The latest AEW pay-per-view, Revolution, got around 100,000 to 105,000 buys. This is according to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Revolution, which took place in Chicago’s Wintrust Arena on February 29, saw Jon Moxley win the AEW World Championship from the inaugural champion, Chris Jericho. Revolution is now the second-highest selling AEW pay-per-view after Double or Nothing last May.
AEW is supposed to hold a second Double or Nothing pay-per-view this coming May 23 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. As of the writing of this post, there’s no announcement that the plans have changed but of course it depends on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Diamond Dallas Page, who recently joined AEW, maybe a WWE Hall of Famer, but according to him his relationship with the company has soured since he agreed to help AEW’s Cody Rhodes.
Page has made appearances on AEW Dynamite and has also allowed them to use his Performance Center for segments for AEW Dark.
Page told Alex McCarthy of talkSPORTS that, because of the help he gave AEW, WWE was no longer willing to work with him.
Page said that he helped AEW because of his relationship with Cody Rhodes, specifically because of his relationship with Cody’s late father Dusty.
Dusty Rhodes, said Page, was instrumental in helping him get over in WCW which is where DDP got his start. Since then Page has considered Rhodes and his family good friends.
