• Tony Khan Reveals The Updated Pay-Per-View Buys For AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door

During the post AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door PPV media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan revealed that the show drew over $1 million in ticket sales.

Also during the media scrum, Khan said they did over 100,000 buys, which means over $5 million in PPV revenue:

“The show was a big success. We had ticket sales of over $1.1 million. I think it will be within literally thousands, just behind Double or Nothing, but right there, both over $1.1 million live ticket sales.

The pay-per-view, I said if we hit 100,000 worldwide buys, I would feel it’s a big success and I feel very comfortable now, based on the early digital numbers, saying we did 100,000 buys and more. I feel great about that.”

He also tweeted the following:

“Thank you to everyone, especially wrestling fans around the world, who made last Sunday’s #ForbiddenDoor event a hit, with >$1 million in ticket sales + >$5 million on ppv!”

Khan appeared on the latest episode of Busted Open Radio and revealed the updated pay-per-view buys for AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door:

“The Forbidden Door Pay-Per-View was a huge success. We estimate about 127,000 buys right now and still, with replay, buys trickling in, it was ahead of all projections and expectations. And I absolutely would love to do it again, and I think that we will do it again going forward, I anticipate.”
