AEW is adding an hour to WarnerMedia in the form of a new show. Tony Khan wanted to make things very clear about his intentions with that extra hour of content.
While speaking to Oral Sessions with Renee Young, Tony Khan confirmed that the third hour of AEW content on WarnerMedia will not be a third hour of Dynamite. It won’t even be on Wednesday nights.
The AEW President also confirmed that they will continue to have AEW Dark as well. He doesn’t want to over-saturate any of his stars, because he wants to create more opportunities for others to gain exposure as well.
“I’m really excited about adding a third hour of television and I think that’s going to be the most important thing for us. We’ve accumulated so much talent and so much depth on the roster and being able to showcase all of our great wrestlers.”
“Yes, it will not be a third hour of Dynamite and it will not be on Wednesday; but it will be a third hour with Warner Media. It will be a third TV hour, and it will be great exposure for us.”
“We got Dark, which has been a great platform for our up and comers on YouTube and I think there are other streaming options and other shows we can do with YouTube or other streaming platforms. So there’s going to be more opportunities, there’s going to be more real estate for our wrestlers without over-saturating. I definitely don’t want to do three hours of Dynamite.”
AEW announced an expansion with WarnerMedia and that came with an additional hour-long program. Odds are they would be much further along in the process right now, but the pandemic slowed a lot of things from really getting into motion.
