The concern is there is no visible growth. AEW is not adding buyers, yet the payroll keeps growing, the influx of talent keeps increasing, nobody can say that is a good thing, mathematically. If they trimmed their roster and payroll then perhaps not a big deal but they are doing the opposite.

Revolution is down 22.5% from last year’s event.
Dave Meltzer reported the updated PPV buy rate for AEW Revolution.
The show will likely end up doing around 133,000 buys. It was noted that the traditional PPV buys are closer to what both Full Gear and All Out did last year.
However, overall buys are down 0.7% from the past two shows. This includes international numbers dropping and US numbers potentially closer to Full Gear.
Revolution is down 22.5% from last year’s event; with traditional buys, it’s almost the same as what last year’s Forbidden show and Double or Nothing drew.
