AEW Will Air Live On TruTV If MLB Playoff Game Runs Long

UPDATE: This is now official.

TBS is airing back-to-back Major League Baseball playoff games tonight and that might have ramifications on where All Elite Wrestling airs tonight.

As reported by Voices of Wrestling, if the St. Louis Cardinals vs. Atlanta Braves playoff game runs long it will get shifted to airing on TNT rather than TBS. This is so the Washington Nationals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers game can air on time (which is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m.).

This is a problem for AEW Dynamite as the show is set to air live at 8 p.m. ET on TNT. The current solution is that AEW would be shifted to one of Turner’s other programming stations, TruTV, in full. Those that don’t have the station will be glad to know that AEW Dynamite will reair from 10 p.m. to midnight on TNT regardless of what happens. So you can catch the show even if it gets preempted by playoff baseball.

This is a rough curve ball for AEW to get in their second week of television, but it might wind up being a non-factor.
