AEW, led by Tony Khan, has forged a significant partnership with Warner Bros Discovery for programming. Khan has been proactive in ensuring that AEW’s content aligns with Warner Bros Discovery’s expectations, leading to speculation about a potential media rights deal between the two entities.

Warner Bros Discovery has proudly served as the home of All Elite Wrestling, airing popular shows such as Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision. The exclusive partnership between AEW and Warner Bros Discovery has been so significant that it led to the discontinuation of AEW Dark on YouTube.

Tony Khan previously confirmed the status of AEW’s deal with Warner Bros Discovery. According to Dave Meltzer in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, serious negotiations have commenced between the NBA and Warner Bros Discovery for a new TV package.

Sources cited by Sports Business Journal suggest that the parties are approximately 75 percent in agreement. It’s widely believed that negotiations between Warner Bros Discovery and All Elite Wrestling will occur after the NBA deal, which is considered a higher priority, is finalized.
