AEW Donated $100,000 to Oceana. Special AEW: Dynamite Fight For The Fallen Donation Caps Special “Shark Week” Collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery in  Support of Oceana’s Mission to Protect and Restore the World’s Oceans.

July 27, 2022 – Continuing its commitment to supporting charitable organizations and  communities, AEW announced a $100,000 donation to Oceana, the largest international advocacy  organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation. Oceana is winning campaigns around the  world that stop overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution, and the killing of threatened species  like turtles and sharks.  

The donation was announced during Wednesday’s special “Fight for the Fallen” episode of “AEW:  Dynamite” on TBS, live from the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass. The donation comes on the  heels of an unprecedented cross-promotion between AEW and Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week,”  summer’s most-anticipated television event which returned on July 24 for its historic 34th year.  Premiere night of “Shark Week” showed no signs of slowing down — up a whopping +500% vs. the  same night a year ago in Live +Same Day ratings. “Shark Week” elevated Discovery Channel to be  the #1 network in Prime Time across all of television among Men and Teens*.
