AEW achieved significant success with its Revolution pay-per-view event held this past Sunday at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The focal point of the event was the legendary wrestler, The Icon Sting, who competed in what was billed as his final-ever matchup in the main event alongside Darby Allin. The duo emerged victorious against the Young Bucks, retaining the AEW tag team titles.

According to reports from Venues Now, the event drew an impressive attendance of 16,118 fans and generated a gate of over $1 million, with an average ticket price of $55. The publication further details:

OVG Hospitality’s food and beverage per capita spending averaged at $19, excluding suites, resulting in $306,242 in concessions revenue.


In terms of merchandise sales, overseen by Oui Vend, the average expenditure per attendee was $21.64, largely driven by the anticipation surrounding Sting’s final match, resulting in approximately $349,000 in gross sales. Nearly all merchandise items sold out, indicating exceptional demand. These figures place the event’s commercial performance at the higher end for family-oriented shows and more in line with the revenue generated by concerts.

Scott Johnson, the deputy director of the Greensboro Coliseum, supplied these statistics to Venues Now, showcasing the event’s substantial economic impact.
