During Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite, the promotion revealed its next pay-per-view will take place on Saturday, February 29th.
The event will be called ‘Revolution’ and will take place from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois. The arena is located approximately 45 minutes from the Sears Centre and has been a strong market for the promotion in its infancy.
In the press release, AEW stated that the event will be tied in with C2E2 (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo).
As of now, there is no major competition that night from WWE or UFC. The UFC will run a pay-per-view on February 8th headlined by Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes while WWE runs TakeOver from Portland on February 16th.
Conrad Thompson was asked on Twitter about a Starrcast convention running in Chicago during the weekend of the AEW pay-per-view and Thompson responded, ‘No’.
Tickets for AEW Revolution go on sale Friday, December 20th.
