WWE’s premier show, WrestleMania 40 did staggering business for the global juggernaut as revealed by TKO Board member, The Rock who was a constant fixture on the road to The Show of Shows.

However, their traditional rivals, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) tried to prove their own supremacy after WrestleMania 40’s exceptional business with their newest pay-per-view show, AEW Dynasty.

The show presented some of the most exceptional matches in the history of AEW including the dream showdown between Will Ospreay and Bryan Danielson that saw the Aerial Assasin emerge victorious and the headliner bout witnessing Swerve Strickland overcoming the odds to dethrone Samoa Joe for the AEW World Championship.

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, recent figures for WrestleMania PPV buys were 24,900 viewers for Saturday’s event and 25,700 for Sunday’s show. Interestingly, only a small fraction, 2.5 percent, of those who tuned in for either night also opted to purchase AEW Dynasty, outlining a huge difference.
