After months of speculation about whether a self-financed, ten-thousand-seat event put on by The Young Bucks and Cody could sell out, we finally have our answer … it’s yes.
Tickets went on-sale this afternoon and sources tell us it only took around thirty-minutes for All In at the Sears Centre Arena in Chicago, Illinois — which has a capacity of 11,800 people — to be considered a sell out. No word on the exact number of tickets sold as of yet.
As you may you recall, this comes about a year to the date after Cody Rhodes claimed he’d “take that bet” when Dave Meltzer tweeted saying Ring Of Honor wouldn’t be able to sell out a ten thousand seat plus arena “any time soon.”
As we first reported back in November of last year, Cody and the Young Bucks had started to put together the plans for the event and shortly after a date/venue were announced. Since then they’ve put together an incredible line-up of talent for the event including Kazuchika Okada, Deonna Purrazzo, Pentagon Jr, Rey Fenix, Tessa Blanchard, Stephen Amell and just announced earlier today – Rey Mysterio.
A giant congratulations to Cody, The Young Bucks, and the rest of the All In team for pulling off such a incredible feat.
