All Elite Wrestling star and Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes discussed the promotion’s second show on TNT during his media conference call. Rhodes is excited about the additional hour of television, and says we can expect something different from AEW Dynamite.
“I think all of our shows will end up with a different format,” Rhodes said of AEW having four different shows. “It’s a bit of a braintrust in forming those formats. Right now the focus is AEW Dark: Elevation, how we can make that different, and how we can feature our younger stars to get to know them. I’ll tell you one thing we won’t do with AEW Dark: Elevation, we’re not going to bait and switch. We’re not going to give you a show on night one that doesn’t reflect what that show will be like the rest of the year or many years.”
Rhodes couldn’t go into specifics, but he did praise the name of the yet-to-be-named program.
“When it comes to the additional hour of content on TNT, and I’m careful to say third hour since people sometimes think we’re going three hours, which we are not. When it comes to that, I can only tell you that it has a name and I love its name, but I can’t tell you what it is. Hopefully, on the next media call, we’ll be talking about it, but it will happen in 2021.
“In addition to that, there’s some other news featuring some other AEW talent regarding another show that is also in the Warner Media family … We’ve made some pretty large moves and we’re not stopping.”
