Tony Khan is making the media rounds to promote AEW’s Sunday pay-per-view All Out. Naturally, fans want so hear about the backstage issues in his company. While the AEW President has maintained silence over this matter, he now has something to tell the world.
While discussing the matter with NBC Chicago, Khan said that if not everyone is friendly, and they don’t have to be in pro wrestling. Tony said that the first word is “professional,” and the second word is “wrestling.”
Tony has been dropping hints without giving anything out to the fans and wrestling experts. He believes that if not all wrestlers like each other, that’s fine with him.
“I’m actually pretty excited about it. I think our roster is going to be stronger than it’s been in a long time. There is a lot of competition for spots.
“People not liking each other, not getting along, can actually be positive, as opposed to most workplaces where people not getting along is detrimental.
“Not everybody needs to get along in the pro wrestling business, they don’t all need to be friends to do this.
“I’ll be honest, a lot of pro wrestlers don’t like each other, that’s fine with me. I don’t think people watch wrestling to watch people be friends.”
While not getting along can be detrimental in other workspaces, Khan thinks it works well in the wrestling business. Khan seems excited about how the roster will look stronger in the long term.
This thought comes at a time when AEW’s All Out show is on its way on September 4th. Only time will tell what the AEW locker room will look like in a year from now.
