Here’s how much money AEW received from WarnerMedia in 2020

Tony Khan took a chance when wanting to launch a pro wrestling company, All Elite Wrestling, and his father, Shahid, took a bigger chance by backing the company with an investment.

The bet paid off after the promotion launched in 2019 and got a TV deal with TNT. The company is still growing its live event attendance, TV ratings, and pay-per-view buys.

Hank Tucker of Forbes has an article about AEW and it noted the promotion got $43.75 million from WarnerMedia in 2020. It was added the company is still in the red for now as they’ve invested eight-figures into the video game department.

AEW has released its casino mobile game while also working on Elite GM, another mobile game, and a major console game.  All Elite Wrestling inked a $175 million extension with WarnerMedia in January 2020, which will last through 2023.

It was announced a few months ago that AEW will premiere its new weekly show, Rampage, in August 2021 at 10 p.m. ET on TNT. Starting in 2022, both Dynamite and Rampage will move to TBS.

Dynamite has been airing on Fridays at 10 p.m. ET as of late due to the NBA Playoffs and its ratings have taken a hit as a result as the show normally airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.

Starting next month, Dynamite will not only return to its normal timeslot, but also resume live event touring.
