AEW Becoming A Billion Dollar Company. All Elite Wrestling, the phenomenon upstart professional wrestling promotion owned by Fulham FC. And Jacksonville Jaguars owned by Tony Khan and Shahid Khan, has become a billion dollar enterprise. If rumours are to be believed.
Reports say that the company has inked a $1 billion+ deal over five years with Warner Bros. Discovery, which already airs the company’s flagship shows in the United States. AEW Dynamite and AEW Rampage, to be announced next week in New York City at the company’s next up-fronts.
The announcement will reportedly include an announcement of the deal, as well as a new two-hour Saturday series, AEW Collision. Which will become an equally as important show as Dynamite.
The deal will also likely cover the company’s PPVs, or premium live events as the company’s main rival WWE does. It will not cover the Tony Khan-owned legacy promotion Ring of Honor (ROH). Though it is the reason that the company recently halted its YouTube-based series AEW Dark and AEW Dark Elevation.
Mike Sempervive speculated on today’s Wrestling Observer Live that this could lead to AEW streaming live events on the former HBO Max, now just called Max, in the United States, nothing that this is something the company has discussed in the past but would be unable to do with other sports companies it works with, such as the NBA or NHL, as they don’t have the same overall rights they do to a company like AEW. We’ll be covering more on this so stay tuned and remember…the home of professional wrestling is All Elite Wrestling! For more updates follow AEWHindi.com.
