Chris Jericho Predicts AEW All In Will Be A Cultural Event In The UK

Chris Jericho wouldn't be surprised if over 60,000 fans were inside Wembley Stadium for AEW All In

Chris Jericho is expecting big things from All Elite Wrestling's All In show at Wembley Stadium later this year, with the event expected to be the biggest show in the promotion's history. 

Jericho said on the Battleground podcast:

"From a business standpoint, it was a great move and big time move for Tony Khan to book Wembley. There have been a couple of times over the years; first time in Toronto, 'Should have booked a stadium.' First time in Los Angeles, 'Should have booked a stadium.' This time, our first time in the UK, 'Should've booked a stadium,' we do, and of course, people are like, 'You're crazy. It's too big.' We could have done the O2, which is a great arena, we could have done Craven Cottage, which is the venue Tony owns, I believe, with Fulham. Going to Wembley is like, 'Hold my beer, check this s**t out.' It's going to be massive and has the potential to sell even more than what the pundits are expecting because I think it's going to be a cultural event.

"The fact is, when something becomes cool, that's when more people want to go. Not to mention the fact that we have a huge television presence and a huge fanbase in the UK. I'm not guaranteeing it or predicting it, but it wouldn't surprise me if we ended up with 60,000 to 70,000 people in that joint."

Selling 40,000 tickets would be considered a success within AEW, according to reports. The promotion paid $400,000 to rent Wembley Stadium for All In, with the show set to take place on Sunday, August 27 over what is a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK. 

Tickets for AEW All In go on sale on Friday, May 5. 45,000 had signed up for the presale as of April 13.
