AEW President Tony Khan has lot of passion for professional wrestling and is truly living his dream as the owner of AEW. In its first three years, AEW held several events in the Northeastern US, and according to Khan, this helped them save a significant sum of money.

Khan was asked about scheduling so many events in the Tri-State region, around New York City, where WWE has its headquarters, during the AEW Full Gear media call on Wednesday. According to TK, All Elite Wrestling saved millions of dollars in between Grand Slam and Full Gear, which were both big financial successes.

“You know, frankly, there were major cost savings that people might not think about in routing everything mostly in the Northeast. And that’s why there has been so many shows in the Northeast recently, because we’ve saved millions of dollars between Grand Slam and Full Gear which were both big financial successes, you know, million dollar tent pole shows. And we saved millions of dollars in between those shows by routing everything in-between. And that’s kind of a cost savings [situation]. And now moving West, I’m really excited to move the show West too. But New York, New Jersey makes perfect sense to do PPVs, and it’s good timing for us to have one of our biggest PPV shows [here].”

Khan also noted that he was interested in moving to the West, with shows scheduled for Texas, Colorado, Oregon, and California. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
