AEW Expected To Add Third Weekly TV Show
There is going to be even more AEW content on television, according to a new report.
All Elite Wrestling currently has two weekly TV shows. Their first TV show Dynamite airs Wednesday nights on TBS at 8pm ET/7pm CT for two hours live every week. Rampage is on Friday nights at 10pm ET/9pm CT usually a taped show (they tape it after Dynamite), but sometimes is live.
It has been reported by Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men radio show on Youtube that AEW and Warner Bros Discovery (the company that owns TBS & TNT) are closing in on a deal to add a third TV show to the weekly schedule. The new show announcement is expected to happen within the next month.
The likely timeslot for this new AEW show is on TBS on Saturdays at 6:05 PM ET, which is the timeslot of the old WCW Saturday Night TV show that aired in the 1980s and 1990s. However, Zarian was not able to confirm that.
It was reported by Fightful Select that top AEW talent hasn’t been briefed on if the show will happen. Fightful also mentioned Saturday night timeslot is a “popular rumor” right now.
A new AEW show called All Access will premiere on TBS after Dynamite on March 29th.
Following the AEW Revolution pay-per-view last weekend, AEW’s Owner & General Manager Tony Khan spoke about how he would like to have more television content.
“We absolutely have the capacity to do more and more TV if that opportunity presented itself and I think there is demand for it. I do think we definitely could, if called upon, we could definitely present more quality television with the roster we’re building.”
Tony Khan likely knew the deal was coming, or it was agreed upon, so he was likely hinting at it there. Tony also tweeted on March 3rd that AEW had more “major announcements” coming soon, which certainly could be another TV show.
If this new show airs on Saturdays then AEW’s weekly schedule, including YouTube shows, would look like this.
Monday – Darkon YouTube.
Tuesday – Dark Elevationon YouTube
Wednesday – Dynamiteon TBS followed by All Access starting March 29th.
Friday – Rampage on TNT.
Saturday – New show on TBS.
There should be further updates on this story in the days and weeks ahead.
