Frankie Kazarian Shares What Sets AEW Apart From Every Other Company He's Worked For

Frankie Kazarian opened up about the care AEW shows its talents.

Appearing on the latest edition of Gaw TV, Kazarian, who has been with AEW since its inception, spoke about his time with the company and what sets them apart from all the other promotions he has worked for. He credited Tony Khan and the entire management team for treating the wrestlers like professional athletes, something he attributes to the Khan family's background owning the Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C.

“One of the main things I think that sets AEW apart from any company I've been a part of is the fact that the Khan’s and the management team come from the NFL, and they're dealing with high dollar athletes. So we are treated very much like athletes. We are not just cogs in the wheel. They realized that the athletes are the lifeblood. So the way they take care of us medically, the way they take care of us in terms of travel, the way they take care of us in terms of checking in our mental health is. All these things that are kind of foreign to me as a guy that came up on the indies. You've all been there, where we had to fight and scratch and claw to even get an ice pack after a match or something. Those are all things that AEW has done very well and things that I think are going to help continue to help AEW set themselves apart from everything else going on right now," Kazarian said.

The longtime SCU member is a former Tag Team Champion in AEW but is currently chasing the TNT Championship which is held by his former partner, Scorpio Sky. They faced off for the title last week, but the result was affected thanks to outside interference from Dan Lambert and Ethan Page. Kazarian confronted Sky about it after the match but was hit over the head with the belt, officially ending any chance of a reunion (for now).
