— The company will have a free rally on Tuesday 1/8 at 5 PM Eastern at TIAA Field, the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars – which interestingly, is very close to the Jacksonville Memorial Arena, where WWE will be holding a Smackdown live event a couple of hours later. Fans who are attending Smackdown will pretty much drive by the rally on their way to the WWE event.
— PWInsider reports that AEW is already looking at pursuing a national TV deal to air their content, potentially eyeing Tuesday nights – a spot that will be vacated by Smackdown in the fall of 2019. They are also looking at signing several talents who competed at the original All In to contracts.
