We now have some more information about AEW’s live event schedule and television plans going forward. According to a report from The Wrestling Observer All Elite Wrestling is scheduled to run between 100 and 120 live events per year.
This will include four pay-per-views, 51 weeks of TV with the exception of preemption being Christmas Day, and Saturday house shows with a rotating roster. It was also said that there is the possibility for more than one house show per week. The idea in mind is to do it with a rotating roster that is spread around, where the top talents would be working around 75 matches.
It was also believed that the official name for AEW’s weekly TV program will be announced sometime over the next week or two. While the expected name for the show was thought to be Wednesday Night Dynamite, the name was never used in any of the press releases. It is still one of the possible choices for the program, but there is said to be other names being tested.
AEW plans to run their live events in different sized arenas, the size will depend on demand, with venues for the most part set up to hold between 6,000 and 11,000 fans. It was also stated that there will be the occasional show that may have a unique location different from the standard arena.
They plan to have a bell time of 7:30 PM EST, with a 30 minute dark pre-show with warm-up matches prior to the TV show beginning at 8 PM EST.
