Now Playing: Here's Why You Can Stop Saying "Wrestling Is Fake"

In January of this year, All Elite Wrestling was formed. The new wrestling promotion had plenty of people excited, and we're a week away from the first episode of the new weekly series. And this new TV show on TNT now has a name: AEW Dynamite.

The two-hour weekly series kicking off on October 2 will air live on TNT at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET. For those unfamiliar with the brand, it's a wrestling company constructed from the ground up and run by wrestlers, many of which are on the current roster like Matt and Nick Jackson (The Young Bucks), Brandi and Cody Rhodes, and Kenny Omega. AEW revealed some--pun intended--dynamite promotional art for the show. You can check it out below.

The image features in-ring talent featuring faces you may or may not know from the world of wrestling: Cody Rhodes, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Awesome Kong, Brandi Rhodes, Kenny Omega, Luchasaurus, Dr. Britt Baker, MJF, Matt and Nick Jackson, Jungle Boy, Dustin Rhodes, and Nyla Rose.

Additionally, the wrestling promotion released a secondary poster featuring Cody and Dustin Rhodes, which you can see below.

AEW grew out of the friendship between The Elite (a spinoff of NJPW's Bullet Club) members Omega and the Jacksons, which became the travel vlog series Being The Elite. The series grew into a weekly show series where fans could follow storylines and meet other wrestlers who would eventually join The Elite ranks: Cody & Brandi Rhodes, MJF, SCU, Adam Page, and more. In 2018, The Elite put on a special wrestling PPV in Hoffman Estates, IL called All In, which gave fans a glimpse of what's to come.

Then, in January 2019, The Elite announced the formation of AEW with President and CEO Tony Khan--who is also the co-owner of the NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars--and since then, the promotion has put on some very fun and exciting PPVs, including a few free events, which was a welcomed surprise.

Many wrestling fans are excited for AEW's weekly TV series, as it marks the return of a non-WWE company returning to cable television with a live series. AEW Dynamite comes to TNT on Wednesday, October 2. You can find the live schedule and info about tickets on the AEW website.
