Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that initial numbers indicate the show saw approximately 150,000–155,000 purchases over the traditional pay-per-view. If the estimates are correct then it did more than double or nothing 2021, which pulled in around 140,000 buys.
Meltzer noted that the crossover between WWE and AEW fans was limited to Double or Nothing and WrestleMania 38 because only 3.2% of fans ordered both shows on pay-per-view. It should be noted that it doesn't track those watching on Peacock the way most fans watch WWE events, so for what it's worth.
AEW Double Or Nothing took place on May 29, 2022, at the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada.
Thirteen matches were contested at the event, including one on The Buy In pre-show. In the main event, CM Punk defeated "Hangman" Adam Page to win the AEW World Championship, for Punk’s first world championship win since 2011.
