AEW Dynamite is going through some changes in August and September. AEW’s 2-hour weekly show, which usually broadcasts on Wednesdays on TNT, is now going through some changes to the broadcast timing due to TNT’s coverage of NBA.
The changes to the broadcast, announced through a WarnerMedia press release, are as follows:
- Wednesday, August 19 episode will air on Saturday, August 22 at 6 PM ET.
- Wednesday, August 26 episode will air later that night after NBA coverage. However, on Thursday, August 27 at 8 PM EST, there will be a replay.
- Wednesday, September 16 episode will air Thursday, September 17, at 8 PM EST.
As a result of the changes, it should be noted that the August 22nd episode of AEW Dynamite will go head-to-head with NXT TakeOver: XXV during their second hour (7-8 PM).
AEW Dynamite will air on the changed days and timing outside the USA as well.

Such changes are the last thing that AEW needs at the moment as they build towards All Out. The changes in the schedule might also affect NXT’s viewership as they will air at the same time, against TNT’s NBA coverage.
Meanwhile, AEW has announced the first match for The Deadly Draw Women’s Tag Team tournament.
