PPV Buy Estimates For AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door Revealed AEW

The estimated pay-per-view buyrate for the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door show have now been revealed.

AEW president Tony Khan took to Twitter earlier this week to announce that the show made over $1 million in ticket sales, and over $5 million on pay-per-view, though the exact number was not stated.

Per Dave Meltzer in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the show was down 18% on streaming buys and 23.9% on cable buys from the Double or Nothing show, with the show drawing an estimated 125,000 – 127,000 buys.

He said:

“The early estimate based on streaming buys were down 18 percent from Double or Nothing, and cable buys at press time were down 23.9 percent. Right now the estimate is 125,000 to 127,000 buys. About 80 percent of the buys were from the U.S., which is a higher percentage than usual. The show meant more to American fans than those outside the country.” “At the end of the day, the PPV number beat most expectations and is more than strong enough to make it an annual event.” “That’s down from just over 155,000 for last month’s show, but everyone going in knew it would be down and the show exceeded most predictions”

Tony Khan has already discussed a possible second show,which you can read about here.
