After 18 years, TNT is ready to get back in the wrestling ring.

The network will begin airing weekly matches from new professional wrestling league All Elite Wrestling (AEW) on Oct. 2, it announced today at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in L.A.

The upstart AEW will make its TNT debut just two days before WWE SmackDown Live, which had been a staple on rival network USA but will be moving to Fox, its new home for the next five years, this fall.
