Tony Khan takes a shot at WWE’s booking. The AEW President detailed further differences in the booking between the promotions.
WWE have been the leaders in the Wrestling industry for many years in the past and will more than likely continue to be so for several more to come. However, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) have emerged as a notable challenger to the throne in the last couple of years.
There are already severable notable differences in the way both companies produce their shows. According to President Tony Khan, however, the differences aren’t just in the way they look but also in the manner in which both companies book their matches.

While speaking with Entrepreneur.com, Tony Khan was asked the differences between AEW and WWE. While answering the question, Khan seemingly threw shade at WWE, noting that AEW doesn’t do “the same matches 17 weeks in a row.”
“There’s a lot of differences (between AEW and WWE). I don’t do really cheap DQ finishes to prolong something. There are other wrestling programs where you might see multiple DQs and count outs in a week. I believe in giving the fans a finish to the match. I believe in not false-advertising programs and people.
“I might hype something I really believe in, but there’s a big difference between hyping something and false-advertising outright, and I’ve never done the latter. I think that’s why we have a lot of goodwill with the audience.”
“Following through on the things you say you’re going to do and trying to deliver a show that’s in the spirit of what the fans want to see week in, week out and offering fresh matches and fresh programs is a big part of it. You know, not doing the same matches 17 weeks in a row over and over again.”
