Even with a show that had no fans in attendance, it seems AEW found some success with its latest big show. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter brings word that this past Saturday’s Double or Nothing could end up becoming the most-purchased PPV in AEW history.

Streaming numbers are up 10% from Revolution in February and could end up closer to 15%. The final number of cable buys have yet to come in, but if it has a similar increase, this would put the PPV at 115,000-120,000 buys. Last year’s event had between 100,000 and 110,000 buys. If the cable buys don’t have a similar increase, however, it could end up lower than last year’s event. Even if this happens, it will still be the second-biggest PPV number in company history.

Replay buys are said to be a little ahead of Revolution. As for Google searches, it had 100,000, which was half of WWE’s recent Money in the Bank event. It was at the #10 spot for the day, similar to Revolution.

Either way, AEW PPVs have all been within a similar range, so they aren’t losing fans. Tony Khan seems to be happy with how AEW is doing, as he recently thanked fans for the past year of success.
