All Elite Wrestling’s television deal will be announced next week, according to a report by The Wrap.
The story notes that the AEW-Turner deal is “virtually done” and the plan is to announce the TV deal an hour before WarnerMedia’s Upfront presentation on Wednesday.
AEW President Tony Khan will be joined by wrestlers in Madison Square Garden to pitch to advertisers. The presentation begins at 10 am eastern and we’ll have coverage here on WrestlingNews.co.
Turner’s plan is to start airing the weekly AEW show this fall on TNT. It’s worth noting that AEW has registered the Tuesday Night Dynamite trademark so that might be an indication of the night for the show. We’ve also heard that the show would run for two hours and it would be live every week.
This obviously changes the entire wrestling landscape as WWE have real competition for the first time since WCW was sold in 2001.
