Uk fans of AEW can watch weekly show Dynamite on numerous platforms and catch the likes of Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, and Kenny Omega in action.
When AEW announced it was going to start running a weekly show from October last year UK wrestling fans were rightly excited.
The first genuine alternative to WWE’s North American dominance since WCW or the better years of TNA was finally here and with some top stars.
The likes of former WWE superstars Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, and Dustin Rhodes joined the likes of The Elite, consisting of Cody, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page.
Soon, other big names began to join the show with Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone on commentary and Matt Hardy, Brodie Lee and Lance Archer all recently joining.
But it immediately became clear that watching AEW in the UK was not going to be straightforward.
A difficulty in advertising periods meant live broadcasting on UK TV was always going to be tough.
