Report: AEW Revolution Does Roughly 125,000 Buys Worldwide, Grosses Just Over $5 Million

AEW Revolution set records for the company.

According to a report from Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, early estimates are suggesting that the PPV attracted roughly 125,000 viewers worldwide, the highest of any AEW event, across both digital and traditional platforms.

If the calculations are correct, it will mean Revolution generated just over $5 million. This was determined by combining PPV buys as well as ticket and merchandising sales. After subtracting the percentage that is taken by the various service providers the show will net approximately $2 million. Thurston notes that the event probably required under $1 million to produce, which means that at the end of the day, AEW profited around $1 million.

Revolution was headlined by Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley in an Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match. After Omega successfully retained his AEW Championship, he and The Good Brothers left Moxley in the ring just as all the explosives were set to detonate. Eddie Kingston came to his longtime friend's rescue, laying down on top of him, but it was all for not as the "bomb" turned out to be a dud.

Omega recently issued a statement on the show's much-talked-about conclusion.
