Tony Khan says he doesn’t want fans to be disappointed with AEW surprises

In an interview with, AEW President Tony Khan talked about AEW’s surprise debut during the February 9th 2022 edition of Dynamite and how he doesn’t want fans to feel disappointed…

“First of all, I do want this to be something that the fans are happy about and I think whenever there’s lots of different names being tossed around, it’s a good thing and there’s a lot of good ideas from the fans and I like to listen to those ideas. Even if you can’t do them all in one night, there might be some stuff you can do in the future. So I have been monitoring that speculation. I like to stay in touch with the fans and follow the feedback. So it’s been really good for us. The last thing I would ever want to do is to disappoint the fans. So I really do believe we’ve got some exciting stuff for them and it should be a great show. And then if there’s more stuff they want to see, hopefully we could do that in the future too. But I know that this Wednesday we’re going to make a lot of people very happy and I love doing that as a fan. The last thing you want to do is have something built up and then people be disappointed. I remember when I was a kid and the higher power turned out to be Vince [McMahon], that was very disappointing because at school we had spent so much time speculating who it might be and I think our big fear is that it was just going to be Vince. So I don’t want that to happen here. I definitely want people to back different names around and then hopefully a lot of people are going to be very happy with what they get on this show and if there’s more people the fans are calling for them, that the fans want to see, hopefully we can get them in AEW too.”

“I don’t want to get too specific to say exactly what’s going to happen, but it’s going to be a great night for the fans and I promise there’s definitely one surprise, and I think there’ll be some other really fun stuff along the way too.”
