While All Elite Wrestling has been spending the past several
weeks hyping their upcoming weekly TNT show and announcing several matches and
appearances for its first five episodes, it appears that there’s a bit of an issue
with the ticket sales for AEW’s TNT premiere.
As per Dave Meltzer, there
is a huge amount of tickets still available on the secondary market for AEW’s October
2nd TNT debut.
Based on the impressive demand for tickets for AEW’s previous shows, scalpers swooped in to buy up a large chunk of tickets for AEW’s first
three TNT episodes. Now while these scalpers have managed to turn a quick buck
on the tickets for Boston and Philadelphia – Boston tickets reportedly going
for triple that of face value – the trouble is in shifting the tickets for that
Washington, D.C. debut episode.
According to Uncle Dave, there are still approximately 4,700
secondary tickets available for AEW’s big TNT premiere. So low is demand in the
secondary market for tickets to this first TV episode, that some scalpers are
offering up tickets for just $8 apiece.
One would have to think that scalpers will get more and more
desperate to shift these tickets the closer it gets to October 2nd – but right
now, AEW’s grand TV debut could look a little less than impressive if 4,700
tickets do not manage to find genuine homes.
