AEW confirms TV deal with Turner Network

WarnerMedia, which already mixes a healthy amount of sports with its programming, is adding wrestling to the mix through a new partnership with All Elite Wrestling.

The premiere date and time slot for the show have not been announced, but according to the official press release AEW will air in prime-time on TNT. "AEW is answering that call". The new promotion is making huge waves, as AEW has been signing a ton of wrestling talent. "It's about a movement fueled by wrestling fans who have been underserved and perhaps even disappointed by what the industry has produced in recent years".

TNT, originally shorthand for Turner Network Television, was of course home to WCW Monday Nitro from 1995 until 2001 when World Championship Wrestling was bought out by Vince McMahon's WWE.

All Elite Wrestling is drumming up a lot of news right now and fans were awaiting a television announcement. "It is high-adrenaline, gripping entertainment and we can't wait to bring it to fans everywhere with this game-changing new business". The first such event will be Double or Nothing on Saturday, May 25 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The press release also noted that AEW would be incorporating statistics into a wrestling show for the first time ever.

AEW was started up in January by President and CEO, Tony Khan and members of "The Elite" Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson).

What do you think of the AEW and TNT deal? "Wrestlers will also be given more freedom to explore their characters and highlight their athletic abilities". "With WarneMedia, AEW is poised globally to redefine wrestling as we know it today". In addition, Double or Nothing's hour-long live pre-show will stream on WarnerMedia and AEW's social media channels. It comes at a time when WWE is moving its Tuesday "SmackDown Live" show to Friday's on Fox starting Oct 4. while keeping "Monday Night Raw" on United States of America as part of television deals worth a combined $2.35 billion over the next five years. However, WWE will be replacing its Tuesday offerings with a studio show that will air on FS1 that night.
