In recent months, AEW has been taping matches for episodes of AEW Dark in front of a live crowd prior to AEW Dynamite and Rampage.
From September 2021 until August 2022, AEW taped matches for Dark at Orlando’s Universal Studios every 4-6 weeks.
While the company has not taped there in months, Fightful Select (subscription required) is reporting that the current plan is for AEW to once again tape Dark from Universal Studios on December 17.
AEW taping Dark prior to Dynamite has led to more wrestlers getting looks in front of a live crowd in different cities.
Fightful hasn’t heard whether or not AEW plans to return to taping Dark in front of travelling AEW fans in the new year.
The report also notes that several AEW Dark regulars are hoping to once again pop up on the tapings when the company returns to Orlando.
AEW filming matches for Dark on the road allows them to get looks at more local talent to the area they are at that week.
