AEW President Tony Khan had a lot on his mind going into Full Gear this year. Thankfully, the pay-per-view ended up being a huge success and Khan couldn’t be happier. However, that doesn’t mean Khan plans on increasing the number of pay-per-views the company has so far.
This year, AEW held eight different pay-per-view events, beginning with Revolution and ending with Full Gear. The company also held ROH pay-per-views this year as well, which adds to their total.
While speaking during the post-AEW Full Gear press conference, Tony Khan was asked if he plans on increasing the number of pay-per-views in the future. Khan made it clear he has no such plans.
I’ve run 5 AEW pay-per-views and 3 ROH pay-per-views and I don’t see them as necessarily competing products. If you’re asking about my own personal capacity, I think 5 is a real good number for AEW and what we we’ve done with Ring Of Honor so far with the 3 is really nice.
I think that 8 is a good number but also think it’s important to distinguish, cause we’re not doing 8 pay-per-views like AEW is doing 5 and ROH is doing 3. I see them as two separate properties.
Tony Khan also stated that Full Gear was a big show for homegrown talent. We will have to wait and see what Khan has planned for AEW’s next pay-per-view, but the company will also air plenty of specials on TNT and TBS like the upcoming Winter Is Coming event at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas on December 14th.
