The two companies said they are forming the first new wrestling circuit to launch in the past 20 years, with primetime broadcasts planned on TNT, streaming via Bleacher Report's B/R Live as well as select pay-per-view slots.

Both parties issued a joint press release heralding the union, hours ahead of WarnerMedia's advertiser upfronts in New York City.

Rumors of a deal between AEW and WarnerMedia have been making the rounds for weeks now, and today it was officially announced that a weekly AEW show will air on TNT later this year. "AEW is answering that call".

WWE Co-President George Barrios recently commented on whether WWE considers All Elite Wrestling (AEW) to be competition. The event can be seen in the United Kingdom on ITV. 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.

All Elite Wrestling is drumming up a lot of news right now and fans were awaiting a television announcement.

ITV cancels The Jeremy Kyle Show
That evidence, and the fact that ITV is plastered across front pages once again, will have weighed heavily on the board's mind. Lie detectors were a regular fixture on the programme, which often featured disputes between partners and family members.

AEW was started up in January by President and CEO, Tony Khan and members of "The Elite" Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson).

WarnerMedia and AEW's deal will only add to the increasing visibility of wrestling on television and streaming platforms. WarnerMedia and AEW together will build this powerhouse sporting league from the ground up and will begin airing weekly matches later this year.

That scheduling change for WWE SmackDown opens Tuesday night to a potential AEW show as it would not be ideal for it to go head-to-head with a main WWE program.

Financial details deal were not disclosed as AEW is not a publicly traded company.

The nascent promotion announced that the veteran official, best known for his lengthy tenure with WWE, has put pen to paper to count to three in AEW rings via their official Twitter account. "Other innovations include "introducing statistics to wrestling for the first time ever", such as ". tracking each competitor's wins and losses as the wrestlers pursue championships, analyzing their moves, assessing damage to their opponents, and providing insights into their winning streaks".
