Under Tony Khan’s stewardship, AEW has forged a significant partnership with Warner Bros Discovery for programming, marking a milestone in the promotion’s growth. Khan’s proactive approach to aligning AEW’s content with the expectations of Warner Bros Discovery has sparked speculation about a potential media rights deal between the two entities. As negotiations progress, AEW’s involvement in the upcoming Warner Bros Discovery upfronts presentation has been unveiled.

Warner Bros Discovery has proudly served as the exclusive home of All Elite Wrestling, showcasing hit shows like Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision. This partnership has been so impactful that it led to the discontinuation of AEW Dark on YouTube.

Confirming the intensity of discussions, Tony Khan hinted at the possibility of finalized deal sooner than expected. According to PWInsider, Warner Bros Discovery is slated to hold their upfronts presentation tomorrow in New York City, with AEW featured as part of the event at The Theater in Madison Square Garden.

However, it’s crucial to note that while AEW’s participation in the presentation is confirmed, there’s no official confirmation of a new media rights deal between AEW and Warner Bros Discovery as of now. Therefore, any announcements regarding such a deal at tomorrow’s event are unlikely.


Additionally, potential cost-cutting measures at Warner Bros Discovery could impact the progress of negotiations with AEW. As talks continue, the timing of an agreement between AEW and Warner Bros Discovery remains uncertain. Nonetheless, Tony Khan’s determination suggests that he will strive to secure a favorable deal for AEW in the end.
