All Elite Wrestling (AEW) President Tony Khan was recently interviewed by Wrestling Inc. at the AEW rally in Florida. Khan was asked about the stacked roster AEW has amassed, the different deals that will be made available to different people involved in the company, and wrestlers’ travel schedules. Check out the highlights here:
AEW’s roster: “I think we’ve got a great roster of people here,” Khan said, “And to have Chris Jericho, PAC, Cody and the Young Bucks, Hangman Page, The Elite, Brandy [Rhodes], Britt Baker, Penelope, some top women performers, and MJF was here, too!”
Different deals and benefits for people with different levels of responsibilities within the company: “Different people, depending on their level of responsibility within the company, will have different deals,” Khan said. “And I think that there’s a great opportunity for people to gain full-time employment in this company, not just as a wrestler, but also in the front office.
“And I think that there were already a lot of people that were very integral in the production today, and getting all these people here, and putting on, what I think, was an exciting first night for us. We already have a lot of people involved and we’ll definitely be taking care of our employees.”
Wrestlers’ travel schedule: “And also favorable schedules, and I don’t wanna run down guys with too many dates or too much time on the road,” Khan said. “I feel really positive about what we’re doing in terms of taking care of the guys.
“We have great management and the guys we’re focusing it on, Cody and the Bucks, they are very, very hands on with the talent. And I’m sure, for us, the kind of people we’re bringing in, they’re gonna contribute to the company in a number of ways.
“And I think that, yeah, there is a package, a competition package and healthcare package that could be available.”
