AEW is set to debut a new show on TNT on Friday, August 13th at 10:00 PM. Rampage will be a new show for the company, but not much else is known about what kind of program it will be. Cody Rhodes is very confident that it will help the company.
While speaking to Comic Book, The American Nightmare brought up Rampage. Rhodes said that Rampage will have its own identity as well. He said it will help the company “considerably” as they continue their stories on Friday nights at 10:00 PM.
“I think having Rampage will help considerably. That way we can share the wealth. However, Dynamite’s a very hard show to get on. The best wrestlers in the world are on Dynamite. We have a very full locker room, and on the way to the ring, you walk by a lot of people who are on the bench that week.
“I think you’ll see a lot of that bench get unloaded for Rampage, and that’s very, very exciting. And the two shows will have their own identities surrounding the AEW championships that kind of tether us all together. But other than the logo for Rampage, the details are all still forthcoming, other than I think it will be really great for our locker room.”
AEW programming, Dynamite and Rampage, will move to TBS in 2022. This will make way for the NHL and the NBA to have more room on TNT. AEW is not leaving TNT as they will still produce four yearly supercards on the network.
The company has a lot of plans for the future. They are building new programming and continuing on with their plan. On the other hand, WWE might be setting the stage for an eventual sale. The pro wrestling world is always a very interesting place.
