All Elite Wrestling (AEW) president Tony Khan was recently interviewed by Wade Keller to discuss several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
NXT going head-to-head with AEW:
It was like when you’re playing an NFL team and you know they’re about to run the ball, and then they run the ball. There was, you know, if I was 90% sure in this situation they were gonna run and they ran it, then I would be like ‘Yeah, they ran the ball. Not surprised.’ And they ran the ball, I’m not surprised. This is what I’ve expected for over a year. You know, we’ve been working on this a long time, I’ve put a lot of thought into this, and I always expected that we would be going against NXT.
If they would’ve moved NXT to Tuesdays to go head-to-head:
Yeah, I think so. I don’t know that for a fact, but that’s what I expect. But I could be wrong, but we ended up on Wednesday and we were doing Wednesdays. They ended up making other changes to what they’d been doing as far as broadcasting the show and streaming the show. So I have to think it would have been on the table to do something on Tuesday. In fact, it might have even made more sense to do something on Tuesday given the audience they’re leaving on the table tonight [on Wednesday].
