Tony Khan has been teasing a major announcement for some time. The news was reported to be business-related and not another talent acquisition. Khan eventually said the announcement would be made on this week’s AEW Dynamite.

Khan typically does not appear on television when he hypes up an announcement. Tony has tried to remain off-camera during Dynamite, Rampage, and pay-per-views. This will be only the second time that Khan has appeared live on Dynamite in any capacity.

Khan appeared on Busted Open Radio today where he delivered the news. Tony will walk to the ring and make the announcement personally. AEW fans know just how rare that is.

“We’ve done 126 episodes so far and this is only going to be the second time I’ve ever gone out to the ring to talk on the show. The first time was obviously very different circumstances, it was the Brodie Lee tribute show.

It’s only under the most important circumstances that I’ll go out there. This is a very different circumstance and a more joyous occasion, certainly, and I’m really looking forward to it this time.”

News broke earlier that there was talk that Tony Khan and AEW had signed a streaming deal with HBO Max. That same report noted that AEW had acquired the rights to an international wrestling promotion’s video library. If that is what Tony is set to announce, it’s huge news for wrestling fans.
