AEW Revolution turned out to be one of the most intriguing pay-per-views in the history of the Tony Khan-led company. Headlined by Sting’s retirement match, the show has massive attractions and turned out to do pretty well for the company. 

In an earlier edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was stated that the pay-per-view might end up getting the third-most PPV buys in the history of the company. As of that date, the show had already surpassed the streaming buys of AEW Worlds End by 25% with an expected range of 170,000-176,000 buys. 

However, in the latest edition of the Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has stated that the PPV buys might not end up as expected by millions. The show is not expected to get around 165,000 to 167,000 buys, ending up fourth largest in the history of AEW. 

“An update on the Revolution PPV buys. The week two increase was not nearly that of Worlds End, and at press time based on a similar number of days after the show, it is up 19.3 percent in television buys. Digital buys also didn’t increase in week two as much as they did for other recent shows and also ended up roughly the same from Worlds End as television buys. It is notable that Worlds End, which hardly got the kind of reaction Revolution did, did so much better in comparison with late buys. At this point I’d go with an estimate at this point of closer to 165,000 to 167,000, which we’ll adjust again next week when updated figures come in. So it is now looking to be the fourth largest in company history rather than possibly hitting the No. 3 mark unless this week buys come in big.”


As of today, AEW All Out 2021 leads the list of largest number of PPV buys followed by AEW All In (2023) and AEW Revolution (2022). It would be interesting to see if this year’s Revolution could knock off the 2022 edition with more buys. Ringside News will keep you updated with the latest numbers. 

Do you think AEW Revolution 2024 would pick up the pace to become the third-largest PPV buy in history? Drop your thoughts down in the comment section below.
