“Tony Khan cut a big promo on Nick Khan, that kind of stuff, to me, I don’t know, I’m trying to figure out how that works out for my company. Huge shots like that, me personally, I don’t get it. But maybe it’s something… the internet… I remember hearing him mention certain sites (websites) and whatnot. I’m just trying to figure out what is the end game for AEW, and me, personally, I’m not seeing it. I’m just trying to figure out where we’re going with the thing.”
After AEW’s Double or Nothing, Khan revealed that he spoke with NJPW before cutting a promo on WWE. He also spoke of his desire to wotk more with the Japanese promotion.
“I talked to New Japan and I asked them if they thought it would be a good idea and a good promo. They thought it was great and I thought it would be a great promo. It made sense. It was a big weekend for us and it’s true, we have a lot of stuff going with New Japan.
“Everyone is welcome to talk to each other and we’ve done some great stuff with New Japan just in the last few weeks and I think we’re going to do a lot of great things going forward with everything we’ve talked about and agreed to. I’m excited about it.”
