AEW Officially Announces Weekly Television Show On TNT Beginning October 2nd



All Elite Wrestling has taken the world by storm over the past few months, ever since the company announced their arrival with Double or Nothing back in June. It has been known since then that the promotion has been looking for a weekly prime time TV slot and were handed it by TNT a few months ago with the promise that episodes would air in the fall.

AEW officially announced today that their shows will begin airing on TNT on Wednesday, October 2nd, which is just two days before SmackDown officially makes their switch over to FOX.

The official announcement was made per a recent press release:

“WarnerMedia announced today that the new professional wrestling league All Elite Wrestling (AEW) will begin airing its two-hour weekly matches on TNT on Wednesday, Oct. 2, from 8 p.m. ET to 10 p.m. ET. The highly-anticipated, action-packed matches will take place in different cities across the nation each week on Wednesdays, starting in Washington, D.C., at the famed Capital One Arena. Ticket pricing and on-sale date for the televised live event will be announced on Monday, July 29, at 12 p.m. ET via AEW’s social media platforms.”

AEW’s debut on prime time TV is expected to attract around half a million viewers which is significantly lower than WWE’s average two million audience but shows promise for the company which is starting to build up a loyal fanbase.

The constant shots being fired between WWE and AEW are expected to continue since it’s hard to imagine that it’s a coincidence that this switch has happened in the same week that SmackDown makes their huge move over to FOX with Eric Bischoff at the helm. That being said, the wrestling war is now definitely upon us and it could start to get quite interesting in October.
