AEW’s Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, which will reportedly be the company’s biggest Dynamite episode and show in history as well as most likely AEW’s highest attended show ever as the company is looking to fill up the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York, is set to be All Elite Wrestling’s first-ever stadium show and the first-ever pro wrestling show ever hosted by a tennis complex.
The Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York can accommodate to at least 23,000 fans for a tennis show and it was expected that at least 20,000 fans will be in attendance for the Grand Slam episode of AEW Dynamite if the show will sell out. The capacity of the show was initially set to 17,000 fans, but it was first reported by @WrestleTix that more than 18,000 tickets have already been sold.
AEW initially sold a total of 18,023 tickets for the Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, but it was noted that the promotion will be able to reach a total of 19,000 tickets sold due to the buzz brought about by the recent signings of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole and Ruby Soho and these recent signings could even lead to the tickets being completely sold out.
WrestleTix recently provided an update on Twitter that the Grand Slam episode of Dynamite has already sold a total of 18,424 tickets and with Arthur Ashe Stadium’s capacity now set at 19,428 and AEW only having about 1,000 tickets remaining, it is possible that Dynamite will be sold out by this Wednesday night.
Tickets for the company’s Grand Slam episode of Dynamite initially went on sale on Friday, July 16 at 10AM ET via AEWTix.com and Ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices for AEW’s Grand Slam episode start at $100 (First Three Rows Floor Ringside Seating), $75, $50, $35 and $20. There is reportedly also a $54 get-in price on the secondary market. The Grand Slam episode of Dynamite is set to take place this coming Wednesday, September 22nd.
