Update on the AEW and WBD discussions
Fightful Select reports AEW and WBD as of a few weeks ago were unable to come to terms on a deal which would include television rights, PPV, as well as the library. Those at WBD stated that Tony Khan has a particular value that he believes the AEW library is worth.
WBD sources that were spoken to said that they’ve been very happy with the AEW partnership and look for it to continue.
When asked about viewership numbers that are often the talking point, one source there noted that it isn’t anything that the company hadn’t anticipated, especially going up against competition in the fall.
