AEW’s Revolution PPV is likely to break AEW’s PPV record by bringing in 125,000 buys worldwide. It is the best PPV buys for any non-WWE wrestling event in the United States since 1999.
The show saw AEW World Champion Kenny Omega face Jon Moxley in an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch in the main event with Kenny Omega’s AEW World Title on the line and a huge “Hall of Fame-worthy talent” signing, revealed to be Christian Cage.
The previous high for number of AEW PPV buys was last year’s Double or Nothing, which did 120,000 buys.
The PPV gross is in excess of $6 million and is likely to be closer to $7 million, with AEW receiving approximately 50 percent of that, after the distributors all receive their cuts.
Below is a list of the estimated buys that AEW has generated so far:
* All-In (pre-AEW) (9/1/2018): 45,000
* Double or Nothing (5/25/2019): 98,000
* All Out (8/31/2019): 88,000
