AEW Double Or Nothing was a big night in the history of pro wrestling, but how many people tuned in to see the show?
Some early rumors said that Double Or Nothing did around 200,000 buys on pay-per-view, as we previously reported that isn’t the case. Anyone who was under that assumption confused their Google searches which was around 220,000 and landed them in the #2 searched spot of the night on May 25th.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that currently the AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view did “roughly 98,000 buys between television and digital PPV, with close to a 50/50 split between the two.”
It is expected to break the 100,000 mark with replay buys as they continue to come in. The numbers break down to show that although a majority of the AEW audience is American they still have quite a bit of interest in the international market which is only expected to grow as their television show beings later this year.
About two-thirds came from the U.S., with the U.K., which aired the pregame show on ITV 4, being the strong second followed by Australia, Germany and Canada.
AEW Double Or Nothing didn’t “quite double what ALL IN did,” but it is important to remember that Double Or Nothing cost a significant amount more. ALL IN was $30 while Double Or Nothing was $50 so if you consider that then AEW is off to a great start.
They still pulled in enough pay-per-view buys that it will lock them in as the biggest non-WWE or WCW professional wrestling pay-per-view in history.
