As we previously reported here on eWn, AEW sold over 43,000 tickets for All In 2023 on the first and second days of the pre-sale. The excellent numbers caused critics to claim that a vast majority of those were purchased by scalpers.
Taking to Twitter, AEW World Champion MJF shot down those claims and hyped tonight’s episode of Dynamite. He wrote,
“The goal post will always be moved. This app makes up a whopping 7% of our audience(dripping with sarcasm). None of the takes on this app matter. Only facts matter. The fact is I’m the best professional wrestler in the world. The biggest min/min draw in the company/and me and Sammy are going to main event Double or Nothing.”

In a recent interview with Fightful, Brian Pillman Jr. expressed his desire to work more AEW House Rules shows and explained why he prefers it to televised events.
Pillman Jr. wrestled Jeff Jarrett at the inaugural House Rules event in OH. He said,
“It was great. I mean, talk about a capacity show. It was completely sold out. I think the building held about 3,500 people. We had 3,400 people there. It was just a great, great time to have some very relaxed matches with a nice length to them. You’re not going out there and doing a seven-minute sprint. Me and Jeff, we got to go for 10-12 minutes, have some fun, and work with the crowd. Obviously, there are meet, and greets going on at these house shows. It’s a great experience for the fans and the wrestlers without all the pressure of TV going on. So I think that might be a great place for me and Brock to cut our teeth and connect with the fans.”
