Listen to AEW founder, President, CEO, Head of Creative and head booker Tony Khan as he conducted a media call this Thursday ahead of this Sunday’s Double or Nothing 2022 PPV.

He talked about a vast array of subjects, like MJF’s future, the AEW TV deals future, CM Punk and the way he wants to help and be a mentor for young talents, this PPV compared to the previous AEW PPVs, the future of the Owen Hart Tournament, the possibility of making it a one-night-only event, the possible innovations for AEW Dynamite and Rampage in order to develop strong TV products, Ring of Honor, the relationship between DDT Pro and the AEW, making a Women’s match main-event a PPV, adding more titles like Trios and Women’s Tag Team ones, and international touring.


SteelChair Mag took part in the call we now can share with you above. We even had the chance to ask Tony Khan about Johnny Elite and the possibility of signing him full-time. Here was his answer:

John is tremendous, Johnny Elite. It was great to have him debut in the “Owen Hart Tournament” as a Joker. He was a very important person in the tournament. He came in and provided a big surprise. And he also gave a great match to Samoa Joe. And now, with Samoa Joe going into finals, that match looks even more important in hindsight. I think he had a great debut. I definitely brought him in with the thought that this is somebody I would be open to bring him back and interested to bring that in the future. After the great debut match he had, I’m still very interested and probably even more interested now in John coming back. So, yes, absolutely, I’d be very open to that. I do. Johnny’s great, and we’d love to see Johnny Elite again in AEW.
