AEW Dynamite will be moving to TBS in January of 2022. This was an announcement that shocked the pro wrestling world. In addition to that, AEW: Rampage and four annual specials were also confirmed as part of the new deal.
The new AEW: Rampage show will premiere Friday, August 13 at 10 pm ET on TNT, and will move to TBS in 2022 when AEW Dynamite also moves to TBS. Now it seems more details regarding AEW: Rampage have been revealed.
While speaking to PWInsider, Tony Khan talked about AEW: Rampage and confirmed that Rampage premiere will be live and that there will be special go-home editions of the show before future AEW pay-per-views.
“We can take advantage of it and give them Dynamite and Rampage. There’s also going to be times where we’re going to do a lot of live Rampages. We’re going to have a live debut. We’re going to do some great live episodes. The go-home will be live for All Out at the Sears Center, and also we’ll be live for the go-home in St. Louis and it’ll be great. We’ll also be… so it’ll be Rampage. It’ll be really, really special for us. I think it will be, sometimes we’ll do it after Dynamite. We’ll do Dynamite, then we’ll do Rampage. Sometimes if Rampage is not live, then that’ll be one taping.”
With AEW going through several changes as of late, we certainly wonder just how successful AEW: Rampage will be and if it will improve the overall quality of the product.
