All Elite Wrestling has announced that they have launched a new weekly podcast named AEW: UNRESTRICTED. The podcast will be hosted by referee Aubrey Edwards and commentator Tony Schiavone.
This is AEW’s first official podcast and will give fans a greater insight into their favourite wrestlers. The news comes after WWE launched the After the Bell podcast last year which is hosted by Corey Graves.
The debut episode of the show has already dropped and features an exclusive interview with Jon Moxley. Moxley is set to challenge AEW World Champion Chris Jericho at Revolution in just under two weeks.

Los Angeles, February 20, 2020 – TNT and All Elite Wrestling announced today the launch of a new weekly podcast, AEW: UNRESTRICTED. Hosted by fan favorite AEW referee Aubrey Edwards and renowned AEW broadcaster Tony Schiavone, AEW: UNRESTRICTED offers fans unique access to the stars of AEW.
Launching today, Thursday, February 20, each one-hour episode will feature Edwards and Schiavone
having in-depth conversations with AEW talent, sharing personal stories that will give exclusive insight into
their diverse experiences in wrestling and their lives outside the ring.
“One of the things fans love about AEW is the relatability and authenticity of their diverse group of talented
athletes,” says Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president, TNT, TBS, and truTV. “AEW:
UNRESTRICTED is another example of how we are creating deeper fan connections and providing a more
robust, multidimensional wrestling experience.”
“I’m an avid consumer of wrestling podcasts. They’re a great way to gain insight into the best minds in the
wrestling business,” says Tony Khan, president and CEO of AEW. “An AEW podcast was a must for me,
and I know TNT saw it the same way. Our goal for UNRESTRICTED is to make it the best podcast in
wrestling. We plan to create a new platform for our fans that will inform and entertain, and introduce a new
dimension of our wrestling company, and complement the compelling storylines and great wrestling we deliver
each week on DYNAMITE and DARK and at our pay-per-views.”
Initial episodes of AEW: UNRESTRICTED will feature interviews with Jon Moxley, Cody, The Young Bucks
(Matt & Nick Jackson) and Brandi Rhodes. The podcast — produced, sold and distributed by WarnerMedia
Podcast Network — is available for download on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, Google Podcasts or
wherever fans download their favorite podcasts. Fans will also be able to view the podcasts in video on the
TNT app and YouTube. AEW: UNRESTRICTED joins WarnerMedia Podcast Network’s growing portfolio of
