SHAD KHAN STATEMENT ON AEW, Tuesday, January 8, 2019

I am the lead investor, a supporter and a backer of All Elite Wrestling, and I anticipate great things today and into the future for AEW and everyone who has worked passionately on this week’s launch. I know AEW will be welcomed by wrestling fans here in the U.S. and throughout the world who are ready for something new and authentic. AEW will work hard to deliver on that promise.

As important, I am the father – the proud father – of Tony Khan, who will serve in a leadership role at AEW during the 2019 launch and in the years ahead. Tony will assemble a great team to take AEW over the top, for the benefit of everyone who loves the wrestling industry, while continuing to serve in his current capacities with the Jaguars and Fulham.

AEW will operate as an organization completely independently from my other interests. It will not deter attention or divert resources from any of my businesses, teams, projects or investments. At the same time, AEW will enjoy the same full commitment I given to everything and everyone in my life – my family and friends, my business and, in recent years, to sports, hospitality and now entertainment.

TONY KHAN STATEMENT ON AEW, Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Wrestling fans are a community unlike most others. I’ve been a part of this community since I was 7 years old, and I can tell you that wresting fans see the world every day through a special lens. We see wrestling in Hollywood films and tv shows, we see elements of wrestling in the presentation of sports and in the marketing of grandiose star athletes, and we certainly see wrestling in politics.

The wrestling community is a constant; its members are diverse, we are physically located on all corners of the planet, yet we are constantly connected. Recently, a new family has formed, bonded by love and respect for wresting but armed with a vision and resources that have never before been available to the wrestling community. Our objective is to connect our community closer than ever before through All Elite Wrestling, or AEW.

AEW does not mean any less of a continued commitment to existing obligations and duties that I have, or my family has, to our business and sports interests. That will never be the case. What’s important is that every individual decision we make as family, whether it’s ownership or investment in a team or property, is 100 percent beneficial to those specific interests. I will always welcome that accountability and responsibility, as nothing is more important than serving our supporters and friends.

AEW will launch with a roster of the top wrestlers in the world. While they’ll clash in what will be some of the most intense and fast-paced contests ever sanctioned in the squared circle, they’ll also share a common goal: to make this the true golden age, to make this the greatest time ever to be a wrestling fan. Likewise, as a business, by treating our wrestlers with respect and warmth, we also seek to make this the golden age for the performers themselves.

I urge everyone who believes in what we’re doing, or wants to believe in dreams coming true, to support AEW by spreading the word and passing the wrestling bug onto someone else. My message: Get in on the ground floor with AEW today and help lead our movement to grow the wrestling community and ensure that the voices of the wrestling fans, their creative minds and their remarkable ideas, will always be heard.

Some are hit-and-miss, very meta to someone not on the track, let me tell ya something, BroJaw, things are looking up for wrestling as Tatanka v.s Lex Luger is being advertised for March. Don't know how, but maybe they will stand in the ring and tell everyone about 1993

Then you have the major partnership with AAA which has been good to both. They did 3 actual PPVs last year plus their One Night Only PPVs and Twitch specials that were usually done with other promotions.

I don't know why you say they're not doing well with live crowds. Obviously it's because you haven't seen what they are doing. Every PPV and taping had a sold paying crowd. That's alot different than letting everyone in for free at Universal.

Jericho and crew will come eventually. They are not going for a fast rebuild. They've went back to the basics and its been successful, I never thought Jericho would show up last year. That was mostly alot of internet hype from a Jericho interview.

Youíre such a muppet.

You can say I donít understand something as much as you like. It doesnít make it true or false. You donít understand general human empathy. See how easy that is?

Iíve been on the internet following wrestling for years and have barely heard of GWN. How many people actually have it? If you get five people here that do, I would be pretty surprised. Lol, getting a deal with AAA seems pretty foregone when all the good promotions go with CMLL. Sorry, I rephrase my question: How many PPVs did TNA run last year? Like, three?

I say theyíre not doing good with live attendance because I just saw a photo of about 30 people in a building with a report saying the lights go out and people were leaving. Getting a crowd of any description to pay any amount of money does not a successful live audience make.

Weíll see. I never said I thought you thought Jericho was coming in last year. I just knew he wouldnít, because even though his best friend runs it, it is toxic to star power. They might try to change that with AEW to get any attention they can, but I think it is a bad idea, because TNA fucking sucks. I know Iíll be out if TNA is in. If Kenny Omega went there, people would stop caring about him in a month. He has to know that.

Getting Janela is pretty great for AEW just from a management perspective.

Has a proven track record of being very good as a booker and having a good eye for talent based on his themed shows and making stars from irrelevance in the indies.

Dark One 01-08-2019 05:51 PM

With Jericho jumping, you have a HUGE signal to just about anyone anywhere that this is a legit option. Whether or not that's true, it's a HUGE sign of belief in it.

Can't be understated how big of a deal that is for them.

Dark One 01-08-2019 05:52 PM

Also yet another interesting bargaining chip in getting NJPW to play ball, in tandem with Omega surprising them by going "Ehhhh... I'm good man. Gonna go play with my friends." (Presumably)

Dark One 01-08-2019 05:52 PM

Not terribly surprising that Jericho jumped. He didn't make a secret of how much he loved the Being the Elite shit and his cruise and doing his own thing again. Probably an easy choice for him once he was away from WWE long enough.

Lock Jaw 01-08-2019 05:54 PM

Damn.... wish Jericho would go back to WWE and not looking "mad dumb"

Fignuts 01-08-2019 05:56 PM

YOU look mad dumb.

Dark One 01-08-2019 05:56 PM

PAC vs Page will be a hell of a match for Double or Nothing, Jericho will draw a lot of fan attention that may not already be hooked into The Elite.

SCU, The Elite guys, Page, PAC, Jericho, and even MJF is a hell of a foundation for a company starting out, and that's just a start. Production values on the press conference were kind of shit, but it's their first solo production and it was in a parking lot in Jacksonville.

Fignuts 01-08-2019 05:59 PM

Fuck if they can get Pentagon and Fenix as well, that’s gonna be an amazing roster. Hope they don’t go to impact

Dark One 01-08-2019 05:59 PM

Jericho moved the needle relatively hard for NJPW World last year, if I recall, so him being part of Double or Nothing is pretty huge.

Also, assuming Kenny does indeed go to play with his friends, we could potentially get Omega vs Jericho 2 at Double or Nothing which would be incredible.

Simple Fan 01-08-2019 06:00 PM

Pretty cool, Page vs Pac should be killer.

Yes I hope so too. Double hoping for Jericho and Pentagon to face off at Double or Nothing. Was hoping for that at Impact last year.

They had a good presser, big announcements with Pac and Jericho, and Joey Janella was a good get. Was really waiting for Kenny but time will tell. I hope that is where he ends up.

Franco Vazquez 01-08-2019 06:04 PM

Jericho is just another old part timer who needs WWE more than WWE needs him.
