Tony Khan says next AEW TV media rights will get “huge increase”

Mar 1, 2024 - by Colin Vassallo

Tony Khan is sure that the next AEW TV media rights agreement will get a huge increase, an increase that will propel the company into profitability from 2025 onward.

Speaking at the Revolution press call with the wrestling media, Khan said that 2025 will be the year that AEW will go from a start-up to a proper challenger with profits for years to come.

AEW is currently in their option year with Warner Bros. Discovery and a new television deal for Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision has to be reached before the end of the year. All signs point to WBD retaining these rights and the AEW President is keen to continue the relationship with the media conglomerate as well.

Those negotiations will have to start – and wrap up – fairly soon and Khan did say that they will shop elsewhere eventually if things don’t progress with their current TV partner.

    There he goes again. His shows are doing pretty good ratings wise for 2024 cable standards. Getting a new deal or even a small increase are both very likely. However expecting a huge increase when your shows haven’t been able to maintain any viewership increase longterm is just plain silly. If he wasn’t holding to that dream, he’d probably have his renewal already.
