Tony Khan Announces AEW Will Return To New York Mulitple Times Before The Next Grand Slam Event
AEW is coming off of its biggest show to date at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The Grand Slam event saw the first match of Bryan Danielson, as he went the distance in a match against The AEW Champion Kenny Omega. It is now looking like AEW president Tony Khan is looking to make Grand Slam an annual event. It also looks like AEW will be returning to New York a few more times before the next Grand Slam.
While speaking to PW Insider, Tony Khan went into AEW’s plans for the future, particularly in the New York area. He said that they are already planning for a Long Island return in December and there are several stops they want to make in that market before coming back to Queens for another Grand Slam event.
Arthur Ashe Stadium, I would love to return for AEW Grand Slam next year, and I think we’re working towards doing that and I think it’s a great annual event for us. I know that we’ll be back in Long Island in December, and I have plans to return to the market several times between now and the next Grand Slam event. Even though we may not always run the same venues or in the same exact parts of the New York area, New York-New Jersey area, I should say we, it means a lot to be up there. There’s great fans, and we had great turnout when we ran Newark. We had great turnout at Arthur Ashe and I expect a great turnout in Long Island when we we’re one of the first events at the new UBS Arena.
It Is noted that Grand Slam was the first wrestling event to ever be held at Arthur Ashe Stadium, so it will be interesting to see if AEW will be able to top this year’s show next year if it does come to fruition that Grand Slam becomes an annual event.
