AEW: Tony Khan on Decision for All-Atlantic Title, Jeff Hardy DUI Arrest Update, All Out 2022 Update

Tony Khan Comments on Decision to Add All-Atlantic Championship in AEW held a recent interview with AEW CEO Tony Khan. One of the topics discussed included Khan’s thoughts on his decision to add a new All-Atlantic Championship in AEW.

“So for the international fans and for the international wrestlers on the roster, I felt like it would create more opportunities. But I also don’t think this title or these opportunities are exclusive to the international wrestlers. But it’s a big benefit of the term.”

Khan also gave his thoughts about Ring of Honor Championships being defended on AEW programming.

“The Ring of Honor Championships right now have primarily been defended in recent months in AEW, all across our shows. And I think it has benefited, for example, on AEW Dark and Elevation. First of all, on AEW Dynamite and Rampage, we’ve seen Samoa Joe defend the Ring of Honor World Television title. With Battle of the Belts, we’ve seen Jonathan Gresham defend the Ring of Honor World Championship. And then recently on Dark and Elevation, we’ve had Wheeler Yuta defending the Pure title and Mercedes Martinez defending the Women’s World title. Fans have asked in the past, ‘Hey, would there be champions on Dark and Elevation?’ Now we have had some good championship matches and I think there will still be some to come in the future across AEW shows.

But also I look forward to hopefully getting the Ring of Honor weekly TV back. And restarted under our management and hopefully, the best TV we could possibly do, and on a great outlet. And that’s something we’re still working on. And I think when there’s a weekly home for Ring of Honor, then there will be that much more programming where these championships can live.”
