AEW is close to a big change

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is now known for adopting a quarterly pay-per-view scheme that is interspersed with several special episodes with various names that are staged on Dynamite and sometimes at the weekend as in the case of Battle Of The Belts.

Speaking at Terrificon (via Fandom Spotlite), Dustin Rhodes was asked if there will be a chance to see a major AEW pay-per-view event in a WWE-style stadium and the wrestler replied: "The UK, our UK television is doing well.

Tony's football team is right there and they want to manage Craven Cottage, probably 40-50,000 people. I guarantee you it would be sold out. Would we sell out in US stadiums? It is growth. It takes time for these things to happen.

It won't happen overnight, but we'll get there. Hopefully, one day, like in Chicago, in the United Center, we will collide with 19,000 people. If we were to adopt a stadium show, I hope we would do well for a Double or Nothing or All Out.

Do I know if we will sell out? I have no idea. I hope so, but we don't always have to. There are these arenas that are fine. I think we're going now for the two-day events, for the pay-per-view. I believe. I've heard it around. It will be like a WrestleMania experience, you have two days of Double or Nothing or two days of All Out or Revolution."

AEW wants to improve

Tony Khan had already talked about the thing in a media call on the occasion of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, saying that obviously it is also a marketing move and that with all the athletes who are there and in WWE, it is not to be underestimated as a choice.

to divide the events into two nights. WWE began doing this with Wrestlemania during the outbreak of the COVID pandemic and is continuing to do so even now for its biggest show of the year. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently spoke about AEW personalities having genuine fun making their product.

“I agree with a lot of it, but the one thing I think even WWE, the company that I worked for, needs to keep an eye on, one thing that I’ve always noticed is, there doesn’t have to be a whole lot of people there, but if you see it on television, and it looks like it’s a lot of people there and it looks like that everybody’s having fun, you feel like you missed out on something,” Booker T noted.
