The wrestling world is buzzing with anticipation for the upcoming AEW WrestleDream pay-per-view event. However, recent reports suggest that this excitement might not translate into a packed arena.

The event, scheduled for Sunday, October 1 in Seattle, WA, is currently facing challenges in ticket sales.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a mere 5,005 tickets have found buyers so far. This number is alarmingly low, especially when considering the scale and significance of the event.

It’s worth noting that this is the lowest pay-per-view audience since the pandemic began, raising concerns about the event’s overall success.

Several factors might contribute to the sluggish ticket sales. The lingering effects of the pandemic could still be influencing fans’ decisions to attend live events.

Additionally, competition from other wrestling promotions and a saturated market might also play a role. It’s essential for AEW to address these challenges head-on and find ways to boost ticket sales in the coming days.
