AEW President Tony Khan recently spoke to the Hollywood Reporter to promote the upcoming AEW All In pay-per-view event, which will take place at the Wembley Stadium in the United Kingdom this Sunday.
During the interview, Khan was asked about heat between some AEW talents backstage.
Below is what he said:
“There may be some of them that don’t get along with each other backstage or on TV. It’s not ideal, but it’s a reality, and I can’t make everyone get along.
I’m not sure it’s necessarily even in the best interest of pro wrestling for everybody to get along. But ideally, everybody is going to be able to focus on their matches and putting on the best shows for the fans. And I think that’s what we’ve been doing.
We’ve had really strong ratings. So even though … wrestlers backstage hate each other and don’t want to be friends with each other, I think we all agree this is a really exciting time for the company. And it’s a really exciting time for the wrestling business and for the wrestling fans.
There are a lot of people around here who think they’re the best. And I think a lot of them have a valid claim that they’re the best. And what I’m trying to do is to create an environment where everybody can go out and prove it multiple times per week and create a platform where the fans can decide who the best wrestlers are, what the best rivalries are, what the best matches are.
As long as I can keep the top talent in AEW, we will have the best matches and the best big events.”
There have been problems in the AEW locker room over the past year. CM Punk isn’t on good terms with The Elite and most of the people close to them.
There were also rumors of heat between Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa last year.
