JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — There is a possibility that All Elite Wrestling (AEW) could be holding a show in the United Kingdom, according to a source with the promotion.
AEW manager Vickie Guerrero confirmed internal discussions in a recent broadcast of the Captain’s Corner podcast to hold show taping in the U.K. capital of London.
“There is talk of us going to London,” Guerrero said. “We’re going to be in Canada pretty soon, so we’ll be in Toronto. So I think with the world opening up and Tony Khan working on some overseas dates, [I] can’t wait to get back to London.”
Jim Ross stated in July that the company ‘definitely has plans’ to visit the U.K. soon. With the world opening up again from the declining global COVID-19 pandemic, the promotion is announcing more international shows.
These international plans include the abovementioned Toronto stop, which will be October 12-13 from the Coca-Cola Coliseum. The Dynamite and Rampage broadcasts will be taped and will air on tape delay.
Khan, AEW’s president, has previously given hints about hosting AEW events in the U.K. There are plans to host events at Craven Cottage, the home pitch of Fulham Football Club. The club is co-owned by Tony and Shahid Khan.
