AEW Working On Plans For Canada Debut, Huge Crowd Expected AEW

Individuals within AEW have reportedly been working on plans for the promotion’s debut show in Canada.

Per Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, tentative plans for the debut would see the show take place in Toronto.

Believing that an AEW show in Canada could draw 30,000 fans, Meltzer wrote:

“AEW has at least started work on the idea of a Canada debut in Toronto. It’s not yet known when and what arena they would run. If the debut would be a Saturday night PPV in November, they may want to take the chance of Rogers Centre, the former Skydome.

“I don’t think they could get 50,000 but people in the market tell me they believe they could get 30,000, but more likely they’d play it safe and run Scotiabank Arena.

“There is also the issue of their American fan base traveling to Canada and whether those restrictions will change to having it be relatively simple like it would have been pre-pandemic if they are going for a stadium show since much of their PPV audience is a traveling audience. A PPV there would theoretically sell out any arena they have.”

There has also recently been speculation about an AEW event in the UK, following Jim Ross discussing plans for AEW’s UK debut.
