AEW Dark is a professional wrestling web television program that is produced by the American promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and airs on their YouTube channel. The show is hosted in studio by Tony Schiavone[1][2] and Dasha Gonzalez.

History[edit]

On October 2, 2019 AEW Dynamite premiered on TNT. During the event there were four dark matches, two before and two after the live broadcast.[3] During the media scrum following this event, AEW founder Tony Khan stated that the dark matches would become available in some way. On October 5, AEW Executive Vice President Cody announced Dynamite's sister program, AEW Dark, which began airing on Tuesdays on AEW's YouTube channel on October 8, with the exception announced on November 6 episodes taped at go-home shows will air Fridays before the pay-per-view.[4][5][6]

During the November 5 episode, Tony Schiavone announced AEW Spanish commentator Dasha Gonzalez would be his co-host going forward.[7]
