- The Financial Times has an article here about AEW's early success. The article includes quotes from yours truly about whether AEW is responsible for the fall in WWE popularity, as well as comments from AEW lead investor Shahid Khan. AEW President Tony Khan was also interviewed for the piece and was asked if he's learning from other companies, like WCW. Khan said he's taking examples of "what not to do" from WCW, and said that if WCW had produced competitive shows and run them logically, then the Monday Night Wars would have lasted for decades. He said that WCW was badly mismanaged and was a "real disservice" to the fans. He took WCW to task for advertising matches that would never happen, as well as for signing talent to six figure deals without ever working.
