All Elite Wrestling has been running their shows on the Warner Bros. Discovery network for quite some time now and the company usually gets the #1 spot among all the other programs on Wednesday nights in the key demographics, but there have been a number of reports in regards to Warner Bros. cost cutting across their entire network and it has raised some questions on what this could mean for AEW.
Warner Bros. Discovery US Networks Group Chair and Chief Content Officer Kathleen Finch recently took part in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and spoke about the future of AEW with their network and how happy they are with the huge numbers All Elite Wrestling is pulling in. Finch also noted that they are working with the wrestling team to figure out what new content they can air that is not in a wrestling ring.
This is what Kathleen Finch said:
“We really play in the sports space. One of the things that we’re doing around sports is creating shoulder programming to hold onto those fans. AEW [All Elite Wrestling] pulls huge numbers, so we are working with the wrestling team to figure out what new kind of content can we build that’s not in a wrestling ring.”
AEW seems to have a great working relationship with Warner Bros. Discovery, but their current deal is almost up and it remains to be seen what figures All Elite Wrestling will receive once they negotiate a new deal.
