AEW has a lot of programming, and Collision will offer even more action for fans. Now, we are going to look forward to a new Saturday show, but they will not have the company’s YouTube content like they used to.
AEW’s new deal with Warner Bros Discovery is an exclusive contract. That means Dark and Dark Elevation are no more. This is actually not an unpopular call within the AEW roster.
PW Insider noted that a lot of AEW talent are not going to be heartbroken to see Dark and Dark Elevation go. If anything, it will be easier for the live crowds, and might keep them hotter through the night.
It should be noted that in recent weeks, since AEW Dark and Dark – Elevation have stopped taping, Dynamite has simply had a few live matches for the arena before going live. We’ve been told that the feeling among many in the company is that the elimination of the other shows have made the tapings easier to work, have kept the crowds hotter and made producing the overall tapings much less of a weekly hardship and have allowed more focus to go onto Dynamite and Rampage.
It was also noted that, “We’ve also been told that the most recent live events in Kentucky and Virginia were seen internally by talents as some of the most fun they’ve had performing recently and that there was a completely different vibe and “lack of the same type of pressure” that normally exists for TV tapings.”
AEW has a lot of plans for the future, and although exact number from their Warner Bros Discovery deal hasn’t been revealed, it’s easy to assume that Tony Khan’s company is making a good deal of money right now. That will come with a couple of changes, but they will also enjoy Warner Bros Discovery’s tremendous platform.
