Tony Khan talks about AEW’s new recording program
All Elite Wrestling is preparing to hit the road again, with several Dynamite events announced throughout the summer, including their big show in New York City on September 22.
During a media appearance in New York on Wednesday, AEW founder Tony Khan spoke to Mike Johnson about PWInsider, speaking on a number of topics, including AEW’s revised registration schedule.
As previously announced, AEW’s new weekly show Rampage will air on Friday, August 13. Khan has confirmed that an episode of Rampage will be pre-recorded in New York City ahead of Dynamite Grand Slam.
Khan noted that Rampage will be taped for a few weeks and aired live for the Homecoming episodes for pay-per-view events.
There will also be times when we’re going to do a lot of Rampages live. We’re going to make a live debut. We’re going to do some great live episodes. The Go Home will be live for All Out at the Sears Center, and we will also be live for the Go Home in St. Louis and that will be great.
As for how AEW plans to run its weekly TV schedule, Khan revealed changes are coming, including a new location to record AEW Dark.
Before Dynamite, we were recording Dark. It will change. I will be recording Elevation before Dynamite now. So it’s going to be a shorter elevation and I can add matches which I will explain from where I will add them. I’m going to get myself a place to record Dark and other stuff that will be great. And I’m really looking forward to that. I think it’s going to be great and that’s going to be where we shoot Dark and make recordings. And it will be, as it was, a development situation and it will continue to be. And it was great to do it all under one roof, all in one recording. And there have been advantages, but now there will be advantages to doing it as your own recording and being able to pay 100% attention to it and not having to think about Dynamite and soon Rampage and Elevation as well.
