AEW All In is just under two months away at the time of writing and has already smashed records and expectations around the world. But which former champion wants to enter the Guinness Book of World Records at Wembley Stadium?
The answer is AEW Tag Team Champion Anthony Bowens, who, along with Max Caster and Billy Gunn, has become one of the most popular stars in All Elite Wrestling as part of The Acclaimed.
In typical wrestling fashion, The Acclaimed managed to organically get over with the audience through a combination of top-quality wrestling, killer promos, and an all-time great catchphrase that might be the most over saying in AEW history, “Scissor Me Daddy A**.”
Anthony Bowens has always encouraged the All Elite Wrestling fan base to “scissor” each other at events as a gesture of kindness. But he wants AEW All In to be the biggest gesture of its kind as he took to Twitter to declare his intention to set a world record by achieving the “biggest group scissor” in history.
“Hey UK, maybe we should set a Guinness Book of Records for largest group scissor?” tweeted Bowens.
According to WrestleTix, AEW All In is just shy of passing the 75,000 tickets sold mark, which would certainly make it the biggest group scissor ever recorded if Bowens succeeded in his mission. But could that number increase before August 27th? Only time will tell!
What other records has AEW All In already broken?
It seemed insane not too long ago to even think that any wrestling promotion, other than WWE, could sell upwards of 70,000 tickets for an event. In fact, it seemed far-fetched to think that any company could sell even half that amount, but AEW All In has smashed all expectations.
The show is already the second-highest-paid wrestling event in history, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, with the revenue for the show surpassing $8.3 Million. The only event that has a higher number than that is WWE WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
Elsewhere, the show is also aiming to be the highest-attended wrestling event in the history of the United Kingdom. AEW All In is currently sitting in second place behind WWE Summerslam 1992, but given that there are still over 12,000 seats available to fill, it’s possible we could see that record broken as well.
