ESPN Announces First Wrestling Partnership In ANZ

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has announced that ESPN has acquired their broadcasting rights in Australia, New Zealand and the pacific islands, giving fans the chance to see the high-energy, high-stakes matches and storylines of AEW.

The new partnership between ESPN and AEW represents a significant investment in the sport and a recognition of its growing popularity and global appeal, where it is expected to bring new fans to the sport, and to increase its exposure and popularity in the region.

Detailing more about the partnership, an AEW statement said: “This marks AEW’s first broadcast deal in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, and ESPN’s first broadcast partnership with a professional wrestling organisation in the region.”

“AEW, the new professional wrestling league taking the world by storm, is continuing its meteoric rise with record-high ratings, world-class roster and highly entertaining product.

“Each week on ESPN, fans in the region can catch all the action on AEW: DYNAMITE on Thursday AEDT and AEW: RAMPAGE on Saturday AEDT, with same-day replays and episodes made available on-demand.

“In addition, through ESPN, fans will have access to all of AEW’s quarterly pay-per-view events on delay,” it said.

The deal also marks the first time two professional wrestling organisations will have TV coverage on weekly basis after Foxtel extended their partnership with the WWE.
