Appearing on a recent edition of the “Payne & Pendergast” podcast, AEW President Tony Khan gave his thoughts on the deal that WWE and Netflix reached to move Monday Night RAW to the streaming service in January 2025 and whether the deal lifts the world of wrestling.
Khan said, “Absolutely. We’re excited to get big media rights renewals in the wrestling business. That’s great to see for everybody. We’re in a big contract year, too, and I think AEW is going to get big media rights. Right now, we have a great partnership on TBS and TNT that I want to continue for a long time. We’ve been on since 2019, it’s five years now we’re going on TBS and TNT, and it’s been great and I want to keep it going because there is a great tradition of wrestling on those channels.”
