AEW Revolution Reportedly Sets Company Record With 125K Buys


Last Sunday’s Revolution is likely to break AEW’s PPV record by bringing in 125,000 buys worldwide, according to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics. This includes both traditional and digital platforms (B/R Live, FITE, and traditional PPV).

The previous PPV record was at 105,000 from last year’s Double or Nothing. Below is a list of the estimated buys that AEW has generated so far, courtesy of WrestleNomics:

  • All-In (pre-AEW) (9/1/2018): 45,000
  • Double or Nothing (5/25/2019): 98,000
  • All Out (8/31/2019): 88,000
  • Full Gear (11/9/2019): 80,000
  • Revolution (2/29/2020): 90,000
  • Double or Nothing (5/30/2020): 105,000
  • All Out (9/5/2020): 90,000
  • Full Gear (11/7/2020): 85,000
  • Revolution (3/7/2021): 125,000

As noted, Revolution was initially reported to gross over $6 million, but the Wrestlenomics report includes a full breakdown (PPV buys, ticket and merchandise sales) that has AEW grossing just over $5 million.

The company is expected to net around $2.4 million after splitting revenues with its domestic and international broadcast partners. Production of the show was estimated at under $1 million, allowing the company to make a profit.

Headlining the event, AEW World Champion Kenny Omega defeated Jon Moxley in a Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch.

AEW announced its next PPV, Double or Nothing, is on Sunday, May 30 at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida.
