AEW President Tony Khan has discussed the possibility of the company expanding its live event schedule moving forward in 2023.
The growth of AEW has been remarkable since the company was formed at the beginning of 2019. The company has toured across the United States for television shows and pay-per-views but to date, the company has only held one official ‘house show’ that wasn’t televised.
Now speaking to Sports Illustrated, Tony Khan has opened up about looking to expand the company’s live calendar in the coming year:
“It makes a lot of sense for AEW to expand our live calendar in 2023 and beyond. There are many places in the U.S. and all over the world where AEW is very popular, and this is a strategic opportunity to expand. We also have Ring of Honor.”
Khan then went on to explain how WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett in his new role in the company could certainly help with that:
“There are a lot of exciting possibilities for us in live events, and Jeff has such extensive experience as a third-generation businessman in pro wrestling. He’s got tremendous experience in a number of fields, including live event promotions and international distribution. His insight and knowledge are very valuable, and I’m excited to have Jeff join our great team.”
Jeff Jarrett debuted for AEW on the 2nd of November edition of Dynamite when he cracked Darby Allin with his patented guitar. Jarrett has joined the company both as an on-screen talent and as the company’s new Director of Business Development.
