Backstage Update On Expansion Of AEW PPVs To One Per Month

According to a story from earlier this week via Fightful, Warner Bros. Discovery wants AEW to increase the frequency of their pay-per-view events to one per month.

AEW holds five PPV events every year, beginning with Revolution, followed by Double Or Nothing, Forbidden Door, All Out, and Full Gear. That was the number of events when WWE added the King of the Ring to their schedule in 1993, but in 1995, WWE expanded to 12 events to keep up with what WCW was doing at the time.

WBD’s PPV expansion conversation comes as no surprise given that they receive a cut from PPV purchases made through Bleacher Report and stand to make significantly more money with 12 events per year. Dave Meltzer revealed in the weekly Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the PPV expansion has been discussed but no decision has been made.

According to Andrew Zarian, ALL IN London will air as a pay-per-view just one week before the All Out PPV in Chicago. If ALL IN becomes a yearly habit, they will already be running six shows every year.
