As noted earlier at this link, there was a lot of talk about the weak crowd at last night’s AEW Dynamite show from the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas.
AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes responded to a tweet on the attendance today and claimed that they were at “80% utilization” with more than 4,500 fans in attendance, and “well above market.”
“We had over 4500 folks at 80% utilization. Well above market. Vibrant crowd throughout. We will definitely be back,” Cody wrote.
For clarification, the Curtis Culwell Center has a capacity of 6,860 seats, 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
