AEW struggling with ticket sales for the first several episodes of Collision
Tickets are now on sale for five of the first six episodes of AEW Collision except for the very first episode as the official location won’t be announced until this coming Wednesday on Dynamite. So far, AEW is struggling with ticket sales and Twitter account @WrestleTix provided the following numbers via Patreon…
* 1,599 tickets distributed for 6/24/2023 in Toronto, ON at Scotiabank Arena
* 569 tickets distributed for 6/29/2023 in Hamilton, ON at FirstOntario Centre
* 1,285 tickets distributed for 7/8/2023 in Regina, SK at Brandt Centre
* 3,108 tickets distributed for 7/15/2023 in Calgary, AB at Scotiabank Saddledome
* 3,247 tickets distributed for 7/22/2023 in Newark, NJ at Prudential Center
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com addressed the ticket sales…
“I’ll tell you what, they don’t have a big buzz for Collision. Newark has about 3,500 tickets out, and it’s — you would want more — for the New York market it would be the weakest opening since they’ve been going to the market.”
“Toronto is like 1,600 and that’s the day before the pay-per-view (Forbidden Door 2) that sold out instantly, and Toronto is a great market. And I heard from some people in Toronto like the publicity of it, nobody knew till Wednesday, and that’s not good. Hamilton, that’s sold under the 600 range, so really bad advances, so not a good sign.” (quotes courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
As previously noted, it’s believed that the first episode of Collision will take place at the United Center in Chicago, IL if CM Punk is appearing. If Punk isn’t going to appear, the event will possibly be moved to Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL.
In the Hamilton seating chart screenshot, the blue seats are the ones that are currently available as of Monday morning. Most of the lower deck and entire upper deck sections have not been put on sale.
