The word making the rounds is that between the switch to TBS, Rampage and the new quarterly specials on TNT, All Elite Wrestling is receiving in the area of an "eight figure payday" from WarnerMedia.

A big part of the move was brought about by WarnerMedia making their deal with the NHL.

Internally within AEW, this is being seen as a positive and a way to increase the company's footprint on multiple networks and additional content to produce.

WarnerMedia's Brett Weitz issued the following statement to the New York Post about the move: 

“Both TBS and TNT have an incredibly storied history with wrestling, so the idea of us being able to put more AEW onto TBS is a natural fit. Did the NHL have anything to do with it? Sure. NHL had something to do with it. NBA had something to do with it, the college schedule, the ton of preemptions. When we looked where the consumer’s gonna be, where wrestling fans were going to be, we want to give them the most opportunity to consume as many shows as possible. We felt TBS had an opportunity to be the network and the best platform for expansion."
