Tony Schiavone Hopeful That WarnerMedia/Discovery Merger Results In AEW Streaming Service AEW

Tony Schiavone has commented on the possibility of the WarnerMedia-Discovery merger leading to the launch of an AEW streaming service.

There has been some concern amongst fans that after the merger, some joining WarnerMedia won’t want wrestling associated with the brand.

Speaking on What Happened When, Schiavone pointed out that AEW have maintained a good relationship with WarnerMedia since the promotion’s launch.

Hopeful that AEW will soon have its own network for old shows, Schiavone said:

“I think we have a viable enough product that if Discovery says, ‘We don’t wrestling’, we could end up somewhere else,” he said.

“The Khan’s are pretty plugged in. That’s what’s different about this era is that if Time Warner/Discovery doesn’t want us, we still have a business. I think there’s always some concern, but we’ve built up a very good relationship with Warner Media.”

“If this merger comes, and as we’ve been reading, they’ve been clearing out a lot of people, it seems to me they are really big into streaming services. What I hope this means is that we are finally going to have a streaming service. In other words, we are finally going to have our own network where we can show our old shows.”

AEW are preparing for a busy few months, with the annual AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view slated for March 29, and the AEW x NJPW ‘Forbidden Door’ event scheduled for June 26.
