During a media call to promote the 2023 AEW All In PPV, AEW President Tony Khan commented on the matter…
“As for things that have happened outside of the ring, I can’t comment on the specifics at this time because I still don’t know everything. We’re still learning facts. Based on the information we have at this time, we’re still keeping an eye on that situation. At this time, I think it’s a very inconclusive situation. It differs from other times where we’ve come in and weighed in or acted on a situation based on the evidence because, in this case, with everything we’re looking at, I don’t think we have those facts right now. At this point, I think it’s rather inconclusive. I do very much look forward to the match and we’ll keep an eye out throughout this weekend and as long as it’s a pending situation.”
“Because of the nature of it, I’ll be honest, it’s not like I’ve known for a long time, but on the other hand, I have tried to gather all the facts and information. I still think we don’t have all the facts here. I don’t want to comment too much on the situation, but we’re still gathering information and that’s what I’ve been trying to do for several days.” (quotes courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)
