All In II was a major success for AEW by all metrics considered, and that’s good news for a promotion going on their fifth year of existence. But after All In at Wembley Stadium, what’s next for AEW? Well… there’s several key things AEW needs to do next to keep growing in the world of pro wrestling.
Most big promotions have their marquee show; WWE has WrestleMania, NJPW has Wrestle Kingdom, and AAA has TripleMania. But this hasn’t been a thing with AEW so far… AEW has treated all their PPVs equally, but after All In, all things indicate that it will become AEW’s marquee show going forward, and it makes sense. As many now, the original All In was the show that led to the formation of AEW, and the fact they are coming back to Wembley Stadium next year, further confirms its status.

AEW so far has only toured in only three countries (U.S., England and Canada) so far. But AEW should consider more international dates; with Japan and Mexico as the favorites considering the popularity of pro wrestling in those countries. There’s also the fact that AEW has partnerships with NJPW in Japan and AAA in Mexico, making things easier for them in that department. Of those two countries, Japan is the favorite since AEW and NJPW already run the Forbidden Door PPV. It makes sense that one day they’ll run a show like that in Japan down the line.
Another thing AEW needs to do is have a show inside a major U.S. stadium. But that could wait a few years considering the most likely scenario is for AEW to one day have a show in EverBank Field, stadium of the Jacksonville Jaguars which is also owned by The Khan Family. It’s also worth noting that the current plans of renovation of the stadium are yet to be announced. Another interesting venue for AEW to run a show in is the mecca of pro wrestling, Madison Square Garden. But this is something very difficult to achieve considering the venues relationship with WWE. But you never know…
As AEW keeps growing, there’s new objectives for them and all look promising for the promotion’s future. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
