AEW reportedly trademarks new one-off TV series
AEW already has four programming blocks each week, including “AEW Dynamite” on TBS, “AEW Rampage” on TNT, and “AEW Dark: Elevation” and “AEW Dark” on YouTube. Now, a new report suggests that AEW’s fifth block could be coming to your TV soon.
According PWInsider, AEW filed a trademark yesterday for “All Elite Women.” Of the many purposes for which the term has been trademarked, the most notable may be “entertainment services in the nature of the creation, development and production of television programs” and “entertainment services in the nature of athletes professionals participating in wrestling competitions. “Additional filings have also been made regarding streaming content and merchandising.
As of this writing, it’s unconfirmed what this potential new show might entail, though the name suggests this new show would focus on some of AEW’s female stars. PWInsider speculates that the show could be a wrestling-based show, like “Dynamite”, “Rampage”, “Dark”, “Dark: Elevation”, or maybe even a reality show.
AEW has not commented on a potential new show and there was no indication that the promotion would add more programming to their roster. During an appearance on “Talk is Jericho” last winter with then-AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker, wrestling legend Jazz expressed her desire to see AEW launch an all-female program on the road. Jazz previously competed in AEW’s first-ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal at All Out 2019.
In the past, AEW has held two short-term programs dedicated to its women’s division. The first was in late summer 2020 when the promotion held Daily’s Place Women’s Deadly Draw Tag Team Tournament during the COVID-19 pandemic. After being streamed on YouTube, the tournament finals would take place on August 23 “AEW Dynamite”, with Diamante and Ivelisse defeating Brandi Rhodes and Allie (The Bunny) to win the tournament.
The second was the Japanese bracket for the AEW Women’s Eliminator tournament, which took place outside the Ice Ribbon Dojo in Japan in February 2021 and was streamed on Bleacher Report and YouTube. Ryo Mizunami would eventually win the Japanese bracket and win the entire tournament on the March 3 episode of “Dynamite”. She would lose her title shot to Hikaru Shida a few days later at AEW Revolution.
