    They are still getting the same rights fees as they did when they started. No change was ever reported.
    How are ticket sales a small portion of revenue when they can potentially net them 400k to 1m per show, which is much, much more than their hottest PPV's, especially considering they run 8 or more shows a month and only 1 PPV every month or 2 (or 3??)

        Ok, you don't understand how anything works and clearly have never had a job.
        Do you think that every provider charges the same amount for aew shows? Do you believe that they actually sold that many when there is no proof at all?
        Do you think that aew gets 100% of all purchases across all services? In most countries those shows cost significantly less. The percentage of sales that aew gets is maybe 60% at the high end and even on planet moron where they do sell 180k, once the expenses for the show are figured out they still come out in the red.

        You don't know what you are talking about
        Let's say the PPV brought in 9m, even though that isn't true, because it is cheaper in other countries and there is no actual proof of their buyrates
        >That is split with PPV provider
        >PPV's incur higher marketing costs
        >Usually bigger venues which cost more to rent and staff
        >PPV's incur different taxes in each country than what is paid for regular tv distribution
        >Due to PPV runtimes they have to pay the venue and staff more plus rent the venue for two or three days if setup and takedown run too early or far for other events to be held consecutively
        If they run the minimum of 8 tv events a the minimum of 400k gates a month the numbers are close or higher than the PPV's they run, and they don't run PPV's every month. Two months of tv is higher than the revenue from a PPV every single time, even using the lowest possible tv gates and highest PPV revenue. What Meltzer said is clearly incorrect.

    Selling more ppvs annually because you booked more ppvs is not increased revenue. They increased spend by organising, trademarking, promoting, designing, marketing, organising, travel, etc etc for another show and any increase on paper in ppv sales is offset by a massive increase in cost.
    Their rights money has not increased. They expenditure has in every category. They have licensed more music, changed sets and branding again, signed a load of more people, etc etc. they're losing more money than ever, it's very obvious.
    You can copy and paste this at Dave if you want, he blocked me for proving him wrong over a year ago.

      All correct, but only thing you should change is that it's more revenue, but less profits. They bring 5 percent more in by spending 10 percent more than before then call it a win.

        Anonymous

        But immediately the pov already runs at a loss, unless they manage their books weirdly. And we don't even know what split they have with each PPV provider so the number is at best 60% of sales. That's not an increase in revenue by quarter when their merchandise, ticket sales and ppv sales are down per show and they've lost multiple international broadcast deals and sponsors. It's a significant drop in revenue.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Ah okay, I get what you were saying now. The revenue is not actually increasing from added PPV's due to all their other metrics going down with only tv rights staying static, while the roster and backstage budget continues to inflate.
          They added around 10m or more recently with signings to their roster costs, but obviously didn't start making any money back from them besides a few small merch numbers, while ratings and attendance continued to drop and they are also paying way more for transportation and a bit more for lodging.

        I'm well aware. And the song is worse than Briscoe's normal music, it got no reaction and Mark has done nothing since.

        He said revenue increased, which makes sense with an extra show. Your 'proving him wrong' argument is based on the assumption that every PPV runs at a net loss, which there's no evidence for.

        My proving him wrong was over a year ago, you can't read. They observably spend more than they make. There is no way to argue otherwise unless you're a moron coping.
        Every week of AEW runs at a loss. If you have enough insider knowledge to understand 40% of their spend then you know that it's Impossible for them to even break even without substantial TV rights increases. Just the most obvious and visibly expenses of arenas, talent, branding and media rights cost more than all of their combined incomes. And that's a small fraction of their expenses.

          Tony Khan: 'Spent more than I'd planned going into this year' on AEW & ROH
          Khan's response:

          I think that this year I have been very active not only in the free agent market, but in the production budget. There are things tonight, like for example, on one song alone, I spent like a year's pay for most pro wrestlers in this business.

          And the budget not only with free agency, but production, is very high. And also we're going into a contract year. And I plan to continue on being very active not only in free agency, but in the production of the show and producing great content.

          Going into this year, I have to look at where we're at. I'd really spent more than I'd planned going into this year

        Are you seriously suggesting 20-50 beans is a lot of money? To anyone? A lot of wrestling fans are probably on them NEET bux too. People who buy PPVs are from all over bro. It's not that hard to believe AEW has a loyal fanbase that will help them shift 100k PPVs. Also, they're not every month are they? Don't be so disingenuous. Wrestling fans are like Marvel nerds. They buy figures, tees, belts, etc.. But the thought of them buying a PPV for the price of a takeout? That's unbelievable to you?

