Tony Khan Announces Changes to AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament
AEW CEO Tony Khan held a media call on Thursday to promote AEW’s upcoming Full Gear 2022 event this Saturday. One of the topics discussed included Khan revealing that several changes have been made to the schedule for the on-going AEW World Championship Eliminator tournament.
Khan stated that the reason for the schedule changes is due to Ricky Starks had been dealing with a legitimate injury and was not medically cleared to compete in time for his originally scheduled tournament match against Lance Archer, which has been rescheduled to now take place at tonight’s AEW Rampage show in Newark, New Jersey.
Khan also announced that due to this match being postponed, the finals of this tournament will no longer be taking place at AEW’s Full Gear 2022 event and instead will now take place at the November 23rd Dynamite show in Chicago, Illinois.
MJF Comments on His Working Relationship and Praise of Tony Khan & His Issues with CM Punk
Following this past Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite show in Bridgeport, Connecticut, MJF gave a post-show speech to the crowd discussing his working relationship with AEW CEO Tony Khan and his issues with CM Punk’s negative actions in the company.
“I’d like to get real real quick with all y’all, real quick. Just give me a second. No bullshit. Everybody listen to me real quick. A lot of bullshit has gone on, a lot of bullshit. We all know it. However, let me make something crystal clear. Me and [Tony], we’ve been at odds once or twice. I’m not gonna stand here and pretend that’s not the case. But there’s something I take issue with that I’ve been seeing lately. Everybody make some noise if you’re a fan of professional wrestling. Now, you guys think you’re wrestling fans. Imagine for one second, if you had the opportunity to bring your love of professional wrestling out to the world and create an alternative. Would you do it? This man right here busts his ass, week in, week out to give not just you, but to give all the boys in the back an opportunity to show the world how much we love professional wrestling.
This shit is not ballet. Every time we get in this ring, we are risking our lives. You people understand that? We don’t take that lightly. What I damn sure don’t take lightly is somebody coming in to my company, dropping trou and taking a dump. That shit ain’t happening anymore because this is the place. The only reason why it’s here is because of Tony fucking Khan. Without AEW, professional wrestling is a monopoly. Do not get me wrong, I love WWE, trust me, I love WWE. However, hear me out, your favorite wrestlers don’t get properly and don’t eat properly unless Tony Khan makes that alternative.
Now I’m going to finish it with more honesty. Tony, I’m just gonna keep it real with you. I’m carrying this goddamn place on my back. If I were you, I would pay up in the bidding war of 2024. Connecticut, you crazy motherfuckers better buy this pay-per-view to witness history because MJF is taking home the gold.”
