AEW President Tony Khan recently spoke to: News12 to brighten up tomorrow’s Grand Slam Dynamite event from Arthur Ashe Stadium, one of the company’s biggest televised events of the year and now their biggest televised port of all time.
During the interview, Khan took some not-so-subtle shots at WWE by calling the northeastern region of the US the “crown jewel” of the wrestling markets, then referred to WWE Crown Jewel as a BS show in Saudi Arabia. Check out Khan’s full comments below.
How AEW hosts many great shows in the Northeastern United States:
“We have a lot of great shows in the Northeast. There are so many great wrestling markets in one geographic region. I will say it: (it is) the crown jewel of the wrestling markets.”
“The real crown jewel of the wrestling markets, not some BS abroad in Saudi Arabia. The real crown jewel – New York City – is where you want to be.”
