We reported earlier this week that tickets for the AEW “All Out” event went on sale and sold out in about 15 minutes. Here is the latest on the ticket sales.
According to reports, many more tickets could’ve been sold. The early estimate given was that AEW could have sold 137,600 tickets for the show. These numbers come from multiple ticket outlets and the AEW website.
According to Dave Meltzer, he’s never heard of a “pro wrestling show with this many people looking for tickets in history.” When you compare the amount of potential tickets that could’ve been sold for the first time Anderson Silva fought in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, (UFC 134 in August 2011), the UFC could’ve sold 150,000 tickets for that event, which was held in a 16,000-seat building.
Some people expected the ticket demand for the “All Out” event to be in the range 40,000-50,000 tickets. But with these new estimated numbers, it’s obvious AEW should have booked a stadium.
AEW “All Out” takes place for August 31st from the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. That is just outside of Chicago.
