How to watch All Elite Wrestling online
All Elite Wrestling – AEW –has proved to be not just an alternative to WWE, but a success in its own right. The grappling comes thick and fast, and there are plenty of ways to tune in. We'll show to you how to watch AEW live stream below, including how to watch AEW free online, from anywhere in the world.
What is AEW wrestling?
Founded by Tony Khan and his father Shahid Khan in January 2019, All Elite Wrestling is the fastest growing promotion in professional wrestling. After AEW's first pay-per-view, Double or Nothing, in May 2019, the promotion was quick to launch its first weekly TV show, AEW Dynamite, the following October.
Nowadays, the Khan-led organisation has AEW Dynamite airing each and every Wednesday, AEW Rampage airing each and every Friday, and now AEW Collision airing each and every Saturday. There are also quarterly Battle of the Belts TV specials, which offer up a one-hour show full of championship matches.
In addition to its television output, AEW has historically run four of its own Pay-Per-Views per year; those being AEW Revolution in March, AEW Double or Nothing in May, AEW All Out in September, and AEW Full Gear in November.
On top of those traditional four PPVs, AEW has also produced crossover shows with New Japan Pro-Wrestling in the form of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door; a PPV which has run in June for the past two years. In 2023, AEW will deliver its first ever UK event, with the All In PPV taking place from London's Wembley Stadium on August 27.
