Confirming his earlier nod to one of his most successful events returning, AEW head Tony Khan told Wednesday's AEW Dynamite crowd that Grand Slam will indeed return.
After Dynamite and before Rampage, Khan came out to talk to the Long Island, New York, crowd at the UBS Arena and said AEW would "see them in a few months for AEW Grand Slam."
Earlier in the day, Khan said in an interview that he was hopeful the event would return to Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York. In their first-ever stadium show last September, AEW drew over 20,000 and what Khan said was their first-ever $1 million gate.
Khan didn't announce when the second Grand Slam would take place.
During Dynamite, AEW announced both a debut city and a return city that will round out their July schedule.
Dynamite/Rampage will return to Duluth, Georgia, on Wednesday, July 20th at the Gas South Arena for the first time since they debuted there last December.
In their first Massachussets show to not be held in Boston, AEW Dynamite/Rampage will debut at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, on Wednesday, July 27th. The venue can hold up to 15,000 fans which is significantly larger than the Agganis Arena where they have held three shows before.
With the two new dates, AEW now is set through the end of July.
