All Elite Wrestling (AEW) continues to make a strong push into what has always been the heart of WWE, announcing a second event near the city on Dec. 8 at the soon-to-be-opening UBS Arena on the Nassau County/Queens border at Belmont Park.
“AEW: Dynamite” and “AEW: Rampage” will be filmed at the future home of the NHL’s New York Islanders as the wrestling organization continues making massive moves within the sport’s landscape. AEW announced earlier this summer that they would make their first-ever appearance in New York on Sept. 22 at Arthur Ashe Stadium — the famous home of the US Open tennis tournament.
Over the last month, AEW has brought in former WWE stars in CM Punk — who had been inactive for the last seven years — up-and-coming star Adam Cole, formerly of NXT, and a former WWE champion in Daniel Bryan. Both Cole and Bryan made their debuts last week.
They will be featured amongst a loaded list of wrestlers at UBS Arena that also includes Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Jon Moxley, Sting, Dr. Britt Baker, and Plainview, NY native Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF).
Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Sept. 10, at 10 am ET via AEWTix.com and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets start at $30 plus fees.
