WWE brought WrestleMania to Raymond James Stadium this year for two nights of a sports entertainment extravaganza. Despite WWE’s best efforts, Tony Khan believes that AEW’s Double or Nothing event beat out the showcase of the immortals.
While speaking on Pardon My Take, Tony Khan made a bold claim. While putting over AEW in a huge way, TK stated that his belief is that All Elite Wrestling beat out Vince McMahon’s company’s biggest show of the year.
“I’ll tell you something; Double or Nothing last year and this year, in my opinion, was a better show (than WrestleMania). I liked this year’s WrestleMania a lot better than last years. They had some fans this year and everyone there worked their ass off both years. This year I thought, both (were) good shows. They did a two night show and it was a good show. But I thought Double or Nothing this year was outstanding and it was the best wrestling show of the year so far. And last year Double or Nothing, during the pandemic, it kicked the sh*t out of WrestleMania last year. The pandemic version last year? Not even close. Double or Nothing was a much better show.”
Tony Khan will continue putting over his company however he can. He will obviously remain very proud of his accomplishments, but there is also no way that WWE’s biggest show of the year could stack up to what his company brought to the table.
AEW and WWE are in the same marketplace and they are bound to be compared to each other. We’ll have to see if the fan sentiment agrees with Tony Khan’s statements as they are likely to be considered a bit controversial.
