Tony Khan is very pleased with the way AEW is performing. The company connects to its fanbase unlike the competition in Stamford, and Khan is more than thrilled about their results. He saw the ratings for AEW Dynamite Grand Slam and he is expecting big things for Rampage tonight.
AEW Rampage Grand Slam will air on TNT tonight at 10:00 PM EST. Interestingly enough Rampage will remain on TNT despite Dynamite’s move to TBS.
TK sent out two tweets to tout AEW’s success versus a company that had a 40-year head start. He didn’t name WWE specifically, but it was pretty obvious what company Khan was talking about.

AEW Rampage Grand Slam was a pre-taped event. If you want spoilers, you can check those out here. It was still a fantastic two-hour event complete with CM Punk vs Powerhouse Hobbs to start out the show.
