Tony Khan’s AEW negotiations with Warner Bros Discovery continue brewing amidst the rampant speculation of the NBA’s right loss. The updates regarding AEW’s WBD deal renewal have taken a jump with the upfront presentation of WBD coming to light this Wednesday morning. While it doesn’t really reveal the date and nature of the aforementioned deal, it spoke for the commencement of a new avenue for the Jacksonville-based company.

It seems Tony Khan is on the verge of getting another Blockbuster weekly show to beat and uplift his fate in the perpetual ratings war.

As Per the latest report from Fightful Select, the deal between WBD and AEW isn’t going to be spilled anytime soon. The potential timeline of an official announcement might come around the summer or fall of the current year. However, from the bright side of the reports, Khan, alongside WBD, is set to bring another pilot for a new show that is scheduled to be released this week.

While the concept and other details of this program are mostly in the dark, it won’t be a reality series, at least. In addition, a WBD inside source stated that WBD is thinking of taking the AEW PPVs to the MAX streaming service. While the process will take some more time to be fully materialized, the talks have been there since 2023.

A month back, during the pre-Dynasty media, the AEW Boss addressed the current state of his company and its prospects. Khan blatantly expressed his satisfaction with how he’s doing with an inflated revenue statement for the first quarter of 2024. Adding value to his claim, Khan noted he has included more events and witnessed greater attendance in cities like Boston, Toronto, etc. He added how AEW Revolution broke records being the biggest AEW pay-per-view show of all time since last year’s All In.
