All Elite Wrestling recently held their Double Or Nothing PPV Event, which featured CM Punk defeating “Hangman” Adam Page to become the new AEW World Champion, Adam Cole defeating Samoa Joe in the finals of the Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament and Britt Baker defeating Ruby Soho in the finals of the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament.
AEW has reportedly been drawing more than 110,000 PPV buys in their last 4 events, which includes the 2021 Revolution Event, which drew a total of 135,000 buys, the 2021 Double Or Nothing PPV, which drew a total of 140,000 buys, the 2021 All Out Event, which drew a total of 205,000 buys and the 2021 Full Gear PPV, which drew a total of 145,000 buys, meaning that All Elite Wrestling has really had a major success in running their PPVs.
All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan recently spoke with News4Jax on their Double Or Nothing Event and how the PPV Event was able to draw an estimated total of about 150,000-155,000 PPV buys, which is a big increase from the 2021 Double or Nothing PPV, which was able to draw a total of 134,000-140,000 PPV buys, but it has not been confirmed yet what percentage of the PPV buys were from traditional PPV or from streaming, though Dave Meltzer did mention on a recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the 150,000-155,000 PPV buys for AEW’s Double Or Nothing Event were from traditional PPV.
The 150,000-155,000 PPV buys for AEW’s 2022 Double Or Nothing Event would make the show the company’s third best selling PPV in AEW history, only behind the 2021 All Out PPV Event, which was able to draw 205,000 PPV buys and the 2022 Revolution PPV Event, which was able to draw 165,000 – 173,000 buys. In addition to the huge PPV buys, the 2022 AEW Double Or Nothing PPV Event was also able to draw a total of $1.1 million in gate, which is the promotion’s first-ever gate of over $1 million. Due to the huge gate, the 2022 AEW Double Or Nothing PPV Event has now joined the NJPWxROH G1 Supercard Event and the 81st CMLL Aniversario Event as the only non-WWE wrestling events in North America to draw a gate over $1 million.
