All Elite Wrestling confirmed the news by posting a statement, along with an image of Orange Cassidy, on their official twitter account:
"#AEWDYNAMITE WILL AIR AS USUAL THIS WEDNESDAY 8pm EST on @TNTDRAMA (Yes, caps weren't necessary. But, here's a picture of @orangecassidy for no reason)."
Previously, there was uncertainty as to what day AEW Dynamite would air this week due to the ongoing coverage of then NBA playoffs on TNT.
There had been plans for AEW to air a one-hour episode of Dynamite on Wednesday following the NBA playoff coverage on TNT. This would then be followed by the full two-hour episode of Dynamite on Thursday.
However, AEW Dynamite will now air, as usual on Wednesday night. WWE NXT will also air on Wednesday night for the first time in two weeks too. This means that AEW Dynamite and NXT will be going head-to-head once again, as the Wednesday Night Wars resumes.
