Since the launch of AEW, the promotion has tried to stick with holding four pay-per-view events in a calendar year.
Those events are Revolution, Double or Nothing, All Out, and Full Gear. AEW President Tony Khan first talked about not bringing back Bash at the Beach in January while doing a post-Full Gear scrum. Instead, they’ll be replacing it with Beach Break.
“What a question Bill, you’ve t’d up news that I am going to break, there’s going to be Beach Break in January and in December we’ve got some huge events taking place also.”
It should be noted that WWE just applied for the Bash at the Beach trademark after opposing Cody Rhodes for not just that name, but also trademarks related to previous WCW themes.
Khan noted that there will be some big episodes of Dynamite coming up. Khan was later asked in the scrum about expanding how many PPV events they put on each year. The AEW President wants to stick with four.
“I love our big four shows, I think Revolution, Double or Nothing, All Out, and Full Gear as the big shows spaced out throughout the year provides anticipation while Dynamite, we have huge episodes of Dynamite (with various themes) are huge draws.”
Khan brought up having Dynamite, Dark, and the new show coming out as ways to expand their programming but doesn’t see them expanding with other pay-per-view events.
