AEW will head back out on the road beginning in July after spending more than a year at Daily's Place in Jacksonville due to the pandemic.
While at Daily's Place, AEW taped Dynamite every other week and had marathon taping sessions for Dark and then Dark: Elevation. With Rampage being added to the schedule in August and Dark and Dark: Elevation unlikely to be taped for multiple hours each week in a new city, fans have wondered how the schedule will work moving forward.
Speaking to PWInsider, AEW President Tony Khan provided fans with the information.
"It's going to be different formats. I'll give you some scoops. I'll break the news. With Rampage, there's going to be some weeks Rampage will be live and there'll be weeks where we plan to tape Rampage after Dynamite, including here at Arthur Ashe stadium, where we will be filming also after. We'll do Dynamite live and we'll also film Rampage, and in some of the markets where we have these amazing crowds, I think it's okay," he said. "We can take advantage of it and give them Dynamite and Rampage. There are also going to be times where we're going to do a lot of live Rampages. We're going to have a live debut. We're going to do some great live episodes. The Go Home will be live for All Out at the Sears Center, and also we'll be live for the Go Home in St. Louis and it'll be great. We'll also be... so it'll be Rampage. It'll be really, really special for us. I think it will be, sometimes we'll do it after Dynamite. We'll do Dynamite, then we'll do Rampage. Sometimes if Rampage is not live, then that'll be one taping."
Khan continued by saying, "Before Dynamite, we used to tape Dark. That's going to change. I'm going to tape Elevation before Dynamite now. So it's going to be a shorter Elevation and I may add matches that I'll explain where I'll add them from. I'm going to procure a venue for use to tape Dark and other content that'll be great. And I'm really looking forward to this. I think it's going to be tremendous and it will be where we'll shoot Dark and we'll do tapings. And it'll be, as it's been, it's been a developmental situation and it'll continue to be developmental. And it's been great doing it all under one roof, all at one taping. There have been advantages, but there'll be some advantages now to doing it as its own taping and being able to give 100% attention to these and not having to also to think about Dynamite and soon Rampage and Elevation also."
AEW Rampage is set to debut on Friday, August 13 at 10 p.m. ET on TNT.
Prior to AEW Double or Nothing, Cody discussed how the format for Dark and Dark: Elevation would change, saying fans would see more talent from the local market they were visiting. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
