After beating Raw in the 18- 49 demo for the last two weeks, it appears AEW is beating them in the ticket sale now as well.
On November 20th this year, The UBS Arena in Elmont, New York will open to the public and begin to hold events with a max capacity of over 18,000. The first wrestling event to take place in this arena will be the November 29th edition of Monday Night Raw. However even though the WWE will be at The UBS Arena first it appears that AEW is smashing them in ticket sales.
Now, AEW Dynamite and Rampage tapings which take place over a week later on December 8th within The UBS Arena have managed to sell 6,167 tickets out of their 8,851 available tickets. This equals to a stellar 70% of total tickets being sold.
At the moment, WWE have their RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton, Drew McIntyre, Nikki A.S.H, Kofi Kingston and Bobby Lashley. All currently advertised for this edition of RAW at the arena.
While AEW only has MJF being featured on the event’s official poster and no other details have been announced and yet have managed to sell 70% of their total tickets.
With these kinds of statistics showing the clear gap in WWE and AEW live events ticket sales, could this show a possible path for the future of both wrestling companies.
