AEW will be returning to New York City at the USTA Arthur Ashe Stadium later this year. The company held its first stadium show there last September with a Grand Slam special edition of Dynamite, with an impressive 20,000 fans in attendance.
During an interview with News 12 Long Island, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that AEW Grand Slam will be returning:
“Yes, I expect we’ll be back to have AEW Grand Slam Dynamite and Rampage back in Queens at Arthur Ashe Stadium again. It was a huge success for everyone involved and it’s all thanks to this great partnership with the USTA. They were so kind and I think it resulted in a big partnership. It was almost the first million-dollar gate in AEW history just came shy of that but it was really close and of course, we set that record now for AEW Double or Nothing in Las Vegas….We will be back and it will be another hopefully a huge success going back to Queens for AEW Dynamite Grand Slam and Rampage later this year in 2022 again.”
