Tony Khan on WWE and AEW Rampage tonight – WWE Sports

Tony Khan, AEW President, CEO, General Manager and Creative Head, visits Twitter tonight and invites fans to watch WWE’s Global Talent Strategy and Development Triple H Executive Vice President to watch the Grand Slam Edition of AEW Rampage tonight. I referred to the previous comment at that time. TNT.

You may remember Interview in September 2019 Triple H, in collaboration with Sporting News’ Brian Fritz, promoted WWE Premier Week on USA Network and FOX. At some point, he worked on the story of the “Wednesday Night War” between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite. He repeated his previous comments on what NXT was doing on Wednesday, promoting the rating of the previous episode. Triple H also said it doesn’t matter if AEW held the show on the same night as NXT. He isn’t particularly interested in the fact that they held only a handful of shows. He said the AEW show was “great” but a “one-off show” and used the “marathon rather than sprint” line that has been referred to by critics ever since. He said in the September 2019 interview:

“That’s interesting. I’ve heard that no one is going to participate in the Sitcom War on Tuesday night. It’s just a genre of entertainment in a way, and having this war is, first of all, For me, it came down to doing the best show and I’ve said this over and over again. From day one, we’re on Wednesday on the network. From day one, with RAW, SmackDown, etc. We’ve been trying to make each show better than before, take our talents to another level, and make this product the best, incorporating the differences. That’s where we’ve been for five years. Or whatever it is, we have the opportunity to stay in our time frame, go to TV’s No. 1 cable channel and expand it so that everyone has more opportunities, but the goal is the same. It doesn’t matter to me if there’s another show that night. It doesn’t matter to me if there’s anyone else in the space, especially if I’ve had four or five shows so far. Given the fact, I don’t care about it. And they were great. But they are a one-time show. 52 weeks a year, 2 hours a week life is another animal. Different animals. So it happened for a while since it started happening, so the splash happened soon … People asked me now, we were big on NXT’s rating last week (Wednesday, September 18th) Successful, seen by over 1 million people. Ratings were great. 200% increase in 18-34 demos. At all levels. I’m happy, but it’s a marathon for me. It’s not a sprint. “

“When I got this opportunity in the US, it was an opportunity to stand at the starting line of the marathon. I’m interested in long distance. What the company has done for 50 years, 30 (years) in RAW and 20 (years) in SmackDown. ) I’m interested in what I’ve done. This is what makes this company better than anyone else. On Earth: Weekly, Weekly, Live Sports Entertainment and Doing What We Do And it doesn’t matter what’s there. There’s competition we’ve been dealing with for years. Looking back, I can say a short period at WCW, but we’ve been there for many years. The competition we’ve been dealing with is NFL, Major League Baseball. It’s a big sporting event. It’s a political debate. It’s all there and that’s what we’re dealing with, so I Our goal is to show the best possible show every week. So far, we have a lot of speculation about a two-week show that hasn’t started yet, and we don’t have a track, so we’ll see what the future holds. A record of the long-term success of a two-hour weekly live event in every way, form and format. “