        Apparently TNA's Hard to Kill did 28k buys and they're a hell of a lot less popular than AEW. If you can believe TNA can do those numbers then I don't know why AEW doing 4x that is such a stretch.

            >They're only setting up for 50k or so this year
            Holy fricking cope. If sales were better, they'd open up more seats. Don't be such a mark.

            So you do think there's a chance they've sold 20k tickets since the last update from Wrestletix?

            Help me out here, are you being dishonest, or have you just been misled? There isn't any conceivable metric you could use to say that All In tickets are selling faster than last year. That May 2nd 36k announcement from last year was on the first day of sales, while ticket sales for this year's All In opened in December, and they've not even broken 41k yet.

            >tickets for Wembley this year are selling even faster than last year
            That is a complete lie, unless they manage to sell an extra 20k tickets in the next 5 days.

            Actually Taylor Swift is playing Wembley 4 days before and there's not enough time to set up a full stadium show. Hope this helps.

            Nice cope. If sales go up and they open up another 10k seats, what will your new cope be?

            Setting up a wrestling show and stage at a venue like Wembley in 4 days is not possible friend. It's also actually smart of Tony to realise they couldn't repeat last year. If he tried and there was double the empty seats it would look bad. Tony is damned either way with you guys.

            I agree, I doubt AEW are going to break 50k, even with their tickets priced so cheaply. The cheapest tickets for Clash at the Castle are over 10x this price btw.

            1k tickets away from selling out. It's funny, WWE would probably make more money from selling that last 1k than AEW would make from selling their last 10k.

          No... They are a public company scrutinized from 1000's of sources and have public data available plus success observable from your own eyes in terms of attendance and so forth.
          The argument wasn't even about AEW's success, it was about Meltzer moronic logic which is clearly flawed, yet fanboys think they have to defend Meltzer as being correct to defend AEW, even though that also means defending the fact that Meltzer's criticisms about AEW and acclaim for WWE must also be correct, which further proves the hypocrisy and ridiculousness of the whole thing but it doesn't matter because being an AEW shill is now about telling lies and making up headcanon instead of just enjoying the good shit they do and having fun discussing it. Everything is about WWE somehow or another.

            You should have no problem posting some of them then?
            BTW, ratings are down for lots of things. Millions are cutting cable. Even more will do so in the coming years. WWE were very smart getting on Netflix because their ratings were only going to continue going down too

            I don't think attendance is everything either. The next RAW is in a venue that holds 16,000, but they're only set up for half of that. WWE is supposedly red hot, but ratings and attendance are already starting to fall. AEW you can understand. They lost talent and WWE got better, giving many no reason to care about AEW anymore. WWE have no excuses. They're supposed to be red hot.

            Ratings and attemdance fluctuate with the season. WWE is up from where they were 2 years ago, and post-WM is when they cool down. Their average ticket sales per month are still the highest in company history, and they are still making record money, record merch sales, record PPV viewership, record gates, etc. RAW doesn't have Cody or Seth now, both of which were adding 200-300k per segment or more in the build to Mania. Smackdown is still strong but missing Roman or other featured acts like Cena has has been in and out. They have full crowd shots of shows are the place is clearly packed in. Not every show has to sell every single possible seat configurable, no company has ever done that in any era, and WWE's strategy is limiting seating then releasing small batches of new tickets to create continued buzz in the market and maintain demand by reinforcing the idea that if you don't buy tickets right away you might miss out.

            Good one bro. Maybe try looking into some of the venues they're at. You'll soon realise they're often only setting up for half what the place holds. Sales aren't looking too hot for May either

          Bullshitting the shareholders is a risky business, AEW is privately owned so Tony Khan can say whatever he wants.

      Trying to claim attendance and viewership has no correlation with PPV buys and even that buys can be up when viewership and attendance is way down goes against logic.

    I honestly think there’s nothing ulterior about Dave parroting whatever shit that tonikan feeds him as fact, he’s just so autistic that he thinks the head of the company giving him info is as good of a source as you can possibly get and doesn’t think twice about how he’s being used to try and prop up AEW’s image. It’s pretty telling that he seems to know so much about how much AEW’s revenue has increased year to year, but is still in the dark about their expenditures and profitability.

    Dave doesn't seem to realize that running more shows means AEW is paying for more production.

    Since AEW has never made a profit, spending more money will surely lead to a profit, because that is how it works, ri-right guys?!?!?
