AEW Rampage in Chicago Sells Out in 15-Minutes

The headline says it all. AEW Rampage: The First Dance, a show that was just announced and has no card, sold out the United Center in 15-minutes.

Again, for the WWE fanboys in the basement, a show with no card, that was just announced in a city that has a major PPV coming, sold out the “Madhouse on Madison,” the home of the Blackhawks and Bulls, in 15-minutes.

Nope, clearly AEW isn’t competition to the WWE (insert sarcasm font).

Now Tony Khan and company have to deliver the goods. It’s LIKELY that CM Punk is going to debut for AEW at this show but it has to be a damn certainty or AEW will really piss off a lot of people.

AEW Sells 10,000-plus Tickets for Rampage: The First Dance

AEW will always have Jacksonville as it’s “home” but Chicago might be turning into their second city (yup). The brand is set to sell out their fourth show in the Windy City, a show that was just announced and is 2-weeks before a PPV-based trifecta.

Rumor has it someone might be showing up.

That’s not too shabby for a company that Vince NcMahon doesn’t consider competition. For AEW it might just be clobbering’ time.

All Elite Wrestling’s New York City debut is already off to a fast start. According to WrestleTix (you should follow), AEW has sold approximately 8,500 pre-sale tickets for their September 22 show at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens.

Hector Lombard won the BKFC Cruiserweight Championship in controversial fashion defeating Joe Riggs by doctor’s stoppage. But that might not be the craziest moment to come out of the fight.

Lorenzo Hunt entered the ring as Lombard was beginning his post-fight interview and a Johnny Wagon ensued. Lombard wasn’t thrilled with the intrusion threw a quick one-two.
