All Elite Wrestling is preparing to return to the road, with several Dynamite events announced throughout the summer, including their big show in New York City on September 22.
During a media appearance in New York on Wednesday, AEW founder Tony Khan spoke to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, speaking on a number of topics, including AEW’s revised taping schedule.
As previously announced, AEW’s new weekly show Rampage will premiere on Friday, August 13. Khan confirmed, an episode of Rampage will be pre-taped in New York ahead of Dynamite Grand Slam.
Khan noted, Rampage will be taped some weeks, and air live for go-home episodes for pay-per-view events.
There’s also going to be times where we’re going to do a lot of live Rampages. We’re going to have a live debut. We’re going to do some great live episodes. The Go Home will be live for All Out at the Sears Center, and also we’ll be live for the Go Home in St. Louis and it’ll be great.
As far as how AEW plans to handle their weekly television schedule, Khan revealed changes are coming, including a new venue to tape AEW Dark.
Before Dynamite, we used to tape Dark. That’s going to change. I’m going to tape Elevation before Dynamite now. So it’s going to be a shorter Elevation and I may add matches that I’ll explain where I’ll add them from. I’m going to procure a venue for use to tape Dark and other content that’ll be great. And I’m really looking forward to this. I think it’s going to be tremendous and it will be where we’ll shoot Dark and we’ll do tapings. And it’ll be, as it’s been, it’s been a developmental situation and it’ll continue to be developmental. And it’s been great doing it all under one roof, all at one taping. And there’s been advantages, but there’ll be some advantages now to doing it as its own taping and being able to give 100% attention to these and not having also to think about Dynamite and soon Rampage and Elevation also.
