The wrestling world is abuzz with whispers and speculations, and it seems that All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is at the centre of it all.

AEW has been on a steady trajectory of growth, adding events like WrestleDream and All In London to their annual calendar. But 2024 promises to be an even more eventful year for AEW enthusiasts.

The company is reportedly gearing up to ramp up its event schedule, making it a whirlwind year for fans and wrestlers alike.

Speculations about AEW on Max Streaming Service

Rumours have been circulating about AEW’s content possibly becoming available on the Max streaming service. There were earlier whispers about the All In event being streamed on Max, but technical challenges prevented this from becoming a reality.

However, Andrew Zarian from the Mat Men Podcast has shed light on this, suggesting that AEW is looking to expand its PPV calendar to a whopping 12 events annually.

Moreover, these events might soon be accessible on the Max streaming service, marking a significant development in AEW’s broadcasting strategy.

The Financial Implications for Fans

One of the most significant advantages of this potential move could be financial relief for fans. Currently, fans might have to spend around $50 for each PPV event.

However, a subscription to the Max streaming service could be a more economical alternative, offering fans access to all the action at a fraction of the cost.

But, we do not know if the deal would just be all of the current television programming or whether it would also include all of the aforementioned 12 PPV offerings.
