• CM Punk Retuning For AEW All In 2023?
AEW All In 2023 will take place at the Wembley Stadium in London on August 27th.
This will be the first professional wrestling event in the Wembley Stadium in over 30 years.
With 90,000 seats, it is the largest stadium in the UK and the second-largest stadium in Europe.
Many fans believe that All Elite Wrestling won’t be able to sell out the complete stadium.
However, during an interview with Uproxx, AEW World Tag Team Champions FTR noted that they’d be able to sell a decent amount of tickets by bringing back CM Punk, who got suspended last year after a backstage fight.
Below is what FTR said:
“CM Punk and FTR vs. The Elite. That’s gotta be it, right? If you want to sell 50,000 tickets to take this company to the next level, that’s me dreaming. That’s the dream match. That in Wembley Stadium could help launch AEW to the next level.”
“Wembley Stadium is huge for AEW. AEW has to be ambitious right now. We’ve done so much as a company over the past 3 years that everybody said we couldn’t do. When Tony said we’re going to sell 20,000 (at Arthur Ashe Stadium for Grand Slam), that seemed ridiculous to people at the time.
Everybody wants to keep moving the goalposts. Everybody wants to keep saying you can’t do this. I love that we’re going to Wembley because even if it’s not completely to the brim full, 50, 60, 70,000, whatever it ends up being, that’s huge for this company.”
