AEW is still going, as strong as they can, but it seems the honeymoon period with fans is over. The last year saw a lot of changes in AEW, and it seems that one of those big changes is a massive decrease in fan interest. The proof is seen in AEW Dynamite and Rampage’s ratings, as they were only able to squeak in just over 850k for the post-pay-per-view Dynamite, but AEW Revolution didn’t give them much hope that things are improving.

WWE Elimination Chamber was one of the most successful Premium Live Events in recent memory. In fact, it even ended up breaking several records that surprised fans in a big way. Now it seems a shocking comparison was made between the Elimination Chamber event and AEW Revolution.

The AEW Revolution pay-per-view went down last Sunday, and it was truly a night of memorable moments and amazing matches. The show was headlined by MJF defending his AEW World Championship against Bryan Danielson in a 60-minute Iron Man Match.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a comparison was made between the level of interest for the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event and AEW Revolution.


It was noted that AEW Revolution generated 50,000 searches and ranked as the 12th most searched topic of the day in the United States. However, this figure is significantly lower than the 500,000 searches that WWE received for their Elimination Chamber event.

Despite this, AEW has often outperformed WWE in terms of Google searches for their pay-per-view events since 2021. In fact, AEW’s 2021 All Out event even surpassed WWE’s SummerSlam in terms of search traffic. Things have certainly changed for them since those days.

This show (Revolution) did 50,000 searches and was No. 12 for the day in the U.S. That compares to 500,000 that WWE did for Elimination Chamber, and AEW had frequently since 2021 beaten WWE in Google searches for PPVs in the same few-week period, even to the point that the 2021 All Out beat WWE’s SummerSlam.”

Previous reports indicated that the February 18th WWE Elimination event had record-breaking attendance and viewership numbers for the company. On the other hand, AEW Revolution in 2022 was the second most successful pay-per-view event in the history of the company. We’ll have to wait and see how AEW Double Or Nothing will fare in May.
