The big question everyone wanted to know was how often the PPV ” Double or Nothing ” of the All Elite Wrestling was purchased. Today the Wrestling Observer announces that the PPV would have been bought 98 000 times on Saturday, May 25th. Figures that would be divided in half between PPV TV channels and digital PPV channels. Two-thirds of the purchases would come from the United States, followed by the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany and Canada.
To compare, the first All In event had reached 55,000 purchases. It should not be forgotten that these figures for Double or Nothing will continue to rise with the replay purchases to exceed the best PPV ECW that accumulated 99 000 purchases at the time. Which is a very good result knowing that at the time illegal streaming was much more difficult to access, so more people were buying PPVs by default. For example, a WWE PPV at the time accumulated 200,000 purchases for a traditional show like Money in the Bank and Elimination Chamber and exceeded one million for WrestleMania.
But these figures of 98,000 still remain excellent as this show will become the most purchased PPV in the history of wrestling, excluding WWE and WCW.
