All Elite Wrestling is looking forward to next year as they have a new TV deal to secure and they are also in the midsts of locking in the company’s talents whose deals will expire and signing WWE talent that will become free agents. Since their inception back in 2019, AEW has had a meteoric rise and the company has received global recognition like no other new promotion has in quite some time, with just being in the industry for over 4 years.
Things have changed though for AEW over the past number of months as their TV ratings, attendance and other business metrics are down, with the exception of their flagship show Dynamite as the program is still pulling in strong numbers on TBS and Collision also brings in solid numbers on TNT from time to time. The company also lost two of their biggest stars to the WWE in CM Punk and Jade Cargill in just a matter of months, although Punk was released by AEW due to his physical altercation with Jack Perry at All In.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, a talent meeting that was scheduled to be held on the December 3rd episode of AEW Collision, which was planned a few days earlier, was canceled. There’s no word yet on why the meeting didn’t go through or whether the promotion plans to reschedule it, but as soon as an update is available, it will be provided.
The status of the company is not as bad as it seems and as people are making it to be because AEW was able to sign top calibre stars such as Adam Copeland and Will Ospreay to full-time contracts and they had a massive show this past August at Wembley Stadium called All In, which they will be holding once again next year.
