As previously reported, it only took All Elite Wrestling three hours this past Friday to sell out their first-ever show on TNT. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com reported that AEW was able to sell more than 9,200 tickets, while Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live said that around 9,200 – 10,000 tickets were sold. Meltzer also noted that around 1,000 more tickets may be released within this week or so.
Chris Jericho recently made the headlines once again when he took to social media and demanded another thank you for the success of AEW’s first-ever show on TNT selling out.
This is what Chris Jericho said: “AEW’s debut television taping October 2 from the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. sells out in three hours.” “Everyone said, ‘Oh, what’s it gonna do? Is it gonna do 60 percent full? 70 percent full?” I said, ‘No, it’s going to sell out in three hours,’ because look at who’s in the center of the poster, look at who is front and center of every ad for the show. Chris Jericho.”
“So, AEW, once again, all the office personnel, Tony Khan, all the kiss-asses sucking up to him, Young Bucks, Cody, Kenny, all of ya! ‘Hangman’ Adam Page, MJF, Jungle Boy, Britt Baker, Nyla Rose, The Librarian—one and two. All of you owe me a thank you. Every single person who bought a ticket and sold that show out in three hours, deserves to tell me thank you. I need a thank you. I demand a thank you. And I’m gonna get my thank you. You’re welcome.”
