AEW President Tony Khan recently appeared on Le Batard and Friends – South Beach Sessions  The owner of All Elite discussed several topics during the interview, including how pro wrestling has got hotter as an industry due to the creation of All Elite.

“The wrestling business has gotten hotter as a result of the launch of AEW, and I think a lot of the stuff I said in year one was validated through the way we carried ourselves on the launch of Dynamite and through the pandemic” Tony Khan began.

“I tried to do the right things by a lot of people through the pandemic, whether it was not executing mass layoffs and letting all my people go when we lost all the ticket revenue, and I ate those costs personally” Khan revealed.

“And then you look at what we did in terms of AEW Elevation and before that AEW Dark, those shows on YouTube through the summer was the home of so many independent wrestlers. And when independent wrestling was shut down, the only paying gig was Dark.”

“It was the best of both worlds” Tony Khan stated, “because it was a chance to go out and make some money and have a chance to get exposure on the internet for hundreds of 1000s of people on YouTube.”
