• Why Bret Hart Won’t Appear At AEW’s Wembley Stadium PPV

Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling will hold its biggest show to date, the AEW All In 2023 pay-per-view at the famous Wembley Stadium – the location of SummerSlam 1992 – in London, England on August 27th.

Since WWF Legend “The British Bulldog” Davey Smith passed away in 2002, all Tony could do is bring in Davey’s son Harry Smith (fka David Hart Smith) or – in a non-wrestling role – Davey’s SummerSlam 1992 opponent Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart.

While having Harry Smith there for an actual match is obviously a good idea, as he’s currently a free agent anyway, The Hitman won’t be appearing at the show.

Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported:

“Obviously, there has been a lot of UK sentiment toward Tony Khan to bring in Smith Jr, since he’s already there, and Bret Hart, for an appearance on this show.

I don’t believe Hart can legally appear due to his WWE deal, as that’s the reason Hart has never appeared on an episode of Impact.”

AEW All In is currently set up for 74,000 fans. 65,584 tickets have been sold so far. Will Ospreay is booked for a match at this event.
