Last Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite was held from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois, which was where the company’s 2020 Revolution PPV Event was held as well. Shortly after Dynamite came to a close, top AEW Star and Chicago’s own CM Punk made a huge announcement that AEW is set to return to Chicago on Wednesday, February 2nd for an episode of AEW Dynamite, which is set to also take place from the Wintrust Arena. The company will also be taping an episode of Rampage that night.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the company could be risking or even experiencing a burnout or an exhaustion from the AEW fans with how often they have been holding PPVs and weekly shows in Chicago, Illinois and that was shown when pre-sale tickets were made available this past week for the February 2nd episode of Dynamite.
According to Dave Meltzer, ticket sales for the pre-sale were the lowest the company has ever had for an AEW show in Chicago and not only were they the lowest ever, but they were the lowest ever by a big margin, though it should be made clear that this was just the pre-sale and things can still catch up, especially with tickets for the general public already going on sale this past weekend.
WrestleTix reports that 2470 tickets were sold during the pre-sale of the February 2nd Dynamite show, but more than 7000 tickets were sold on the first day tickets went on sale for the AEW Revolution PPV Event. Updates will be provided once it has been made available.

Quick look at how the presales went yesterday for each AEW show. A decent amount of floor seats are held or distributed by the time the presale began so those are included in the numbers below. All 3 go on sale to the general public today. pic.twitter.com/DEPlIIys4Z— WrestleTix (@WrestleTix) November 27, 2021
