In the next five weeks, AEW and WWE will both be running televised shows from Long Island’s new UBS Arena.

According to reports from sources like WrestleTix, the Dec. 8 Dynamite & Rampage has been outselling the Nov. 29 Raw from the start. There latest updates for each have the AEW show with 76% of an estimated 10,449 available tickets distributed, while the WWE date has distributed 58% of 7,280.

Vince McMahon’s company has made several moves to put more butts in seats for Raw, including a buy one, get one free ticket deal that ran last week and expired on Monday. Ticketmaster is currently running a “Me+3” promotion where orders of four $15+ dollar tickets qualifies for a discount. And WWE is bringing in some SmackDown stars for an upgraded main event.

The top billed (likely dark) match was Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles & Omos vs. Damian Priest & RK-Bro. Now it’s Roman Reigns & The Usos vs. Drew McIntyre & The New Day.

Will this help pack the new building on Mon., Nov. 29? Will anyone but diehards who’ve picked a side in the WWE vs. AEW “war” notice if it’s not?
