AEW President Tony Khan has claimed that AEW will gross over $100 million this year.
Speaking with Wrestling Observer Radio, Khan stated that sustaining AEW’s success is his true goal, noting:
“This is the first time there have been two wrestling companies that have the ability to be the number one show that night on cable and two wrestling companies that are grossing the kind of money…I’m not grossing a billion dollars, but I’m going to gross over $100 million this year. That’s pretty unprecedented and it’s been over 20 years since anybody is doing that. To me, success is sustaining it,” he said.
Khan previously revealed that the September 4 All Out pay-per-view has passed $1 million in live ticket sales. The event will emanate from the NOW Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
CM Punk is set to challenge for Jon Moxley’s AEW World Championship in the main event of the show, following his shock loss in their undisputed title bout.
Several other titles will be on the line, and the finals of the AEW Trios Championship tournament will also take place.
