Tony Khan Says He’s Planning A ‘Major Show’ For Pacific Northwest, Returns Of Danielson, Allin, Swerve AEW

Tony Khan opened up to Swerve Strickland on his SwerveCity Podcast about a variety of topics including touching on when AEW might be expected to touch down in the Pacific Northwest.

Tony Khan recently appeared on Swerve Strickland’s podcast, SwerveCity Podcast where he admitted he misread the fan perception of Sammy & Tay’s relationship, and paid a great compliment to Max Caster and Anthony Bowens.

Although Swerve did not specifically ask about reports that Bryan Danielson was asked to not work at a certain independent promotion as Khan would prefer Danielson’s first post-WWE date in the area to be with AEW in lieu of an indie booking, he did specifically ask about when Defy fans could expect to see AEW in the Pacific Northwest, to which Khan responded:

“Very soon, it’s something I’m looking at. When we come, we’re gonna come with some major show, major event. I would bring a major show there.

“So I’m not saying… is a major show a pay-per-view, or is it really big like a Fyter Fest? Or an Anniversary show or Fight for the Fallen, one of the big events, a Beach Break, it’d be a huge show.”

After a recent Defy show in Seattle where he took on Tom Lawlor in a bloody battle, Jon Moxley got on the microphone and not only called Defy “an official friend of AEW”, but he also told the crowd that if perhaps they made enough noise, the American Dragon might be able to return with him next time he’s in town.

Per previous reports, Defy has been told that AEW wants Danielson’s first match in Seattle to be saved for when they debut in that market.

Swerve had one suggestion for Tony, attempting to prevent disaster by nudging, “Don’t do Beach Break in Seattle,” to which Khan replied, “You never know, it could happen. I did one in Cleveland.”
