Tony Khan has been teasing a big announcement that he would reveal on the April 5 episode of AEW Dynamite.
Right before the main event between FTR and The Gunns, Nigel appeared with Khan to reveal the date and venue for the first U.K. show. The show will take place on Sunday, August 27 for the first-ever AEW: All In show in London, England at Wembley Stadium.
Tickets for AEW: All In London at Wembley Stadium go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 5 at 9 a.m. BST. Effective immediately, fans in the UK can pre-register for early access to event tickets at ticketmaster.co.uk/AEWWembley. Pre-registered access and priority presales will take place prior to the general on-sale date. Beginning May 5, tickets can be purchased at ticketmaster.co.uk/AEWWembley.
“The UK is one of the most important markets in professional wrestling, and AEW is coming in hot as the number one wrestling company in the UK on television,” said Khan. “We want our debut in London to be epic in scale, and there’s no better venue than Wembley Stadium to deliver what I know will be one of the greatest events in AEW’s history. This April also marks 100 years of Warner Bros. and 100 years of Wembley Stadium — it’s a fitting time to come together for ‘AEW: All In London at Wembley Stadium.’”
Before AEW was officially founded, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and Cody Rhodes produced the biggest independent show and the first non-WWE or WCW event to sell 10,000 tickets since the 90s called All In. The success of this event would of course be the catalyst for the creation of All Elite Wrestling.
