• AEW Set A New Record With Last Night’s Dynamite

AEW held a LIVE episode of Dynamite last night at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles and later taped this Friday’s Rampage as well.

According to the Wrestling Observer, this episode of Dynamite set the record for the highest walk-up ticket sales in the company’s 4-year history:

“They set their record for the biggest last day of walk-up sale in the history of the company for a show that started at 4:30 in the afternoon.

That’s a very good sign, probably the best sign that they’ve had, no matter what the rating is, that the stuff is starting to take hold after a period where, for a lot of different reasons, stuff is bad. And they still have some advances that are bad.

There are some good ones and some bad ones, but this is a good one. It was one of the biggest pro-wrestling crowds ever in [The Forum’s history], obviously the second biggest gate at The Forum.

I’d have to look it up, but I believe the fourth biggest wrestling crowd in the history of The Forum. For a second show in, they held up. It wasn’t like the first, which was a legitimate sell-out, but it was a very good crowd… over $700,000 gate.”
