Cody Rhodes has cleared up the speculation that AEW could extend Dynamite into a three-hour show.
AEW currently airs Dynamite, its flagship two-hour program, and AEW Dark, a one-hour show that is broadcasted on YouTube, with the idea of potentially adding additional programming.
The speculation started earlier this week when Rhodes did an interview with ESPN where he noted that AEW was weeks away from announcing more details on another one-hour program.
Here is an excerpt from the interview where he talked about the timeline on when an announcement could be made and their plans for the new show:
“I think probably in four to six weeks I’ll have a firmer answer on that. That’s still very much the case. The format of that show might be different. It might rely on the production we have in place already, it might not. I know we’ve got all kinds of different plans converging on what we want. The goal of what the third hour would be is to showcase a different crop of talent from AEW.”
As noted, recently before this interview, AEW President Tony Khan discussed having a new show that is a one-hour format while appearing on Eric Bischoff’s “83 Weeks” podcast.
Rhodes addressed the speculation of Dynamite being extended by writing the following on Twitter, “??? No. It’s not.”
