All Elite Wrestling may have finally found a home for its growing library of streaming content. As anticipated by many, Tony Khan has struck a deal with WarnerMedia to provide content for the HBO Max streaming service. WarnerMedia is the parent company of TBS and TNT, which air AEW programming on traditional cable.
Andrew Zarian reported the news via Twitter. It is believed that a deal has been struck to bring All Elite Wrestling to the HBO Max streaming service. In addition, AEW has secured access to an “International pro wrestling promotion’s catalog.” That promotion has not been named.

Wrestling fans have been waiting for this announcement for quite a while. Tony Khan could not be more thrilled to have landed a streaming deal on such a prominent service. As of January, HBO Max had a reach of approximately 46.8 million subscribers in the United States. It is a massive deal for the promotion and its fans alike.
