Speaking to Gavin Bridge at the Monaco Streaming Film Festival, Khan discussed how Punk has boosted business for AEW.

"We've seen a huge lift in our business metrics since CM Punk arrived in AEW. He's one of the great wrestling stars and he brought a ton of fans with him. We had a huge lift for AEW Rampage when he came in and that gave us the high mark for that show and he helped us hit number one for a new show very early in its launch. He's continued to help lift the ratings in a very difficult time slot for when he's been on. The pay-per-view, we sold well over 200,000 pay-per-views worldwide, which is not just a record for AEW, but far more than any company has done since the 1990s. Our SVoD subscriptions on FITE have more than doubled in just a couple of months since CM Punk signed up, which is amazing because those subscriptions have been accumulating for almost two years," he said.

AEW and FITE have a partnership for international fans, allowing them to watch Dynamite and Rampage live along with pay-per-views.
