• AEW Outdrew WWE In Ticket Sales In September
According to the Wrestling Observer, the recent ticket sale numbers are showing that Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling is out-selling WWE.
Here’s the update:
“We’ll have more next week on this when I go through all the September business numbers, but AEW did outdraw WWE significantly per show. I’ll figure with and without Arthur Ashe Stadium.
For October advances, AEW is slightly ahead paid even though both Miami shows are not doing well. Really October looks closer to a dead heat with both companies way down from September because nobody has the big shows like AEW had in Newark and New York and WWE had in Philadelphia.”
