• Tony Khan Reveals His Picks For AEW’s Top 3 Storylines Of All Time
During an interview on Rasslin’, AEW President Tony Khan gave his picks for the top 3 storylines in All Elite Wrestling so far.
Below are his picks:
– CM Punk vs. MJF
– Kenny Omega vs. “Hangman” Adam Page
– Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. vs. Thunder Rosa
Here’s what Tony said:
“[CM Punk vs. MJF] is arguably right there, that is also a long-term story. And certainly with the fans there, that has been the best. But I think going back even further and longer, before that we had seen Kenny Omega and Hangman Page from the very first episodes of AEW Dynamite. That’s where they first teamed in Philadelphia, the third-ever episode of the show.
And through the pandemic, it was such a huge part of our fabric. They were the Tag Team Champions through the pandemic and then split up.
The first eliminator tournament was Kenny vs. Hangman for the first time since they’d been champions, where they met in the final at Full Gear 2020, a great show in front of a socially distanced crowd. So, it’s a long story.
Certainly, in recent AEW history, I think definitely right there CM Punk vs. MJF Dog Collar match, along with Kenny Omega vs. Hangman Page. Also, Dr. Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa, which is a story that went over a year. I think those would probably be, certainly on the Mt. Rushmore, the three up front.
Certainly, two that involved the World Title, with Dr. Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa, which culminated, and didn’t first involve the title when they started wrestling at Beach Break 2021, and St. Patrick’s Day Slam.
A year later at St. Patrick’s Day Slam 2022, in Texas, it culminated for the biggest win of Thunder Rosa’s career, in an even bigger main event than the first St. Patrick’s Day Slam.
So, those would certainly be three stories first and foremost among the greatest.”
