Update on MJF: Did reality become a work? – AEW Double or Nothing 2022: Initial PPV Buy Rate Estimates and Record Ticket Sales Earnings – Preview of Today’s Live Edition of AEW Rampage

– The story of MJF continues: now the young star has been removed from the side of the AEW roster. MJF merchandise can no longer be found in the shop either. MJF no longer plays a role in the social media of the official AEW channels, he can neither be seen in photos nor YouTube videos. So it remains to be seen how All Elite Wrestling and the self-proclaimed “Salt of the Earth” will continue.

MJF’s promo on last week’s AEW Dynamite drew mixed reactions backstage. Fightful spoke to some of the wrestlers on the AEW roster, with reactions ranging from “it was a work for MJF from the start” to “it’s a work now”. Should it turn out that both parties were in on it from the start, it would cause too much frustration behind the scenes. Since the start of the promotion, Khan has repeatedly assured that such works, which also leave the talents and employees in the dark, should not be expected. In addition, due to the fact that MJF did not show up for the meet & greet on Saturday, some colleagues had to work extra shifts at the event to fill in for him. However, it was agreed that Khan would not have allowed the promo on “AEW Dynamite” if there was no plan behind it. Therefore, it is believed that at the post-PPV meetings, a consensus was reached and a storyline was now agreed. So the story probably started out as a real disagreement and has since turned into a work.

– Initial estimates of the buy rate of the AEW Double or Nothing 2022 PPV range from 150,000 to 155,000 sales. However, it is still too early for a reliable statement and this is more of a trend based on certain markets. The final buy rate can therefore vary greatly from the first estimates. Below are the buy rates of previous AEW PPVs:
AEW PPV buy rates:
AEW Double or Nothing 2019: 98,000 buys
AEW All Out 2019: 88,000 buys
AEW Full Gear 2019: 80,000 buys
AEW Revolution 2020: 90,000 buys
AEW Double or Nothing 2020: 105,000 buys
AEW All Out 2020: 90,000 buys
AEW Full Gear 2020: 85,000 buys
AEW Revolution 2021: 135,000 buys
AEW Double or Nothing 2021: 115,000 buys
AEW All Out 2021: 205,000 buys
AEW Full Gear 2021: approx. 145,000 buys
AEW Revolution 2022: 148,000 to 170,000 buys
AEW Double or Nothing 2022: 150,000 to 155,000 buys

– A total of 14,459 spectators were in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, including 13,800 paying fans. Ticket sales brought in approximately $1.15 million.
