Khan sat down for an interview on 8/27/23 in London. During the post-media scrum, he started boasting about the All In ticket sales. While doing that, he inadvertently compared AEW’s recent London-based event to WWE’s biggest premium live event of the year, WrestleMania.

He said, “For a long time, the only spectacle for many years was WrestleMania. Now there’s AEW, it [All In] sold more tickets than any WrestleMania ever.” WrestleMania 32 in AT&T Stadium in 2016 had a paid attendance of a bit over 80k fans. This year, All In surpassed the record and sold more tickets in London.

By this statement, Khan may have implied that ALL In is the biggest pro wrestling show of all time. This bold claim from the AEW President led to chaos in social media.

Khan received severe backlash on Twitter for his boastful remark

Fans lambasted Khan over his comments. WrestleMania is not only WWE’s biggest event but also the grandest wrestling event in the world. Therefore, some WWE fans are quite upset with the AEW President and vented out their frustration on Twitter.

The WWE fans challenge Khan to draw the same results in America as they did in London.

Some pro-wrestling fans claim that people don’t care about All In’s attendance. What they do care is about the CM Punk and Jack Perry’s fight, which took place backstage in Wembley at All In.

For those unaware, the two stars got into a heated confrontation backstage. As per the reports, it took place right after Perry’s match against Hook and before Punk’s match against Samoa Joe. This has led to AEW suspending both the stars.

WWE Universe refutes Khan’s bold claims.
