With each passing day, the ‘Wednesday Night Wars’ is coming closer, and the hype surrounding the competition is not going to die anytime soon. All Elite Wrestling begins their weekly programming in two weeks’ time on TNT, and their show is yet to get a name.
AEW’s owner Tony Khan confirmed after All Out that the AEW show on TNT will indeed have a name. It was previously reported that AEW has filed trademarks for ‘Wednesday Night Dynamite’ and ‘AEW Revolution’.
However, in a recent trademark filing which took place a week ago, AEW has filed for All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite. With just two weeks to go for the debut, this could end up being the actual show name.
AEW has already revealed the location for the first eight episodes, and the first three have already sold out. The company is looking to get off to a proper start on national television, although WWE is trying it’s best to steer ahead of any competition.
Elsewhere, AEW Executive Vice President Kenny Omega is teasing a partnership with Singapore-based MMA promotion. Omega went on a tour of Asia recently, and tweeted a photo of himself at ONE Championship offices.
Kenny Omega wrote in his tweet that the audiences will be seeing more of them in the future, which could be a possible indication of a tie-up.
However, ONE Championship is also involved with e-sports, and Omega could actually be in talks for the development of an AEW game. Omega has previously stated that he would like to see an AEW video-game, similar to the popular WWE 2K series.
Previously, Omega was credited for bringing superstars from Joshi background like Riho and Hikaru Shida. The EVP of the company is not just focusing on the wrestling aspect, and that’s good to see!
