AEW is going to be on TNT. No official start date has been announced quite yet, but it is coming “later this year.” It is very exciting news, but we don’t even know what their show will be called yet. We also have no idea what day of the week it will be on.
Bryan Alvarez addressed this topic on Wrestling Observer Live where he said that WWE actually seems to think that the show will be on Tuesday nights. This could also be a reason why AEW registered the Tuesday Night Dynamite name.
“I got something on that. So WWE for whatever it’s worth thinks the show is going to be on Tuesday. Now before this deal [with TNT & AEW] the word that Dave [Meltzer] and others had gotten was that it was not going to be on Tuesday, but for whatever reason All Elite continued trademarking Tuesday Night Dynamite so they’re either going to be on Tuesday or I guess it’s possible that maybe they’d be on a Wednesday and the idea of Tuesday Night Dynamite is some kind of online show preview or something like that that may lead into the Wednesday show, but they want Tuesday Night Dynamite.”
“It’s going to be used for something. We don’t know if it’s going to be the television show yet, we don’t know what it’s going to be, but I don’t know how WWE would know, but they believe the show’s going to be on Tuesday so we will know soon enough.”
WWE is leaving Tuesday nights for SmackDown Live. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if they do something else on Tuesday to make up for it. They could certainly afford to put whatever they wanted on the WWE Network. It still might open up a space for AEW because SmackDown Live is going to Fridays on Fox.
We will have to wait and see, but Tuesday Night Dynamite is going to be something that AEW uses. They could do a YouTube show or whatever they want with the name, but Tuesday Night Dynamite on TNT has a very catchy ring to it.
