Ahead of AEW All Out, Tony Khan is addressing criticism of the build between CM Punk and Jon Moxley’s AEW World Championship title match.
On the media call leading up to the pay-per-view, Khan shared his thoughts on CM Punk and Jon Moxley heading into the major championship match.
Khan commenting on the atypical storytelling effort:
“I do think it’s been a big benefit. It’s different than what we’ve typically done. It’s from one extreme to another because I’ve done go home shows where all the hay is in the barn and sometimes it can be a challenge and you’re taking practice swings with the ball on a tee.
“I knew it was going to be a fast and furious build up, but the anticipation has been even stronger.
“I wouldn’t say we should do it like this every time, but this is the 15th pay-per-view for AEW, we’ve never done anything like this, and I think it made the build very exciting. it’s raised a lot of questions going into the match, there is a lot of speculation about what the future holds for both men, what the future holds for the championship, and what’s going to happen in part two based on what happened in that match on TV.
“It was also undeniably a great ratings draw for us. We had tremendous ratings last week. The biggest thing of all, which I thought was cool, is we built more interest in the pay-per-view, while doing the biggest total audience the show has done since February.
“I was really pleased with it. What it created was a week of people loudly wondering ‘what the heck is going on here, this is crazy.’ In this case, that was good. The promos that Jon and CM Punk did, I think reeled a lot of people back in.”
Khan has been making the media rounds in support of tonight’s AEW All Out including revealing the truth to the rumors of backstage drama, sharing his thoughts on wrestlers’ dynamics and a major milestone AEW All Out has already achieved.
CM Punk is set to challenge Jon Moxley for the undisputed AEW World Championship at AEW All Out.
