It’s in the details. There are a lot of wrestling shows every single week, with WWE and AEW alone running five weekly television series. Throw in their online shows and it is almost impossible to watch all of the wrestling available in a given week. Wrestling fans have all kinds of options and they will be getting a bonus early next year. Now we know a bit more about it.
Earlier this week, a rumor came out that AEW would be presenting a special show on Saturday January 8. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the show will only run an hour in length, which goes against the original plans for pay per view length cards with high level matches. There is still a chance that this could change in the future though. This will be one of four quarterly specials, as modeled on WCW/NWA Clash of the Champions. AEW has not yet announced the special.
Champions are an important part of AEW. Check out how some of them have gone so far:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that could work rather well and I’m intrigued by the show only being an hour rather than the full pay per view length. AEW has done a nice job of not overwhelming its fans by having too much television content and putting on a pay per view length special to go along with Dynamite and Rampage could be quite a bit over the span of four days.
What do you think of the show? How will the card look? Let us know in the comments below.
