AEW has changed a lot since its inception back in 2019, as the company has improved various aspects so far. The company signed many wrestlers during their initial days, but not all of them were active in AEW due to injury. Things in the company are much better now, and it seems even Tony Khan believes AEW has rebounded well from its slew of injuries this year.

Tony Khan’s company saw a difficult period of time in the past several months this year. This was largely due to the fact that quite a few of their top stars were injured and on the shelf. Many stars such as CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole and more were out of action due to injury for a long time.

The likes of Kris Statlander and others also got injured and are still recovering. While speaking to TV Insider, AEW President Tony Khan talked about the challenges AEW had to deal with due to the numerous injuries this year. Khan stated that he believes AEW has rebounded well from all the injuries.

“We had a point in the summer over a matter of weeks where we had Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and CM Punk injured. MJF left, and Jeff Hardy had an incident and was unavailable, along with other people who were out. The company really rallied over the summer. We had some great events. Simultaneously, it was a very important time for AEW because we had stars step up and a lot of the younger wrestlers step up.


We were able to rebound. I think getting Bryan Danielson back was huge for us for the 150th episode of Dynamite’s “House of the Dragon.” It was an eventful year. We crossed the million-dollar threshold for the first time and hit that multiple times. We did it five times this year. Four times consecutively on pay-per-view, as well as “Grand Slam.” We rebounded well.”

For the time being, Andrade El Idolo is still recovering from a torn pectoral muscle injury. We certainly hope AEW will not be plagued by injuries next year, as the company has finally started to gain some momentum again after so long.
