Being The Elite & ROH Reportedly Not Expected To Be Part Of New AEW TV Deal WIth WBD

AEW's new television deal with Warner Bros Discovery is expected to encompass all television and streaming programming under the company banner; with two notable exceptions. Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, neither ROH nor "Being The Elite" will be involved in the deal. The reason is that ROH is considered a separate company that is different from AEW, despite the fact Tony Khan owns both. Meanwhile, the "Being the Elite" YouTube channel is also being kept separate because that property is owned by The Young Bucks themselves. The deal will feature five hours of wrestling programming per week with "AEW Dynamite," "AEW Rampage," and the rumored new two-hour Saturday show "AEW Collision," plus any potential spinoffs such as "AEW All Access."


ROH has been streaming its content on Honor Club since it began as a weekly television product, but AEW has continued to push certain elements of ROH on its weekly programming. That was evident this week when Claudio Castagnoli and Rey Fenix competed in a double jeopardy match on "Dynamite." Meanwhile, "Being The Elite" actually pre-dates AEW, as the weekly video series is something The Young Bucks were doing long before the company was created. The show features a range of skits from members of the AEW roster, but it can often add further drama and details to storylines on television. 

The new deal is expected to be announced next week as part of WBD's upfronts presentation, with "Collision" also set to be officially revealed next week, and its debut episode likely to see the return of CM Punk to AEW television
