Cody Rhodes has announced in a new video that AEW will be making it's debut in Atlanta on February 19th for an episode of their weekly episodic Dynamite. The show will take place at the State Farm Arena, with tickets set to go on sale this Friday. The American Nightmare spoke about the history of pro-wrestling in the Georgia area ahead of his announcement.
Deep beneath the Georgia red clay, pro wrestling has roots in the South. Think about all the great wrestlers who have come from Georgia. The Armstrongs, Arn Anderson, Ron Simmons, Ray Traylor … it’s quite a list.
Which is why when AEW became official, what I’m about to tell you became inevitable. That we had to come to the state of Georgia. That we had to come to the city of Atlanta. If you’re gonna do it, do it big. Which is why February 19th, AEW will present Dynamite from the State Farm Arena. For those wondering, the State Farm Arena can seat up to 21,000 people.
Atlanta... The wait is OVER!
