Mix it up a little. AEW has come a long way in their two and a half years of existence and that seems like something that is going to continue. Things got even bigger with the addition of Rampage earlier this month. However, the promotion has two other weekly shows which don’t get the same attention. It turns out that one of those shows is about to get a pretty big shakeup.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW will be taping Dark in a studio more often than not going forward. Rampage will be taped on Wednesday nights after Dynamite, with Dark: Elevation being taped before the weekly Dynamite broadcast. According to Dave Meltzer, Dark will be taped at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, which served as Impact Wrestling’s Impact Zone for years.

The shows are worth seeing. Check out a bit of all three shows taped elsewhere:

CM Punk Makes his Dynamite Debut, Listen to What he had to Say! | AEW Dynamite, 8/25/21

What Brought NBA Champion & MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to His Feet? | AEW Rampage, 8/27/21

Death Triangle vs Dark Order in the Main Event + TH2, Orange Cassidy & More | AEW Elevation, Ep 25

Opinion: This makes a lot of sense when you think about it, as you don’t want your fans getting tired or bored and leaving them dead at the end of the night. Having three shows is enough, so why tack on an unnecessary fourth in one night? Let one of them be siphoned off and see what you can do with the rest of them. This is a smart move and hopefully it plays out as AEW is hoping it will.

What do you think of the change? What is AEW’s best weekly show? Let us know in the comments below.
