During his post-AEW Revolution media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed he isn’t planning on moving the show to Monday Nights anytime soon.
Cody Rhodes recently teased the idea during a media call of his own, but Tony admitted he wished he could have jumped in at that point.
“First of all, what Cody brings to the company is amazing. He’s like one of my best friends and someone I collaborate real closely on a daily basis and on an hourly. When he does those media calls, it’s great and I was listening to it. At times, I am usually smiling or laughing but that would have been one of the times I wished I could have jumped in. That may be his view for five years as his personal view and that might be his view as the Executive Vice President, but as the President, CEO and the owner of AEW, I’m telling you I want to be on Wednesday nights.”
Tony then went on to state that he has no intention of moving, mainly because he never wants to compete with Monday Night Football.
“The most important thing in the world to me is this show and that we got a chance to do it through 2023, we’re on Wednesday nights for four years. I have no intentions of moving for a variety of reasons. I’m really happy with where we are, the relationship that we have with TNT. It’s a night that works great for them and their programming slot and we have been a top performer for them in the night and through the week as an original series. We have been competing with the top programs on cable on Wednesdays. Also, I said from the beginning, I never want to compete with Monday Night Football. I think they’re the greatest franchise on cable, so I don’t want to do it, plus my family and I own 100 percent of the Jaguars, so we are as big a partner with the NFL as anyone. We have this great cable series and franchise and we don’t want to compete with that, but also it doesn’t make sense for AEW. I don’t want to be on Mondays at all,” Khan said.
