Jeff Jarrett Says AEW Talent Are Excited For “Rabid Fan Base” In London


The AEW lockerroom is ecstatic at the notion of performing in front of the “rabid” fans in London, England later this year.

Last November, AEW confirmed reports of a UK event in 2023, though no date or venue has been given for the show.


As AEW’s Director of Business Development, Jeff Jarrett will be heavily involved in the UK show behind the scenes and spoke about the event on his My World Podcast. He said,

“When you’re expanding your brand in professional wrestling, look at the late ’80s, early ’90s. What did the WWF do? They went to the UK.

“We’re all internally excited. I know the fan base — I bet in the last three months I’ve gotten two or three emails a week from different promoters and folks of contacts because there’s a ton of buzz, a ton of excitement. I’m super excited.

“The demand in that market is – when you really look at it, London has what, 20 million people [actually 8.9 million.] But, overall, the country is small compared to the U.S. or even other countries. So, it’s a rabid fan base.”

AEW aren’t the only ones with their eyes on the UK as WWE will host their annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view in London on July 1.
