Changes Coming Soon To AEW Television? AEW

A big change is coming to AEW television that could upset fans of its less PG-rated presentation, and bring it more in line with WWE.

Since its inception, AEW has presented itself as the TV-14 alternative to WWE’s family-friendly programming.

However, according to one AEW star that could soon change.

Speaking at a Q&A with, commentator Jim Ross said that the company will feature less swearing on its programming going forward:

“We had a string in AEW where there was a lot of controversial language. I think you’ll see less of that.

“It’s unnecessary and shows a lack of creativity if you can’t come up with an adjective or adverb that is better than something a little coarse. The times are going to dictate that.”

There were recently conflicting reports on whether TNT and TBS had a problem with the amount of swearing on AEW TV, but Ace Steel was fined for swearing on Dynamite a few weeks ago, so it seems there is at least some kind of rule in place.

AEW has had a number of notable instances of swearing during its lifetime, including MJF calling company owner Tony Khan a “f**king mark” on live television in June.
