Jim Ross says AEW is planning on going back on the road as soon as this July.
When AEW Dynamite began on the TNT Network in 2019, All Elite Wrestling had become the first weekly touring wrestling promotion since the closure of WCW in 2001.
Suddenly, all touring plans for all wrestling promotions ceased with the emergence of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
AEW was able to turn Daily's place in Jacksonville, Florida into their home base. Producing the majority of content throughout the pandemic, whether televised, on pay-per-view or not broadcast at all, from the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Now, as the world begins to adjust to life amid the pandemic and vaccinations become more readily available, AEW is looking to go back on the road with Dynamite.
Speaking on his podcast, Grillin’ JR, Jim Ross stated that the promotion is looking to hit the road “pretty aggressively” beginning in July.
“[AEW is] making some changes also. We're adding more content here sooner than later with another show. We're getting our schedule together. Looks like we're going back on the road pretty aggressively, beginning in July. getting back in front of a live audience is a blessing. I can't wait. I 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.”
Recently, WWE held WrestleMania 37 in front of a live audience and touted sellout crowds for both nights of the annual spectacular.
One of the planned events that wound up being put on hold because of the pandemic was Blood & Guts. AEW’s take on War Games will happen one year after it was supposed to. On Wednesday, May 5, 2021, Chris Jericho will lead the Inner Circle against Maxwell Jacob Friedman and The Pinnacle. Learn more here.
