According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW All Out drew well over 200,000 buys and is now the most-watched AEW pay-per-view event in the history of the company. It has also become the most watched non-WWE wrestling pay-per-view since 1999. According to reports, it also surpassed WWE SummerSlam 2021 by four percent in Google Searches.
With that being said, this year’s SummerSlam had much higher interest than usual, as the show was being held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, and John Cena vs. Roman Reigns was the main event. Also, there were rumored surprises to be happening leading up to the event. Both SummerSlam 2021 and AEW All Out drew more than 500,000 Google searches on the day of each pay-per-view event.
Usually, AEW winds up with below 200,000 searches for their pay-per-views. CM Punk’s debut on AEW Rampage also drew 500,000 searches on the day of the show.
AEW All Out had 10,164 fans in attendance, with about 9,000 paid. That resulted in a $700,000 gate. That marks the biggest live gate in AEW history so far. AEW is expected to break this record at the Arthur Ashe Stadium show on September 22nd. The Rampage broadcast for CM Punk’s debut at the United Center drew a higher attendance than AEW All Out, but the gate was a little lower with $635,000. This is because the show had lower ticket prices.
