According to the Wrestling Observer, roughly 72,500 fans were in the queue waiting to purchase tickets for All Elite Wrestling’s August pay per view All Out from the Sears Centre in Chicago prior to it selling out. Reports state that based on how quickly the show sold-out, people logging in multiple times, fake accounts, and fans making an average order of at least three tickets, the number of tickets that could have been sold is closer to 130,000.
The Observer also notes if that number is accurate, the first 30 minutes for AEW All Out‘s ticket demand beat the demand for any WrestleMania in history, and would be the highest for any pro wrestling show ever. The only event that reportedly sold better was the UFC 134 show in Rio, where Anderson Silva defeated Yushin Okami in the main event. The ticket demand for that show was up to 250,000 for a 16,000 seat arena.
The secondary market already has All Out tickets on sale for four-times there original worth.
