Aew Poised to Be ‘Sports-Centric Alternative’ to WWE With WarnerMedia TV Deal

  • Variety
All Elite Wrestling (Aew) could very soon shake up the world of professional wrestling on television for the first time in years.

It was announced Wednesday that the nascent promotion has signed a deal with WarnerMedia that will see Aew air a weekly wrestling show on TNT primetime beginning later this year. This marks the first time professional wrestling has aired on TNT since the days of WCW, which was bought out by WWE in 2001 after the so-called Monday Night Wars that saw the two companies go head-to-head in the ratings.

Aew’s current talent roster is headlined by members of a group known to fans as The Elite — The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson), Kenny Omega, Cody and Brandi Rhodes, and “Hangman” Adam Page. The Young Bucks and Cody are also executive vice presidents at the company, while Brandi is also chief brand officer.
