All Elite Wrestling will begin their highly-anticipated weekly programming episode on October 2, and there has been great hype revolving the show’s debut. AEW will be the return of professional wrestling on TNT, which previously hosted World Championship Wrestling in the 90s.
It was confirmed by AEW owner Tony Khan that AEW show will definitely have a name on television, and won’t be simply referred to as ‘All Elite Wrestling’.
There were rumors of Wednesday Night Dynamite and AEW: Revolution circling around in recent weeks, and it was reported yesterday that AEW has filed the latest trademark for ‘All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite‘.
According to the TV schedule for October first week, All Elite Wrestling’s show is listed as All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite which will air during the 8-10 PM slot.
The first episode is already stacked with several matches and segments already announced for the debut on TNT. Chris Jericho will take on Kenny Omega and Young Bucks, along with two mystery partners. The first AEW Women’s Champion will be crowned when Riho takes on Nyla Rose.
AEW Dynamite will go head-to-head with WWE NXT on Wednesday nights from October 2, while NXT aired its first episode this week.
All Elite Wrestling also announced the bracket for the Tag-Team Tournament which will begin on the second episode of AEW. The Dark Order has received a bye in the first round courtesy of their victory over Best Friends at AEW All Out last month.
The tournament features a total of seven teams, and the new additions to the AEW division, LAX, are missing from the tournament. The tag-team division of AEW has received great praise for their performance across all the four PPVs until now.
The Tag-Team tourney will surely be an interesting journey, as several tag-teams are viable options for winning the championship.
