AEW presented its second pay-per-view event, Double Or Nothing, of 2021 this past Sunday and it was very successful for the promotion.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the show looks to have significantly beaten the 120,000 buys of last year’s Double Or Nothing PPV event, but fallen short of what Revolution did this past February.
Shortly after the event, it was reported Revolution figures to do between 122,000 and 137,000 buys. The final number of buys for the show has yet to be revealed. Last year’s AEW Revolution pulled in between 100,000 to 105,000 PPV buys.
Meltzer noted that “the best estimate at this point would be 135,000 to 150,000 buys” for this year’s Double Or Nothing. The show had 50,000 Google searches.
Meltzer pointed out that many AEW PPV shows don’t do these types of search numbers, but was still below the 200,000 of this year’s Revolution and of most WWE’s B-type pay-per-view events.
The show drew 5,200 fans in Jacksonville, Florida at Daily’s Place, which was 300 shy of a sellout. 4,700 were paid and as a result, it created a $300,000 gate.
