Following a successful pay-per-view on Saturday night, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Co-Owner and President Tony Khan spoke with reporters in attendance for a post-Double Or Nothing media scrum.
During the interview, Khan spoke about Cody Rhodes and AEW taking a shot at WWE Executive Vice President (EVP) Paul “Triple H” Levesque during Saturday night’s PPV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We all just want to do the best shows,” said Khan. “If for any of us, it fuels our fire, the competition, that’s great. For me, I’m just trying to do the best shows possible.”
Khan continued, “I’m not really thinking about their shows and I hope their shows are great because at the best times in wrestling, honestly, everyone was doing great stuff because there was a time 20 years ago where all the shows were great. Maybe 21 years ago. 1998 was a really good year. I think we can get there again.”
From there, Khan discussed AEW’s deal with Warner Media Group, which calls for a two-hour weekly AEW television show on TNT.
“I’m so excited when we get to weekly,” Khan said of AEW’s TV deal with TNT. “We’ve done a show that now we can hang our hat on, we’ve done one of the great wrestling PPVs, but I’m really excited to get to weekly.”
Khan concluded, “It’s just going to be a better quality of life.”
