Last Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which took place inside the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California, had a stacked card from top to bottom and concluded with an Escalera De La Muerte Matchup in the Best Of 7 series between Death Triangle (PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fenix) and The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson), with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks walking out as the new AEW World Trios Champions.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent Wrestling Observer Radio Program that this past Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite set a new record for the biggest day of walk-up sales in the history of the company. The report also states that this is a very good sign for the company, probably the best sign that they’ve had, but with this being the biggest pro wrestling crowd ever in the history of The Kia Forum, ticket sales for their March 5th AEW Revolution PPV Event is still low.
This is what Dave Meltzer said:
“They set their record for the biggest last day of sale walk-up sale in the history of the company for a show that started at 4.30 in the afternoon. That’s a very good sign, probably the best sign that they’ve had, no matter what the rating is, that the stuff is starting to take hold after a period where, for a lot of different reasons, stuff is bad. And they still have some advances that are bad.”
“There are some good ones and some bad ones, but this is a good one. It was one of the biggest pro-wrestling crowds ever in (The Forum’s history), obviously the second biggest gate at The Forum. but I’d have to look it up, but I believe the fourth biggest wrestling crowd in the history of The Forum…For a second show in, they held up. It wasn’t like the first, which was a legitimate sell-out, but it was a very good crowd…an over $700,000 gate.”
