AEW Dynamite on Thursday was the first time in five months that fans were allowed to attend a live TV taping. The promotion offered close to 600 tickets, all of which sold out in four minutes.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer is reporting that AEW plans to tape episodes of Dynamite on TNT and AEW Dark on YouTube every other week for the foreseeable future. However, there is a slight change with taping dates for early in September.
Here is the plan for the beginning of September. AEW will keep everyone in Jacksonville from the 2nd to the 9th. Dynamite will air live on September 2nd, the go-home show before AEW All Out on September 5th. Then they will be live once again on September 9th.
Per Meltzer, the feeling is that if they have everyone in town already, why not keep them for the week. Khan and company did not want to tape the post All Out show before the PPV event actually took place.
He also noted that the September 9th taping would be for shows on 9th, 16th, and 17th plus AEW Dark on those days. The 17th taping will air on TNT on September 23rd.
The taping schedule for episodes after September 17th remains to be seen, but they’ll likely go back to every other week plan till the end of the year.
All shows will still be held at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. All Elite Wrestling will continue to sell tickets for next week’s show and All Out to a limited number of fans.
