Billy Corgan believes Tony Khan and AEW will help the NWA in multiple ways.
Corgan and the NWA have established a working relationship with Khan and AEW, which most notably sees AEW use Thunder Rosa while NWA has Serena Deeb.
When asked on Two Man Power Trip what his relationship with Khan is like, Corgan replied, "We work everything out. Tony has been an incredible partner and I never felt like the NWA or myself wasn't totally respected. The communication is great and we talk fairly often. He's obviously a very busy guy. When we do talk, we keep it to what is most valuable. I'm a fan of Tony. He's been a breath of fresh air to business. It's great to see their success because Tony is paving the way for us to make the argument that there is more room at the table for others. Five years ago, when I was with TNA and I'd go into those meetings, we'd sit in meetings and they'd say, 'It's WWE and no one else.' TNA's biggest year generated like $39 million gross revenue, which is a big number. In those meetings, they didn't care what I was selling. If they couldn't make it happen, what could you say if you were [at a lower revenue], no matter how good your ideas are. Tony is proving there is more and you see that with them expanding their programming. They wouldn't be expanding their programming if there wasn't a desire for more."
