All Elite Wrestling is reportedly close to signing a deal with the former home of WCW.

According to The Wrap, AEW is in “advanced talks” with Turner Broadcasting for a weekly series on TNT — though the site claims no contracts have actually been signed yet.

The publication also notes that any deal between the two parties would likely involve “multi-platform existence” for AEW, meaning their content would be accessible on other Tuner properties, such as its Bleacher Report Live streaming service.

The Wrap also claims the AEW series may not be year-round. 

As we previously reported, AEW broadcast team member Jim Ross recently claimed that a weekly, two hour All Elite Wrestling TV show would debut on a major network before the end of the year.

“When people hear what network we’re going on, they’re gonna be doubly excited. It’s a network we can all find,” he said.

The rumor going around is that Turner will announce the deal next month at their upfront presentation for advertisers. However, this has not been confirmed just yet.
