Tony Khan promised a sports-centric alternative in pro wrestling when he was building the hype around AEW in 2019. The promotion stayed true to Khan’s vision by featuring lengthy matches.
AEW tested a different approach for this past Wednesday’s edition of Dynamite by giving segments and promos more air time but that didn’t sit well with AEW fans, many of whom called out Tony Khan on social media.
Tony Khan took to Twitter on Friday and explained why the September 28, 2022, edition of Dynamite featured lengthy promos and segments. Check out his tweet below.
Wednesday’s #AEWDynamite after #GrandSlam was the first Dynamite with 3 lengthy live promo segs in one show since 12/9/20 following #WinterIsComing. Both 12/9/20 + this week needed these promos to follow up on newsworthy supercards; I promise we won’t lose focus on the wrestling!
