All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes took to Twitter to respond to recent messages from fans regarding the low attendance for this past Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite on TNT.
Cody noted that AEW at the Curtis Cullwell Center “had over 4,500 folks at 80% utilization” and “well above market.” Cody also went on to say that the crowd was vibrant and that AEW will definitely be back.
Cody’s Twitter post responding to the low attendance has since been removed with no reason given.
Garland is 14 miles southwest of Dallas and is a part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex.
The Curtis Cullwell Center has a maximum capacity of 6,800 for seating depending on the type of event.

This is EMBARRASSING! The AEW brass cannot be happy about this. And we’re in the honeymoon stage. AEW fanboys, start worrying. 15 minutes are just about up. @TonyKhan @CodyRhodes @The_MJF https://t.co/FllBTR47sc

Chicago is the only place AEW draws that’s why. Haven’t had a sellout since oct 9th. Thank the scalpers first the early sales. After they couldn’t push the tickets they stopped buying. Next week tickets are selling horribly and tonight’s attendance is empty too pic.twitter.com/YZSRQr677P
