Tony Khan believes in delivering on his promises.
Every week, AEW President Tony Khan promises the biggest and best episode of AEW Dynamite ever. While it's tough to always live up to such expectations, fans are generally satisfied with AEW's weekly offering with viewership and demographic numbers holding steady or growing.
Speaking to Kenny Herzog of Entrepreneur, Khan discussed how he's able to satisfy fans with his claims in comparison to WWE.
"There's a lot of differences. I don't do really cheap DQ [disqualification] finishes to prolong something. There are other wrestling programs where you might see multiple DQs and countouts in a week. I believe in giving the fans a finish to the match. I believe in not false-advertising programs and people. I might hype something I really believe in, but there's a big difference between hyping something and false-advertising outright, and I've never done the latter. I think that's why we have a lot of goodwill with the audience. Following through on the things you say you're going to do and trying to deliver a show that's in the spirit of what the fans want to see week in, week out and offering fresh matches and fresh programs is a big part of it. You know, not doing the same matches 17 weeks in a row over and over again," he said.
WWE is often criticized for delivering the same match or a similar variation on a match on its weekly television programs.
AEW is set to deliver another big show on Wednesday with the first-ever Blood & Guts match between The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
