The next stomping grounds. AEW has hit the ground running as one of the biggest things to arrive on the wrestling scene in years. The company has promoted three shows so far with All Out scheduled for later this month. With that out of the way, it is time to move on to the next major stage with live weekly television. Their first show is already scheduled, but what comes after that?
AEW has announced the locations for their second and third television shows, which will take place on October 9 and October 16 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Agganis Arena and in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Liacouras Center respectively. Both venues have hosted Impact Wrestling pay per views in the past. AEW’s first TNT show will take place at the Capital One Center in Washington DC on October 2.
They made the announcement again. Check out the video version, with the core talent speaking in their own way:

Opinion: They’re staying in a certain geographic region at the moment and that might not be the worst thing in the world. Going to the bigger cities makes a lot of sense as there are going to be more people there so a sellout, or at least a big crowd, shouldn’t be that hard to put together. It’s also a smart idea to go to the smaller venues. Not only are they probably cheaper to rent, but there is no reason to risk a half empty larger arena. Start small and work your way up.
