AEW Full Gear surpasses $1 million in live gate revenue

For the fifth time in 2022, AEW surpassed the $1 million live gate mark.

For the first time in its four-year history, Saturday's AEW Full Gear in Newark, New Jersey, has surpassed $1 million in gate revenue.

AEW head Tony Khan tweeted the news Saturday afternoon:

As indicated, the number continues a run of four straight $1 million live gates for AEW pay-per-views which includes May's Double or Nothing (Las Vegas), June's Forbidden Door with NJPW (Chicago), and September's All Out (Chicago).

Double or Nothing marked the first time AEW hit the $1 million live gate number. The company also exceeded $1 million for September's Grand Slam Dynamite/Rampage event in Queens, New York.

AEW will hope to exceed last year's estimated 155,000 pay-per-view buys for the same show, headlined by then-AEW World Champion Kenny Omega vs. Hangman Page. The number was an increase from the estimated 75,000 the shows did in both 2019 and 2020.
