All Elite Wrestling is making a huge move in the wrestling world. They’re expanding their programming to TBS starting in 2022. The new show titled AEW: Rampage, is set for August 13th. In addition to this, TNT is showcasing four new annual wrestling specials. AEW Dynamite is also moving to TBS starting in January 2022.
What The Officials/Executives Have To Say
But don’t fret, Dynamite will air on TNT in 2021 still. AEW: Rampage is a new hour-long program for the up and coming wrestling company. It’ll be a third hour of televised programming to showcase the talent of the company. Sam Linsky, Associate General Manager, SVP, Programming and Operations for TBS, TNT, and TruTV had this to say:
It’s a pleasure to be able to help Tony Khan expand his wrestling fiefdom across our networks and bring more content to our fans that fits the thrill ride brand of TNT and good time of TBS. It’s Wednesday. You know what that means.
Tony Khan also had this to say:
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.
Looks like AEW is making huge moves in the wrestling sphere!
