AEW has had a few major complaints from fans since the outset of the company in 2019. One of the most frequent is the lack of women’s matches on Dynamite and Rampage. Typically, the women’s roster is limited to one match per show. Many have also noted that they’d like to see a broader array of talent featured.
That could be changing soon. Mike Johnson of PW Insider has reported that AEW recently filed a trademark for “All Elite Women.” Nothing is confirmed, but it appears to be the basis for a new TV or streaming show.
According to the filing, one of the uses for the “All Elite Women” trademark is for the creation, development, and production of television programming. For those who have been hoping Tony Khan will start to feature more female talent, this could be the ticket. The description reads as follows:
“Entertainment services in the nature of creation, development, and production of television programming; Entertainment services in the nature of professional athletes competing in wrestling; Fan clubs; Music production services; On-line journals, namely, blogs featuring sports and entertainment; Publishing of electronic publications; Television show production; Educational and entertainment services, namely, a continuing program about wrestling accessible by radio, television, satellite, audio, video and computer networks; Entertainment in the nature of live performances by professional wrestlers; Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Entertainment services, namely, providing temporary use of non-downloadable video games; Entertainment, namely, a continuing wrestling show broadcast over television, satellite, audio, and video media; Providing entertainment news and information specifically in the field of sport and entertainment via a website; Providing online music, not downloadable; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing a website featuring non-downloadable publications in the nature of electronic books, magazines, newsletters, journals, periodicals, articles, brochures, and on-line journals in the field of sports and entertainment; Providing an Internet website portal in the field of entertainment, cultural and sporting events”
“Retail store services featuring a wide variety of sports and entertainment merchandise; Advertising and promotional services; On-line retail store services featuring a wide variety of sports and entertainment merchandise; Organizing exhibitions for wrestling events; Promotional sponsorship of professional wrestling events”

There is no word on where such a show could find a home. Currently, AEW has two YouTube shows, ‘Dark’ and ‘Dark Elevation.’ Depending on whether Tony Khan can land a TV deal, they could be joined by this new women’s wrestling program.
