Today, All Elite Wrestling announced they have officially signed a broadcast television deal with TNT.
TNT’s last broadcast of a wrestling show was March 26, 2001. That’s right, the last wrestling TNT broadcast on television was the last ever episode of WCW Monday Nitro.
AEW will be shown on TNT Drama and is set to start a weekly broadcast later on in the year.
They’ll be kicking off their year of wrestling with Double Or Nothing on May 25, which is available on Pay-Per-View. This news will certainly squash a lot of the worry surrounding the future of AEW and whether or not they were actually capable of securing a TV deal in time.
