Appearing on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, Tony Khan was asked about making the company safer and protecting the performers.

"Yes, I want to have a great pro wrestling company, a hard-hitting pro wrestling company. Those aren't really crazy changes. It's nothing that's going to change the show. It's really more guidelines for the referees than anything else, and it's good stuff for the wrestlers to know," he said.

Fightful Select has the full document outlining the changes and implementations to the company.
