TNT Confirms Talks Over Possible AEW Studio Show

TNT general manager Bob Weitz has confirmed that talks are underway as it relates to the possibility of a studio show for All Elite Wrestling.

The startup company is set to debut their TV campaign on the network early next month and, with WWE poised to deliver a studio show on Fox Sports 1 given SmackDown's move, AEW could add to their newly-branded AEW Dynamite with one of their own.

Weitz told The Wrap that the possibility is being discussed, suggesting that it's most likely to air on B/R Live.

“We are talking about it,” he told the publication. “I don’t know if you’ve met Tony Khan, but he’s not short of ideas — or passion. So there is a world where we’re thinking about ‘Where does something like that live?’ Knowing full well that within the WarnerMedia ecosystem we have B/R Live, we’ve got all these different components at our disposal.

“The more content for these fans the better, and we would love to figure out what something like that looks like."

WWE, meanwhile, hasn't yet announced a date for its FS1 studio show but, per The Big Lead, the company's going with the title "WWE Backstage" for what will be a November 5 debut.

That has yet to be confirmed and, at the time of writing, The Wrap hadn't heard back from WWE following a request for comment on The Big Lead's story.

AEW Could Have A Lot More In The Works

AEW is keen on adding a third hour of programming on Turner network, as has been revealed by Cody Rhodes. It's been assumed that the former WWE man was referring to in-ring action but that might not be the case, especially now that there are discussions currently ongoing over a studio show.

AEW: Dynamite will launch on TNT on October 2 and will go head to head with NXT, which has been moved to USA Network and debuted on there last Wednesday.
