Pat McAfee Takes Shot At AEW Over Double Or Nothing Attendance
Pat McAfee comments on AEW Double or Nothing
Pat McAfee poked fun at All Elite Wrestling's Double or Nothing pay-per-view on the latest edition of the Pat McAfee Show.
AEW held Double or Nothing at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, May 28. The show struggled to move tickets, however, and 10,229 tickets were distributed for the event by show time, according to WrestleTix. Ticket sales initially hovered around 6,000 but picked up in the weeks before the show as various deals were introduced, including a four tickets for $40 offer.
Empty seats could still be seen in the arena, though, with the area around the hard cam particularly empty. The upper level above the hard cam was mostly draped off too.
With the venue not being sold out, Pat McAfee stated on his show that AEW found out the hard way about photos being taken opposite the hard cam and showing empty seats. The former SmackDown commentator exaggerated how empty T-Mobile Arena was, however, saying the building was only 25 percent full.
McAfee, of course, is affiliated with WWE and he signed a three-year extension with the company in July of 2022. His WWE future is uncertain as he recently signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to take the Pat McAfee Show to ESPN.
