Tony Khan Post-AEW Dynamite Media Scrum (10/2/2019)

Tony Khan Takes Shot at WWE: “NYC is Real Crown Jewel Not Some BS Overseas in Saudi Arabia”

— Ahead of Wednesday’s Grand Slam episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan spoke to News 12 and discussed running events in the US Northeast, calling it the “crown jewel” of wrestling markets and taking a direct shot at WWE’s using that term for their event in Saudi Arabia:

“We’re running a lot of great shows around the Northeast. It’s so many great wrestling markets in one geographic region. And hey, I’ll say it: the crown jewel of wrestling markets – the real crown jewel of wrestling markets, not some BS overseas in Saudi Arabia. The real crown jewel of wrestling markets, New York City, is where you want to be.”

“You can’t be a wrestling fan without loving New York City, without having this great connection to the fans up here. And really, just New York City alone is an amazing market but as you said it’s surrounded by so many great markets that are driving distance and there are so many great fans up here and it’s a great opportunity to grow our live events business. So we’re doing more events up here than ever before and more big events, like you said, Grand Slam this week Wednesday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium and of course next week in Philadelphia.”
