AEW Dark

AEW Dark, or simply Dark, is a professional wrestling web television program. It is produced by the American promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and airs every Tuesday on their YouTube channel at 7pm ET. The program features matches taped before and after the preceding episode of AEW's flagship program, Dynamite, as well as segments highlighting the previous week's Dynamite and interviews with AEW personalities. The show was previously hosted by Tony Schiavone and Dasha Gonzalez in a studio called the "AEW Control Center."


History

On October 2, 2019, All Elite Wrestling's (AEW) flagship program, Dynamite, premiered on TNT. During the event, there were four dark matches, two before and two after the live broadcast. During the media scrum following this event, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan stated that the dark matches would become available to view on video in some form. On October 5, AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes announced a sister program to Dynamite called Dark, which would be the home of AEW's dark matches. The program began airing on Tuesdays on AEW's YouTube channel on October 8, with the exceptions of go-home shows that air Fridays before a pay-per-view. Unlike the dark matches of other wrestling promotions, which generally do not affect storylines, these matches on Dark are part of AEW's storylines and count towards the wrestlers' match statistics.

During the November 5 episode, Tony Schiavone announced AEW Spanish commentator Dasha Gonzalez would be his co-host going forward. Schiavone and Gonzalez hosted segments on Dark from the "AEW Control Center," highlighting matches and storylines within AEW. On December 31, AEW aired a special episode called AEW Dark - 2019 Year in Review, featuring highlights of the show from the past year.

On February 24, 2021, AEW announced that a new subseries of Dark would premiere on Monday, March 15 titled Dark: Elevation. This will be the promotion's third televised program, after Dynamite and Dark, and will air on Monday nights at 7pm ET, also on AEW's YouTube channel.


Roster

The wrestlers featured on All Elite Wrestling take part in scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers are portrayed as heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches.
