Tony Khan noted after the show that Forbidden Door drew over 100,000 buys based on early estimates.

"The show was a big success. We had ticket sales of over $1.1 million. I think it will be within literally thousands, just behind Double or Nothing, but right there, both over $1.1 million live ticket sales. The pay-per-view, I said if we hit 100,00 worldwide buys, I would feel it’s a big success and I feel very comfortable now, based on the early digital numbers, saying we did 100,000 buys and more. I feel great about that," Khan said during the Forbidden Door post-show press conference.

Khan also stated that the show drew over $5 million on pay-per-view.
