AEW President Tony Khan appeared on Barstool Rasslin' to promote tonight's Dynamite: Grand Slam show that takes place at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City.

Khan was asked if he considered no longer doing media scrums. He said, "To be fair, we've had a lot of positive things. A lot of positive reactions. It's a great opportunity for the talent to get out and speak and obviously, there's a lot of positives coming out of them."

Khan was asked about the chip that MJF holds and if it means that he can challenge for the title at any time. The implication was that he could cash in his title shot at the end of tonight's show.

Khan responded, "At any time at any sanctioned event we can certainly make it happen. In this day in age, with live television and pay-per-view events, all these opportunities, it's exciting to have a contender out there looming and to have this big championship match tonight on Dynamite, certainly, it's that much more interesting to have two of the best wrestlers in the world Bryan Daneison vs Jon Moxley one on one for the World Championship. And to have a great wrestler like MJF looming in the background as a top contender with the right to challenge for the title any time. It's a very interesting championship picture right now in AEW."
