• Tony Khan Names A Surprising Program As One Of AEW’s Biggest Draws
During a recent interview with PWInsider, AEW President Tony Khan addressed the criticism towards the booking of former NXT Champion Adam Cole in All Elite Wrestling.
Below is what Tony said:
“The Adam Cole that’s here has main evented numerous Dynamites and Rampages, has been one of our biggest drawing wrestlers.
The Adam Cole vs. Orange Cassidy program is one of the biggest drawing programs we’ve ever had in the history of AEW. They have done big numbers on every show they’ve been on. And it’s been a big part of our rating success in recent months, has been the matches they did with each other.
Before Orange Cassidy and the Best Friends, Adam Cole wrestled a number of matches also against Jungle Boy. He beat Jungle Boy. Of course, Orange Cassidy and Jungle Boy, both number one contenders. He beat both of them and he’s beaten everybody else he’s wrestled in a sanctioned match. Including a lot of main events.
So wherever he’s been before this, he’s never been presented to as wide of an audience as consistently as a main event wrestler.”
Cole will most likely be going after the AEW World Championship now.
On this week’s Dynamite, after “Hangman” Adam Page defeated Lance Archer in a bloody Texas Death Match to retain the AEW World Title, Cole came to the ring and put the belt on Page’s shoulder.
