AEW hosted their All Out pay-per-view event at the United Center in Chicago, IL, which was a considerable challenge as it marked the company’s second pay-per-view offering in a week. All In London went down the week prior, and turn turnout was quite good for that show, and now we have the numbers for All Out.
The AEW All Out event’s main event saw Jon Moxley’s victory in the International Title match against Orange Cassidy. Additionally, Bryan Danielson defeated Ricky Starks in a brutal strap match, while MJF and Adam Cole retained the ROH Tag Team Titles against the Dark Order.
Following the event, during a media session, AEW President Tony Khan mentioned that the show was expected to have garnered over 100,000 buys, while AEW All In was close to reaching 200,000 buys.
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that All Out had lower viewership compared to All In, which was anticipated due to its proximity to the previous event and a somewhat less compelling card than what AEW fans are accustomed to.
Television buys accounted for only 38% of All In’s numbers, suggesting an estimated 73,000 buys. However, streaming buys represented a higher percentage, potentially reaching up to 96,000. The previous year’s event reportedly garnered 140,000 buys.
It seems that AEW has a lot to be happy about with All Out. Only time will tell if they will be able to pull off the same numbers for All In London and All Out next year, because they already have Wembley Stadium booked for August 25th, 2024 with plans to run All Out the next weekend.
