Tony Khan: The Shows WWE Have Been Doing Are Generally Better Than Before, It’s Good For Wrestling

Only July 22, Vince McMahon retired as CEO of WWE, leading to Triple H assuming all creative duties in the company.

Since taking over creative, Triple H has brought back Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, and Dexter Lumis and has made minor changes to the product that fans have been excited for.

Speaking to Josh Martinez on Superstar Crossover, Tony Khan was asked about new challenges WWE presents under Triple H compared to Vince McMahon.

“The challenge would be, and I’d like to say something positive on the end too, the challenge would be is that we’re more likely to compete for the same wrestlers because our vision of wrestling is probably a bit closer together than with his predecessor. I do think there are a lot of advantages. The shows they’ve been doing are generally better than the shows they were doing before the change, which is good for the wrestling business. It’s a little bit different than what we were going up against before. In terms of me being the CEO of AEW, I see some positives and some negatives, but I see a lot of positives. There are a lot reasons why it could drive some interest in wrestling and people coming back to watch more wrestling and those people are inherently going to most likely also check out AEW. If you’ve been away from wrestling and you’re a big fan of it, then there’s a good chance you’re very familiar with a lot of the top stars of AEW, including the world champion CM Punk, the in term champion Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, Bryan Danielson, and many others. Somebody stepping back in and watching wrestling again would have a lot of interest in that. Frankly, if you’re interested in good wrestling shows, those are people you’re going to be interested in checking out. There are a lot of interesting possibilities for the future. Sure, it poses some challenges, but I think there are a lot of positive things happening in wrestling right now,” he said.

CM Punk returned to AEW television on Wednesday, getting face-to-face with Jon Moxley, who had just defeated Chris Jericho.

Elsewhere during the interview, Khan addressed rumors of unhappiness in the AEW locker room. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
