AEW Dynamite Grand Slam on September 22 is now the largest live event in AEW history.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that this episode could soon become the largest-drawing non-WWE wrestling event in over 22 years.
The show surpassed 15,000 tickets sold and tickets are at 16,270. This is just short of the 16,534 fans that attended NJPW/ROH G1 Supercard on April 6, 2019.
The last non-WWE show in the United States to outdraw WWE was the January 5, 1999 episode of WCW Nitro at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. That show had 25,338 fans and 19,456 paid.
