ALL ELITE WRESTLING DYNAMITE/TNT: WarnerMedia executive Kevin Reilly who green-lit AEW on TNT removed from position as part of corporate shakeup

Posted on 8/08/120 by Colin Vassallo

Kevin Reilly, the man who green-lit All Elite Wrestling
while serving as President of TNT and TBS, has been removed
from his position at WarnerMedia.

Reilly joined Bob Greenblatt, the Chairman of WarnerMedia
who oversaw HBO, Cinemax, TBS, TNT, and TruTV, out of the
door in a major shakeup in the organization that has sent
shock waves in the industry.

How this affects All Elite Wrestling moving forward remains
to be seen although its unlikely to change things for now
as AEW is doing pretty damn good for TNT. The promotion was
supposed to get a third hour on television for a second show
and Cody said that internal confirmation was expected within
a month.

Losing a key ally like Reilly is a big blow for AEW
President Tony Khan, considering that the birth of All Elite
Wrestling came during a conversation the two had a couple of
years ago.
