All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has reached a new milestone in its history. As announced in a press release sent to the media, Cody’s company, The Young Bucks and the Khan family has reached 100,000 tickets sold for their events since its inaugural staging, last month of May, with Double Or Nothing.
In just eight months and with a total of 16 live shows held, AEW has overcome the barrier of 100,000 tickets sold in its first year of existence, reaching 105,303 today. This means an average attendance of 5,701 audiences in the different events held to date (the 11 episodes of Dynamite, Double Or Nothing, Fyter Fest, Fight For The Fallen, ALL OUT and Full Gear). It has to be taken into account, however, that tickets can already be purchased for some Dynamite episodes that will be held in 2020.
“A year ago we had not yet announced the creation of AEW and our first show was not held until the end of May. Today, we celebrate having sold more than 100,000 tickets. It has been an incredible journey and a sample of the great work of our talent, our TNT partners and our wonderful fans. All of them have made it possible. Best of all, this is just the beginning, “said AEW President Tony Khan.
All Elite Wrestling wanted to take advantage of the moment to celebrate the success of its weekly Dynamite program. Its debut episode on TNT was the best premiere of the chain of the last five years and, through its 11 episodes broadcast to date, the program has exceeded ten million viewers despite competing directly with WWE NXT.
In the press release, the company has also reaffirmed the willingness to get involved in social initiatives with the aim that all fans have access to their product regardless of their condition. For this reason, AEW has announced an agreement with the company KultureCity to celebrate the first “sensitive” wrestling event, inclusive for people with “unique abilities”, for example, autism.
In addition, he has established collaborations with Stella’s Wish to turn cancer patients’ dreams into reality and with Special Olympics.
