Several months ago, word got about AEW trademarking “Tuesday Night Dynamite” for their weekly television show. Apparently, TV talks were far enough that the feeling was that Tuesday night was a safe bet.
A couple of months ago, Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the “Tuesday Night Dynamite” idea was dead and it was looking like their weekly show would happen on a different night… perhaps Wednesday or Thursday night.
However, something has changed and the idea of a Tuesday night show is alive again so it’s possible that AEW will have a show opposite of WWE’s planned studio show on FS1.
The big rumor is that TNT is interested but there is at least one other major network in talks with them. The “Tuesday Night Dynamite” name seems like a big indication that TNT is the heavy favorite to get the show.
We may get official word on TV plans soon because the belief is that their TV deal will have a streaming component for pay-per-view events similar to UFC. The UFC pay-per-views air on the ESPN+ service and some of their free shows air on the regular ESPN cable network.
AEW will announce pay-per-view plans for “Double Or Nothing” in the next week or two so that could be when their TV deal is completed. If AEW do sign a deal with TNT then the best bet is that their pay-per-views/special events would air on Bleacher Report Live streaming app.
