Ever since its inception back on January 1st, 2019, All Elite Wrestling has really been making a name in the pro wrestling industry and they have been garnering global recognition and major successes all around the world and they have even been reaching worldwide audiences and markets. With the promotion having surpassed 4 years in the industry, they have become a world-wide recognized company and is the second biggest wrestling company in the world, next to the WWE.
One of the biggest achievements AEW has had since the promotion was launched back in 2019 is securing a television deal with WarnerMedia to air their flagship show Dynamite every Wednesday night. AEW has since created Rampage, which airs every Friday night and they even moved their flagship show Dynamite from TNT to TBS, while their Rampage show has remained on TNT. AEW will see their television deal and media rights with WarnerMedia expire in 2024 and they’re going to begin talks soon in order to secure a lucrative deal.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan recently had a conversation with Uproxx Sports, where Khan noted that he expects a big increase in the rights of their programming and AEW is in a good pace to make a very lucrative deal for the company’s media rights going forward.
This is what Tony Khan said:
“I expect big increases in the rights for the AEW programs, and we’re on a good pace to make a very lucrative deal for the AEW media rights going forward.”
As previously reported, All Elite Wrestling is considering starting their own streaming service, most likely with their broadcast partner, Warner Bros. Discovery Inc., but Dave Meltzer stated on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the company is not close in securing a streaming deal any time soon and even though it has been talked about for over a year now and they do want one, it is something that is not on the horizon right now.
