AEW has announced it will be making its UK debut in 2023.
On last night's edition of AEW Dynamite (November 9), it was announced by Tony Schiavone on commentary that the wrestling company would be coming overseas for the first time ever next year.
His broadcast partner Excalibur then confirmed that there would be more details on next week's Dynamite.
Ahead of Dynamite, AEW boss Tony Khan had hinted at what was to come by sharing news of AEW's IT4 ratings.
"I promise an exciting newsworthy show on Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork TONIGHT," Khan tweeted.

Khan, who also owns Fulham FC, previously said he wanted to make the team's Craven Cottage ground AEW's UK home.
"Craven Cottage is very special to me. We put a lot into the development, redevelopment, the Riverside Stand, it's going to be amazing," he said.
"The new Craven Cottage, with all of the new amenities and facilities, and all the beautiful additions, I think would be the best home in England possible for AEW."
Meanwhile, AEW's next PPV is Full Gear which takes place on November 19 from Newark, New Jersey.
