It would be a step. Back in 2014, WWE changed the way the wrestling world worked by launching the WWE Network. The company was suddenly opening their video vault, allowing fans to see so much of the material they have presented over the years for a cheap price. It was an amazing thing for wrestling fans, and now the company might be getting ready to look at some competition.
During a recent edition of Ask Tony Live from Adfreeshows.com, AEW broadcaster Tony Schiavone said that he believed AEW would have its own streaming service by the end of 2022. While Schiavone acknowledged that he did not know this for a fact, he said that he believed it based on conversations he had been having with people in the company. Schiavone also said that he had heard AEW would eventually make it to HBO Max.
AEW has done a lot in its brief history. Check out some of what they have to offer:
Opinion: The more I think about this, the more of a possibility I can see it being. AEW has not been around very long, but waiting for another year or so could help build up its video library even more. At the same time though, they need to have something extra other than just a bunch of regular TV shows. The Ring of Honor video library could be a nice addition, and I’d be curious to see what they can find otherwise.
