Professional wrestling upstart promotion All Elite Wrestling is continuing to revolutionize the sport in creative ways. After winning the Friday Night War against WWE last week, the upstart promotion will have another pre-show ahead of this weekend’s special episode of Saturday Night Dynamite.
AEW founder Tony Khan took to Twitter to announce that Saturday’s episode of Dynamite will have a college football-themed pregame show, which will cover all the big moments and highlights on the gridiron and preview the upcoming action inside of the squared circle. The show will begin streaming at 7:05 ET, on Saturday, October 23, and will likely stream on AEW’s YouTube page, but Khan hasn’t confirmed yet.
In another tweet, Khan stated that the show will feature AEW broadcasters Jim Ross, Taz, and Tony Schiavone calling and analyzing the biggest and best highlights from the Top 10 teams in college football. After the AEW/College Football Saturday Dynamite Pregame Show, the trio will welcome fans to another edition of Saturday Night Dynamite.
Due to the NHL on TNT airing on Wednesday night, AEW Dynamite was moved to Saturday and this week’s episode is going to have an explosive card from top to bottom. Directly following the pregame show, Dynamite will air live from Addition Financial Arena in Orlando, FL, and will feature two matches in the World Title Eliminator tournament (Dustin Rhodes vs. Bryan Danielson and Lance Archer vs. Eddie Kingston), and the third bout in the Malakai Black vs. Cody Rhodes trilogy. The Women’s TBS Championship tournament will also kick off tomorrow and will feature 12 women with 4 first-round byes.
Saturday should be a fun day for college football and wrestling fans when both worlds collide. Catch all of Saturday night’s in-ring action when AEW Dynamite airs at 8:00 p.m. ET on TNT.
