Tony Khan ‘strongly considering’ splitting AEW Dark into two shows

AEW’s developmental YouTube show has grown into a monster, so much so that it may be split in two.

AEW President Tony Khan spoke to the media today to promote the special “Winter is Coming” episode of Dynamite set to air live tomorrow. The call (courtesy of PWInsider) had plenty of interesting information and thoughts, including that Khan is “seriously considering” splitting Dark, AEW’s weekly YouTube show, into two shows.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

In the call, Tony said that Dark has become very valuable to the company, so much so that he is considering splitting it into two different shows — one that’s more purely developmental, while the other one would feature more established talent. He specifically pointed to “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs as an example of a wrestler who has benefitted greatly from Dark.

On the topic of Dark and AEW’s ever-growing list of talent they work with, Khan said there are cuts that “could have and should have been made”, but in light of the pandemic, he’s made the decision to keep people contracted so they can weather the storm.

Dark is indeed a great platform for lesser-known wrestlers to cut their teeth and have a chance to impress AEW, but it’s not without its problems, chief among them the long run time. Splitting it into two different shows would certainly alleviate that issue.
