The recent merger between WarnerMedia and Discovery has been seen as a huge thing for a variety of reasons. So far, WarnerMedia has been quite satisfied with AEW’s performance on TNT and TBS. Tony Schiavone also thinks the merger can lead to a streaming service.

With the inception of AEW Rampage last year, the company has more content than ever before. Due to this many fans have wondered if AEW will ever get a streaming service.

While speaking on “What Happened When…” on “”, Tony Schiavone stated that he believes the Discovery/Warner media merger will lead to AEW’s streaming service.

”From the people I’ve talked with, no. For me on the surface, yes, because I know what happened before. But I think we have a viable enough product that if Discovery says, ‘We don’t wrestling’, we could end up somewhere else,” he said.


The Khan’s are pretty plugged in. That’s what’s different about this era is that if Time Warner/Discovery doesn’t want us, we still have a business. I think there’s always some concern, but we’ve built up a very good relationship with Warner Media.”

If this merger comes, and as we’ve been reading, they’ve been clearing out a lot of people, it seems to me they are really big into streaming services. What I hope this means is that we are finally going to have a streaming service. In other words, we are finally going to have our own network where we can show our old shows.”

The relationship between AEW and WarnerMedia has been very positive so far. This is why even Matt Hardy isn’t concerned about the merger. We’ll have to see whether AEW will get its own streaming service or not.
