Tony Khan Explains Decision To Hold AEW Revolution On A Sunday

Since the first AEW Double or Nothing in 2019, All Elite Wrestling has held its pay-per-view events on a Saturday.

That changes with AEW Revolution, which is scheduled for Sunday, March 7. This Sunday, February 28, AEW will hold a special event focused on the AEW Women's Title Eliminator Tournament. The event will stream on Bleacher Report.

Speaking to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Khan explained the decision to run Revolution on Sunday and the idea behind the Bleacher Report event.

"I worked really hard to get Bleacher Report on board and get a special for us. Before we even knew we were doing the Women's Eliminator Tournament, I knew I wanted to get a special on Bleacher Report on Sunday to build a habit for Revolution. We didn't have a history of running on Sunday, so I felt if we put on a great show and got fans in the habit of watching AEW on Sunday, we could establish. I love the Saturday pay-per-view. Double or Nothing and All Out come on holiday weekends and it's a good weekend to do pay-per-view. Saturday or Sunday isn't as important there. Full Gear, I want to do on Saturday because I have no intention of competing with the NFL. Doing a show on Sunday is important to me," said Khan.

The Bleacher Report event will be headlined by the Japan final between Yuka Sakazaki and Ryo Mizunami and the US semifinal between Riho and Thunder Rosa. You can find more information on the event by clicking here.
