AEW President Tony Khan recently spoke with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi to promote tomorrow night’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

During the interview, Khan commented on Paige VanZant’s future in AEW, which combat sports stars he’d like to bring into AEW at some point, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the potential of Paige VanZant: “Well, she’s training as a pro wrestler but she’s very well versed in fighting and mixed martial arts and grappling. She is a natural when it comes to the charisma and the way she carries herself like a star both on television and to the live fans. She has such a great presence. She’s developing her wrestling skills. With her potential and her presence, I think there’s a real chance she could be a force to be reckoned with in pro wrestling.”


On which other combat sports stars he’d like to bring to AEW: “I’m thinking Conor McGregor or Floyd Mayweather, probably, are the two biggest draws, I think. I don’t know for sure. I’d probably say one of those two. They’re both huge stars.”


On the fluidity with AEW & ROH rosters: “I think people can look at it a little differently after we had the success with Ring of Honor’s Supercard (of Honor) because I think we’ve taken some people that have been important in AEW and presented them again now in a new light in Ring of Honor. For example, Tully Blanchard and Brian Cage together in Ring of Honor, and Tully Blanchard starting Tully Blanchard Enterprises with Cage and a new tag team, Kaun and Toa Liona.

“I think that’s a great example of how potentially there could be fluidity between the roster of AEW and Ring of Honor, which would be great for both companies.”
