AEW announced the paid attendance for All In 2023 at Wembley Stadium to be 81,035. However, 72,265 people were actually in attendance.
The Freedom of Information office for the Brent Civic Centre issued the following statement:
“The actual numbers registered entering [Wembley] Stadium through the turnstiles was 72,265 – this is reflective of what attended on the night and not the total number of tickets sold or no-shows etc.”
The turnstile count for WWE’s WrestleMania 32 PPV in 2016 was 80,709, as confirmed by the Arlington Police. WWE announced the attendance on that night to be 101,763, which Vince McMahon said included ushers and ticket takers.
Brandon Thurston further added:
“Wembley’s website says there are 160 suites holding 8 to 20 people each. Total, that’s less than 3,200 attendees that could possibly be added to the turnstile count of 72,265.
That’s not enough to get to WrestleMania 32’s 80,709 turnstile count, even if that number already includes all suite attendees for that event.
WrestleMania 32 seems to be the verifiable most-attended wrestling event, North Korea shows excluded.”
During the All In post-show press conference, AEW President Tony Khan repeatedly said that he’s very happy that All Elite Wrestling now holds the record for the highest paid attendance for a pro-wrestling event.
However, after this report came out, many fans are claiming that Khan bought almost 10,000 tickets himself.
