All Elite Wrestling has presented three PPVs in 2019, with one more PPV, AEW All Out, set to take place later this month. Following the PPV, the company will start weekly programming on TNT from October 2nd, and according to reports, the company will be airing several video packages in the lead-up to the official debut.
These video packages will be aired on TNT, and will look to introduce the company to the audiences. There could be several highlight packages, along with promos and interviews with the top stars of the company.
Along with this, the company also expects to present one more PPV this year, taking the total count of PPVs this year to five. According to Wrestler Observer Newsletter, the company has plans for only four PPVs for the calendar year 2020, similar to how NXT conducts their Takeover events.
WON also reports that AEW is currently not planning on hosting an episode on Christmas Day, which falls on Wednesday, AEW’s weekly slot on TNT. RAW and SmackDown Live have had episodes on Christmas Day in 2017 and 2018, although both the shows aired on tape delay last year.
AEW will air live on New Year’s Day in 2020, when it goes head-to-head with bowl games. The name for the weekly show is yet to be finalized, but according to certain reports, AEW Revolution looks set to be the name of the show.
AEW recently filed a trademark for ‘AEW Revolution’, but it remains to be seen what the actual name of the show would be. WWE is reportedly planning to have a 2-hour NXT show on FS1 to go head-to-head with this new AEW show.
The new show airs on October 2nd, at 8.PM on TNT, live from Capital One Arena in Washington DC. Chris Jericho and two mystery partners will take on Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks while Cody is set to take on Sammy Guevara at the show.
