- Tony Khan thinks there is room for more titles in AEW, and says Trios Titles are a possibility.

- Tony Khan says Dark will primarily be a studio format, but there will still be some editions in arenas. They're taping AEW Dark Elevation ahead of Dynamite for now.

- Tony Khan says Chris Jericho's Cruise isn't an official AEW event, but Jericho is important to AEW so he always wants to help it.

- Tony Khan says he's ahead of where he expected to be with AEW at this point. They landed their television deal extension ahead of what they'd even hoped.

- Tony Khan is planning to expand into doing international work and on the west coast of USA for AEW next year. He doesn't want to put a date on it, but Craven Cottage is a place he wants to make a home for AEW.

- Tony Khan: Not every signing has to be CM Punk or Jon Moxley. Other signings can stack your roster and add to the quality of the show overall. You build from the top and the bottom, and grow.

- Tony Khan says he works directly with Billy Corgan, Scott D'Amore, Ed Nordholm, Gedo, Rocky Romero and others.

- Khan says he's done a lot of favors over the last year and a half and maybe they'll pay off, but it's good karma for AEW.

- Tony Khan doesn't think a lot of the stuff CM Punk was asked to before he left wrestling made sense. Nobody has creative control in AEW, and Khan doesn't know how you can operate a show like that successfully. He told Punk that if something doesn't make sense, he wants to know.

- Tony Khan will be helping produce the Women's Casino Battle Royale at AEW All Out.

- Tony Khan notes that he was happy to loan AEW talent to NWA for Empowerrr and paid the talent to appear on the show.

- Tony Khan isn't sure why the pre-show matches got the misconception of not being important, but he wants to erase that. He remembers seeing Stone Cold Steve Austin on a PPV pre-show as a kid.

- Tony Khan says the AEW TNT Title is not a midcard title, he's not booking or looking at it like that.
