During today’s AEW Double or Nothing 2023 media conference call, AEW President Tony Khan addressed the competition between AEW and rival wrestling promotions.
According to Khan, competition has always been “ethical on the other side.”
For instance, AEW Double Or Nothing 2023 takes place this Sunday, the same day as NXT Battleground 2023.
You can check out some highlights from the media call below:
On competition in wrestling that has ethical standards: “It’s been that feeling from day one, since we launched a TV show. It actually, probably changed a little bit on April 14, 2021, and now with this, it feels like the old days in some ways. I’m always very eager to compete in whatever arena I’m in. I really love the competition in pro wrestling as long as it’s done with some ethical standards. People running events at some similar times, I don’t know if that’s necessarily unethical. I don’t have a big problem with it.”
On his expectations for Sunday: “I wish everybody the best, and I expect we will do the best show on Sunday. I think there will be a big audience for AEW Double or Nothing. Certainly, the spirit of competition is something we’ve dealt with since the launch of AEW, and I have never really had any problem with it as long as it’s an ethical competition, and I don’t think it has always been coming from the other side.”
