• AEW Dynamite Could Be Forced To Move To Friday Nights

Turner Broadcasting System recently signed the rights to bring NHL to their network.

According to the Wrestling Observer, AEW Dynamite could be forced to move out of Wednesday nights due to this move, and that they can only shift to Monday or Friday.

AEW President Tony Khan doesn’t prefer Monday nights due to the competition from NFL (and he also doesn’t like the idea of competing with his own team of Jacksonville Jaguars from the NFL).

This led to the Wrestling Observer speculating that Dynamite could be forced to move to Friday nights and compete with WWE SmackDown, which airs on a much larger network (FOX).

“For TNT to move AEW and the problem is your choices would be Monday night and Friday night and it would probably be Friday Night because Tony Khan was very adamant about not running on Monday night because he doesn’t want to go against the NFL three months of the year, more than that actually.

Friday would be going back to splitting the audience and you’re on a much weaker channel [than Fox].”

WWE NXT recently moved to Tuesday nights because of the NBC Sports Network shutting down, and the USA Network wanting the Wednesday night slot for NHL content.
