On this week's "Busted Open," Tony Khan spoke on working with New Japan Pro Wrestling.

"Yeah, this is a lot of fun. Not only am I a fan of New Japan Pro Wrestling, and I'm very excited about this partnership for business reasons, but also historically, I think it's very fitting that New Japan Pro Wrestling is working with a company that's on TNT and TBS again," Khan said.

"You know, they had a great relationship with WCW for many years and it was a very fruitful partnership. We saw some of the great stars in New Japan in WCW and a lot of the great WCW wrestlers went over and competed in New Japan. So I think it's a similar relationship we have now where both companies are doing great."
