Pat McAfee has poked fun at AEW Double or Nothing 2023 following reports that the show struggled to move tickets.

AEW's fifth Double or Nothing show took place last weekend and was promoted as a 'double main event show.' The first of these main events saw AEW World Champion MJF retain against Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara, and 'Jungle Boy' Jack Perry. The second main event saw the Blackpool Combat Club defeat The Elite in Anarchy in the Arena. Double or Nothing saw the AEW Women's World Championship and AEW TBS Championship change hands.

While AEW Double or Nothing was one of the company's biggest events of the year, the show struggled when it comes to ticket sales. Brandon Thurston reports that on the day of the show, 10,000 tickets had been distributed. He went on to say that several sections weren't full and that the upper level on the hard cam had been draped. In a previous edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer described the ticket sales as a "disappointment" to AEW, who had sold out the T-Mobile Arena for Double or Nothing in 2019 and 2022.

AEW had attempted to move tickets with a 4 for $40 offer, to some success. There was also a burger restaurant that was reportedly offering tickets to Double or Nothing with every meal, but that is not believed to have been part of an official deal with AEW.

AEW Double or Nothing and their ticket situation did not go unnoticed by Pat McAfee. During his Pat McAfee show, the ESPN broadcaster spoke on the topic of images from cameras other than the hard cam showing how poorly attended some events are. McAfee joked that AEW found that out the hard way this week.

Even some fans who attended Double or Nothing caught their focus drifting from the in-ring action, in a viral video shared online, one fan could be seen watching NXT Battleground while attending Double or Nothing.
