AEW has a lot of plans for the future, and they are still moving fast toward every goal that Tony Khan has laid out for them. That being said, some previous edicts might go away as things evolve. One of those changes might include the number of pay-per-views the company expects fans to buy.

AEW has done well with four yearly pay-per-view events. Double or Nothing, All Out, Revolution, and Full Gear have been their tent pole events, but they might add even more in the years to come.
During the media conference before Double or Nothing, Tony Khan had a lot to say. During those notes, it was stated that Tony Khan said that there is potential in possibly adding more pay-per-view events to the schedule.
Regarding the potential for more pay-per-view events, Khan noted that there is indeed potential, but it must align with the right economic situation for AEW and also be in the best interest of the fans. He mentioned that the launch of AEW Collision provides an opportunity to explore and consider additional events, as long as it makes sense within their relationship with Warner Bros. Discovery. Khan added that in recent months, their relationship with WBD has been the strongest it has been since the beginning of their partnership.
AEW’s new show, Collision, will add another night of the week for AEW fans’ viewing habits. Only time will tell if Collision will bring in a huge audience at 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM every Saturday night, but Tony Khan certainly seems excited about the possibilities.
AEW Double or Nothing is set to go down in Las Vegas this weekend on May 28th. Only time will tell how many pay-per-view events AEW books in the years to come.
