Speaking to Adrian Hernandez of The Bet Las Vegas & The Sporting Tribune, Khan was asked if AEW is close to running 100 events a year.

"We're moving towards that number, certainly. There are 52 live Dynamites every week, we're live on TBS, between those shows, the pay-per-views, the live Rampage specials, and now House Rules events, we're moving closer and closer to that number," said Khan.

On March 8, it was reported WWE was in talks to legalize betting. When asked if AEW could get involved in legalized betting on matches, Khan replied, "We're already doing it. It's a little interesting to see all this talk about it because DraftKings has a great partnership with AEW and they're offering propositions on all events. It's a huge sponsorship for us with DraftKings, and it's been happening. If people would like to get action on the big events, specifically Double or Nothing, there are frequently great props and match betting on the Double or Nothing main event and some details around the show. When Double or Nothing comes to Las Vegas, you will be able to wager on it on DraftKings. They are a great sponsor for AEW and it's been a great partnership. I've read some things about potentially more of that kind of action, but from what I've seen, there's already a lot of that going on through our partnership with DraftKings."

Wrestling odds are available at for major events. WWE has registered with the Indiana gaming commission, but Colorado is not considering legal WWE betting.

Fightful will continue to update fans on legalized wrestling betting when more is known.
