    LOL. Here's what really happened: Tony demanded a ludicrous pay raise and WBD told him to go frick himself. Now he's hoping some other network will give him ludicrous money for AEW but of course nobody will. So he'll try to re-open negotiations with WBD but they'll just tell him to go frick himself again. It's truly over. No renewy.

            I don't think this is proving your argument, buddy.

            You’re absolutely delusional if you think AEW is pulling 2 million on fox

            [...]
            In businesses if you lose your money maker you usually have to scale down, which is what would happen to TNT in this case

            They'll definitely be pulling a million or more on Fox.

            >Fox can easily snap them up for half of what they were paying for Smackdown and do relatively the same ratings.
            It doesn't work like that because Fox wouldn't just put Dynamite, Rampage, or even Collision on Friday Nights at 8 PM because Smackdown would be airing on Friday Nights at 8 PM on USA Network. Smackdown on FS1 pulls better numbers than Dynamite does on Wednesday Night at 8 PM on TBS. Speaking of FS1, that would be their best bet but if Smackdown with Roman Reigns or Cena barely pulls 1 million viewers, wtf do you think Dynamite with Young Bucks and Okada's going to do? Or Rampage with Mistico and Rocky Romero? Collision with FTR? Lmao get real for once.

            Smackdown on FS1 (approximately same amount of homes as TBS) for the majority has pulled way less numbers than Dynamite. You're completely delusional

            That was a rating from a year ago. Cable has been dying since then. AEW has literally done milly streaks more than the entirety of SD FS1 ratings. You're an utter moron if you actually think Dynamite will pull much less than SD on Fox. Maybe 500k less, but not any noticeable difference for a fraction of the price. You tell me which is better.

            Never argue with Folder homosexual, you're wasting your time. show stats.jpg, jpm rights.jpg, he'll always whip out some homosexual image and make bullshit arguments that make no sense. Guy is a complete idiot.

            Ohtani wasn't fired by the Angels, his contract expired. LeBron wasn't run out of Cleveland and had to go to the Heat/Lakers, he signed there as a free agent. And Fox didn't want to [over]pay the same amount Comcast/Universal did to bring WWE Smackdown back to cable.

            WWE is guaranteed 5 years on Netflix

            See above, it's a moron making moron arguments. "WWE is going to be in so much trouble if they get cancelled after only 5 years!" - as if they'll allow themselves to be Tony KWAB'd and only have a few months to find a new deal. Netflix likely needs to tell them a year or more ahead of time if they're opting out, and from there, WWE can find a new home on Amazon, NBCU, etc, or go back to Cable TV

            If you combine all 3 shows and count the catch up viewers that watch within 48 hours, AEW does good business. Why would you get rid? In 7 months time they'll be the only wrestling on television. You people overestimate how many wrestling fans over 50 are going to sign up to Netflix for WWE. They couldn't even get the average audience of SD to sign up to the network. Worldwide. In 7 months their network will die after just over a decade in service. They have tanked their own network and TV deals for Netflix who are well known to drop all manner of TV series no matter how much acclaim they get

            Smackdown will be on USA and NXT will be on CW, you moronic fat frick. You're an embarrassment to AEW fans, which I didn't even realize was possible.

            Going off the chart (You) posted, it doesn't even have to pull 2 million to offer more value than SLOPdown.

            Probably because its viewers aren't stupid, cultist poors.

            >Fox can easily snap them up for half of what they were paying for Smackdown and do relatively the same ratings.
            It doesn't work like that because Fox wouldn't just put Dynamite, Rampage, or even Collision on Friday Nights at 8 PM because Smackdown would be airing on Friday Nights at 8 PM on USA Network. Smackdown on FS1 pulls better numbers than Dynamite does on Wednesday Night at 8 PM on TBS. Speaking of FS1, that would be their best bet but if Smackdown with Roman Reigns or Cena barely pulls 1 million viewers, wtf do you think Dynamite with Young Bucks and Okada's going to do? Or Rampage with Mistico and Rocky Romero? Collision with FTR? Lmao get real for once.

            >he thinks Smackdown on USA would outdraw Dynamite on FOX

            lol look at that false equivalence. WBD is scrambling to renew their deal with the NBA but it's taking a long time because both sides are trying to utterly israelite the shit out of each other. Meanwhile, WBD let their exclusivity window with AEW expire because they aren't renewing it. That's why Meltzer is making up pre-cope that Tony wants to test the open market. It's not like they wanted to be renewed anyway baka

        Even if I get punched in the face with circumstances, it doesn’t mean that I’m going to take it out on staff by cutting 100 staff or laying off 30 wrestlers,” said Khan. “I really care about the people here and I would do anything I can to protect the jobs and livelihood of the people that work here. That’s a family business and that’s the difference between a family business and a public company in a lot of ways. Not every family business has those principles, but we do and that’s how I was raised. I feel there is not enough loyalty in the entertainment business. Yes, it’s no secret and it is a business. We’ll be up at the end of 2024, and I would love to stay at Warner Brothers Discovery forever.”

