It is no secret that many have compared All wrestling elite to world wrestling championship Since the company led by Tony Khan made its debut on TNT in 2019. Recently, questions have emerged about whether or not AEW is sustainable in its current form, with talks about Warner Bros. Discovery and Their Relationship With the wrestling company being a point of interest in terms of speculation. However, regardless of how things turn out on that front, Khan plans to keep running AEW “forever” if he can, according to his interview on wrestling radio.
“I will never put myself in a position where we have to sell this business for as long as I am alive,” Khan said confidently.
Khan also commented that he thinks comparisons between AEW and WCW are often inconsistent. “It’s not even an apples-and-apples comparison with Eric Bischoff’s WCW,” the AEW president explained. “He had a lot of things working against him [like] To be owned by another company and not be able to make his own decisions for the sustenance of promotion.”
Khan prefers to compare his vision for the future of AEW with Jim Crockett Promotions (JCP), a company known to be a family-owned organization. “At the end of the day, my goal, I’m going to compare this to like Jim Crockett Promotions,” Khan admitted, later explaining that AEW is “a family business.”
While Khan praised JCP’s work style, he remains wary of the things that eventually forced the Crockett family to it Company sold to Ted Turner in 1988. “I don’t want to end up like Crockett Promotions and end up in someone else’s hands,” Khan said. “This is a family business. Their company has been around for a long time, but some mismanagement… and you see what can happen.”
