The less the merrier? Wrestling has been on television for a long time and that has become the main method of distribution for a lot of promotions. Those shows tend to build up to a bigger show, which often airs on pay per view. The pay per view events are often some of the biggest of the year, but now it seems that one of the bigger promotions is putting a limit on theirs.
Over the last three years, WWE has presented a two night WrestleMania event. During a recent appearance at Terrificon, AEW star Dustin Rhodes said that he had heard AEW was planning to expand into two night pay per views as well. AEW President Tony Khan appeared on Busted Open Radio and squashed the rumor, saying that AEW had no intention to switch to two night pay per views at any time in the future. AEW’s next pay per view is on September 4 with All Out.
Opinion: This is one of those things that seemed to get screwed up in the pipeline but I’m glad to see that this does not seem to be the case at the moment. The two night pay per view schedule is not something that often works out as it makes each night seem a little less important than one overall. It wouldn’t surprise me to see this be the case in the future, but for now, I’m glad AEW is sticking with one.
What do you think of the AEW pay per view schedule? How could it be improved? Let us know in the comments below.
