Tony Khan talks his relationship with Warner Bros Discovery.

On the AEW Worlds End media call, Khan was asked about AEW's relationship with Warner Bros Discovery, the company that owns the TNT and TBS networks that AEW shows air on. The topic of this relationship has been a hot talking point in the world of wrestling as of late, as many fans are awaiting news on the future of the partnership between the two companies.

In response, Khan noted that he's excited to work with Warner Bros Discovery throughout 2024 before conversations about AEW's media rights begin to happen.

"We have a great relationship with Warner Bros Discovery. It’s amazing now. We’ve been talking to them for several years and this coming weekend marks the five-year anniversary of the launch of AEW. We announced the formation on January 1, 2019 and here we are, days away from the five-year anniversary of that. Warner Brothers Discovery has been an indespenisible partner throughout this journey. I’m very excited about the future of AEW and excited to work with Warner Brothers Discovery throughout 2024 and going forward after that, there is going to be a lot of exciting conversations about AEW media rights. It’ll be a very exciting year and a lot of things are going to happen. We have a great situation with Warner Bros Discovery and it’s been a great year for that partnership."

Khan then said that he can't say what the future of AEW holds for certain, but noted that there is a ton of interest in both Ring Of Honor and All Elite Wrestling.

"We’re under an exclusive agreement. I can’t say what the future of AEW will hold for certain, but I know there is a lot of interest in pro wrestling, and judging by the market, I’ve had lots of interest in Ring of Honor, which I’m holding and looking forward to having an extra card to play later in the coming year in such negotiations. Knowing there is a ton of interest in ROH and that product from outside parties, and knowing there is far more interest in AEW, multiple times more, and far greater rights fees for AEW in the future, it bodes well in the market knowing there will likely be a lot of suitors for AEW. We’ll find out for sure as we get closer to the end of the year. I have to say, it’s really great working at Warner Brothers Discovery, and if anyone came in, it would have to be a heck of an offer because we have a great thing going here and it’s a great place to be. I do value the relationship."
