Tony Khan Talks Turning Down Three Hour AEW Dynamite Shows

Last updated

AEW President Tony Khan recently appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio. The owner of All Elite discussed a number of topics during the show, including the brand new AEW Rampage show that will start airing as of August.

Interestingly, Khan mentioned that he was offered a three hour slot for AEW Dynamite every Wednesday night. Tony Khan did not want to take that option, and therefore we have the new show airing at 10pm after SmackDown every Friday as of the summer.

‘So I have renegotiated our contract with TNT and TBS and we’ve made a great agreement,’ Khan began on Busted Open. ‘I’m very excited about it. First of all, we’re launching a third hour of wrestling that I’ve talked about a lot.”

“It’ll be Friday nights at 10 p.m. It will be in addition to Dynamite on Wednesdays, 8-10” Khan revealed. “We’re launching a show called Rampage (that) I’m really excited about and wanted to do for a long time. It was part of our original extension over a year ago.”

‘It’s great for everybody here, it’s big news,’ Tony Khan added. ‘We knew that another show was coming this year. I’ve been saying it for a long time that we were going to add another night, one hour.”

“I didn’t want to do three hours of Dynamite” Khan revealed. “They (WarnerMedia) asked at one point if I wanted to do three hours of Dynamite. It came up about doing a third hour and I said I really believed in doing it on another night.’
