This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite was an enormous present for just a few causes. First, it was the Brodie Lee tribute version of the weekly tv present for the promotion.
The second cause is because of what number of followers have been in attendance for it. Clearly, when the COVID-19 pandemic first began, all wrestling promotions couldn’t have followers in attendance. AEW was one of many first to have some followers in attendance for his or her TV and pay-per-view occasions from Each day’s Place.
Dave Meltzer reported within the newest version of the Wrestling Observer E-newsletter that Wednesday’s Dynamite drew 1,080 followers. This was a sellout based mostly on the present arrange as there have been 900 paid and 180 comps.
Meltzer identified how “it was the second-largest American professional wrestling crowd for the reason that pandemic began and AEW’s largest since pre-COVID.”
Most tickets have been bought prematurely as AEW initially introduced that AEW World Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega would defend the title towards Rey Fenix on the present, however AEW determined to do a tribute version for Lee, who handed away final weekend, as a substitute.
AEW has solely been permitting between 10-15% capability for its reveals.
