Double the fun. One of the biggest things that fans tend to forget about AEW is how new they are. In May, the company celebrated the one year anniversary of its first show. To have come as far as they have in such a short amount of time is very impressive and hopefully they can continue to reach new milestones. They might be seeing another one in the near future.
One of the biggest things that AEW has going for it is the weekly Dynamite series. AEW tends to focus more on television than on pay per view so it can be several months before they have their next pay per view. Therefore, television matters more than almost anything else to them, so maybe adding something new is a good thing. At the same time it might not be, but we might be finding out sooner or later.
According to Wrestling Observer Live, AEW Dark is likely coming to TNT at some point in the future. This comes as AEW is making Dark into a more important show, including having World Champion Jon Moxley wrestling on next week’s show. Earlier this year, AEW announced an expansion of their agreements with Warner Media for a second weekly television show, which will likely be Dark. There is no word on when the show could move to the network.
Dark has done well enough so far. Check out how it has gone:
Opinion: Dark has been a weird show over the last few weeks, with several of their shows running nearly an hour and a half while featuring nothing but matches with lower level talent. I’m really not sure what the point would be in having that on a major network, but maybe they are going to revamp it in a big way. If that is the case though, why not just make a new show and scrap Dark?
