As many of you know, AEW will be returning to the road with a Dynamite TV taping on July 7 in Miami, FL.

During a recent interview with UPI, AEW President Tony Khan commented on having fans back and not wanting to replicate WWE’s ThunderDome concept during the pandemic. He said,

“Early in the pandemic, I was like let’s create the experience of a drive-in movie. The fans make for a better product. We’re finally selling ringside seats again, and we’ll be doing that every week going forward. I didn’t want to have a video wall, and I pushed back when I got pushed to do a video wall. It was a fine idea and WWE did it, but it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I respect it, it’s good and it’s economical, but I wanted to continue to find a way to do the shows for the fans every week. And the fans at Daily’s Place supported us. We built like a wrestling territory having a weekly audience. I’m really proud of that.”
