Report: Double Or Nothing 2021 Set To Be AEW's Second-Most-Purchased PPV
Another successful PPV for AEW
Early estimates for Double Or Nothing's pay-per-view buyrate are in and the show looks to have been another successful event for All Elite Wrestling.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter's Dave Meltzer estimated the pay-per-view did between 135,000 and 150,000 buys, handily beating Double Or Nothing 2020's 120,000 buys.
The May 30 show has fallen short of Revolution 2021, though, which was AEW's most purchased pay-per-view so far, although a final official figure is not yet available for that event.
International pay-per-view buys for Double Or Nothing were said to have been the same as last year, but B/R Live viewers were up 12 percent as of May 31. That number could end up being close to 20 percent higher, though, depending on the number of late buys.
Pay-per-view purchases through TV were up 98 percent from last year as of May 30 but were 9 percent down from Revolution 2021.
The show was also a financial success inside Daily's Place and the event drew a $300,000 gate. 5,200 fans attended the event with 4,700 paid. This was 300 short of a sellout.
