Earlier this year All Elite Wrestling was unveiled to the world as a wrestling promotion. Since that time wrestling fans have been anxiously awaiting the announcement of the companies television partner.
“AEW will kick off with Double Or Nothing, a Las Vegas event set to air on May 25, and the punches will continue to fly during primetime broadcasts on TNT beginning this fall. AEW content will also stream via Bleacher Report’s B/R Live and during select pay-per-view slots. And thank god, because, without a viable competitor, WWE’s non-NXT content has consistently grown worse and worse. Talented performers are wasted, storylines are recycled, and fans are often left with nowhere else to turn.”
