There is an estimated number of pay-per-view buys for AEW’s most recent PPV called All Out.
All Elite Wrestling presented the fifth All Out pay-per-view in company history last Sunday, September 3rd. All Out took place in Chicago just one week after the company’s biggest PPV ever – All In London at Wembley Stadium in front of 81,000+ fans.
All Out was a rare AEW PPV without an AEW World Title and AEW Women’s Title match on the card. Instead, Jon Moxley beat Orange Cassidy for the International Title in the main event.
It was a show that was praised heavily for its match quality with Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer rating two matches at five stars – Bryan Danielson beating Ricky Starks in a Strap Match and Konosuke Takeshita’s huge win over Kenny Omega.
Number of Pay-Per-View Buys For AEW All Out Hurt By Presence of AEW All In
In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote about how All Out’s PPV buys were affected by All In taking place one week earlier, but combined the numbers are strong.
“Television buys for All Out at this point based on numbers we have were only 38 percent of those of All In, which would translate to 73,000. We’re told streaming buys are at a much higher percentage and that the expectation is All Out would do half of All In, which at this point could be as much as 96,000, and perhaps word of mouth on the show would also help those late buys.”
“Tony Khan did use the figure of close to 300,000 for both shows combined. If All Out ends up at 96,000 I’d call it a pretty big success all things considered. At 73,000, I wouldn’t say that. The question for comparisons that we’ll have a better idea of next week is whether this week’s buys for each show are impacted by the fact there are two shows with great word-of-mouth on the market at the same time.”
“And while All Out may have had better buzz for quality of wrestling matches, particularly on top, All In is the more historical show.”
Next up for AEW on the pay-per-view schedule is the first ever WrestleDream PPV on October 1st.
