Tony Khan has made a few big purchases in his life, and he continues offering big deals to stars that he thinks will help their company. It appears that buying ROH really paid off in big way.
AEW never had rights to All In, because ROH produced the show. That changed when Tony Khan bought ROH in a huge deal that shocked many fans. Now, it seems that it was worth his money, so he could secure All In.
AEW Unrestricted at Starrcast recently had Tony Khan on as a guest, and he revealed something very interesting. Although he was criticized for buying ROH, the face that he was able to hold All In London brought in “several times” the price that he paid for Ring of Honor.
“It is part of our video library. When I purchased Ring of Honor, Ring of Honor produced the show, I was able to buy the tape in the sale, which was a very lucrative part of the sale.”
“In fact, the gate for Wembley Stadium at All In was several times the price of the entire company. I got quite a steal, to say the least.”
All In London 2 was announced for August 25th, 2024 before the first Wembley Stadium show wrapped up. Obviously, Tony Khan was working fast to get that done when their tickets exploded out of the box office with over 80,000 fans.
That AEW All In London attendance number was legit as well, so the company has a lot to be proud of. Even though CM Punk and Jack Perry’s little backstage skirmish stole a lot of attention, Tony Khan is still moving onward with his company.
