AEW and TNT confirm ‘big news’ is coming tomorrow

Yesterday (July 22), All Elite and TNT were directing everyone toward news social media accounts dedicated to the fledgling wrestling company’s upcoming show on the cable network. President Tony Khan’s mentioned that AEW is “thrilled that we’re bringing wrestling back to TNT!” Executive Vice-Presidents Matt & Nick Jackson promised a “big announcement”, and Cody Rhodes broke out an American flag GIF.

Not sure what Cody’s getting at, exactly, but the AEW on TNT account itself got specific about one thing - the news is coming tomorrow, Weds., July 24:

The expectation is this will be the reveal of the day of the week and time slot for AEW’s weekly TV show, along with a premiere date. It’s believed the show will air Wednesdays, since TNT often has NBA on Tuesday & Thursdays, and probably run from 8 - 10 PM eastern, and some reports believe it will start on Oct. 2.

We may also get it’s official name. After that, AEW can start booking venues for the live broadcasts, and we can start getting excited... and await WWE’s response.

Stay tuned.
