According to a report from The Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast’s Andrew Zarian, AEW will be returning to New York in December. The event will be taking place on December 8 at the UBS Arena in Long Island. This will be a live episode of AEW Dynamite.
Of course, AEW will be making its official New York City debut on September 22 at Arthur Ashe Stadium. They will then head to the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY the following week for Dynamite.
According to the official Twitter account of WrestleTix, AEW will be running the UBS Arena just nine days after WWE RAW will be held at the same venue. The arena can hold around 14,000 fans for pro wrestling.
