As noted, Tony Khan recently appeared on Bloomberg’s Business of Sports podcast for an in-depth interview.
In addition to the highlights we recently published from the interview here on the website, the AEW President also offered high praise for fans of the promotion during the appearance.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic.
“We got a great fan base and that’s really the star of the show. The wrestling fans make this all possible and we really brought one of the most exciting stars in wrestling into AEW and we’ve also built one of the most exciting young stars in wrestling. So really I feel when it began we introduced a lot of new stars and then I tried to go out and sign top names and bring together one of the best possible roster. It’s a really diverse roster, diverse life experiences, diverse backgrounds and really people of all different ages and experience levels and the star power of the AEW roster is now unparalleled. We have the most star power of any wrestling roster which is not how it started. Really just a lot of elbow grease. Very, very big name stars and really young wrestlers. The depth of the roster and the amount of huge hall of fame stars that we have.”
