AEW Full Gear has hit a $1 million live gate for the first time since its inaugural event in 2019.

Tony Khan announced the milestone on Twitter, while also noting that the pay-per-view is the fourth in a row to cross the sales threshold in 2022.

 

The first Full Gear was staged at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, headlined by a lights-out match between Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega. It was attended by approximately 8,200 people.

The second edition of the event, in 2020, was held at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. The main event saw Jon Moxley retain the AEW World Championship against Eddie Kingston in an “I quit” match. With Covid restrictions still in place, only around 1,000 people were in attendance.

In 2021, the event was hosted by the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and was attended by 10,442 people. In the main event, Adam Page won the AEW World Championship from Kenny Omega.

As of the latest from WrestleTix, posted more than 24 hours ago, 11,499 tickets were out for this year’s event, with just 819 still available.
