While All Elite Wrestling nailed a big broadcast partner in the United States, it’s still missing a very important TV partner in what could be their second-largest market: the United Kingdom.
While previous AEW shows have been picked up by ITV Box Office, the network has not yet confirmed that it will be the new home of AEW in the UK despite rumors earlier in the week suggesting that the show will air on ITV4.
Alex McCarthy from TalkSPORT discussed the TV situation with AEW Executive Vice Presidents The Young Bucks, but the two remained tight lipped on the negotiations.
“I wish I could shout what I know from the rooftops,” Matt Jackson said, with his brother Nick not promising that everything will be sorted by the time the first episode airs on October 2. “I don’t want to say yes and then it’s not,” Nick said.
When asked if AEW Dynamite will be live and other specific details concerning the UK market, both refrained from commenting due to the ongoing negotiations although they did make note that the UK is a “very valuable market” and are doing their utmost to seal the deal soon.
