Tony Khan's New Year's Resolution for AEW in 2022:

"To continue expanding," Khan said of his New Year's resolution. "We've got the Battle of the Belts, and the Owen Hart Cup, and so much more to come in 2022. We've developed the roster so much in the past year, more than I honestly had ever dreamed we could going into the year. So I look forward to what's ahead in 2022. What a year it was. Our four pay-per-views this year happened to be the four biggest pay-per-views we've ever done. Our top four box office shows of all time. The last two are the top two. We've ended up in an amazing place and it's very exciting going into 2022."

The young star Tony Khan wants to push in 2022:

"I think for a variety of reasons, there's a number of people I'm excited to feature in the coming year," Khan said. "For example, it was completely out of everyone's control, but Darius Martin has been out injured and I think he's tremendous. I would love to get him back soon and teaming with his brother, Dante. Dante has become a big star and I think they were tremendous as a tag team.
"When the injury happened, Darius was 21 and Dante was 19. Now Dante is 20 and has been featured so much on Dynamite and Rampage and has now been a main eventer on Dynamite. When Darius comes back, I think he's somebody that could come in and be great for us. So I'm really excited about him in particular. That's an important name to keep an eye on."

"I don’t really pay attention to the noise. I don’t get a big head or read too much into the hype. I have had high expectations my whole life in athletics, being Rick Steiner’s son, I have had to live up to that my whole life so it’s really nothing new. Sure, the stakes are higher now because this is the profession my family was in and they laid the groundwork for me years ago, but I just want to make my family proud, make this company proud.”

“It has been a long time, but I wonder what sort of chemistry we would make now,” said Muto. “If that can contribute to the future, it means something. There may be an opportunity since he made his return.”
