All Elite Wrestling is reportedly “virtually done” making a deal with Turner to air their weekly television show on TNT in the fall.
According to The Wrap, current plans call for select members of the press to make the announcement one hour ahead of next week’s WarnerMedia upfront event. The arrangement made between the parties allegedly calls for a group of reporters to be informed of the deal on an embargoed basis the night before.
AEW President Tony Khan and a group of wrestlers are expected to be in attendance at the pitch to media buyers. The event is taking place at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday at 10 am ET.
The Wrap’s report says current plans call for the AEW TV show to begin on TNT in the fall. As you may recall, Jim Ross previously stated the show would be two hours long.
