All Elite Wrestling (AEW) will officially premier it’s weekly program on TNT on October 2nd, 2019.
The date is interesting as the premier is scheduled to take place on the same week of WWE SmackDown Live’s move from USA Network to FOX.
“Focused on fast-paced, high-impact competitions, AEW offers fans more athleticism along with real sports analytics” AEW said in a press release. “Wrestlers are also given freedom to explore their characters and highlight their athletic abilities. Introducing statistics to wrestling for the first time ever, AEW will raise the stakes for its matches and deepen fan engagement by tracking each competitor’s wins and losses as wrestlers pursue championships. Their moves and damage to their opponents will also be analyzed on-air to provide insights into their winning streaks.”
There has been rumors that the show will be called ‘Wednesday Night Dynamite’, but AEW has not mentioned a name of the show as of this time.
