Tony Khan responds to Triple H’s comments about AEW being a “secondary promotion”

As previously noted, Triple H called AEW a “secondary promotion” during Cody Rhodes’ Peacock documentary in regards to why Cody decided to make a WWE return.

While speaking to the Orlando Sentinel, AEW President Tony Khan addressed Triple H’s comments…

“We certainly won’t be the secondary promotion at All In. We’re No. 1 in the UK, on TV and with a record gate. I have a lot of respect for Cody. I know these weren’t his words, to be fair, but we’re not secondary in a lot of markets — for the first time in a long time, WWE has been secondary in a lot of markets…. I’m proud of where we’re at and we’re not taking a back seat to anybody.”

Khan also talked about matches being announced for All In during tonight’s Dynamite…

“Looking at the path we’d be on this summer towards All In at Wembley, I always felt tonight in Tampa would be the perfect place to begin match announcements and officially take that next step. It’s perfect timing, the perfect amount of excitement. The 200th episode is important to the network and to the fans. It’s a major milestone for Dynamite, and it happens to be four weeks out from All In.”

Over 76,000 tickets have been distributed for All In at Wembley Stadium.
