During a keynote speech at the Realscreen conference in Austin, Warner Bros. Discovery's Chairperson and Chief Content Officer of US Network Group Kathleen Finch commented on the controversy airing the new Dana White series Power Slap, relating it to them airing AEW. 

Deadline.com reported Finch commenting when asked about any concerns airing Power Slap, stating, "Of course. Yes. This is an experiment. The goal is, we are making shows for our fans, that’s who we work for. Fans of wrestling have a lot of overlap with the fans of this and it’s huge on social media so the idea really is, if we can take something that’s huge on social, bring it to a linear audience giving the fans what they want. This may surprise you to know that I did not know much about wrestling before I took this job. I know, I seem like a wrestling fan, but I’m not. But I did have to learn a lot about the audience. A lot of families that watch [wrestling], I was very surprised to learn this. I have huge respect for this audience. AEW wrestling airs on two of our networks, TNT and TBS — on both nights it kills. Finding something that speaks to that audience, that would be gold."
