• Tony Khan Comments On Triple H & Stephanie McMahon Running WWE
The unthinkable happened this year – Vince McMahon retired. This led to Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan becoming the co-CEOs, while Triple H became the new Head of Creative.
During a recent interview with SportsGrid, AEW President Tony Khan had the following to say about this change in WWE Management:
“It’s going to change the competition, but I think that’s a good thing.
AEW’s got a big fan base. We’re on in 130 countries now around the world, and here in the US, we’ve built a great fanbase. And the competition is going to change.
It’s a different person in the chair, opposite me, but I don’t think that’s going to be a bad thing for the wrestling fan necessarily.
I think that’s always been a concern, but now probably more so than ever, I imagine great wrestlers are going to be in demand.
And again, I think this is probably going to be good for the wrestling fans because that’s one of the most exciting things about pro wrestling: free agency.
It’s one of those things that was really missing from the sport for almost two decades before AEW came in, because there was not a legitimate competitor in the free agent market, and now there is.
I think it’s going to be some exciting times ahead, hopefully for many years to come.
One of the worst things that happened, I think, in American sports in my lifetime was when WCW closed down. And there should always be another national wrestling company.”
