The first AEW on TNT tapings are taking place at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC and that event sold out within a few hours. The AEW on TNT show is live every Wednesday, so they are going to go to different cities every week. Today, they announced two big American cities in the east coast that will host the October 9 and 16 shows.
Here’s the info from AllEliteWrestling.com:
All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is excited to announce that Boston and Philadelphia will host Episode 2 & 3 of it’s two-hour weekly LIVE television show on TNT.

TJR Thoughts: They picked some big cities in the Northeast US that are known for being hot wrestling markets. Since Washington, DC sold out quickly, I think they’ll do very well in Boston and Philly as well.
We still don’t know the official name of the AEW on TNT TV show, but at least we know more about where their events are being held.
