Tony Khan is feeling the winds of change for AEW and he is optimistic that those gusts will eventually lead the company’s content being presented on a streaming platform.
AEW is only four years young, but the promotion is already building a strong catalogue of content both new and old. In an interview with Variety, Khan discussed the potential future for where all that content could be hosted.
“As we build a great library of historical content, it presents more and more opportunities for a potential FAST entry I think. I think that’s a decision we need to make in part with our domestic media partners, with Warner Bros. Discovery, who have great presence in the world of streaming, and figure out what makes sense for us in terms of our partnership. Because absolutely there is money on the table for streaming pro wrestling events…so there could be great opportunities there.
Tony Khan On Where AEW Streaming Content Could Land In The United States
AEW is under the aforementioned Warner Bros. Discovery umbrella, but Khan left the door open about how things could pan out domestically for them.
Domestically we’re still looking for the right solution, and it’s a very exciting time for us because the streaming business continues to grow here domestically and frankly the value of AEW events continues to grow. I believe as the landscape changes we can expand AEW’s streaming revenue multiple times over.”
Khan may always be busy, but this past week has especially been busy for the AEW President. The company is clearing more way for future historic content as Double Or Nothing just went down this past weekend in Las Vegas and now they’re looking ahead to the forthcoming premiere of AEW Collision, a new Saturday program that will now feature the return of CM Punk.
