Tony Khan is a student of pro wrestling, but one of his favorite matches ever was actually produced by his own company. The other is a classic WrestleMania match that should be studied by anyone who wants to get involved in the pro wrestling business.
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, the AEW President revealed that one of his favorite matches is Kenny Omega and Hangman Page vs The Young Bucks from AEW Revolution 2020. The other is Randy Savage vs Ricky Steamboat at WrestleMania III.
“Okay, there’s two matches I go back and watch every year. One is very recent; they’re completely different. One of them is Kenny Omega and Hangman Page vs. The Young Bucks, which to me is as good a tag match as I’ve seen.
“The other is (Randy) Savage vs. (Ricky) Steamboat. I go back and watch it every year. They’re completely different; one has all the bells and whistles, one has less bells and whistles. They’re both perfect, one is my favorite tag team match, the other is my favorite singles match. So yeah; Hangman and Kenny vs. the Young Bucks and Savage and Steamboat.”
Tony Khan’s favorite matches might change as the years go on and AEW continues producing hours of new content every week. Savage vs Steamboat might be a classic match that is impossible to beat. It’s interesting that Tony Khan watches that WrestleMania III match every year as AEW continues to acknowledge the past while running head-on into the future.
