Will we actually see a new AEW reality show come to fruition or could it be subject to budget cuts from Warner Bros. Discvoery?
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, any new offerings to the AEW reality show catalog were greenlit from the network prior to the new owners, with Discovery acquiring WarnerMedia to form the new Warner Bros. Discovery.
Sharing his thoughts about whether or not a recent AEW fan survey asking for the preferred name of an upcoming, backstage style reality show was promising, Meltzer said:
“It’s good news. I think some people are trying to make it as better news than it really is, in the sense that it’s like, ‘they’re looking at adding another show so therefore Discovery is all fine with this,’ when in reality this was all greenlit long before Discovery. It’s just filling the time slot, most likely, of Rhodes to the Top, which was already greenlit, so it’s basically a replacement for another wrestling show as opposed to adding new content. I know they were working on other stuff….different shows in development. So, they could be adding more stuff, which could be a good sign, but that’s the basic gist. It’s likely several months away.”
It has recently been announced that Warner Bros. Discovery has scrapped production on its scripted series with anticipated budget cuts as the new CFO has promised to find $3 billion in cost savings throughout the new corporation post-merger, including scrapping the recently launched CNN+.
