AEW held their first ever show in the United Kingdom on August 27th 2023, which was All In: London. 72,265 Fans attended this event, thus making it All Elite Wrestling’s biggest event to date.

Speaking on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins commented on AEW’s success and claimed that the pro wrestling business right now is bigger than it ever has been:

“We are in the boom. You have to understand, there is another company that just put 70,000 people in a stadium for one night. A week before that, we sold 90,000 tickets to WrestleMania, broke the all-time gate on the first day. There are seven, eight different television programs of pro wrestling on a week, not counting premium live events or pay-per-views.

The talent roster, across the board, is beyond what any generation has ever put forward. It’s very easy to look back at the past with rose-colored glasses and say, ‘but this, but that,’ I’m not taking anything away from the guys who paved the way, I stand on the shoulders of these guys. I don’t do what I do without the legends of our industry that have defined their own generations, but they should be proud, and I know they are, because they are the people who got us to where we are now.

The business is bigger than it’s ever been, it makes more money than ever, it’s healthier. The future of the business is so bright and I’m so happy to be a part of it in any capacity.

I can’t tell you the pride I take when I see young cats coming up and succeeding in our industry and pushing the thing forward or guys getting an opportunity to prove their worth, and they do because they are capable and seeing guys like Edge, who is close to deciding to hang it up one way or another, going out there and tear the house down with Sheamus in Toronto.

On every level, it’s just firing. I can’t say enough about our industry right now. I’m so proud of it. It’s healthier physically than it’s ever been. The longevity for our generation is going to be better than the generation before us because we learned and got smarter.

The business as a whole, the money, it’s all there. I can’t say enough, I really can’t.”
