Chris Jericho Predicts Tickets For AEW's First UK Show Will Sell Out Within An Hour

Chris Jericho is certain that AEW’s UK debut will be a financial success

All Elite Wrestling will finally make their long-awaited UK debut this year, with a show at Fulham’s Craven Cottage long touted by fans and wrestlers alike.

Regardless of when an AEW UK show takes place, Chris Jericho is adamant that it’ll be a success and reckons tickets will quickly sell out, saying the following to The Daily Star:

"Working with Tony Khan and the Khan family, they have a lot of inroads. Owning Fulham in London probably helped us get on ITV in a very good spot. I think Chris Jericho being involved definitely helps, and probably helps in Canada, too, where we do huge numbers.

“Had there not been a worldwide pandemic, we probably would’ve come to London. I know at one point there was a plan to go in the summer of 2020. In the meantime, the ratings have done so well, and I think it’s because we put on a very exciting show. I can’t wait to go to England for the first time and if we go to Craven Cottage I bet you we'll sell it out in an hour. We just have that buzz going to places for the first time,” said Jericho.

AEW did announce in November 2022 that the UK show will happen this year, and the UK is still one of the hottest wrestling markets in the world, with WWE’s recent sell-out of Money in the Bank in London’s O2 evidence of this.
