Tony Khan has cemented AEW’s status as the direct competitor to WWE. The promotion has seen a rapid rise to the top with many top talents in their roster. However, Tony has made it clear that he has no plans to step into the ring as a competitor as he remains focused on his management duties.
Despite the tradition of authority figures occasionally stepping inside the squared circle and getting involved in the wrestling storyline, Khan prefers to be working behind the scenes. On the latest episode of Levack and Goz podcast, Tony expressed his disinterest in getting involved in the wrestling storyline as he wants to focus on managing the trained professionals.
“I don’t think anybody really wants to see that, Not anytime soon. That’s not anything I think we’re going to do. I do think AEW has a great roster, the best wrestlers in the world. I would rather try to put the best matches and we have exciting rivalries building in AEW right now.”
Since it’s inception back in 2019, AEW has signed some of the top names in the business and rightfully claimed a place for themselves among the top in the industry. Khan’s commitment towards AEW has shown results as the promotion continues to attract huge attendance at their shows.
AEW has found great success with their flagship show, Dynamite along with their other shows like Rampage and Collision. The company is set to produce its next major pay-per-view, AEW Revolution in March 2024. Fans are anticipating action-packed match-ups at the event. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more!
