    WON: Details on AEW TV Deal

    • "The day of the week is not official, although it will likely be either Tuesday or Wednesday night."

    • "If it does go on Tuesday, it would likely mean, like was the case with wrestling in the WCW era, that during the NBA season it would likely be cut down. It would air, perhaps on one hour form some weeks, and probably just prior to the NBA game of the night."

    • "The show’s name hasn’t been decided on."

    • "AEW is currently negotiating television deals in the U.K., obviously with ITV 4, and in Canada, but the deals can’t be finalized until the day of the week is decided. Australia and Mexico are targets as well, but the U.S., U.K. and Canada are expected to be the key markets when the show launches."

    • "The deal also includes content on B/R Live, including PPV shows. The PPV content will be done more like UFC, where it will be a full price PPV at $49.95, and not undercutting the PPV providers’ price. That may have been something that they had little choice on, because in cutting recent deals with inDemand, Dish and DirecTV, the contract stipulations likely called for an inability to undercut the price on streaming. WWE was able to do that by basically just doing it, and the PPV providers had to either agree to continue airing the shows or not. But WWE had leverage due to its long history which AEW wouldn’t have had."

    • "AEW to TNT had been talked about by AEW President Tony Khan and Kevin Reilly, the President of TNT and TBS, for nearly one year, even predating All In. But the first actual serious negotiations started in mid-November. Khan had promised a strong roster in those negotiations and was able to sign every key person he had promised."

    • "There were also negotiations with Showtime, although TNT was always the favorite to end up as the destination point. Showtime would have likely been a deal for major shows, perhaps longer than two hours, like in the Strikeforce days, but not weekly."

    • "The key is that WarnerMedia will be paying for production, the value of which is unknown. "

    • "There is also an ad revenue split with a downside guarantee. So the final value of the deal will be directly related to ad rates and attractiveness of the product, as well as in the long run, the ratings. This behooves AEW to do an advertiser friendly show. "

    • "TNT is available in slightly more homes, just under 90 million, than USA, which is in just under 89 million homes. USA only beats TNT in ratings due to Raw and Smackdown."
    Still no word on if AEW is getting a programming fee. Have a feeling they are not since they aren't touting it.

    Ryback wouldn’t wow or turn me on to their product if I wasn’t planning on watching anyway. The only realistic person here is Punk.

    She took a hard bump against Bayley her first match back. It’s a shame if she’s done to be honest.

    She's a decent actress and promo. She should transition to a role like GM or a manager.

    But things escalated on the sponsor front. Fans contacted a number of different sponsors, spurred by WWE being pressured at the 2018 WrestleMania to drop the Fabulous Moolah’s name from the women’s Battle Royal.

    It is not known how many put pressure on WWE, but Mars Wrigley Confectionery did write a letter back to one customer if not more, which surfaced, saying, “Thank you for reaching out to Mars Wrigley Confectionery with your comments. We learned of Lars Sullivan’s comments recently and share in your shock and disgust. As a values-based company, we find his behavior abhorrent and unacceptable. We have engaged the WWE to discuss this situation and seek to understand what actions they will take to swiftly address this matter. We hope this information is helpful and wish you a great day!”
