AEW’s Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, which according to Dave Meltzer will be the promotion’s biggest Dynamite episode and show in history as well as AEW’s highest attended show ever and the largest non-WWE crowd for U.S. pro wrestling since 1999 as the company is looking to fill up Arthur Ashe Stadium, will be the company’s first-ever stadium show and the first wrestling show ever hosted by this tennis complex.
The Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York can accommodate to at least 23,000 fans for tennis and it was expected that at least 20,000 fans will be in attendance for AEW’s Dynamite if the show will sell out, but the capacity of the show was reportedly set to 17,000 fans and Dave Meltzer said on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, which is set to take place on Wednesday, September 22nd, has already sold more than 15,000 tickets and is expected to fully sell out soon.
