Tony Khan Says 'It Made A Lot Of Sense' To Air AEW All In Footage

Tony Khan reflects on decision to air AEW All In footage.

On last Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite, The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson) presented backstage footage from AEW All In that showed the altercation between CM Punk and Jack Perry. The Bucks used the footage to claim it was the reason why they lost to FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) at AEW All In.

Speaking on The Chris Russell Show, Tony Khan was asked if he regretted the decision to air the footage.

"I think it made a lot of sense. First of all, the Young Bucks-FTR ladder match is coming up at AEW Dynasty for the World Tag Team Championships. This is the fourth chapter in FTR-Young Bucks. I believe they are the two greatest tag teams in wrestling, the two best on the planet. The last time they wrestled, Young Bucks-FTR 3, was at Wembley Stadium, AEW All In. A lot happened that day. Those guys at one point, they were the third match on the pay-per-view, and at one point, it looked like we were going to have to call them up and they were going to have to wrestle the first match. They ended up going on in the spot they were in, but the Young Bucks said the whole day, everything that happened, it affected their mental preparation, they weren't able to pray before the match, they were very stressed out. They slipped on the banana peel, lost the match, and they blame FTR and what happened at Wembley Stadium. In hindsight, that's why they refused to shake FTR's hands. We've seen the Young Bucks change a lot. We saw them get really dark during the retirement run of Sting. They've only gotten darker and more twisted. That's why they felt like they should play the tape. It was fascinating to see after the tape played, the reaction Jack Perry got at New Japan. He got the reaction of a superstar. That is not altogether unexpected and it's something very interesting, perhaps a side effect of this, Jack Perry already a big star in wrestling, really the way the crowd connected with him in Chicago, that was interesting. It leaves a lot of intriguing going into AEW Dynamite and AEW Dynasty," he said.

Jack Perry competed at NJPW Windy City Riot in Chicago, losing to Shota Umino and shaking his hand after the match.

The Young Bucks and FTR will meet for a fourth time in a ladder match at AEW Dynasty to crown new AEW Tag Team Champions.