        Khan later went on to discuss his thoughts on WBD CEO David Zaslav. “Mr. Zaslav has been really kind to me and given me great opportunities and all things being equal, or even a couple cents difference, I would take a penny or two less to stay at Warner Brothers Discovery,” said Khan. “You don’t see that in media businesses very much, that kind of loyalty. I really appreciate everything they’ve done for me and continue to do.”

      Tina tipped "his" desperate hand by begging WBD to renew for less money. Anyone who isn't moronic saw trouble ahead for Poop Dick Wrestling. But it's a secondary concern for Tina herself. gAyEW was always meant to ruin indie wrestling, which it did. It's going to take years for the scene to heal if it's ever going to happen at all.

      AEW is catered to his preference in wrestling. If AEW doesn't draw then it means Meltzer's opinions don't draw a dime and his opinions only apply to the minority of fans.
      I don't even think he's getting paid by Tony Khan and I don't think he hates Triple H's WWE, he's just sticking up for AEW's type of wrestling in a sly israeli way.

    Tony is obsessed with being on the same channel as WCW because he's a mark. He's not a smart businessman, is he was then he wouldn't be recklessly wasting money as obviously as he is.
    He has named his titles after the TV stations. He literally named Dynamite after TNT, and it's very funny that they got pushed off of TNT. He has gone on record saying that he would take a lower offer to stay where he is.

            The people willing to put their money (and careers, and retirement, and life savings) where their mouth is say WBD is collapsing and you should steer clear. Who out there is saying you should buy WBD, but not leading by example, not buying up the stock while it's this low? Hucksters, swindlers, and trained liars.

            WWE/NBA went past their negotiating windows because they, for multiple rounds of TV talks now, have had multiple suitors lined up every renewal period. And both companies already have multiple media rights partners - WWE for 2025 will have NBCU, Netflix and The CW. --- AEW, unlike your mother, only has 1 partner....WBD. They do not have media companies lined up to throw money at them.

            AEW, which recently got cancelled in Serbia and Mexico, needs WBD much more than vice-versa. But WBD needs to overpay for NBA because it's the only premium sports package up for grabs, NFL isn't back up again until 2033 and UFC signed with ESPN for $300M/year.

            The idea AEW *wants* to test the open market is a half-truth at best. Their TV titles are literally named TBS and TNT, they're going to have egg on their face if they enter 2025 without programs across both networks.

        TKO/WWE/UFC has deals with Disney, NBCU, Netflix and The CW. There's an opening for AEW to land on WBD or Paramount, but both companies are struggling mightily, so they can give a competitive/market deal but they're not breaking the bank.

        The ongoing 'Cord Cope is that FOX is interested, but that makes little to no sense. They dumped WWE (Smackdown got cancelled, sadly) because it was considered low-brow among advertisers. AEW has much worse foul language and bleeding women power-bombing each other through tables.....so not exactly something Tide, Lexus or Captain Crunch would want to buy ad space for.

        My bet and my hope is that AEW lands a decent TV deal but a GREAT streaming deal to balance things out. If Tony Khan can show proof that AEW PPV sales aren't inflated VPN+Europe+$20 PPV numbers, but that there's really tens of thousands of US/Canadians buying each $60 offering, then the Streaming deal could really come through in the clutch. Adding old ROH/NJPW/Indy shows is a pipe dream because they use so much copyrighted music and other elements, MAX/Amazon/whoever isn't going to allow it. But AEW+nu-ROH back catalog could get some good views.

        We'll all have to stay tuned to see how things pan out

    If you combine all 3 shows and count the catch up viewers that watch within 48 hours, AEW does good business. Why would you get rid? In 7 months time they'll be the only wrestling on television. You people overestimate how many wrestling fans over 50 are going to sign up to Netflix for WWE. They couldn't even get the average audience of SD to sign up to the network. Worldwide. In 7 months their network will die after just over a decade in service.

    Unironically, if you were the top brass of FOX/WBD/other big company, how would you justify grabbing the AEW deal for your TV?

      Maybe for one of the small channels but no way to justify putting it on the main one.

    Will roast the frick out of you all console warring homosexuals, the day any development regarding this happens.

      Just like I will make fun of every joshibug that drops dead for either suicide, murder or natural dead. Everything is fair in shitposting.

    >NBA is the second most valuable franchise in the US
    Pretty sure the WWE is the second most valuable franchise, following the UFC.

    >Lachlan Murdoch is going to put Dynamite on Network TV AND also put Rampage and Collision on FS1 AND give AEW a streaming deal with Tubi
    >this is all more cost effective than the money Fox didn't make it on advertisers after they paid a billion for WWE

    Do you AEWtists actually hear yourselves?

      >WBD is going to give NBA level money to AEW for Dynamite, Collision, Rampage, BOTB, reality shows, plus PPVs, archives and ROH on MAX
      >but if it's true that they're struggling for money and won't spend big, then that's okay because Tony Khan will just get a mega deal from Fox
      >but if it's true that Fox is done w wrestling and already spent money on college sports, then thats okay because Tony will just get a mega deal from Amazon cuz they spend money on everything
      >but if it's true that Amazon only had interest in WWE and is putting it's money into the NBA, then thats okay because Tony will just get a mega deal from CBS/Paramount
