AEW President Tony Khan announced on Twitter tonight that tomorrow’s Grand Slam Dynamite (recording of Grand Slam Rampage) is officially the company’s highest-grossing television event since its launch in 2019. Khan had tweeted earlier in the evening that he offered a special prize to whoever helped them break the $1 million milestone for the show, which takes place at the legendary Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York.
Khan initially wrote: “To celebrate the biggest live gate at AEW Grand Slam tomorrow night, we have a special gift for the ticket buyer that puts us at or above $1 million for the first time ever: a commemorative Grand Slam seat signed by top players of the Tournament of Champions!” Once that goal was met, Khan revealed the news from the record gate by writing: “Tomorrow’s AEW Grand Slam in New York City is now officially the highest-grossing event in @AEWonTV history!Tickets: Don’t miss the Grand Slam tv not live tomorrow on Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork + part 2 Friday Night #AEWRampage on @TNTdrama.”
Tomorrow’s show will be hosted by Jon Moxley challenging Bryan Danielson for the vacant AEW World Championship. Check out Khan’s tweets below.
