ALL ELITE WRESTLING: AEW loses major ally at Warner as TNT/TBS General Manager exits merged company


Posted on 5/12/122 by Colin Vassallo



Brett Weitz, the General Manager of TNT,
TBS, & truTV who helped AEW expand their
footprint on WarnerMedia, is transitioning
out of his current role within the next 30
days according to Deadline.com.

Weitz helped AEW get their Rampage show on
the air as well as the Battle of the Belts
specials and was instrumental in the
network’s negotiations with Tony Khan’s
promotion. This is considered a major loss
for AEW as they lost a big ally within the
network.

His departure is due to the Discovery-
WarnerMedia merger and his position was
eliminated because of restructuring.

Weitz is also credited for the launch of
Snowpiercer, the revival of Wipeout,
Impractical Jokers, and other shows. He has
been with the company for the past 14 years.

Warner Bros. Discovery will be doing their
2022-2023 Upfront presentation at the Hulu
Theater at Madison Square Garden on May 18
and AEW is expected to be part of that.
