AEW Worlds End is going down on December 30th, and fans can’t wait to see how Tony Khan books that event. Another big question for AEW concerning their ongoing television deal.
Warner Bros Discovery has been a fine home for AEW, but things have changed greatly within WBD since AEW inked their deal in 2019. Now, it appears that they could be on their way out, as WWE RAW is now on WBD’s radar.
During the press conference before Worlds End, Tony Khan was asked about AEW’s long-term deal with Warner Bros Discovery. The question specifically asked if he has any backup plan in case they don’t want to extend their deal.
Tony Khan addressed AEW’s partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery, emphasizing their strong five-year relationship. He expressed excitement about the upcoming year and hinted at discussions regarding AEW’s television rights beyond the current agreement.
While acknowledging growing interest from external parties like Ring of Honor, Tony Khan also noted their commitment to WBD. He suggested potential suitors for AEW, with more clarity expected as the year progresses, emphasizing that a substantial offer would be needed to consider other options.
We will have to see what happens next. This is a very interesting situation with AEW’s next television contract. Keep checking back with us here at Ringside News for more.
