AEW has seen substantial development and undergone various changes, experiencing growth across multiple facets of its business. Tony Khan has now made a bold prediction regarding its growth by 2025.

Annually, the company has observed growth, whether in the expansion of talent, enhanced production values, or other aspects. They have also increased the number of pay-per-view events over the years.

During the media call before AEW Revolution 2024, Tony Khan spoke to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Khan emphasized that the company’s significant opportunity lies in the renewal of media rights, expecting substantial increases for Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision.

Expressing confidence in this aspect, Khan predicted that 2025 would mark the year where AEW transitions from a startup to an established challenger player in professional wrestling, achieving this milestone in just five years as outlined in the initial plan.


“The biggest opportunity lies in the media rights renewal, where Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision will all be getting huge, huge increases, I can say for sure. Going into that and having that confidence, I think ’25 is going to go down as the year where AEW really took the leap from being a start-up company to being the established challenger player in pro wrestling for decades to come and establishing all of that in basically five years, that was the five-year plan.”

AEW could also be planning to add another pay-per-view event this year for good measure. We will have to wait and see whether Tony Khan’s bold prediction will come true in 2025.
