How’s this for a return to touring? The world’s largest tennis stadium is hosting All Elite Wrestling or any wrestling, for the first time ever. AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam fires off on Wednesday, September 22nd.
The company became the first in the US to come back to touring with shows starting July 7th in Miami. Tony Khan, CEO, GM, and Head of Creative for AEW had this to say:
“We wanted our first show in New York City to be extraordinary and epic in scale, and there’s no better venue to bring out the best in our talent and creativity than the iconic USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. We love the concept of wrestling in a non-traditional venue and placing our AEW ring on center court in the awe-inspiring Arthur Ashe Stadium. I can’t wait for fans to experience our live AEW DYNAMITE: GRAND SLAM show in one of the coolest venues on the planet.”
AEW is airing a special Friday night edition this week, June 18th at 10:00pm ET/7:00pm PT.
