Report: AEW Tickets Selling Faster Than WWE's In Some Markets
Are fans losing interest in WWE?
WWE and All Elite Wrestling are set to go back on the road next month. AEW's first show outside of Jacksonville, Florida is scheduled for July 7, while WWE's first main roster event with fans since WrestleMania 37 will be the July 16 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
Both companies plan to remain on the road and they are selling live event tickets for shows across the United States.
WWE's resumption of touring could be a bad sign for the company, though, as Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that the company's ticket sales are "scary bad" in some places and are below AEW on a per-show basis. WWE has sold under 2,000 tickets so far at a lot of venues they are running.
Both WWE and AEW are running shows in the Charlotte, Jacksonville, Dallas and Miami markets. WWE is performing well in the Dallas market, but AEW is ahead in Charlotte and Miami. Neither company is doing well in Miami, however.
AEW is also ahead in Jacksonville, a city that is considered the company's home base.
