While speaking to Entreprenuer.com, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about the differences between him and his WWE counterpart, Vince McMahon.
When asked about the differences between himself and the WWE Chairman, Tony Khan said that he doesn’t like to do “really cheap DQ finishes” to prolong feuds. He also noted that he doesn’t believe in “false advertising programs and people”:
“There’s a lot of differences,. I don’t do really cheap DQ finishes to prolong something. There are other wrestling programs where you might see multiple DQs and count outs in a week. I believe in giving the fans a finish to the match. I believe in not false advertising programs and people. I might hype something I really believe in, but there’s a big difference between hyping something and false advertising outright, and I’ve never done the latter. I think that’s why we have a lot of goodwill with the audience.
Moreover, Tony Khan seemingly took a shot at Vince McMahon and the overall WWE booking strategy, saying that he doesn’t like to book “the same matches 17 weeks in a row”:
“You know, not doing the same matches 17 weeks in a row over and over again.”
Tonight AEW is set for what is potentially its biggest episode of Dynamite ever, as the promotion puts on its first Blood & Guts match, which is their version of WarGames.
