Since AEW’s inception at All In back in 2019, Chicago has become the hub for everything All Elite. Given the recent successes of CM Punk's return to professional wrestling at the United Center and the spectacle that was All Out, it comes as no surprise AEW will be returning to the Windy City in short order.
Besides the recent success and buzz about AEW, the state of Illinois is essentially the birthplace of the young company. President, Founder, and Co-Owner of AEW, Tony Khan was born in Champaign-Urbana. Khan has been quoted in the past as saying he wants to keep AEW in Chicago on Thanksgiving weekend as an annual event.
With AEW returning for a Thanksgiving week slate of shows, the company is priming itself up for a dominant run into the new year. On the back of The All Elite city that Chicago has become, you know that yours truly will be in attendance! Hope to see you all there!
