AEW To Expand Pay-Per-View Schedule

AEW President Tony Khan

More AEW pay-per-views are on the way in 2024.

In the second half of 2023, AEW began to expand its pay-per-view schedule, and according to a new report, this trend will continue. As well as its traditional four big events, AEW hosted Forbidden Door alongside NJPW for a second year running, headed to the UK for All In, and is set to host WrestleDream on October 1st.

According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast, the end result will see AEW move to MAX in 2024 and run 12 pay-per-view events a year.

“I think next year is going to be very interesting for them [AEW] considering the rights deal is gonna be done soon, MAX…I feel confident to say MAX is going to be their home…I also feel confident that they are going to run 12 PPV’s a year. Not a prediction my friend… I feel very confident to say it.”

AEW Struggling With Slow Ticket Sales

AEW All In at Wembley Stadium was a huge financial success for the company, with over 80,000 tickets sold — although the “turnstile count” was lower. Despite this impressive turnout, things haven’t gone so smoothly domestically.

It was recently reported that AEW has sold only half the amount of tickets for Grand Slam that they sold in 2022. With the event set to take place on September 20th, the company is now offering buy-one-get-one-free deals on tickets.
