AEW Double or Nothing priced at $59.95

Double Or Nothing

We’re just two weeks away from the epic debut of All Elite Wrestling. Their first official show, Double or Nothing, will take place on May 25th from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Those of us who weren’t able to witness the event live and in person will be able to watch it from our homes, though. Double or Nothing will air on Pay-Per-View, although the price may be a bit high.

PWInsider has revealed that, at the moment, Xfinity currently lists the product at $59.95. It may seem steep, but it was only a few years ago that we were paying that price for most wrestling PPVs.

What do you think of the price? Are you willing to fork over $59.95 for AEW’s first official event?

    Forget that expect a big let down.

  • Mike the Ike

    Gee, I wonder if anyone will sit in the FIRSTROW.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Honestly, you could be right, I don’t know for sure how these things are set in the US, but if that is the case, they should try a better provider, ’cause a price like that is going to hurt the company, especially if the show isn’t a huge success from top to bottom. (Which, to be fair, it could be!)

    I hope that whoever set that price knows what they’re doing, ’cause right now, nearly every comment I’ve seen everywhere about this has been along the lines of “Yeah, no thanks, I’d rather pirate it at that price”.

    Well that’s how I watch RAW and Smackdown every week as I am not paying £60+ a month for the priviledge of watching them. I do pay for the Network as the content you get for £10 a month is actually worthwhile.

  • CC

    Probably not their choice. Price is probably set by the broadcaster.

    I think part of the reason we always get PPVs cheaper, and was always the same with WWE, is that we already pay through the nose for Sky and especially their sports channels. Before the Network, I always used to pay around £15 for WWE PPVs.

  • StoneColdBeckyLynch

    It sounds misleading

  • Luke

    …which would make it the majority of the amount, which is what “the thick end” means…

  • Nick Scott

    Thick end of $100? I’m no mathematician $59.99 is hardly the thick end of $100, it’s just over half

  • gar216

    That’s pretty steep. Here’s the thing, there are just too many other avenues for entertainment these days. Sure I’d like to see it and sure I can afford it, but I literally have dozens of other things that are on my “I need to watch this” list.

    WWE was smart with their move to the network because they realized that PPV wasn’t the market that it used to be. They we’re giving away too much to providers and fewer people were watching due to other alternatives.

  • Luke

    In what universe did a wrestling PPV EVER cost the thick end of $100??

    Assuming this is true, it’s absolutely insane. People will just stream it illegally at a greater level.

  • Nick Scott

    It’s only £14.99 in Uk

  • Keith Learmonth

    That is a bad decision for a company that needs to build an initial fanbase. First PPV should’ve been offered cheap to draw people in. I hope this isn’t a pattern going forward for them, otherwise they’re not going to be around long.


    I fully intend to watch this PPV on a live stream. $59.95 LMFAO

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Yea, everybody will just find a way to stream it for free lol.
