AEW WrestleDream Generated Live Gate Of $533,717
AEW WrestleDream made over half a million dollars in live gate
AEW hosted its very first WrestleDream PPV event earlier this month, and it was a noteworthy show which saw matches such as Christian Cage vs. Darby Allin for the TNT Championship, Adam Page vs. Swerve Strickland, a dream match between Bryan Danielson vs. Zack Sabre Jr, not to mention the goosebump-inducing debut of the “Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland.
Wrestlenomics have revealed that per pollstar, some data has emerged regarding money made from the show, making it a decent success not just inside the ring but from a business perspective too. The data shows that from the 7,018 tickets sold, a total of $533,717 was made by AEW. This would make the average ticket sale price around $75. This conflicts with WrestleTix, who claim that AEW had closer to 6,771 tickets distributed for the WrestleDream event.
These figures would make WrestleDream the lowest-drawing PPV in terms of ticket sales for AEW in 2023, though this would make sense given that it was the inaugural edition of the show.
