WarnerMedia today announced that it will broadcast All Elite Wrestling starting later this year on TNT. The show will be airing live every week in prime time as well as streaming on B/R Live.
No exact date was given as to when AEW’s weekly shows will start.
“All Elite Wrestling is a talent-forward, fan-first league whose inclusive approach to creating high-quality athletic wrestling competitions is already making waves with fans and attracting top-tier wrestlers,” said Michael Quigley, EVP of Commercial Operations, Content Strategy, and Monetization for TBS and TNT. “It is high-adrenaline, gripping entertainment and we can’t wait to bring it to fans everywhere with this game-changing new business.”
Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW added, “Wrestling fans have wanted – and needed – something different, authentic, and better for far too long. It is about a movement fueled by wrestling fans who have been undeserved and perhaps even disappointed by what the industry has produced in recent years.”
This is the first time in 20 years that TNT will be broadcasting professional wrestling on their network. TNT is the former home of WCW Nitro.
