There’s still room for more. We are less than a year into the AEW Dynamite era as the show only debuted last October. While the show has already come to be a near institution on Wednesday nights, it is still a very young show that has evolved in a big way from what it was doing when it first debuted. That is how every wrestling show goes, and we might be in for another change.
One of the most well received aspects of Dynamite is that it feels like it comes and goes in a hurry. That is a very nice feeling and something that can put Dynamite in a different area than Monday Night Raw. Looking at the clock and seeing that there is less than an hour to go often leaves you wondering how the show has flown by so fast. That feeling might be going away soon.
During a new interview with ESPN.com, Cody was asked about AEW introducing a second show or adding a third hour to Dynamite. Cody said that there would be a better answer to the question in four to six weeks, with the idea of an extra hour being to show another crop of talent than usual on AEW. This comes after the announcement of another AEW show coming to TNT earlier this year, though more details have yet to be announced.
Dynamite has been a big deal so far. Check out what went down this week:
Opinion: This is something where I would need to see the details, but the idea of another hour of Dynamite sounds like a bad idea on paper. One of the biggest criticisms of Monday Night Raw has been that there is too much content. Having another hour tacked on seems like it is messing with something that works. AEW is making a two hour show work. Do you want to mess with that chemistry which is still only about ten months old?
Do you want another hour? How should the show be put together? Let us know in the comments below.
