Recent AEW signee Tony Schiavone made the announcement of the location on the latest episode of Being the Elite. It's appropriate, given how intertwined Schiavone has been with wrestling in the Carolinas going back close to four decades.
The event takes place at the 9600-seat Bojangles Coliseum, which played host to WCW Starrcade 1993, back when it was still called Independence Arena. It was there that 8200 fans witnessed hometown legend Ric Flair dramatically defeat World Champion Vader in a highly-emotional main event.
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 6 at noon eastern time.
The location list for the first six episodes of AEW on TNT now looks like this:
*October 2 - Capital One Arena, Washington, DC
*October 9 - Agganis Arena, Boston, MA
*October 16 - Liacouras Center, Philadelphia, PA
*October 23 - Petersen Events Center, Pittsburgh, PA
*October 30 - Charleston Coliseum, Charleston, WV
*November 6 - Bojangles Coliseum, Charlotte, NC
