AEW President Tony Khan recently discussed the acquisition of former NXT Champion Adam Cole, and why the former Undisputed Era leader was the only person in NXT who ‘scared’ him as opposition.

“I’d just like to say a statement, which is that, the Wednesday Night War is over and in the demo, I believe, out of 75 episodes, we went 74-1” Tony Khan began in a post-show debrief with media.

“[Adam Cole] is the one in 74-1. When there was a Wednesday Night War, this is the man that used to strike fear into my heart every Wednesday” Khan continued.

“This guy scared the sh*t out of me every Wednesday. There is nobody I would rather have here and it means the world that he came,” the AEW President concluded.
