AEW UK Debut Confirmed? AEW

It seems UK-based AEW fans are in for a big treat within the next 12 months, with commentator Jim Ross appearing to confirm the promotion will be holding a show in the UK within the next year.

Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer spoke about AEW’s All-Atlantic Championship being defended by PAC in the UK, and went on to discuss AEW’s plans for a show in the UK.

“I didn’t understand that (creating the All-Atlantic Title), but it doesn’t matter what I understand. I’m not against it, but did we need it? I don’t know that we needed it, but I also don’t know how big of an asset it’s going to be internationally for us.

“I know that we’re going to go to places, like PAC is defending that title now in the UK I get it all the time. When are you guys coming to England? When are you going to do a pay-per-view? When are you going to do this? Well, when we come to England, you can bet your ass it’s going to be big. Tony’s got great business contacts there.

“But the key thing is AEW is definitely coming to the UK and it will be in the next calendar year. I know that for a fact. I don’t know the dates, but we’re all excited about that because we get great television ratings in the UK. So why not play off that?”

If and when AEW does come to the UK, many expect a potential show to be held at Craven Cottage, the stadium of Fulham Football Club, the team owned by Tony Khan’s family.

I’m sure we’ll get a “huge announcement” tease soon so Tony can make the announcement.
