• Tony Khan Says Top AEW Stars Can’t Leave Him For WWE Anytime Soon
With Vince McMahon retiring and Triple H taking over as the Head Of Creative of WWE programming, many fans expect the WWE product to get a lot better moving forward.
There was even a report which stated that multiple AEW stars feel they would’ve never left WWE had Triple H taken over a lot sooner.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, AEW President Tony Khan addressed the fans that think AEW stars will now want to move back to WWE now that Triple H is running things.
Below is what Khan said:
“There are a lot of changes in pro wrestling. I think it’s going to be really positive for the fans overall.
I am a little amused that changes in the competition, people think it’s going to magically change the landscape.
Some of these accounts, Twitter can be a fun place to follow, but some of the narratives I’ve seen every day for the last week are really amusing to me.
I’ve got people signed here for 5 years and people think that just because the CEO, Chairman, Head of Creative, those people changed in the competition, people I have 5-year contracts with are going to magically switch teams? Good luck with that.
Adam Cole is signed until 2027 now. I wouldn’t expect to see him going anywhere anytime soon. Malakai Black has almost 5 years left on his deal. I wouldn’t expect him going anywhere anytime soon.
Just because these guys had some success under a previous administration somewhere else, they’re not magically going to be going anywhere. Those are two people I like, just as examples of people who have worked under the previous administration.
I’m very amused by that. That’s a narrative I see so-called wrestling writers pushing every day. It’s pretty amusing.”
