AEW strives to be an alternative to the product that WWE has been putting out for decades. The company has certainly made its mark in the pro wrestling industry. Tony Khan also believes AEW has closed the gap with WWE.

The pro wrestling world is more competitive than ever thanks to AEW’s massive success in the past year or so. The company continues to turn heads at every opportunity thanks to its various events.

While speaking with Tokyo Sports, AEW President Tony Khan talked about AEW’s growth. Khan stated that he believes AEW has closed the gap with WWE.

“There was a big difference at first, but as a result of efforts, the difference in audience mobilization is closing and the audience rating is also increasing. I think the good thing about us is that we have achieved international growth in a short period of time.


AEW shows can be seen in 130 countries around the world, and the relationship with New Japan has strengthened my position in Japan. That led to the joint entertainment. The birth of AEW was a great stimulus for the professional wrestling world, and I think it had a positive impact.”

AEW is currently busy with a lot of huge shows coming up, especially with the Forbidden Door crossover, even with NJPW. We will have to wait and see whether AEW will grow more and become better competition for WWE.
