AEW to make Los Angeles debut at The Forum this June

The venue will host the post-Double or Nothing episode of Dynamite on June 1.

On the Wednesday after this year's Double or Nothing PPV, AEW will make its Los Angeles debut.

It was announced today that the Wednesday, June 1 episode of Dynamite will be held at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Double or Nothing is taking place in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 29.

The Dynamite episode will be the first-ever AEW show to take place in California. It was also announced today that the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California will host the Double or Nothing fallout edition of Rampage on Friday, June 3.

“It’s so important for AEW to arrive in Los Angeles and to bring Dynamite to The Forum, which is an awesome venue,” Tony Khan told Variety. “It’s a long time coming for AEW, which is consistently one of the most watched cable programs in America, to bring our show to LA, which is a top media market and where there are so many great wrestling fans and a great history of pro wrestling.”

Khan also said in his Variety interview that AEW's next step now that they're running a coast-to-coast tour is to reach fans across the world.

“I think it means we’re back in full swing with a national coast to coast tour, finally hitting the fans all across the United States,” Khan said. “The next step is hitting the fans across the world.”

The Forum was the home of the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Kings until both teams moved to the Staples Center in 1999.
