It started as a desire to put on a great indie show that could sell out a 10,000 seat arena. Then, it became a desire to do even more. With the fans behind them, the wrestlers known as The Elite came together and got their allies to make something new in the wrestling world. Something the fans would be proud of, something that the fans could truly say they’re a part of. They made All Elite Wrestling.
It started simply at a press event in Jacksonville, that turned into a sold-out event in Las Vegas via Double Or Nothing that truly changed the wrestling world. Then, they continued to show their power and skills via events like Fyter Fest and Fight for the Fallen. They’re promoting their next big event in ALL OUT that aims to be one of the best wrestling shows of the year. And now, TNT has confirmed that on October 2nd of this year, All Elite Wrestling’s weekly live show will arrive.
The All Elite Era begins TODAY.

The show will apparently start (TV wise) at 7PM CT and go two hours. Thus putting it as direct competition to WWE, Impact Wrestling, and other wrestling shows. Many fans are excited for this, but how far this revolution will go is unknown…but it will be exciting to watch.
