AEW is currently aiming at resuming its touring schedule in July according to Jim Ross.
The announcer spoke about the matter during his Grilling JR podcast where he had the following to say.
“We’re getting our schedule together. Looks like we’re going back on the road pretty aggressively, beginning in July.”
AEW, like the rest of the wrestling world, was forced to cease touring early last year due to the Coivid-19 pandemic. The promotion was lucky enough to continue operations as they were able to produce Dynamite and PPV shows in Jacksonville, Florida from Daily’s Place. With the exception being a string of pre-recorded episodes of Dynamite that were filmed in Georgia.
JR then continued by saying “Getting back in front of a live audience is a blessing. I can’t wait. It will help everybody’s work. You can’t help but feed off of the adrenaline of the people and the audience surrounding you. Should be cool.”
AEW began the pandemic era using fellow wrestlers and staff as planted fans to create a sense of atmosphere, something that was sorely lacking in pro wrestling during this time. The promotion has since allowed limited fan attendances at shows since late 2020 and a resume to touring appeared to be the next logical step, especially when considering how WWE’s Wrestlemania 37 attracted nearly 40,000 fans over the two night event.
