AEW All Out 2021 Expected To Break All PPV Records

AEW's latest pay-per-view looks set to become the most successful non-WWE show in over 20 years.

All Elite Wrestling's previous pay-per-view records are about to get their heads kicked in.

Yesterday saw the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer tweeted something that has been predicted by many pundits over the past few weeks, stating that while the numbers themselves are yet to emerge, All Out 2021 is set to become the most successful pay-per-view (in terms of buys) in AEW history:-

2021 has already been an extremely successful year for AEW pay-per-views. Revolution 2021 scored a company record 135,000 buys in February, grossing just under $6.8 million dollars in the process thanks to the immense hype built for the show. This was followed by Double Or Nothing's estimated 115,000 buys and $6.1 million gross revenue in May.

All Out now looks like it's about to outdo both.


It'll likely be a while longer before the numbers come out, but with the buzz from CM Punk's return to wrestling, the weekly shows' consistent quality, and the expected Bryan Danielson debut (which ended up going down at the end of the night), Tony Khan's promotion is widely expected to outdo itself once more.

AEW's next PPV, Full Gear 2021, goes down on 13 November.
