AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter earlier today to announce that the gate for this week’s Grand Slam special from Arthur Ashe Stadium has already surpassed last year’s total, and very close to becoming the company’s first-ever million dollar gate for a television recording. He’s also teasing some potential surprises for the show, which will be topped off by Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson battling it out to determine a new AEW World Champion.
Khan writes: “Exceeded 2021 @AEW Grand Slam gate; now SO close to the FIRST $1 million @AEWonTV gate, after 3 consecutive PPVs reaching $1 million for the first time. I promise you don’t want to miss Grand Slam, super card + maybe something up my sleeve LIVE on TBS + tickets.”

Last year’s Grand Slam featured the dream match between Kenny Omega and Bryan Danielson, considered by many to be the greatest match in Dynamite history.
