• Update On How Much Money AEW Will Make From Their New TV Show

As we have reported before, All Elite Wrestling is scheduled to debut a new TV show this Summer, called AEW Collision.

Collision is going to be a 2-hour show on Saturday nights, which is expected to begin on June 17th.

There have been talks of CM Punk returning to the company and being exclusive to this show, and avoid bringing him in contact with other top wrestlers that he has issues with.

According to the Wrestling Observer, AEW could earn at least $52 million per year from this new 2-hour show:

“If AEW only makes what Discovery has been paying for first run shows as a general rule ($500,000 per hour in general is what Discovery pays for first-run programming), that’s $52 million per year and that’s a game changing financial deal for AEW.”
