How AEW Collision Will Impact House Show Tour

How AEW Collision Will Impact House Show Tour AEW

An update has emerged on the future of AEW house shows, following the recent House Rules event tour.

On March 18, AEW held its first House Rules event in Troy, Ohio. This live event tour continued, with several shows taking place in May and June, and one more date confirmed for July.

It has now been indicated by Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that AEW may pause plans for future house shows with Collision set to debut.

Not expecting any top stars to be competing at house shows anytime soon, Meltzer said:

“AEW ran what may be its last house shows for a long time over the weekend. With them adding Collision, I don’t see house shows likely and there aren’t any more left on the schedule.

“Plus, as the word gets out that the top stars aren’t on these shows, unlike WWE which features top stars on its house shows, it would get harder to draw.

“The 6/2 show which went against Smackdown and Rampage on TV, in Tupelo, MS, drew just 1,576. The 6/3 show in Huntsville, AL, drew 2,237.

“One person brought up that a friend went to Huntsville largely because they expected merchandise would be easier to get because the lines are so long at AEW shows.

“But they had very little merchandise available and most of the most popular items weren’t there.”
