Tony Khan comments on there only being one women’s match at the AEW All In PPV event

As seen during the 2023 AEW All In PPV, Saraya became the new women’s world champion. During All In’s post-show press conference, AEW President Tony Khan commented on there only being one women’s match at the show…

“A lot of the card tonight was featuring as many of the top stars in AEW as I could get, so a lot of the biggest stars in the company were not on this show, and that’s why we have big matches like Miro vs Powerhouse Hobbs, and obviously Ruby Soho vs Kris Statlander next week. I think the pacing of the show tonight was probably the best we’ve ever had, the best show we’ve ever done. So to add more I think would have been challenging. But also, we have so many great stars across both the men’s and women’s divisions, great wrestlers. I think the card in many ways was… I tried to pace it perfectly, and I think we did pretty great. One thing I would note, and you said it yourself, a lot of the card was paying homage to the original All In. The four-way match, Dr Britt Baker participated on the original All In and that was the key women’s match on the original show, and Madison Rayne pointed that out in her commentary as well, that she was also in that original four-way, and Dr Britt Baker participated.”

“I had the Golden Elite in a trios match, kind of a callback to the original All In, and definitely, there were a lot of top stars, men and women, I was hoping to get on tonight’s card, and there were a lot of people that wanted to be on the show and I hope we can continue to get all the top stars in, but also, I wanna pace the shows and be able to have great matches without having to rush through. So I was really excited about the card and also very happy for Saraya, I thought it was a great moment, and I would love to try and get some of those top stars on All Out, and also next year’s All In.” (quotes courtesy of
