AEW on TNT premieres Wednesday, October 2nd. The show will broadcast live each week from different cities across the United States.
The first episode of AEW on TNT takes place from Washington D.C. at the Capital One Arena. Ticket pricing and on-sale date will be announced Monday, July 29th via AEW’s social media platforms.
The AEW on TNT era beings exactly 10 weeks from today’s announcement. Coincidentally, this is the same week WWE SmackDown Live moves from USA Network to FOX.
A press release sent in by AEW includes the following details regarding the promotion’s commitment to present wrestling as a more sports-like product:
“Focused on fast-paced, high-impact competitions, AEW offers fans more athleticism along with real sports analytics. Wrestlers are also given the freedom to explore their characters and highlight their athletic abilities. Introducing statistics to wrestling for the first time ever, AEW will raise the stakes for its matches and deepen fan engagement by tracking each competitor’s wins and losses as wrestlers pursue championships. Their moves and damage to their opponents will also be analyzed on-air to provide insights into their winning streaks.”
It’s worth noting there is no mention of Wednesday Night Dynamite, the phrase AEW trademarked that many expected to be the name of their weekly show.
