Tony Khan issues statement regarding AEW All In ticket sales and calls out ESPN reporter

On Tuesday, May 2nd 2023, a pre-sale began for the All In event at Wembley Stadium in London, England. According to AEW President Tony Khan, over 36,000 tickets have already been sold. With that figure, AEW has easily shattered their all-time attendance record which was the 2021 Grand Slam edition of Dynamite in Queens, NY.

Some fans on social media complained about issues with Ticketmaster. More tickets will be available when the public sale begins on Friday. At this time, AEW has not announced any matches for the card nor how the event will be broadcasted.

AEW President Tony Khan issued the following statement…

“Today’s one of the best days in @AEW history. Thank you to all buying #AEWAllIn tickets today, off to an AMAZING start already 36,000 sold for £3.8M ($4.7M) + we’re only getting started, more great seats are going on-sale! Let’s celebrate TOMORROW on Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite.”

ESPN’s Mike Coppinger tweeted the following…

“Hearing Wembley is scaled for only 40K for AEW – far cry from last April when I was ringside for Tyson Fury-Dillian Whyte and it was packed to the brim with 94,000. Nothing beats the big-fight feel at Wembley.”

Here was Tony Khan’s response…

“LIES. What a load of crap. Tell your agent Nick Khan to shove it up his ass.”

“Since you carry the credentials of a credible reporter + represent the Worldwide Leader, I’m just curious: who was your source for this, and how can a reporter representing ESPN tweet something about a legit news story that’s so blatantly wrong and easily verified as a falsehood?”
