AEW is getting back on the road in July. They have a few dates announced so far, but many more are coming. They are also going to alter how they take television prior to pay-per-view events.
We previously reported that Full Gear is slated to take place on Saturday, November 6th. The company has an event in St. Louis on the day prior to that event.
It was noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that AEW is going to shake-up their television taping schedule. They will tape television on Fridays prior to pay-per-view events now. It was noted that this plan could start in November.
The notable thing is the St. Louis show is on a Friday night. What we’ve been told is that the plan, which may start in St. Louis, is that AEW will do television tapings on Friday nights prior to PPV shows. There will be a live show on 11/3 as well that week and most weeks it will be just Wednesday night shows.
We will have to see when AEW starts taping on Fridays prior to their pay-per-view events. Their usual night of the week is Wednesdays, but airing a show on the day prior to the pay-per-view could certainly help them keep momentum before quarterly events.
