In a shocking twist that could send shockwaves through the wrestling world, it seems like Warner Bros Discovery might be considering swapping out AEW for WWE RAW! The battle for TV supremacy just got hotter than a steel cage match on a summer day.
Warner Bros Discovery has been the proud home of AEW, showcasing their hit shows Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision. They even had an exclusive deal with Tony Khan’s wrestling empire that led to the demise of AEW Dark on YouTube. But hold onto your championship belts, because rumors started swirling that Warner Bros Discovery might be eyeing a fling with WWE RAW. Say it ain’t so!
WWE has already dropped the bomb that SmackDown is making a move to the USA Network in 2024. That’s a game-changer, and it’s got everyone wondering if RAW is going to pack up its gear and leave its longtime home on the USA Network in search of greener pastures.
And who’s the mastermind behind this potential switcheroo? None other than the legendary CM Punk, who’s apparently been pulling strings behind the scenes to get WWE meeting with Warner Bros Discovery. Dave Meltzer spilled the beans on Wrestling Observer Radio, and even PWInsider chimed in, saying WWE’s top brass recently had a sit-down with the bigwigs at Warner Bros Discovery. It’s like a wrestling soap opera!
Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling dropped another bombshell, suggesting that WWE RAW could end up on TNT or TBS while AEW takes ride on the Discovery channel. But when AEW’s top brass were asked about it, they acted like they hadn’t heard a peep about it. Talk about a plot twist!
Now, the word on the street is that AEW might be in danger of losing its cozy spot on TNT or TBS. Is it all just rumors and hearsay, or could WWE really be eyeing AEW’s TV turf? Two AEW insiders we spoke to seemed just as puzzled as the rest of us. As one of them put it, “Only person who really knows is Zaslav.” It’s like a backstage mystery waiting to be unraveled.
”Lastly, the vibe we have been given is that AEW is in danger of not being renewed by WBD for TNT or TBS. One scenario that was given to us was that WWE Raw would move to TNT or TBS, and AEW would be moved to Discovery. Two higher-up sources in AEW that I spoke with said that was news to them and not something they had heard. Another said, “Only person who really knows is Zaslav.”
Tony Khan even hinted at meeting with Warner Bros Discovery during a recent media call. But folks, it’s a nail-biter, and only time will tell if AEW can hold onto their TV partnership with Warner Bros Discovery. This rivalry is far from over!
So, wrestling fans, what’s your take on this blockbuster news? Do you think Monday Night RAW is about to invade AEW’s turf, or is this just another chapter in the ongoing battle for TV supremacy? Grab your popcorn, because the wrestling world is about to get even more electrifying!
