With AEW coming off its latest pay-per-view event, Double Or Nothing, the promotion will be looking forward to not just the historic Forbidden Door PPV next month, but also future events including their return to Arthur Ashe stadium.
AEW held its first stadium show last September with the Grand Slam special edition of Dynamite in New York City at the USTA Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Earlier this month, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that AEW Grand Slam will be returning to Arthur Ashe Stadium later this year, but didn’t provide a date.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio the plan is to hold the show in mid-September.
“Grand Slam, which he [Khan] has talked about, they’re going to do it. He wants Grand Slam to be an annual tradition as the biggest TV of the year. He did not say this, but we in fact know, it will be mid-September on a Wednesday night in Arthur Ashe stadium, they’ve got it booked."
