AEW Revolution Drew More PPV Buys Than What Was Estimated

All Elite Wrestling recently held their Revolution PPV, which was their first major PPV Event of 2022 and it featured AEW World Champion “Hangman” Adam Page putting his AEW World Championship on the line against Adam Page in the main event, CM Punk battling MJF in a Dog Collar Match and AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. defending her title against Thunder Rosa. AEW’s Revolution PPV Event is reportedly one of the most successful PPV Events in company history, with the early estimates from FITE TV and Bleacher Report showing that the PPV Event did between 146,000-170,000 buys, but it seems that AEW Revolution did more than that.

Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that AEW Revolution is seem to now be doing between 165,000-170,000 PPV buys, which is around 14% higher than the numbers of the early estimate and that has now translated into Revolution becoming the second biggest PPV in the history of AEW or possibly even the third biggest PPV in history, but it will surely beat last year’s event. The 2022 Revolution PPV is only behind the 2021 All Out PPV, which drew over 200,000 buys.

This is what Dave Meltzer said:

“Real big late buys, so the number that we talked about last week, it’s probably very low compared to what the real number’s going to be. What I have seen of the systems that I have actual numbers for is that it’s up 14% from the last time I talked about it, which is pretty big up. That’s as of the weekend. They also plugged it on both Wednesday and Friday’s show. They plugged the replay. So, easily #2 now. Before there was like, ‘It’s probably number two, but not necessarily.’ Number two and probably minimum I would say 165ish, probably 165 – 170, in that range.”

Wrestlenomics reports that All Elite Wrestling has drew more than 110,000 buys in their last 4 Events and that includes the 2021 Revolution Event, which drew 135,000 buys, the 2021 Double Or Nothing PPV, which drew 115,000 buys, the 2021 All Out PPV, which drew 205,000 buys, and the 2021 Full Gear Event, which drew 145,000 buys, meaning that the company has really been successful in running their PPVs.
