Tony Khan expects AEW to run Arthur Ashe Stadium again in 2022

The AEW president said he's hopeful to return to the venue this year.

Tony Khan says he expects to run AEW Grand Slam Dynamite & Rampage from Arthur Ashe Stadium again in 2022. 

While speaking with News 12, the AEW president touted the success of the first Grand Slam event in 2021 and his belief that a second show there will take place later this year. 

"I expect we'll be back to have AEW Grand Slam Dynamite and Rampage back in Queen's at Arthur Ashe Stadium again. It was a huge success for everyone involved and it's all thanks to this great partnership with the USTA. They were so kind and I think it resulted in a big partnership."

The first AEW Grand Slam event took place on September 22, 2021. Over 20,000 fans were in attendance for the show. 

"It was almost the first million dollar gate in AEW history, just came shy of that but it was real close."

"We will be back and it will be another hopefully huge success going back to Queen's for AEW Grand Slam Dynamite and Rampage later this year in 2022 again."
