Tony Khan seems again on the notorious brawl that went down at AEW All Out.
All Elite Wrestling President, Tony Khan had fairly the mess on his fingers through the notorious brawl that occurred following the corporate’s All Out pay-per-view.
In case you by some means didn’t know, now-former AEW World Champion, CM Punk determined to air out his grievances through the All Out post-show press convention. Punk would take goal at Kenny Omega, Matt, and Nick Jackson in addition to a number of different members of the corporate. Nonetheless, it didn’t cease there as Punk, Omega, and The Younger Bucks would have interaction in a bodily altercation following Punk’s controversial remarks. The brawl led to Khan stripping Punk and The Elite of their respective titles and all 4 males can be subsequently suspended.
Whereas an organization by no means desires unhealthy publicity, particularly by 4 of it’s prime stars, Khan used the problems as a studying expertise, as he defined when showing on Busted Open Radio:
“Don’t neglect that you’ve nice individuals round you,” he mentioned. “Regardless of who you’re, there are individuals round you. Everybody has totally different conditions, household, associates, individuals at work, individuals in school, however don’t neglect there are individuals who care about you and need to see you succeed. We had plenty of stuff occurring, however there are plenty of nice individuals at AEW that need to make the corporate go and it doesn’t matter what the issue is, these are individuals who need to be right here and make the corporate work.
Earlier than the Match of Champions, lots of people within the event stepped up and mentioned, ‘I don’t care what’s occurring, I like this place, I like you and I need to make it nice. I’m right here for no matter you want.’ To listen to these phrases of reassurance from individuals like Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, and Bryan Danielson means loads. Having lots of people return, it doesn’t matter what you consider them, having individuals who had been away, their returns imply loads. Samoa Joe, who is without doubt one of the largest stars of all time and is a good presence within the locker room, it’s nice to have him again.
Even MJF, who has made a giant distinction on TV, I don’t agree with every thing he says, however I do suppose the wrestling followers like to see MJF on exhibits and it makes a giant distinction for AEW and Dynamite when he’s there. It’s actually been concerning the followers rallying round AEW and the wrestlers and employees rallying. We’ve seen individuals do it time after time, whether or not it was the pandemic lockdown, among the challenges we confronted, absolutely the low level of this firm when Mr. Brodie Lee was sick, on the verge of passing, and when he handed, rallying round him and his household.
That’s the most severe instance we’ve ever confronted and actually, in comparison with that, it’s all sort of…I don’t know what to check being as severe as that. That’s as huge because it will get and places in perspective every thing else that we do. If all of us got here collectively and had been a household then, we will get by way of absolutely anything. For me, I’ve realized loads, however an important factor is, no matter place you’re in, in case your again is in opposition to the wall, simply do not forget that there are individuals there that you could flip to.”
AEW bounced again fairly properly as the corporate held their subsequent huge occasion, albeit not a pay-per-view, final night time within the type of their particular Dynamite version of Grand Slam.
