Tony Khan On How “The Fans Are Always Right”

Tony Khan at Full Gear

AEW President Tony Khan has made the bold statement that the fans are always right, and that they can express it any way they want.

With plenty of backstage and on-screen altercations of late between the likes of CM Punk, Adam Page, Eddie Kingston and Sammy Guevara, many fans have questioned how certain storylines have been evolving from it.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan made it clear that the fans are allowed to interpret these things however they want, and that at the end of the day they are always right.

It’s okay. As long as everybody can watch the show and have a good time, however people want to react, it’s fine. The fans are always right. If I left them with a lot of questions going into the pay-per-view, for some people, they’re not used to that. It’s a different way to do it. It was a big success, it brought a huge rating, and I still think we’re going to have a big audience for the pay-per-view and hopefully, it will influence it in a very positive way.

It’s okay for people to have questions and to express their questions in frustration or anger. I think’s perfectly normal. It’s obviously a different way to get from point A to point C. It’s not just going directly through point B in a straight line. I think it’s good. There will be a lot of exciting things, including a lot of great wrestling action on Dynamite, and we’re going to learn a lot about the pay-per-view.

Remember this, the fans are always right. I will always listen to the fans, their opinion is always the most important ones and I hope by the end of the week, the fans understand how much I care about them and pro wrestling and how important AEW is to me and how strong AEW can be going forward for the rest of 2022 and many years in the future.

The 31st August 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite confirmed that CM Punk will once again challenge for the AEW World Championship against Jon Moxley at All Out, whilst a number of other contests for the showpiece event in Chicago were also confirmed.
