• Possible Bad News For AEW
WarnerMedia has canceled a lot of TV shows & movies as part of budgets cuts as of late, including ‘Batgirl’.
With AEW’s contract with them expiring at the end of next year, the Wrestling Observer thinks this is bad news for Tony Khan’s company:
“Your parent company is slicing budgets everywhere, they are stopping movies and TV shows in production, it’s been a bloodletting there and there’s probably more to come.
The timing for AEW, with their deal coming up at the end of next year, last few days haven’t been looking good.”
Right now, AEW’s Dynamite airs on TBS every Wednesday and Rampage airs on TNT every Friday.
