Tony Khan Reveals Combat Sports Stars He Would Like In AEW

All Elite Wrestling President and CEO Tony Khan, who has worked with a number of talents from MMA and other combat sports, recently spoke with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi on the company’s recent signee in Paige VanZant and how she’s currently training to be a pro wrestler, but she’s very well versed in fighting as well as in mixed martial arts and in grappling. Khan also said that Paige VanZant is a natural and she carries herself like a star and with her potential and presence, there is a real chance she could be a force to be reckoned with in pro wrestling.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“Well, she’s training as a pro wrestler but she’s very well versed in fighting and mixed martial arts and grappling.” “She is a natural when it comes to the charisma and the way she carries herself like a star both on television and to the live fans. She has such a great presence. She’s developing her wrestling skills. With her potential and her presence, I think there’s a real chance she could be a force to be reckoned with in pro wrestling.”

Tony Khan also talked about which combat stars he would like to bring into All Elite Wrestling.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“I’m thinking Conor McGregor or Floyd Mayweather, probably, are the two biggest draws, I think.” “I don’t know for sure. I’d probably say one of those two. They’re both huge stars.”

Tony Khan then spoke about how he could take stars from AEW and showcase them in ROH just like he did with Tully Blanchard, Brian Cage, Kaun and Toa Liona and how we could see rosters from both companies be involved with each other, which would be great for both promotions.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“I think people can look at it a little differently after we had the success with Ring of Honor’s Supercard (of Honor) because I think we’ve taken some people that have been important in AEW and presented them again now in a new light in Ring of Honor.” “For example, Tully Blanchard and Brian Cage together in Ring of Honor, and Tully Blanchard starting Tully Blanchard Enterprises with Cage and a new tag team, Kaun and Toa Liona.”

“I think that’s a great example of how potentially there could be fluidity between the roster of AEW and Ring of Honor, which would be great for both companies.”
