JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — All Elite Wrestling (AEW) management made an announcement Friday regarding some live events that were upcoming. The announcement reveals that several upcoming events will be under rescheduling for 2021.
Dynamite live shows in Rochester, St. Louis and Houston will be in June 2021
Dynamite will be awaiting their official regional debut in Rochester, N.Y. on June 16, 2021. This is the third rescheduling for the Blue Cross Arena. The original March 18 date was supposed to be the AEW special AEW Blood and Guts and mark the debut for Dark Order leader Brodie Lee. Prior reschedule dates were July 8 and November 11.
Fans who were anticipating the Chaifetz Arena show in St. Louis on October 7 will have to wait another eight months. AEW officials are rescheduling the show to June 23, 2021. Originally on the schedule for April 8 was rescheduled earlier this year to the October date.
The decision is likely due to a fall sports ban enactment by St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page. Despite calls for the ban to be repealed, holding the event would have been counterproductive by having to relocate to a venue out of the county but within the same region.
To cap off June 2021, AEW is going to make another attempt at the Fertitta Center on the campus of the University of Houston. Previously set for April 29, the show will now attempt to go live on June 30, 2021.
Dynamite will try for UW-Milwaukee in July 2021
Dynamite was on the schedule previously for April 1, but it appears fans will have to wait until mid-July 2021 to get their AEW pro wrestling fix.
The combined effects of the pandemic and civil unrest in Milwaukee is a contributor to delay the show much further. The show was delayed until October 28. However, with the pandemic still ongoing and the continued unrest, the company is pushing the show to July 14, 2021.
What happens to my AEW show ticket now?
Don’t fret, because you should still be able to attend the show on their new dates. More often than not, you should be able to use your original tickets for admission.
However, fans can also receive a refund for their tickets through their point of purchase, e.g. TicketMaster, box office, etc.
The Rochester, St. Louis and Houston shows can arrange their refund process with whichever platform they purchased their ticket.
There is a slightly different process for the Milwaukee show and only applies if you did purchase your tickets through the Panther Arena box office. The box office requests that you either email or call them at (414) 908- 6035 during business hours to receive refund request information. Their operational hours are weekdays from 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central time. All other ticket refund arrangements can be set up through their point of purchase.
AEW states that the safety and well-being of their fans and talent is always a top priority. They send their heartfelt thanks around the world to healthcare and other frontline workers who are answering the call to protect and serve their communities.
The company is currently allowing fans to their Jacksonville live shows and pay-per-view events at Daily’s Place with a 15 percent cap.
