AEW Double or Nothing Media Call
On Thursday, May 26, 2022, Tony Khan of AEW invited the media to engage in a question-and-answer session about Double or Nothing and AEW in general. Tony Khan made some interesting points about AEW, the Owen Hart Tournament, ROH, the relationship with Warner Discovery, and more. However, as we do talk about women’s wrestling, I thought it would be best to note some of the things he stated about women with regards to AEW.
With regards to the Owen Hart Tournament, Tony said he liked how the tournament was going with regards to how many different outcomes were happening. He specified being excited about the finals and who would face off with Dr. Britt Baker which was Ruby Soho or Kris Statlander.
I asked Tony the following:
“It’s great that we have three women’s matches on the card for Double or Nothing. Is it possible with future pay-per-views to have one of the women’s matches be the main event of the PPV?”
Tony answered by stating this:
“Well, we’ve had some great events so far in aw was great women’s matches where we’ve had Battle of the Belts, both Battle of the Belts have been headlined by the Women’s World Championship we had thunder rovers Nyla rose about all the belts to and big success with Dr. Britt Baker versus Rio for the title at the original battle.”
He added: “The belts did a great number and we had the original Grand Slam aw Grand Slam dynamite at Arthur Ashe stadium main event is the biggest TV show in our historic main event by Dr. Britt Baker versus Ruby solo. If we get the match where it’s the main event, it’s unquestionably the biggest match on the show I feel Hangman Page and CM Punk right now is the main event I believe that that would be great and I would love to put that match in the main event spot just like we have for many of the biggest shows in the history of this company, including Grand Slam their biggest TV show, and like I said the first rampage and many others. ”
Tony was also asked about having a women’s tag title and a women’s trio’s title.
“So, I have thought about doing those and I think as we continue expanding the roster and hopefully get more teams and also get some people who have been injured on the shelf back. And the trio’s belt again would you mentioned would be something that I think the fans would really enjoy and a lot of the fans have called for but you know, I also really would love to add more titles and more champions as we go if they make sense.”
