According to Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, roughly 72,500 fans were in the online queue to purchase tickets in the first 30 minutes of tickets going on sale for the All Elite Wrestling’s All Out event.
“I’ve never heard, and I would’ve heard, of any pro wrestling show that ever had this many people looking for tickets in history,” Meltzer said. “… The number is ridiculous, it’s like nothing that has ever been in wrestling.”
The arena has a capacity of roughly 11,000 and the show sold out in just 15 minutes. All tickets were sold in half the time it took for fans to buy every available ticket for its predecessor event from September 2018, All In.
The instant sellout is extremely encouraging for the upstart promotion, and marks the third consecutive sellout for AEW of a major pay-per-view.
So far two matches have been announced for All Out — Hangman Page vs. Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship and Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega.
Compared to WWE’s next show, Stomping Grounds, ticket sales have been very slow. As of this writing, seating charts for the event show plenty of seats still available per Ticketmaster.
