AEW has been included in Warner Bros Discovery’s upfront presentation for their new show. However, due to the ongoing writers’ strike in Hollywood, AEW wrestlers won’t be attending the event. The decision was made out of respect for the talent and the strikers.
The strike has caused WBD to reduce their lineup from the original pre-strike plan, which included big stars such as Magnolia Network’s Chip and Joanna Gaines. Variety reports that AEW was not mentioned in the report, but their talent is likely to be included as their new show does not have unionized writers.
The new deal with Warner Bros Discovery is an exclusive one, and AEW has decided to remove AEW Dark and AEW Dark Elevation from their weekly lineup, as their YouTube shows are no more. Only time will tell how AEW Collision pans out, as they will do everything they can to draw attention to it with their new show.
