All In Sells Out In Less than 30 Minutes

Tickets for the Young Bucks & Cody's All In show on September 1st at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, sold out immediately.

With all seats open the crowd would legitimately just top 10,000, which would be the first time in United States history where something like that happened for a true independent promotion show, and the first time in 19 years anyone but WWE sold that many tickets to a show in the U.S. I believe Jacques Rougeau has done that a few times for shows in Montreal with his own promotion.

We had checked 45 minutes after tickets were put on sale to see what was available and nothing was. One of the organizers said it looked like it sold out in 30 minutes.

This is also with a lot of problems as we've been inundated with complaints from people who tried to order tickets right away and had all kinds of problems because of the volume of orders in such a short period of time, similar to what happened with the New Japan show in Long Beach.

The sellout was with almost nothing announced on the show but several major names, the biggest being The Young Bucks and Cody, who organized and financed the show, along with Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada, and Rey Mysterio Jr.

Cody will challenge for the NWA World Heavyweight title in one of the key matches on the card. Billy Corgan was at the press conference today noting the title would be at sake and Cody said he would challenge. At this point that would be Nick Aldis as champion.

... Nick Aldis. The one guy I'd love to see WWE pick up and go with.... but I know they'll ruin him once he's past NXT.

Cody's saying there's no plans to stream the event... seems silly given the demand.

Did the Hardy's stream their Omega show a few years back? That's the only thing I can think to compare this to...

They have a bunch of wrestlers that can't appear legally on streams because of contracts. Penta and Fenix off the top of my head, so they're probably avoiding legal problems as of now

One rumor going around is that they're trying to get actual PPV for this rather than rely on iPPV.

From 411 Mania:
Cody Rhodes recently spoke with Mike on Monday, and spoke about challenging for the NWA title at All In and more. Here are the highlights…

On bringing a sense of unity to Independent wrestling: “Somebody told me “you’ve stumbled upon the wrestling’s ‘Woodstock’. As much as I’d like to say that and cut that promo, I won’t know that until that Thursday, All In weekend…(sic)… This has the feeling. I think we all need it… wrestlers, fans, whether there’s a bunch of All In’s or just one, we’re going to make it count.”

On challenging for the NWA Championship:“Billy (Corgan) wanted the NWA Championship represented on All In and I said “absolutely, and I’ll be the one to challenge for it.” We also talk a little in storyline about Nick Aldis and his refusal to want to do the match without being asked.

On whether or not there will be a live stream or broadcast of All In: After a long pause and a bit of a smirk, “I don’t know. I can’t say. (Still grinning). I don’t know, but I am gonna do my damndest to give people who couldn’t get tickets an opportunity to see it”.
It seems they'll be doing ~something~. It's just crazy to think they'd sell 10,000 tickets in a half an hour and not have anything for people that didn't make it in that window. I mean, that's what televised sports - especially wrestling - were founded on. The NFL still blacks out games for 3 different franchises where I'm at if attendance is down...

Granted, this isn't the NFL, but still... seems like a lot of money left on the table... rumor has it that Aldis is taking 30% of the gate, so you'd think they'd want every penny they could milk out of this.

if that is indeed true, you can bet your house that Cody is taking the title and that they payoff is for Aldis to drop the title. I would also imagine than 30% would go between Aldis and Corgan

THIRTY PERCENT? The champ didn't even used to get half of that, and that was back when this belt was actually important!
