All Elite Wrestling is hoping to make their final episode of Dynamite on TNT special. The company will be moving to sister station TBS the following week. Rampage will stay on TNT, but the promotion’s flagship show will soon have a new home.
AEW is also building up to their January 8th TNT Battle of the Belts event. The show will echo the old Clash of the Champions shows that WCW used to produce. Fans in Charlotte are expecting an action-packed hour.
On the most recent Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about what the company was planning for the December 29th Dynamite. AEW returns to their pandemic home at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida for New Year’s Smash. Jim Ross will rejoin the broadcast booth during the huge event. It is expected that they will run some big angles to set up for the TBS debut and Battle of the Belts.
“I think that there’s going to be some big angles on Wednesday, because there almost has to be. Because they really have to load up the next show for TBS and they also have to… I think that this week they have to give you the other match for the… Battle of the Belts and set stuff up afterwards as well. They have to do more stuff with Danielson and Adam Page.”
Tony Khan has never been shy about giving away big matches and angles on free television. The AEW World Title was recently defended by Hangman Page against Bryan Danielson in an epic 60-minute time limit draw. Their rematch has people buzzing.
AEW doesn’t run monthly pay-per-views like WWE. Their next is March 4th in Orlando with Revolution. Between now and then, fans can expect some major angles and matches to play out on AEW television. Tony Khan has proven that you never know who or what you might see.
