Cody Rhodes Talks Dynamite Possibly Moving To Mondays

AEW Considering Dynamite Move To Mondays?
AEW Dynamite competes with NXT every week on Wednesday nights. Cody Rhodes is confident that AEW would do well on Monday nights as well.


While speaking to 11Alive, Cody Rhodes said he would like to have All Elite Wrestling’s Dynamite show off of Wednesdays within the next five years. He went on to say that he loves Wednesdays, but there is a lot more ground to cover and he is very sure of AEW’s ability to step up on Monday nights.
“I would like the company, in five years, to be on a different night and competing in the same fashion they are. Not that I don’t love Wednesday nights, but I can tell we have real players and I look at this data. We’re not lying about the revolution anymore. It’s very supported. I would love to see how it does on another night of the week.”

“In five years, who knows. If we had a random storm situation or something popped up and we had to put Dynamite on a Monday night, if that was to happen in this current threshold, I’d still be very confident in what we can do. And I’d be confident that our guys would be up for the challenge.”
Fightful Select reports that Tony Khan has no plans of moving their Dynamite show to Mondays. They don’t want to conflict with Mondays due to the NFL and Khan’s connection as an owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tony Khan has no plans to move from Wednesdays, and would never move to Mondays if he could help it. We’re told that has more to do with an NFL conflict than anything, considering the Khan family has a substantial interest with them owning the entirety of the Jacksonville Jaguars team and it would effectively be “competing against themselves.”
The company did consider Tuesdays at first. They even registered a trademark for Tuesday Night Dynamite. The idea would have been to take over for SmackDown after WWE left Tuesdays for Fridays.

AEW decided to go with Wednesdays for their weekly television show and it doesn’t appear that will change any time soon.
