The current PPV buy estimates for AEW Revolution on March 5 2023 have been revealed in a recent report on the numbers.
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required), Dave Meltzer states:
“The hope was that the strong word of mouth would cause late buys to end up at least close to about 137,000 of Full Gear, but right now I’d go with a 120,000 to 129,000 number that will probably grow to just under or a little over 130,000 with late buys.
“Given 130,000 was my expectation if things stayed even in interest from the last show due to expecting a 7,000 buy drop due to an $80 Jon Jones fight the night before, and ultimately, the number falls into the category of what I’d say was okay.
“Did MJF as a heel champion prove to be a major draw? No. Did he prove to hurt the PPV numbers? No as well.”
The 2022 edition of AEW Revolution was the second most successful PPV in the company’s history with an estimated buy rate of up to 170,000, according to Dave Meltzer at the time.
Meltzer also revealed that WWE Elimination Chamber had a greater number of Google searches than AEW Revolution.
The March 3 2023 AEW Rampage before AEW Revolution saw a drop in viewership with an audience of 394,000 viewers compared to the February 24 edition that drew 409,000 viewers.
