Tony Khan appeared on Robbie Fox's "My Mom's Basement" channel to talk about the future of AEW. Here are some highlights:

Tony Khan talking about bringing Great Muta in for Grand Slam:

"Great Muta, we'd been talking about for a long time. It was funny because Mox brought it up in the press conference and we were already talking about it. I was like, they're with New Japan. So I was kinda like, 'I don't know if this is like the best time', and we were already working on it. But like, yeah, the timing was very good. I originally wanted to get Muta for All Out and he was not available. Then it just seemed like a good deal for Grand Slam.”

On if there if we will be able to see the AEW library on a streaming service:

"I'm going to continue to work to make sure that the great library we're building is available to the fans in the best possible way. Just getting it available would be a really good start. It would be very easy to just slap them all up there.”

“I got other stuff that people have never seen. For example, a great wrestling show that I'm sitting on that's a pay per view that nobody's ever seen is the House Always Wins 2021. It is an awesome show. People came out and were like, 'That is a pay per view.' Well, we actually did it with a commentary. I guess a good thing to consider it to, would be like, I told the people there this is like an ECW arena show because it's like a tape that eventually people will see and you all are seeing it like a house show but we are recording this with commentary. Tony Schiavone was on commentary and we had a great thing going.”

“The first half of the show Eddie Kingston did, and then Eddie went out and wrestled the second half. Then also in the first half of the show there was a Battle Royal, and the winner of the Battle Royal wrestled Darby at the end of the show, Then I told the crowd that I've got two people in the Battle Royal picked out to do commentary in the second half while Eddie wrestled because we had a small crew. There’s a wild ending and a bunch of great matches, a lot of the biggest stars in AEW, and it's really fun with some great matches. That's in the library. It's cool. The Jericho cruise shows are in the library. There are some other really fun things that we've never released and shows that I'm just saying, ‘Hey, I'm gonna hold these because I think they are great assets.’" 

On Paul Wight:

"Paul, seeing him up and around has been great. Paul Wight is such an awesome presence in pro wrestling and when he's healthy, and can be on the shows again, you know, I want to feature Paul. Unfortunately, a lot of his time in AEW has been hurt. He's great on commentary when he's been able to travel. I think that's something, he has a great future quite frankly. I think he's worked really, really hard at it and deserves opportunities there. So I have a lot of great things to say about Paul Wight."
