Amidst continued drama and conversation around backstage chaos and discord in AEW, Tony Khan has spoken out about honest reality of the locker room drama.
Tony Khan is making the media rounds in support of this Sunday’s pay-per-view, AEW All Out and has admitted that a lot of professional wrestlers just don’t like each other.
In chatting with NBC Chicago, Tony Khan shared his thoughts that people not liking each other or not getting along can actually be positive in the professional wrestling business.
Noting the unique nature of the industry, Khan said:
“I’m actually pretty excited about it. I think our roster is going to be stronger than it’s been in a long time. There is a lot of competition for spots.
“As long as everybody is being professional, it’s professional wrestling, the first word is professional. The second word is wrestling.
“This is not a doll factory or a normal place of business. Our product here is professional wrestling matches.
“People not liking each other, not getting along, can actually be positive, as opposed to most workplaces where people not getting along is detrimental.
“Not everybody needs to get along in the pro wrestling business, they don’t all need to be friends to do this.
“I’ll be honest, a lot of pro wrestlers don’t like each other, that’s fine with me. I don’t think people watch wrestling to watch people be friends.”
AEW’s flagship pay-per-view, AEW All Out is set to occur on Sunday, September 4, 2022 from Chicago, Illinois.
