Tony Khan seems to be in trouble as the NBA playoffs could be in the same term as the AEW Double or Nothing. It seems, however, that Khan is not worried and has his own plans on how to solve everything. Given his qualities, we have no doubt that he will make a great job out of everything.
“If there is a Game 7, I will make sure, I’ve actually planned ahead,” Khan said for Richard Deitsch of Sports Media, as quoted by wrestlinginc. “First of all, there will not be any long gap, I’m not going to hold [the show] up.
I planned where we’re going to start a little bit later in terms of when the action’s going to start and we have a little bit more in the window, so I expect the total night of wrestling to be very similar to what we did at [AEW] Revolution”.
“AEW Revolution” featured a “Buy-In” pre-show with three matches. Combined with the main card’s nine matches, the event’s run time totaled just over five hours. Wrestling fans have notoriously despised longer, drawn-out shows, with WWE WrestleMania recently becoming a two-night event to compensate, and Khan explained how he’s going to combat that concern from fans.
“There would be some great action before the game and after the game, in case anybody does end up watching it,” Khan stated. “The pre-show, as we call it the Buy-In, will maybe not have as much action as the last show, and the total night of wrestling will have more because I plan to put more in the pay-per-view, but it’ll be the same total amount of wrestling we’ve been doing.
I’m not trying to keep people forever, but it’s a holiday weekend in particular, and the last one was not, so it might be even better received now. “
Tony Khan: I promise if there is game 7..
He is a man who can make a big deal out of everything, and the fans are optimistic about the new event.
We expect top-notch fun and interesting fights that will delight us. “I’m not going to have [the event last forever], we have plenty of action, it’s going to be a great night,” Khan said. “And I promise if there is a Game 7, a lot of the best action will be at the very end, including the main event … There’s so much on the card, so I plan to leave a lot for later”.
