This past Sunday night, AEW held their Double or Nothing PPV Event and it featured AEW World Champion Kenny Omega defending his AEW World Title against PAC and Orange Cassidy in a Three-Way Match as well as the Stadium Stampede Main Event Matchup between the Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz) and the Pinnacle (MJF, FTR, Wardlow and Shawn Spears).
The Double or Nothing PPV this past Sunday reportedly broke AEW’s PPV record by bringing in a 125,000 early estimated PPV buy numbers, which includes both the traditional and digital platforms (B/R Live, FITE and traditional PPV). Dave Meltzer mentioned on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the early PPV numbers of last Sunday’s Double or Nothing PPV Event shows that it will be the promotion’s second biggest PPV Event behind this past March’s Revolution and that the event looks to have significantly beaten the 120,000 PPV buys last year’s Double Or Nothing Event did.
It was previously reported that depending on the number of television PPV buys and the late PPV buys, but AEW’s Revolution PPV will be able to do between 122,000 and 137,000 PPV buys, though the official and final PPV buy numbers has yet to be revealed and it will take some time for those PPV buy numbers to be revealed.
According to Dave Meltzer, the best estimated PPV buy numbers for Sunday’s Double or Nothing Event at this point would be between 135,000 and 150,000 PPV buys. It was also revealed that Double or Nothing had at least 50,000 Google searches, which Meltzer pointed out most AEW PPVs don’t do these days, but Double or Nothing was still below the 200,000 Google searches this past March’s Revolution did and it did similar to most of WWE’s B-type PPV Events.
The promotion reportedly had a total of 5,200 fans in attendance inside Daily’s Place in Jacksonville but that was 300 shy of a sellout as the venue can hold up to 5,500 fans, and out of the 5,200 people in attendance, 4,700 of them were paid fans, which as a result, brought a total gate of $300,000.
