AEW Revolution had many special attractions to entice fans to drop $50 on the event. It apparently paid off.

Wrestlenomics reports that AEW sold 125,000 pay-per-view buys. That includes traditional pay-per-view and streaming. This brought in $5 million for the company.

125,000 buys puts Revolution as the highest-selling pay-per-view in AEW’s short history. The previous #1 spot went to 2020’s Double Or Nothing which brought in 105,000 buys.

The exploding barbed wire deathmatch capped off the night, but Sting’s debut in AEW action and the company’s mystery signing certainly sweetened the deal for many fans. It was obviously enough of a trick to work in the face of stiff competition from the NBA All-Star game.
