Yesterday, All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes reiterated on Wrestling Observer Radio that the young promotion was planning to head to the UK in 2020. While he failed to give any dates, The American Nightmare did say AEW will be looking to provide an update soon.
Now, his brother Dustin Rhodes has shed more light on what AEW’s visit to the UK will entail. Similar to Cody, he said the promotion may do a mini-tour across the pond, but fans will seemingly have to wait a while longer to see Dynamite or a pay-per-view in the United Kingdom. During an interview with Alex McCarthy at talkSPORT, The Natural revealed AEW’s mini-tour would be “probably just live events,” but he did say there was a slim chance they could do a week-long visit and record an episode for TV.
Dustin said: “Rumour has it that we may be doing a little mini-tour over there in the UK. And I hope so, I hope that’s true. Definitely want to hit London, man. London is a good town for us, good town for wrestling. All the UK is, man. The UK has got deep roots in wrestling and they love wrestling. So hopefully, sooner rather than later, we’re going to get over there.”
When asked about what AEW would be doing in the UK, Rhodes said: “Probably just live events. But you never know. We could be over there for a week and shoot a TV somewhere, I don’t know.”
