AEW President Tony Khan is not happy with the moves of WWE leaders. Namely, WWE held two premium live events over the Labor Day weekend, which frustrated Khan. Relations between AEW and WWE seem to be not equally good. “I’ve had a number of interactions with [WWE].
I’ve said a lot of nice stuff, and I don’t regret saying nice stuff because I’m super honest about pro wrestling. And when I saw good stuff there. I’ll be the first to say it. I am just not feeling the same love…I don’t want to get into it.
I just haven’t felt the same reciprocation from them,”- he said, as quoted by PWmania.com
Tony Khan on AEW and WWE
Tony Khan believes that some things are not a coincidence. He is willing to give his last atom of strength to help AEW become #1.
“There’s a big difference between this year and last year. We were the first professional wrestling show and the only professional wrestling show on Labor Day weekend last year. We were the third professional wrestling show of the weekend this year.
I don’t think that’s a coincidence. And when I talk about things I wasn’t thrilled about, I was a little surprised we were the third professional wrestling show this weekend, and it’s probably a little bit more challenging in the marketplace when it becomes a little more crowded.
So our performance…in prior years, we never had this kind of competition. This was kind of a first for us in AEW to see this kind of a crowded marketplace. I’m not sure if this is what we’ll see from now on.
If it is, when the fight is brought, I will continue to bring a fight of my own. I have unique ways to do that. I have a lot of money to fight with. This is not a game to me. This is my life, and I don’t think it is a joke. I take it very seriously”.
