Dustin Rhodes Says AEW Will Eventually Start Running Two-Day PPVs
Bigger AEW shows on the way?
All Elite Wrestling's pay-per-views could be set to become bigger.
Dustin Rhodes revealed at Terrificon (via Fandom Spotlite ) that he has heard AEW will hold two-day pay-per-views "down the pike."
"UK, our television in the UK is doing well. Tony's soccer team is right there and he wants to run Craven Cottage, probably 40-50,000 people. I guarantee it would sell it out. Will we sell out United States stadiums? It's growth. It takes time to make these things happen. It's not going to happen overnight, but we will get there. Hopefully, someday, like Chicago, the United Center, we smack it out and it's 19,000 people," Rhodes said.
"If we did go to a stadium show, I hope that we would do well for a Double or Nothing or All Out, do I know if it's going to sell out? I have no idea. I would hope so, but we don't need to do those all the time. You have these arenas that are just fine. I think we're going to go to two-day events now, for pay-per-views. I believe. I've heard that down the pike. It'll be like a WrestleMania experience, you have two days of Double or Nothing or two days of All Out or Revolution."
New Japan Pro-Wrestling and WWE have run two-day pay-per-views in recent years for Wrestle Kingdom and WrestleMania. It has been suggested that Ring Of Honor could run a pay-per-view prior to a big AEW show since Tony Khan owns both promotions and the 39-year-old was open to the idea back in April.
