The first photos and videos from Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City make the rounds for tonight’s Grand Slam edition of AEW Dynamite.
The setup for this year’s Grand Slam show is a little different from last year’s. This year’s decor includes a large video wall on stage.
Unlike the inaugural Grand Slam event in 2021, it looks like tonight’s show won’t be sold out. It was noticed by WrestlingTix that 3,020 tickets were available as of approximately 4:00 p.m. ET today, with 12,412 tickets distributed for the set-up/capacity of 15,432 seats. It was reported that AEW attracted 20,144 fans to the 2021 event, of which 18,300 paid.
AEW president Tony Khan announced this week that tonight’s taping is officially the company’s highest-grossing television event since its launch in 2019.
Below are photos and videos from Arthur Ashe Stadium, including a message from Lee Moriarty, along with the current lineup for tonight’s episode:
