All Elite Wrestling lastly introduced their United States tv deal yesterday, with WarnerMedia confirming their partnership with the rising promotion, and AEW themselves following up with a press release saying that TNT will air their new weekly present beginning this fall.
Particular monetary particulars are but to be revealed and we’re nonetheless to study what evening the present will air on, however TSN’s John McMullen (supported by Mat Males Professional Wrestling’s Andrew Zarian) has come via with new info.
Per McMullen, that is an “unprecedented deal for a start-up,” and an “superb deal that these in AEW are ecstatic about.” It does not embrace TV rights charges, however this was by no means on the desk. Shoddy reporting was the one cause individuals had been led to count on such a factor. It does, nevertheless, embrace manufacturing prices and a “nice promoting break up for AEW,” which will probably be important to the promotion’s progress.
Studying this, it is laborious to view the WarnerMedia deal as something aside from a large success. The rights charges challenge should not be seen as a disappointment, both: for context, it took Vince McMahon virtually 20 years earlier than he was in a position to safe them.
