Re: AEW TV Ratings, PPV Buys & Ticket Sales Thread: LET'S GO CRAZY! LET'S GET NUTS!
the ppv price isn't going to change anything, this is something meltzer and Alvarez discussed before even DON. people were screaming everywhere about the price and on the observer radio they went through all the statistics they had and the conclusion was just that the ppv price never and will never change anything. if aew put their ppv for 20$ they will do around the same numbers, there is simply only a very few margin of the team "if it was lower I would have brought it" but this portion is insignificant.
with those "outrageous" prices DON did 120k and Alll out is around 110k (even tho we aren't very sure since Fite tv denied some parts of the report by Dave about their numbers but still) even going by dave's numbers they did around the same and thats after losing arguably 1) the biggest fight of the card in term of hype and 2) the fight which was set up at the end of don in the post main event fight.
I know it can sound weird but thats how it is, aew can keep the same price but if they can manage to keep their ppv as special as they are now or even hell use tv to build more hype then it will be the same.
what they need to do is stick to the 4 ppv/year format and always deliver the big box office matches on ppv and not tv, or at least avoid it. and they will in fact have to create stars ( which is everything but an easy task). but lowering the price won't do shit for their numbers.
