Daniel Bryan interview highlights

Tony Khan Reveals What Excites Him Most About AEW ALL OUT 2022, Bryan Danielson’s Return & More

Tony Khan recently spoke with Yahoo! Sports for an in-depth interview to promote the upcoming AEW ALL OUT 2022 pay-per-view.

During the discussion, the AEW President spoke about top stars dealing with injuries, Bryan Danielson’s return and excitement ahead of AEW ALL OUT 2022 on Sunday night.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On dealing with a number of injuries to his top stars: “We felt like things were really clicking and then boom, we lose Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson on the same night to injury and CM Punk gets hurt not long after. It all happened in the matter of about a week. The summer was way different than what we had planned, but thankfully we had Jericho and Mox back.”

On what it meant to get Bryan Danielson back: “It was great to get Danielson back at the end of July after he had been gone for a few months and he has been a huge part of the show since he returned. He had a great comeback match with Daniel Garcia — it was more than a great match, I believe it was a star-making bout for Garcia. We built something really cool around ‘The American Dragon’ versus the ‘Dragon Slayer.’ It was a classic and one of my favorite matches we ever had on Dynamite. I think it showed that we can adapt and work to be a really good partner for Warner Bros. Discovery and promote their projects.”

On revealing what excites him the most about ALL OUT: “The goal is to strike a balance between having happy fans, good stories and a happy locker room. I think for the most part we do have that. I think the really exciting thing about All Out and this week for AEW is that we are approaching a full-strength roster again. It felt like last year we kicked off a season — it was a wild, tumultuous, one — but we had some of our greatest business heights. It has been challenging but I do believe this will wind up being one of our greatest pay-per-views.”
