AEW Launches Its Own Podcast, Will Be Hosted By Tony Schiavone And Aubrey Edwards

Podcasts for days...

Back in December, reports suggested All Elite Wrestling would be launching their own podcast hosted by announcer Tony Schiavone. Now, AEW has followed through as the debut episode of their new podcast AEW: UNRESTRICTED was released earlier today. The new show will indeed be hosted by Schiavone along with popular referee Aubrey Edwards.

The series launched with an interview with the Number One Contender for the AEW World Championship Jon Moxley. In the coming weeks, Cody, The Young Bucks, and Brandi Rhodes will also be featured.

The podcast will be available on all available platforms, and was seemingly brought to life by AEW President Tony Khan, who in a press release accompanying the launch, admitted he was an "avid consumer of wrestling podcasts" and establishing an AEW podcast was a "must" for him.

The full press release can be read below:

"Los Angeles, February 20, 2020 – TNT and All Elite Wrestling announced today the launch of a new weekly podcast, AEW: UNRESTRICTED. Hosted by fan favorite AEW referee Aubrey Edwards and renowned AEW broadcaster Tony Schiavone, AEW: UNRESTRICTED offers fans unique access to the stars of AEW.

Launching today, Thursday, February 20, each one-hour episode will feature Edwards and Schiavone having in-depth conversations with AEW talent, sharing personal stories that will give exclusive insight into their diverse experiences in wrestling and their lives outside the ring.

“One of the things fans love about AEW is the relatability and authenticity of their diverse group of talented athletes,” says Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president, TNT, TBS, and truTV. “AEW: UNRESTRICTED is another example of how we are creating deeper fan connections and providing a more robust, multidimensional wrestling experience.”

“I’m an avid consumer of wrestling podcasts. They’re a great way to gain insight into the best minds in the wrestling business,” says Tony Khan, president and CEO of AEW. “An AEW podcast was a must for me, and I know TNT saw it the same way. Our goal for UNRESTRICTED is to make it the best podcast in wrestling. We plan to create a new platform for our fans that will inform and entertain, and introduce a new dimension of our wrestling company, and complement the compelling storylines and great wrestling we deliver each week on DYNAMITE and DARK and at our pay-per-views.”

Initial episodes of AEW: UNRESTRICTED will feature interviews with Jon Moxley, Cody, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) and Brandi Rhodes. The podcast — produced, sold and distributed by WarnerMedia Podcast Network — is available for download on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, Google Podcasts or wherever fans download their favorite podcasts. Fans will also be able to view the podcasts in video on the TNT app and YouTube. AEW: UNRESTRICTED joins WarnerMedia Podcast Network’s growing portfolio of news, sports and entertainment podcasts."
