AEW news items regarding The Elite’s suspensions, Bandido, and weak ticket sales

Here are a few AEW news items via Dave Meltzer of and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter

* It’s being said that The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) haven’t heard anything from AEW regarding their suspensions as of a few days ago. Meltzer wrote the following…

“The company hasn’t and won’t address anything regarding pretty much anything these days on these type of subjects, but the belief is that their situation is on hold pending potential legal action, which unless cleared up, could delay things for some time and there is also a second hold up that hasn’t been made clear.”

* Following his performance against Chris Jericho at the September 28th 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite, Bandido was offered a full-time contract immediately. Bandido was seen hugging AEW President Tony Khan on the stage following the match.

* Meltzer noted that upcoming advances for AEW live events “do not tell a good story at all.” Meltzer mentioned that the only ticket sales considered to be “good” at the moment are the Dynamite debut in Toronto on October 12th, the Full Gear PPV on November 19th in Newark, and the Dynamite debut in Seattle on January 4th 2023. Ticket sales for upcoming events in Chicago, Boston, Atlantic City, and Bridgeport are said to be down from previous visits.
