All Elite Wrestling (AEW) announced yesterday that the company is going to resume touring next month, starting with the July 7 episode of AEW Dynamite which is scheduled for Miami.
This is big news, especially considering it was reported that WWE was hoping to have the SummerSlam event in August as the first show back with live crowds, meaning they’ll potentially be six weeks behind AEW.
Some speculated that WWE could bring forward its plans in response, but reliable Twitter source WrestleVotes seems to suggest that WWE is currently happy keeping with its original plans to have touring resume in August.
From a few sources I’ve asked, it doesn’t seem like AEW starting back on the road in July will impact WWE’s return to touring plans. While this could change as Vince & Co like to be number 1 for these types of things, as of today, it still looks like August for them.
In fairness to WWE, the company has not been phased with what AEW has been doing over recent months. AEW has had fans back at Daily’s Place for a while now, but WWE is still running with only virtual fans in the ThunderDome.
