Tony Khan Reveals Why Jungle Boy Getting An AEW Title Match Wasn’t A Gamble


During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, AEW President Tony Khan commented on tonight’s AEW World Title match featuring Jungle Boy vs. Kenny Omega, why the decision to put Jungle Boy in the match wasn’t a gamble, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On deciding to have Jungle Boy win the Casino Battle Royal: “I had a feeling about a week before the match, and it just felt right. Based on the way our fans have been responding, I just knew.”

On Christian putting him over after the match: “That was a completely real moment. For Christian to give his approval to Jungle Boy, it meant that much more. You can’t say enough about what Christian did. That’s an important moment in Jungle Boy’s career.”

On his title match tonight: “He’s grown so much in his time with us, especially over the past year. It’s amazing to see what MJF and Jungle Boy have done since wrestling against each other at last year’s Double or Nothing. So putting Jungle Boy in this spot was never a gamble. He’s going to come through on Saturday night.”
