Khan clears up rumours that all AEW performers will have health coverage. He points out that a number of performers are still independent contractors, but multiple AEW performers will also have office jobs, and he will be providing all of those employees with health care packages. In regards to equal pay for men and women, he notes that some stars will earn more, but base pay will be same for men and women.
Khan notes that the biggest challenge surrounding this venture will be providing a compelling product every week. In the long term his goal is to make AEW a profitable business, noting that it’s going to take a lot of work but they’re all up to the challenge.
In terms of how AEW came together, he points out that all parties involved basically made a blood oath with each other, guaranteeing that they’re all going to give 100% to make this work. He also points out that he’s grateful for his father who has financed the project, adding that his father doesn’t invest in something if he doesn’t believe it in.
Khan points out that he can’t talk about specifics regarding television deals, but he confirms that there are multiple interested parties in AEW’s television rights.
