Tony Khan: Twitter users have given me a lot of ideas

AEW President Tony Khan spoke about Elon Musk and the impact of Twitter on the Swerve City podcast “No, my dad knows [Elon] really well. I don’t know him at all, my dad knows him from the automobile business. I think they’ve interacted a number of times, I don’t know him,” he said as quoted by wrestlinginc.

"I think Twitter is really important for pro wrestling, there’s a really big network of people. Fans, and obviously wrestlers, and people in the business and around the business. “All kinds of people unite and bond every week over wrestling on Twitter, every day.

Honestly, the fact is Twitter is a place with a lot of engagement, and I think we should embrace, for us, that for wrestling there are a lot of people who care about wrestling on there, wrestlers and fans. They have found a really special connection, and it holds up every single week where wrestling is the top trending thing on the platform on a Wednesday night and a Friday night”.

Twitter ideas

There are a lot of those things that Tony Khan used from Twitter. “I do think we get good ideas from it, being connected with the fans and the other wrestlers. You get ideas. Not every idea is possible, sometimes there are good ideas you just can’t do,” he said.

“There’s probably, with one or two wrestlers alone, there’s probably 76, 78 different opponents that they could have, but there are only so many people you can wrestle, especially at the same time. “I think you do get great ideas from there, and how do you incorporate them? But there are some simple things like I saw somebody saying we should use the moving graphics for the PPV.

I was going to shoot Punk and Hangman for their match this past week. But then Hangman had COVID so he was out, so we are going to shoot him next week. But we shot Punk, and people were really excited, and it was this guy [on Twitter]. I told him it was a good idea”.
