– Satnam Singh’s debut in the current edition of AEW Dynamite started the conversation. As is now known, the surprising appearance of the 218 cm tall and 132 kg Indian was well calculated. In India, AEW broadcasts on Eurosport and this channel is part of the Discovery group. Discovery recently merged with WarnerMedia, the parent company of TNT and TBS. AEW wanted to launch a wide angle for the Indian market and that’s where 26-year-old Singh plays a crucial role. The former basketball pro will form a stable with Sonjay Dutt, who also has Indian roots and has worked as a producer for AEW since the summer of 2021, and Jay Lethal, who will eventually serve the Indian market. Among other things, they will produce special promos for Indian fans. The objective is to build a gateway to Discovery with the Angle via Eurosport. With WarnerMedia and Discovery joining forces, the relationship will be hugely important to AEW as it negotiates a new television deal, which is expected to begin next year. Within AEW, while many wrestlers felt that Singh’s debut was not well executed, they recognize that the decision was good from an economic standpoint. Even if you consider the debut implementation to be suboptimal and understand the criticisms of many fans, it is ultimately also about the future salaries of the talents. If Angle is successful and relations with Discovery are good, that will likely bode well for the new TV deal. Some wrestlers who have seen Satnam Singh train have told Fightful that he is doing well so far. It is said that he has been training almost every day for the last 8 months and it is believed that he will surprise a lot of people. He must also have a good attitude and a willingness to learn.

– Immediately following ‘WrestleMania 38’, Pat Buck somewhat surprisingly announced that he had given up his job as a WWE producer and left the market leader of his own free will. (We reported HERE.) Just over a week later, the 38-year-old has now signed as a producer with All Elite Wrestling. Buck has already done this work for the current “AEW Dynamite” edition.

– Three matches are confirmed for today’s live edition of “AEW Rampage”. Of course, the focus is on the Texas Deathmatch for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship between Adam Page and Adam Cole. Additionally, Ruby Soho and Robyn Renegade meet in an Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Qualifier and Blackpool Combat Club (ROH Pure Champion Wheeler Yuta, Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson) take on Gunn Club (Billy Gunn, Austin Gunn and Colten). Gunn) on.
