WarnerMedia announced today that the new professional wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) will begin airing its two-hour weekly programme on TNT on Wednesday 2nd October from 8pm ET to 10pm ET.
The show will take place in different cities across America each week on Wednesdays, starting in Washington, DC, at the famed Capital One Arena.
AEW features a world-class roster of diverse male and female wrestlers, giving fans a new wrestling experience for the first time in 20 years.
Founded by President and CEO Tony Khan, AEW is headlined by Cody & Brandi Rhodes, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson), Kenny Omega, Hangman Adam Page, Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley.
The roster is also filled with incredibly skilled competitors including Nyla Rose, Awesome Kong, Dustin Rhodes, Jungle Boy, Dr. Britt Baker, MJF and SCU.
In addition to being in-ring talent, Cody, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega also serve as EVPs with Brandi Rhodes serving as Chief Brand Officer. Renowned commentator Jim Ross has also joined AEW.
There is no word on where AEW’s weekly TV programme will air in the UK, but it is expected that ITV will broadcast the show live from October.
ITV showed ‘Double or Nothing’ on ITV Box Office back in May, and was a partner in bringing UK viewers Fyter Fight and Fight for the Fallen.
