AEW Battle of The Belts IV to Air Live – TNT’s schedule confirms that the one-hour Battle of The Belts IV episode will air at 10pm ET next Friday, October 7. Battle of The Belts will begin right after the live AEW Rampage goes off the air.
Rampage and Battle of The Belts IV will take place at the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, DC. Tickets are still available for the double taping.
The inaugural Battle of The Belts event aired live, while the last three were taped. The previous shows have aired on a Saturday night, so this will be the first Battle of The Belts to air on a Friday night. It remains to be seen if Battle of The Belts will air live as it happens, or if it will be taped earlier in the night and air live on a slight tape delay.
Rampage that night will be the first of several Rampage episodes to be filmed separately from that week’s edition of Dynamite. The October 14 Rampage will be taped on Thursday, October 13 from the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto, while the October 21 Rampage will air live from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville. The October 28 Rampage will air live from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT.
