All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has reason to celebrate as the company's pre-sale tickets for the All-In event at Wembley Stadium in London, England, have surpassed 60,000 on the first day of general sales. This is an impressive feat for the wrestling organization, founded in January 2019.
AEW Owner Tony Khan revealed that the company had already sold over 50,000 tickets during the pre-sale, which lasted three days before going public on Friday. The company has yet to announce the exact number of tickets sold, but some reports suggest it could be as high as 70,000.
AEW superstar Chris Jericho took to Twitter to express his excitement over the milestone. Jericho has been with the company since its inception and has emerged as a locker room leader. He tweeted, "They said we couldn't do it….and yet here we are at 60,000 tickets sold by the first day of general sales!!
@aew has created a MONSTER…, and I plan to lead the charge. See you in August @wembleystadium! #TheOcho#JerichoForever#AllIn @QueenWillRock”.

Jericho pays homage to pop culture in an AEW tweet.
Chris Jericho's reference to "The Ocho" is a nod to the cult classic movie "Dodgeball," while "JerichoForever" is one of his popular hashtags.
The tweet also references Queen's iconic song "We Will Rock You," which AEW has used as a theme song for some of its events. The All In event is scheduled for August 27th and is expected to be a pay-per-view event. With the overwhelming response to ticket sales, AEW has plenty of time to build the show and sell even more tickets.
AEW has been making waves in the wrestling world since its inception, providing a viable alternative to the long-dominant WWE. While the ratings for AEW Dynamite were down this week, the impressive ticket sales for All In show that the company has a dedicated and passionate fanbase. It will be interesting to see how AEW continues to grow and compete with WWE in the future.
