Since its inception in 2019, All Elite Wrestling has embarked on a dynamic journey, experiencing significant growth and inevitable growing pains. At the helm of AEW’s creative direction is Tony Khan, who single-handedly books every show. While his approach has garnered criticism, Khan remains unapologetic about his booking philosophy.

Many fans and critics argue that AEW’s recent programming lacks coherent storytelling, with matches seemingly thrown together without clear rationale. This has led to frustration among those who prefer structured narratives in wrestling.

In a recent move to address these criticisms, Tony Khan took to social media to announce several matches for upcoming episodes of AEW Collision and AEW Dynamite. In doing so, he directly responded to the backlash regarding his penchant for arranging “random” matches.

Khan’s response was both candid and revealing. He stated, “I book wrestling for the sickos because that’s what I am and that’s who I care about. #AEWDynamite #AEWRampage #AEWCollision #ForbiddenDoor”.

This declaration underscores his commitment to catering to a specific segment of the wrestling audience—those who relish unexpected and unique matchups.

Khan’s admission highlights his belief in a niche approach to wrestling entertainment, one that prioritizes the excitement of spontaneous and unconventional matches. While this strategy may not resonate with all fans, it reflects Khan’s vision of AEW as a platform for innovation and surprise.

As AEW continues to evolve, Khan’s dedication to his “sickos” underscores a willingness to embrace distinctiveness in wrestling, even if it means facing criticism from traditionalists.

Whether this approach will sustain AEW’s growth and appeal remains to be seen, but Khan’s unapologetic stance ensures that the company will continue to carve out its unique path in the wrestling world.
