PPV Event they are holding in collaboration with NJPW on Sunday, June 26 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois and their Grand Slam special, an event that usually takes place in September.

AEW President and CEO Tony Khan revealed during an interview with News 12 Long Island a few weeks ago that their Grand Slam special will be returning to Arthur Ashe Stadium sometime this year, but he did not provide a date at the time.

Dave Meltzer reported on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the plan as of today is to hold their Grand Slam special sometime in mid-September, but an actual date has yet to be decided. Meltzer also noted that AEW CEO Tony Khan wants the Grand Slam special to be an annual thing and even though a specific date has not been decided, he knows for sure that the show will take place on a Wednesday night.

This is what Dave Meltzer said:

“Grand Slam, which he [Khan] has talked about, they’re going to do it. He wants Grand Slam to be an annual tradition as the biggest TV of the year. He did not say this, but we in fact know, it will be mid-September on a Wednesday night in Arthur Ashe stadium, they’ve got it booked.”
