Tony Khan recently appeared as a guest on Bloomberg’s Business Of Sports for an in-depth interview.
During the appearance, the AEW President spoke about being in competition with WWE.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
“In some aspects they’re the market leader but in other aspects we’re now the market leader. At the beginning that may have been the case, but there were a lot of reasons that I feel that I could come in and compete. There were a lot of great wrestlers that weren’t being featured on television and there are a lot of wrestling fans out there that were looking for an alternative product that weren’t satisfied with what they were getting on those shows. So I do think there was definitely a great opportunity to come in and compete and I saw some formidability frankly in the market leader at the time and it’s opened up a lot of market shares for us, for me to bootstrap a new business and build it up and gain a lot of that market share and we’re now in a lot of significant business markets, we are the worldwide leader.”
