• AEW Promoter Tony Khan Is Glad That WCW Failed
Tony Khan started his own professional wrestling promotion, All Elite Wrestling, in 2019 and has succeeded in positioning the company as the #2 Wrestling promotion behind WWE, a position similar to what Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (including its predecessor Jim Crockett Promotions) held from the early 80s till Vince McMahon bought them in March of 2001.
During a recent interview with Forbes, Khan revealed that he’s actually glad that WCW failed.
Here’s what the AEW promoter had to say:
“I’m glad that WCW failed because it created a vacancy for us to come in and succeed, but it made it a fairly bleak period for the wrestling business.”
