AEW’s 2023 Revenue Expected To Be Higher Than 2022
AEW is looking to financially improve on last year
AEW has certainly had an up and down year, with viewership figures for Collision plummeting after CM Punk’s firing, the success of Wembley Stadium’s AEW All In, and notable emptiness in arenas for weekly shows, all included in the positives and negatives from a business standpoint.
However, it looks as though 2023 will have been a financial success for the company, increasing on the revenue they made in 2022 by a decent amount. In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has revealed that AEW is likely to gross $170 million to $175 million in revenue, depending on the success of the PPVs in the latter part of the year such as All Out, WrestleDream, Full Gear, and Worlds End.
With a new television show in Collision, of which AEW gets a cut of ad revenue, in addition to an increased PPV schedule and their first stadium show in AEW All In, it has been a year of growth in several aspects for Tony Khan’s company.
