He also spoke about the issues regarding ticket sales with past AEW events (All In and Double Or Nothing). Acknowledging the past problems, he wanted to reassure fans that things are different now. The company wants to make sure that the fans have all the information needed ahead of the ticket release.
“Ladies and gentlemen, August 31. Chicago. Sears Centre. The building where it all began. AEW presents All Out, and tickets are about to go on sale. Now, I’ll be the first to admit, with ticketing on-sales, press conferences, and ticketing times, in the past mistakes have been made”.
“This time it’s different. I want you to be prepared, I want you to have all the information for starters. Fan friendly price points, just like with Double Or Nothing the most expensive seat in the house is $190, the cheapest is $30. But that is not the most important thing. The #1 thing you need to know is when these tickets go on sale and they go on sale this Friday, June 14 at Noon Eastern. That’s 11 Central, that’s 9 Pacific. June 14, Noon Eastern.”
Cody then posted onto his Twitter the seating chart for the Sears Center, the location of All Out:

All Out has only the one match announced so far. That match is Chris Jericho vs “Hangman” Adam Page for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship.
Blake’s Take: This, in my eyes, is the NUMBER ONE reason why All Elite Wrestling is different from WWE and the major companies. They are including the fans. Things like this, admitting past mistakes and rectifying them? You wouldn’t see the WWE issuing a statement, let alone post a video as AEW have. Before the haters start, I still love WWE but the company has become stale and forgotten about their loyal fan base. All Elite Wrestling will give the WWE juggernaut a welcome kick up the ass, and hopefully, it can correct it’s course. As for the event itself? All In sold out in minutes with no matches announced. Imagine the rush for All Out after the two events they’ve run so far…
