The wrestling universe is witnessing an unprecedented surge in popularity, with both WWE and AEW shattering ticket sale records. As both wrestling giants carve out a niche for themselves in this golden era of professional wrestling, MJF, AEW World Champion, didn't hold back in expressing his take on these monumental achievements.
Last week, when WrestleMania 40 tickets were released to the public, WWE saw a tremendous response. The company managed to eclipse its historical gate record in a mere day by selling over 90,000 tickets. This monumental sale is spread across the two-event nights, showcasing fans' unwavering passion for the brand.
But the WWE isn't alone in its triumphs. AEW is gearing up for a groundbreaking UK debut with its 'All In' event at the renowned Wembley Stadium on August 27th. As of the latest count on August 18th, ticket sales for the spectacle stood at a whopping 80,846.
This impressive number has surpassed WWE's previous record attendance of 80,709, which was achieved at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas.
MJF Celebrates Wrestling Triumphs
Reacting to this wave of success in the wrestling industry, the current AEW World Champion, MJF, made his voice heard.
Taking to his social media platforms, he hailed the achievements of both promotions. Still, he quickly brought the spotlight back onto himself—his post read: “Both companies are setting attendance/gate records left and right.
Pro wrestling is winning. The fans are winning. But most importantly, and I think we can all agree on this, I’m winning. #Betterthanyou”. The big question remains: what is on the horizon for MJF at AEW's 'All In'? Fans are in for a treat as MJF has not one but two high-profile bouts lined up.
He will join forces with Adam Cole to take on Aussie Open for the coveted ROH Tag Team Championship during the pre-show in a thrilling development. Additionally, in a turn of events with fans buzzing with excitement, MJF and Cole are scheduled to collide in a one-on-one clash for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship.
