Major changes look to be in store for AEW.

Since its inception, AEW has produced pay-per-view events on a limited basis, but back in July, it was reported that WBD wanted the company to expand its offerings, potentially holding as many as one PPV a month. During the summer, WBD was negotiation with All Elite Wrestling about a new deal, one that could lead to a huge money increase for the company.

With the advent of Forbidden Door, All In, and WrestleDream, the company has already added more programming to its schedule, and according to a new report from Andrew Zarian, more shows appear to be on the way with the company likely to adopt a 12 PPV per year model.

In addition, Zarian feels confident that All Elite Wrestling programming will be making it to the WBD-owned streaming service Max in 2024. While All Elite Wrestling has been in existence for nearly four years, past episodes of its programming are not currently available to watch on any streaming service, and a move to Max would allow fans to watch archived content in a similar manner to the WWE Network and Peacock.

Zarian’s report read as follows:

“I feel confident to say that AEW will be on Max in 2024 and AEW will expand its PPV Schedule to 12 a year.”

When Is AEW’s Next PPV?

With All In and All Out in the rearview mirror, fans are looking ahead to WrestleDream, a new PPV announced by Tony Khan at the post-All Out press conference. The show is set to honor Antonio Inoki and will feature crossover talent from NJPW, though some of New Japan’s top stars may not be available for the event, which will emanate from Seattle, WA on October 1st.

One match that is confirmed for WrestleDream is a singles bout between Bryan Danielson and Zack Sabre Jr.
