Former WWE World Heavyweight Champions Edge and Christian took to their podcast, “E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness” where they talked about All Elite Wrestling.
This was when Christian brought up how he’s actually met AEW President Tony Khan a few times and how Khan was telling him how he was a very big professional wrestling fan. This lunch happened prior to the official announcement that AEW would be launched.
In the mindset of the future WWE Hall of Famer, it is never bad to have more places for pro wrestlers to work and thinks this launch of the promotion is a good thing for the pro wrestling business.
“Well, I’ve met [Khan] a few times,” Christian said. “I met him, strangely enough, through Chris Nowinski, actually. And, yeah, I had a little meal with Chris Nowinski and Chris brought him and he was telling me about stuff in matches that I had that I don’t even remember happening.
“I mean, that’s how big of a fan he is and he just wanted to talk to me about wrestling. And I was kind of more interested in the football side of it, so I was talking to him about football and he kept trying to switch the subject back to wrestling, and I kept trying to switch it back to football.
“Anyways, at one point in the conversation, I tried to talk him into firing his GM and hiring me as the General Manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yeah.”
AEW’s first-ever show is set to take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 25th. The pay-per-view event will be called “Double Or Nothing.”
