Tony Khan Declines Rumors About AEW Doing 2-Night PPV’s

Several professional wrestling promotions such as NJPW and WWE have been running their biggest events of the year for two straight nights, which they have been doing for quite some time now, but it seems that All Elite Wrestling will not be following suit and they won’t be running their biggest PPV Event of the year for two straight nights. Pro wrestling legend and AEW Star Dustin Rhodes mentioned during a recent panel discussion at Terrificon that he had heard the promotion could potentially have a two-day PPV Event “down the pike.”

AEW President and CEO Tony Khan made it perfectly clear when he appeared on an episode of Busted Open Radio that the promotion will not be moving to two-day PPVs despite a number of fans criticizing them for their PPV Events typically being a four-hour show.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“I saw a report that we were talking about doing two-day pay-per-views yesterday and I was like, ‘well, who said that?’ and then I looked and it was Dustin [Rhodes].” “I was like, ‘why would Dustin say that?’ And I love Dustin so much but I was surprised that he said it because it’s not something we’ve really internally seriously discussed.” “For at least for the long-term foreseeable future I still see all the pay-per-views being the great one-day events we’ve been doing.” “A lot of people were like, ‘How is that going to work, what is that about?’ Well, it’s not going to work, it’s not about anything. It’s not true.”

Tony Khan also talked about how All Elite Wrestling has built their PPV Events to be a big deal.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“We have these big pay-per-view events and have built up these franchises with Revolution, Double or Nothing, now Forbidden Door, All Out coming up, and to end the year we have Full Gear. It’s really cool, the growth we’ve had on pay-per-view, lots of exciting things happening.”
