AEW ran its first house on Friday, April 9 with The House Always Wins.
Footage from the house show is set to air on Wednesday's Dynamite.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, AEW President Tony Khan was a big of what the company was able to accomplish with the house show and said it will be distributed to fans in the future, though he didn't have a means of distribution just yet.
When discussing the success of the house show, he brought up the idea of doing an intermission and how it worked at The House Always Wins as it allowed fans to take a break. The intermission took place after Cody Rhodes' street fight with Aaron Solow and the event returned with Max Caster cutting a rap promo on Orange Cassidy to set up a six-man tag bout.
Khan went on to say that he believes an intermission could work at pay-per-view events, saying, "We have great [video packages] and we could do that. Also, a [countdown] clock. If you watch the Road To or the countdown, you might've seen them, but that's even better. They are part of the pay-per-view, putting some [video packages] up. I think it's a good idea. If [Busted Open hosts Tommy Dreamer and Dave LaGreca] like it, that makes me feel a little better. Maybe it's a good idea. If the fans like it, then maybe it's a good idea."
In over the top fashion, I mentioned this being a not-so-great idea as AEW pay-per-views are already four hours long and don't begin until 8 p.m. ET on a Sunday. Another user agreed.
Khan gave the following reply:
I was just curious what people thought because it got a good reaction at The House Always Wins. I’ll mark that down as a No vote for both of you then.— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) April 14, 2021
It remains to be seen if AEW will add an intermission to pay-per-view events.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
