AEW confirms TV deal with Turner Network

Pro Wrestling Crate by Pro Wrestling Tees

However so far the company hadn't announced anything officially so the fans were still skeptical about these "game-changing" TV deals of the promotion.

"Wrestling fans have wanted - and needed - something different, authentic and better for far too long", said Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW.

Both parties issued a joint press release heralding the union, hours ahead of WarnerMedia's advertiser upfronts in New York City. The show will begin airing on an unspecified date "later this year".

Eschewing what it called the "scripted, soapy drama" of other wrestling on the air (read: the WWE), All Elite is promising "fast-paced, high-impact competitions" with "more athleticism and real sports analytics".

Apple releases iOS 12.3 with redesigned TV app
The new app is available with the iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 releases and will be available on Mac this fall. Currently, the premium cable network's HBO Go and HBO Now platforms do not have this feature.

Also noted in the release is that Bleacher Report Live will be the official digital streaming partner in the United States for Double or Nothing on May 25, to go along with traditional pay-per-view. "With WarneMedia, AEW is poised globally to redefine wrestling as we know it today".

WarnerMedia and All Elite said their partnership would showcase a "diverse" roster of wrestlers, including members of a group tagged "The Elite", including The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson), Codi and Brandi Rhodes, Kennu Omega and Hangman Page. The show, which had always been WWE's second behind Raw, will move from Tuesday to Friday nights and continue airing live in a two-hour window from 8-10 p.m. ET. World Championship Wrestling was the last wrestling on TNT, and it disappeared when the company was sold to WWE in 2001.

I believe AEW still needs more star power to draw an audience in prime time on TNT.

The move, which brings AEW to the former home of WCW, was announced by TNT's Twitter account with a quote hearkening back to Ted Turner infamously telling investors he was "getting into the wrasslin' business".
