News on possible dates for next AEW pay-per-view

AEW (All Elite Wrestling) has yet to officially announce when and where their next pay-per-view event will take place. 

What is known is that the promotion plans to hold four PPV events each year with one show in each quarter of the year. Earlier this week, AEW announced that they have signed with in Demand to do at least one television PPV per quarter, which would back up what AEW President Tony Khan has stated. 

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the idea is to hold the next PPV in February and “because they go on Saturdays and not Sundays, the competition becomes more of an issue.”

AEW doesn’t want to hold shows on Sunday nights which is why they have held their pay-per-view events on Saturdays. The Full Gear PPV went up against the Logan Paul vs. KSI fight that was their biggest competition. 

Thus, with plans to hold the show in February, Meltzer brought up the other events taking place that month both boxing and UFC. Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury is scheduled for 2/22 while Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes is on 2/8. There is a UFC show on 2/15 headlined by Jan Blachowicz vs. Corey Anderson. 

Thus, it leaves 2/1 and 2/29. Which of those dates that AEW picks is purely speculation at this time. 

Here is the press release that was sent out earlier this week:
