Tony Khan Officially Confirms Attendance For Revolution PPV

It was previously reported that just minutes after tickets went on sale for Revolution it had already sold out. There was no mention on exactly how many tickets were sold, only that Revolution will still have socially-distanced pods and that the promotion will allow only a limited capacity of fans due to the COVID-19 safety protocols.

AEW President and CEO Tony Khan recently appeared as a guest on AEW’s Unrestricted podcast to promote tonight’s Revolution PPV and officially confirm the attendance of the event.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“We’re gonna have the biggest crowd we’ve done yet because we’ve found some new seats. We’ve reconfigured a little bit.” “We still are running just over 25% capacity, under 30% capacity, and we’re gonna have over 1,300 people at Daily’s Place.”

Khan then talked about keeping so many independent wrestlers working and helping people stay employed as well as changing what Dark was and building new content. Khan also talked about what the promotion has done leading to the genesis of Elevation, and that they will be developing more content and their brand-new show being an extension of the Dark brand on YouTube.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“I think it’s been the spirit of the pandemic.” “We kept so many independent wrestlers working, and helped people stay employed, and kept feeding people during the pandemic by using tons of independent wrestlers, and changing what Dark was and building new content. And now that’s led to the genesis of Elevation, and we’ll be developing more content. It’s an extension of the Dark brand on YouTube.”

“We’re going to see lots of top independent stars, and lots of the young AEW wrestlers and a lot of veterans all mixed up with each other and amongst themselves. We’re going to add another show on TNT this year, and we’ve got a lot of star power across Dynamite and another hour. I don’t want to say a third hour. It’s a third hour of television, but it’s not going to be on Wednesday. It’ll be another hour show, which is the critical thing. We don’t need to do a three hour straight show. Two hours is the perfect length for a show, and I think another one hour show is going to really punch it.”

“And we’re going to get to focus on more stars because we already have a lot of stars in AEW. Each week, you don’t get to see everyone, and even with another hour, you still wouldn’t necessarily see everybody constantly every week, but you’ll be able to still keep people fresh while getting all the star power, and it’ll be more great matches for the wrestling fans every week, which is the most important thing. I just want to deliver a lot of good wrestling every week, and that’s one thing Dynamite’s done since we debuted is a lot of great wrestling matches.”

Tony Khan then talked about pro wrestling promotions working together and what he thinks of it.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“We’re all fighting against the people who don’t believe in wrestling.” “At the end of the day, if you love wrestling, then we’re all on the same side.”
