Tony Khan has gained a lot of attention for his passion and dedication to professional wrestling. He has established himself as an authentic fan and enthusiast of the sport, and this genuine love for wrestling has connected with fans. Additionally, as the mastermind behind AEW, he has been praised for his leadership and decision-making skills, which have earned him further admiration and respect from the wrestling community. Being a man of many roles in AEW, it comes as no surprise that he helped produce a match on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Tony Khan is a multifaceted figure in AEW, taking on roles as the owner, booker, and occasional producer. Recent notes for the February 22 episode of AEW Dynamite reveal that Tony’s involvement extends beyond the significant announcement of Adam Cole’s upcoming announcement.
According to Sean Ross Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, Tony Khan and Pat Buck were listed as the producers of the Revolution Tag Team Battle Royale. The match featured Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal winning, leading them to join the upcoming The Gunns and The Acclaimed at AEW Revolution on March 5 in a fatal four-way tag team match.
The fourth team for the match will be decided in a Casino Battle Royale on the March 1 episode of AEW Dynamite. Here are the other producers for all segments and matches on last week’s show.
Dustin Rhodes produced Orange Cassidy vs Wheeler Yuta
The Ricky Starks & Chris Jericho segment was produced by QT Marshall
Big Bill & Lee Moriarty vs The Acclaimed was produced by Jerry Lynn.
BJ Whitmer produced Saraya vs Skye Blue
Jon Moxley vs Evil Uno was produced by Dean Malenko.
Pat Back also produced the Bryan Danielson & MJF promo in which the AEW World Champion revealed a real-life relationship split with reported embellishments for “the sake of the promo”
The Jungle Boy & Christian segment was listed as “possible live segment” and didn’t have a producer attached.
Chris Jericho also recently explained why Tony Khan rarely makes appearances on AEW television. We will have to wait and see what the AEW President has in store for fans in the coming weeks.
