TNT Did Not Send A Mandate To AEW Demanding Women’s Wrestling

Rumors have been swirling that TNT demanded that Tony Khan and AEW have women’s wrestling.

Fightful Select reported clarifying this rumor about TNT sending down a decree to AEW saying that they must feature a women’s match per episode. Neither side confirmed this request was made, but TNT does like to have a good social rating for their show. That being said, the fact that AEW features women’s wrestling is a good thing.

Fightful has spoken to sources within AEW and Turner who have indicated that was never a decree made, and a request for more or less women’s matches wasn’t something that was outlined or passed along to others within the company. Instead, we’re told that WarnerMedia is more focused on good content, and particularly enjoy when the program has a good social rating and a television ratings story, as indicated by the press releases they send to media when the show performs well in viewership.

It’s safe to say WarnerMedia is very pleased with AEW and the results they have brought so far. There may be more to this story, but they’re not dealing with anything specific right now. AEW has continued to produce great content in all aspects of its product, so well that earlier this year Variety reported that AEW will move Dynamite to TBS on January 5th, 2022.
