AEW Double or Nothing PPV buys could be their second-best ever

While still early, AEW Double or Nothing's pay-per-view buys are trending toward the second highest total the company has ever done.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that the U.S. streaming numbers for last Sunday's show were up 12% from the previous year's Double or Nothing which did 120,000 total buys -- the most in company history going into this year.

Meltzer said the advanced linear TV buys data were also up, but those typically take months to be settled.

If the numbers hold up, it would be another strong PPV outing for AEW who did a company best in PPV buys and revenue for March's Revolution, headlined by AEW World Champion Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley in a exploding barbed wire deathmatch.

Of note, the Double or Nothing go-home edition of Dynamite was on Friday at 10 PM Eastern instead of Wednesday at 8 PM Eastern and did the lowest amount of viewers and lowest 18-49 demo in company history.

This year's Double or Nothing was headlined by Omega defending against Orange Cassidy and PAC in a three-way in addition to Stadium Stampede II. Like Revolution, the PPV was on a Sunday and also had a full capacity at Jacksonville's Daily's Place.

The company's next two PPVs are September's All Out in Chicago on a Sunday night and November's Full Gear in St. Louis on a Saturday night.
