While appearing on Sean "X-Pac" Waltman's podcast, All Elite Wrestling president Tony Khan spoke about the promotion and here are a few highlights...
Goldberg to AEW rumors: “I have spent some time with Bill, I really like Bill, a lot, and he’s one of the greatest drawing cards ever in the business. He’s a huge star, a household name, and yeah, obviously, I really like Bill, we’ve bonded a lot, because both of us are passionate about football. It’s fun hanging out with Bill. if the situation was right, obviously. Bill in Wrestlemania less than two years ago was defending the WWE Championship, Bill was a good star, and a great attraction. I haven’t agreed to anything with Bill, but I like him a lot. He’s awesome.”
Challenges for AEW: “It’s gonna be a challenge every week to provide a compelling product, as we go forward and deliver something people want to see regularly, that people will pay to see, and that will make it a profitable business. I think that’s very important, I think it will be on the company to deliver something that people want to see and I think we have the performers that can deliver that, we have the brainpower within the organization to deliver that. So, I think it’s not gonna be easy, everyone has to work really hard, but I think that’s the challenge that everybody’s up too.”
Avoiding WCW's mistakes: “I wanna grow this into being something, that the wrestling community will embrace top to bottom, beginning to end, every show. We’re going to give you things you’re going to enjoy. I don’t want to give anything you’re not going to enjoy now. There is no reason for that. I think what we have is a group of people with so much talent, and so much wrestling know how. I think we’re going to generate a wrestling show like really feels like a live show, that truly anything can have. You don’t want to look half assed deal, you want spontaneity. People had no idea what we are going to do.”
