Tony Khan expresses interest in bringing AEW to Japan

AEW President Tony Khan is intrigued by the possibility of going to Japan to hold an event. the promotion is just a few days before the AEW-NJPW crossover pay-per-view event, Forbidden Door, on Sunday inside the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

While doing an interview with Tokyo Sports, Khan stated he would like to hold an AEW event in the country. Because it’s translated, the word “tournament” was translated, which often is the case when using Google translation when someone uses the word “event.”

“I haven’t held a tournament [event] in another country yet, but I would like to try to deliver AEW to the world. Of course, I want to hold a tournament [event] in Japan, and if I do, I would like to invite a lot of new Japanese players. Japan is definitely included in the list of countries where you want to have an AEW tournament [event].”

Khan also praised Hiroshi Tanahashi, who will meet Jon Moxley for the interim AEW World Championship at Sunday’s event. He said Tanahashi is a charismatic and legendary person who leads the industry. He also said that he's an indispensable part of the history of New Japan.
