On a recent episode of E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness, professional wrestling legends Edge and Christian weighed in on the formation of All Elite Wrestling. Apparently, Christian has had some experience with the President of AEW, Tony Khan.
"While I was asleep [on New Year's Eve], big announcement, All Elite Wrestling. Yeah, New Year's announcement. well, you're buddies with that Tony Khan, right? I think you were the first guy who told me, 'oh yeah, the son of the [owner of] the Jacksonville Jaguars is a huge [pro] wrestling fan."
Christian said Khan has the money and the passion for pro wrestling to make the new promotion work.
"Yeah, it's pretty big. Well, I mean, obviously, they've got the money for it, right? I mean, [if you own an NFL franchise] and also a football team in England as well. [Khan] obviously has a passion for [pro wrestling]. Having talked to him before, he's a fan of it. And you have young, ambitious guys like Cody and The Young Bucks involved and you saw the success they had with ALL IN. So, like I said, it's very ambitious, but all the luck to them. It's never bad to have places for guys to go out there and apply their trade, guys and girls."
Edge says he's looking forward to seeing which talent will be signed to AEW in the coming weeks, if not months.
"Crazier things have happened. It'll be interesting to see who else they're able to pluck from the indie scene and also who knows with contracts coming up and all that stuff. It could get interesting."
