Both WWE SummerSlam and AEW All In are continuing to experience major success with ticket sales.
Dave Meltzer provided some updated notes on how both events are doing in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
With SummerSlam, set for Detroit, Michigan's Ford Field on Saturday, August 5th, Meltzer wrote that 45,971 tickets are out for the event with the announcement of Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso and stipulations for the other matches helping move things along.

Meltzer noted why he feels it will be the biggest SummerSlam in recent history:
"It’s a virtual lock, given the growth of Peacock and the growth of WWE popularity this year, that it will be the most number of people watching in North America or any SummerSlam show in history. It will be the second largest attendance (it won’t beat the 1992 show at Wembley Stadium) and will likely be the largest gate for any non-WrestleMania show ever in the U.S. (the target is $7.3 million based on how gates are usually measured and $7.7 million that WWE announced for Royal Rumble including Ticketmaster fees)."
AEW All In
AEW's first-ever trip to the United Kingdom on Sunday, August 27th at London's Wembley Stadium continues to climb the record books.
Meltzer reported that as of now, there are 76,929 tickets distributed (approximately 70,400 paid) for a gate of $9 million USD. That puts them less than 4000 tickets shy of WWE WrestleMania 32's attendance as they ascend the charts of the most attended wrestling shows ever for a paid audience.
From the newsletter:
"It looks like a good bet to be the largest recorded attendance in history aside from the New Japan shows in North Korea in 1995 which were not paid attendance. It is now No. 5 all-time when it comes to attendance at actual paying shows and the WrestleMania III mark is probably a week to ten days away from being broken and with a month left, the 80,709 total now looks like it’s being broken. The actual all-time paid record is certainly possible but far from a sure thing. There are 10,896 tickets still left so the potential looks to be 87,825 total."
