AEW Made Change To All In 2024 To Accommodate Taylor Swift
AEW All In 2024 changed to accommodate Taylor Swift. No, really
All Elite Wrestling are set to return to London’s Wembley Stadium in August 2024 for AEW All In II, the sequel to AEW’s biggest show ever.
Pre-sale for the event opened this week, and during an interview with The Daily Mail, AEW President Tony Khan revealed how the company have tweaked plans to accommodate Taylor Swift:
“If you look at the calendar of Wembley Stadium events for August of 2024, you'll see that scheduled ahead of us is Taylor Swift and Taylor Swift being scheduled at Wembley Stadium ahead of AEW is a big deal. And I have some interesting stories about how all of this came to be and where we're at. It's very, very fun.
“So, when Wembley approached us about our load-in and about these Taylor Swift shows, there was an opportunity for them to add more shows and we are going to do everything we can to abbreviate our load in time. So basically, they came to us and said it would help us out a lot if you could load in your show faster because we'd have the opportunity to have more Taylor Swift shows, and could you guys do that? And we said, well, it'll be costly and very challenging, and we really would like to help you out. And so yeah, I will.
“And I think there's so many great Taylor Swift fans and Wembley's been great to us. We have a great relationship and it's going to cost more, and we will double our efforts and hopefully score points with a lot of great fans and a great community of Taylor Swift fans. So, if we can make more Taylor Swift shows in London possible by speeding up our load-in and I pay a little bit extra to do so, but we still have a great event at Wembley. Everybody wins. And I'm not going to get crushed or killed in the process, so I'm fine with that. And I think a little bit of extra money and a little bit of extra human power getting the show put on, it's worth it,” said Khan.
Like Swift famously sang, Khan hoped that his gesture would earn AEW ‘Good Karma’ with Wembley:
“From a logistical standpoint, that'll be a little bit of a different challenge. We won't have as much time to set up as we did, but I'm also happy to accommodate that because I think that's going to be good karma for us. And then in addition to that, I believe that, yeah, I do think it's going to be good karma. And I also think really to bring in a star like Will Ospreay ahead of tickets going on sale in London and to be able to bring one of England's greatest wrestlers of my lifetime, and somebody that the British wrestling fans are going to be so happy to see and fans all over the world want to come see. I think that's really big, and we just have so many exciting things happening,” continued Khan.
Whilst Swifties recently clashed with WWE’s Grayson Waller, hopefully they’ll have a kinder view of AEW, and Taylor Swift’s long-time family friend Jeff Jarrett. No, actually.
