Since its debut on October 2nd, 2019, AEW Dynamite has been arguably the most consistent weekly episodic wrestling TV across the United States, and it now appears that AEW themselves are aiming to recieve some recognition for their successes.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently revealed that AEW are attempting to have Dynamite nominated for an Emmy award in the Outstanding Structured Reality Program category, although Meltzer then shoots down the shows chances, noting that WWE have also attempted to receive a nomination in recent years to no avail.
“AEW is attempting to get nominated this year (it won’t happen) for an Emmy award for Dynamite on the Outstanding Structured Reality Program category. In the past WWE has attempted to get nominated for Emmy Awards for Raw but was never successful. They did not attempt to do so this year”– Dave Meltzer
Emmy nominations are expected to be announced on July 12th, and should AEW receive a nomination, they’ll have a mammoth task at hand dethroning Queer Eye for the title, with the show recieving the award for the past four years running.
This past Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite saw a number of top NJPW stars make appearances, such as Will Ospreay, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and the debuting Kazuchika Okada, with the Forbidden Door PPV just two days away.
