Tony Khan has seemingly noticed already an improvement in WWE’s shows since Vince McMahon’s Retirement and Triple H being the new Head of Creative.
Triple H has not been the head of WWE’s creative for too long, but fans have already started to see some changes to the product that they are very much fans of. Match times being longer, promos feeling less scripted and robotic, etc.
AEW Owner, Tony Khan recently spoke with DAZN before Wednesday episode of AEW Dynamite and admitted that he still watches the WWE shows pretty often, also admitting that the shows feel better since Triple H has taken over.
Tony Khan has always been open in saying that the better the competition is, the better it will turn out for the wrestling fans:
“Now the competition changing, I think that’s a good thing in some ways. If you like good wrestling, you’re just more likely to want to see it because our competitor has been doing better shows recently than they had been doing, I think. I watch them pretty often, and I think they’ve been better. It seems like that’s the consensus among people who watch them. I do think in general, if it’s gonna get more people watching wrestling, that’s probably not gonna hurt any wrestling company.
And we stand to gain the most in many ways because if you’re a big wrestling fan, and if you’ve been away and you like good wrestling, you might be saying, ‘Where are Chris Jericho and Bryan Danielson? CM Punk’s back?’ So as we get to an exciting point of a lot of people coming back to the company, but a lot of new fans also, I think hopefully they want to embrace the new wrestlers in AEW and also a lot of the big names in AEW that you’ll be able to see on a regular basis, people that are on the show every week and have been going all summer like Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley.
Then again, whenever CM Punk is back, there’s a big setup for an undisputed championship to be crowned.
I think if you’re a fan of good wrestling, it’d be a great time to step back in and check it out because right now, there’s a lot of good wrestling on TV, including Wednesday’s on TBS and Fridays on TNT.”– Tony Khan
