Tony Khan On “Difficult & Unpleasant” Decisions Ahead Of All In & All Out

Tony Khan AEW

Tony Khan has difficult decisions to make ahead of AEW’s biggest week ever.

AEW is on the verge of hosting its biggest show ever and possibly the biggest ticket-selling wrestling show ever when All In takes place in Wembley Stadium in London, England.

If that wasn’t enough, Tony Khan is taking his company to All Out just one week later with the annual event taking place on the 3rd of September in Chicago, Illinois.

Tony Khan faced tough choices for Wembley

Speaking on the pre-All In media call, Tony Khan discussed the difficult issues he’s faced having to decide which stars will take part in the huge Wembley shows and who will have to wait until All Out, although that’s a show he’s looking forward to:

“It’s a very difficult decision, and I have to make that decision. It’s very unpleasant and people want to do whatever they can do to be on Wembley, but there’s a great show coming up the following week in another market that is hugely important to AEW and that’s Chicago at the United Center.

“There will be a lot of focus on that show, certainly coming out of All In, there will be a lot of focus on All Out. With a big spotlight on All In, it will provide a great opportunity to promote All Out. The live event weekend is really important. We have a massive ticket gross. A massive ticket gross for Wembley Stadium, which is historic, but also one of our best gates at United Center. We have a great crowd coming in for All Out.

“It’s a great weekend for us to run the event in Chicago. From the live gate alone, that’s a massively profitable event. A lot of it is a bout the real estate that we’ve carved out for ourselves and now we found something special for All In and then come back for Chicago and have a profitable event. I think there will be people clamoring to be on All Out as well, but certainly the big priority now and everyone’s focus is All In, and with good reason because it’s going to be a massive event.”

So far only two matches have been confirmed for All Out in Chicago with Miro and Powerhouse Hobbs set to square off and Luchasaurus defending his TNT Title against Darby Allin. Of those four men, only Allin is also set to compete at All In where he will team with Sting against Swerve Strickland and AR Fox in a tag team coffin match.
