AEW Dynamite will be moving from TNT to TBS in January 2022.
The news was initially reported by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select and subsequently confirmed by both Tony Khan on Busted Open Radio and Turner Media (The owners of TNT and TBS) via press release.
Not only that, but a new one hour, weekly AEW show, Rampage, will debut on TNT on Friday August 13th.
Finally, it has also been confirmed that AEW will produce four annual specials to air on TNT in the vein of Saturday Night’s Main Event or their own Fight For The Fallen type events.
Khan had the following to say about the announcement:
“As a lifelong wrestling aficionado who is privileged to present AEW to longtime and new fans alike, it means a lot to me – personally and professionally – to share the news that All Elite Wrestling will call TBS home beginning in 2022.
“The history of wrestling in the United States cannot be told without acknowledging the contributions of TBS, which as WTBS years ago delivered wrestling to the Southeast and eventually to a massive national audience. TBS has the same passion for wrestling today, but will offer AEW and our fans more prime time programming, content and global opportunities that will establish TBS as the world’s undisputed destination for wrestling.”
AEW officials have long talked up the second weekly show so this comes as little surprise. The move to TBS was also not unexpected after Turner snared the rights for NHL ice hockey last month for games that will air on TNT on Wednesdays.
