All Elite Wrestling may have started out as a fresh company at the start of the year, but they have made massive waves in these last few months. Signing several high-profile names like Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley, along with giving WWE a run for their money on Wednesday nights, is impressive for a year-old franchise.

AEW scheduled five PPVs in 2019, with two of them basically being promotional content for their launch on national television. Double or Nothing, All Out and Full Gear were the major PPVs organized in 2019, and all of the PPVs received rave reviews from the critics.

Unlike their rivals WWE, AEW hasn’t announced the PPV schedule for 2020 yet, but they have recently signed a deal with In Demand for producing quarterly PPVs through June 2021. This is excellent news for the Florida based company, which will look to follow the NXT model rather than the main-roster model of monthly PPVs. In Demand is one of the leading video-on-demand and pay-per-view programming distributors in the United States.

AEW President Tony Khan said that this deal will help AEW reach more audiences in the country.

“AEW pay-per-view events are the best shows in wrestling, and In Demand is a perfect PPV partner for us as well as our fans. With In Demand’s vast reach and connectivity, we’ll be able to bring all of our AEW pay-per-view shows into the homes of wrestling fans throughout North America.”

AEW current follows the traditional PPV based model, and have priced it quite aggressively at 50 dollars. In comparison, WWE’s own streaming service, WWE Network, offers PPVs at 10 dollars per month, which has completely changed the game in the PPV industry. Technically, WWE shows aren’t ‘pay-per-views’ anymore, as they come as part of a package also including several other benefits.

Although AEW is yet to announce any PPV for 2020, expect major announcements to come our way soon. Every promotion has the major showcase of the year (WrestleMania, Triplemania, Final Battle, NJPW Tokyo Dome, etc), and it will be interesting to see what AEW’s version of the flagship event is.
